What is Chi?

Chi is a Chinese word meaning aliveness, life force energy, or life breath.

Traditional Chinese medicine asserts that ‘Chi’ (pronounced Chee), is the vital life force energy of the Universe, present within every living thing, the life force energy which flows through the pathways of all living forms – in order to maintain health and wellness, mentally, physically and emotionally.

Chi is at the foundation of many health and fitness practices such as Massage, Yoga, Martial Arts, Reiki, Feng Shui and Acupressure.

The history of Chi is much older than Western Medicine and as far back as 2690 BC the study of chi was a Chinese natural science that was called Tao- the way of nature.

The knowledge of the treatment of Chi has been around since the beginning of medicine yet has never really been understood until more recent times.

Some practitioners and individuals use aqua-chi “machines”  to treat Chi, aqua-chi meaning water, and chi meaning living energy or life force.

The ancient Chinese strived to learn how to generate, conserve, and channel Chi for health and longevity. It was the element water that motivated the early practitioners to form their understanding of Tai-Chi, meaning the river of energy that unites the Yin and Yang into a dance to flow into the sea of energy. 

To date no life has been discovered that can exist without water. All life is dependent on water; so is it not plausible that water may be the source of all life by being the carrier of life force itself?

The eastern word for this life force energy is Chi while the western world now refers to the energy in the body as bio-electricity.  Water and its bio-electric (Chi) properties are very important to your health. Understanding a little about water and the energy it contains is going to go a long way when it comes to looking after yourself. Don’t doubt that water has therapeutic properties.  It has been known for centuries.

Since ancient times people have bathed in mineral springs and particularly hot springs because of the therapeutic value for arthritis, rheumatism, skin disorders and many other ailments. Many of these springs have become resorts and health spa’s. Some of the more famous ones are Bath in Avon England, Saratoga Springs in New York USA and Wiesbaden in Germany.

The Aqua-Chi treatment involves both water and energy. This is how we derived the term Aqua-Chi, Aqua meaning water and Chi meaning energy or life force. The body has both a physical component and an energy component. The Aqua-Chi treatment acts on the energy component which in turn effects the physical. The treatment utilizes water, because water can carry and transfer the life force energy we need on a daily basis. When we are low on energy, the Aqua-Chi treatment can assist the body by giving it a useable energy boost.

Combining the life-giving properties of water with a specialized bio-electric charge, the Aqua Chi treatment enhances the body’s ability to heal.  It works through the medium of water by making available EXTRA ENERGY that the living cell can utilize. The bio-electric charge produced by the Aqua-Chi ionic foot spa dramatically increases energy levels and helps detoxify your body.

What are your thoughts on integrative medicine?  Integrative medicine “cherry picks” the very best, scientifically validated therapies from both conventional and complementary & alternative medicine like traditional Chinese medicine.  Some prefer to utilize only conventional medicine while others like the integrative medicine approach.  How about you?
