The energy Chi (Qi, Ki) - chi - is the main substance that constitutes the universe.
In humans, Chi moves in the system of channels (meridians) - Jing Luo, shimmering like a water flow from one point to another. While the energy is moving, the person is alive. Stopping would mean death. Partial, local bus stop - is a disease.
There are twelve main channels, in the name of which are fed by their bodies: a channel of light (the French acronym - P), the channel of the colon (GI), the channel of the stomach (E), spleen channel (RP), the channel of the heart (C), the channel of the small intestine (IG), the channel of the bladder (V), the channel of the kidneys (R), pericardial canal (MC), the channel of the three body cavities (TR) - the triple heater, gall bladder channel (VB), the channel of the liver (F). The movement of Chi is in accordance with daily, monthly and annual rhythms. Chi must flow freely through the meridians, and it should be enough. Shortness of current Chi in the meridians, or lack of it (and sometimes excess) can cause various diseases.
1. Activating. This growth, normal development and maturation, the movement of blood and breath, etc.
2. Warmed up. Chi controls heat buildup.
3. The protective function.
4. The controlling function. Chi is not only activates, but also controls all body functions, including opening and closing of the holes (ie, urination, defecation and ejaculation).
5. Change of Chi. Essence (mucus, total body water) and Chi can mutually transform into each other.
6. Nutritional function.
