Acupuncture is the pure application, and deep understanding, of Chi (energy). Chinese medicine has a highly articulated understanding of how our body produces and channels Chi.
The production of our body’s Chi is highly related to the emotional atmosphere within our hearts and bodies. Also closely related is diet, exercise and general lifestyle. So Chi energy can be seen as a result of a positive attitude, good physical fitness and appropriate diet for your lifestyle.
Chi (energy) emanates from the body in horizontal lines like the electromagnetic field of a magnet. This electromagnetic field organises itself in relationship to the electrical impulses of the nerve fibres under the skin. This creates a subtle electromagnetic field around our body with key intersecting (acupuncture) points not unlike a circuit board.
