Traditional Chinese Medicine
The Energy of Life. The basis of all traditional Chinese medicine is energy.
This energy is the force that enlivens every cell. Our bodies are made up of energy that flows in
patterns of electricity. All of our cells and tissues conduct and transfer energy through protein
molecules, giving us life. This energetic source flows throughout every aspect of our body,
invigorating our organs and powering the processes that link them as well. This electromagnetic
force directs every chemical and hormonal release. The Chinese call this universal energy “Qi.”
