Qi 

Qi is the lifeforce energy of the body and is considered one of the Five Treasures along with Shen, Blood, Jing and Body Fluids.

There are eight classifications of Qi. 

 

"Where there is pain, there is stagnation of Qi"

~ Dr. Xie, Chi Univeristy

Tai Ji

Tai Ji is the symbol that represents the continuous interchange between Yin and Yang.

 

Everything can be divided into opposite aspects. All

Yin has Yang parts and all Yang has Yin parts.

 

Imbalance of these parts can lead to disease. 

 

Yang animals are hyperactive, outgoing, dominant,  prefer a cool environment and benefit from a cool diet​

Yin animals are quiet, shy, aloof, withdrawn, prefer a warm environment and benefit from a warm diet 

"Countless words count less than the silent balance between Yin and Yang" ~ Lao Tzu
