River Flow of Chi/Life

River Flow of Chi/Life

Chi/Life dwells in us flowing from the heavens into our finite body to create and build the next generation.

That Chi/Life flows in us through many channels in our body as energy. There are twelve main channels plus eight reservoir channels and each channel has a specific purpose. The main channels carry energy to wherever energy is needed in the body.  Extra energy in the main channels flows into the reservoir channels where the body draws on energy. This occurs when the main channels prevent energy from getting to parts of the body that need it causing body functioning to slow down or stop and we feel sick.

Imagine these energy channels are like a river. When the river is flowing smoothly everything is fine. Farmers can take water from the river for their crops. Cities can use water from the river for people to drink. You can even have fun floating on an inner tube down the river on a hot day. But if something happens to cause a blockage in the river many problems can occur. Downstream the river can dry up and there will be no water to drink and none for the farmer’s crops, while upstream the river can overflow its banks and cause flooding.

With a river, it’s easy to see that a blockage can cause a lot of problems. It is the same with the energy channels in our bodies. If we want to get well and to feel our best we have to keep these energy channels open so the energy flows smoothly and freely. When we have blockages we need to open or remove these blockages and re-balance the energy in our body.

This is where Chiropractic and Chi can help. Out of the many channels of Chi, there is a channel called the Great Vessel that is along the spine. That channel can be greatly influenced by the spines structure and misalignment of the spine can cause blockage of the flow of Chi/life. With Chiropractic adjustments to the spine that have blocked the flow with misalignment of a segment in the spine will be removed so that there is no blockages or anything that limits of the flow of Chi/Life.  Chi Kung can also remove blockages of other channels so that energy can flow through the body in perfect balance.

This balance from structural spine and flow of energy channel brings healing, peak performance, inner peace, harmony, and happiness.
