Chinese Medicine it commonly refers to the vital energy that sustains our body as well as the environmental forces around us. We nourish our internal "qi" through the air that we breath and the food that we eat.
Sea of Qi (chi hai)
This business, "Sea of Qi", is named after a specific acupuncture point on the lower abdomen that corresponds to the "dantian" or centre of life-force energy. This is a pivotal focal point in self-cultivation practices to promote a healthy body and in the control of thoughts and emotions. In ancient Chinese philosophy, "Sea of Qi" encompasses various abstract concepts.
