Our body is always at work, pumping blood, and circulating lymphatic fluids and oxygen. The Japanese call this flow of energy Ki. A concept that captures the mainstay of one’s life force.
Ki is vitality. Ki cannot be touched or seen, but it is inherently present in all functions of our body. It is the animated force that emanates from our physical, spiritual and emotional bodies. Generally, when our Ki is weak we feel tired and our appetite diminishes. If the weakness persists, our immune system suffers and we become susceptible to illnesses.
