Chi (pronounced chee) or qi is the vital energy life force the Chinese believe to be the basis of all life. Chi circulates through the body through 14 major energetic pathways called meridians. Most of these meridians connect to one major internal organ, with the power then enabling the organ to function correctly. We cannot see meridians with our eyes but modern science has shown their existence through the use of electronic measures. Acupuncture treatments make use of these meridians.
