In traditional Chinese philosophy,
ch'i or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and
personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that
ch'i must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, "dis-ease"
and illness follow.
Movement is therefore a key element in releasing
blockages. Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of
the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's
natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
