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.
