For over two thousand years the theory of Chi has been the basis of classical Chinese medical practice. Chi is said to flow through a system of channels in the body; when the flow of Chi is disturbed for whatever reason, illness results. Medical treatment aims to reestablish the normal flow of Chi and thus restore one's health.
Unlike the circulation of blood, the flow of Chi is difficult to document objectively. For several decades many scientists throughout the world attempted to demonstrate the existence of such a system of Chi-channels with no success.
When I heard about Master Chia's method of Chi development I was fascinated and decided to try it. After four months practice, I began to sense a consistent feeling of warmth developing inside my abdomen. Soon after, under Master Chia's guidance, I was able to direct the flow of this energy through the major channels of my body at will. Not only did this curious form of energy travel along pathways as described in classical Chinese medical literature but the energy would dwell at sites corresponding precisely to the major classical acupuncture points.
If there is a system of energy flowing through the body, then it is logical to assume that the maintenance of such a flow in a normal and efficient state is important. In Master Chia's method of. developing Chi-flow, there is a tremendous possibility for development of one's physical and mental well being.
