What Is Stagnant Qi?

Proper blood and Qi (energy) circulation is vital to good health and Chinese Medicine sees poor circulation as the main culprit to almost all ailments.

When vital energy or blood is not circulating it forms pools of stagnation with cells not doing their job of feeding and cleansing the body.

Just like our cars can not run without gasoline, our bodies can not run without energy.

The circulatory system transports oxygen and nutrients to our organs and tissues and carries away toxins and waste products.

It also transports the disease-fighting cells of the immune system that we need when we are sick or injured.

Plain and simple, poor circulation means poor health. In fact, if circulation is poor our organs are actually malnourished.

Stagnant or blocked Qi is caused whenever there is a constriction or blocked accumulation.

An injury, illness, poor diet, unhealthy thoughts and lack of exercise all play major roles in creating stagnant Qi, but the biggest culprit is STRESS!
