The fundamental importance of movement

May 21, 2020

“The reason flowing water does not become putrid and the hinges of a door do not rust is because they move. The physical body and its qi are like this too. If the body does not move then the essential qi does not flow. If this does not flow then the qi clogs up.”

Chinese Medicine has many quotes like these that illustrate the importance of movement as one of the foundations of health.
