Through meditative practices, the ancient Taoist masters discovered a flowing
current of energy in the human body. This Chi flow was found to follow fixed
patterns through 60 major channels and approximately 365 points, or energy centers, where
Chi gathers and condenses. The flow of Chi replenishes our life-force. Our
body's energy points have both positive and negative poles that spiral subtle wheels of
energy. These points serve as focal centers through which external forces are drawn
in, absorbed, and transformed into life-force. Higher centers, such as the crown,
spiral at a higher rate than lower centers. They slow down the incoming energy, like
step-down transformers, regulating and refining Chi for the body's use.
