"acupuncture is the use of very thin sterile needles placed into various points on the body to help balance the flow of energy, which the Chinese call qi. This life force energy flows through 12 meridians, or pathways, throughout the body. Each meridian is associated with major organs and functional body systems. Qi is composed of two elements called yin and yang. Yang is masculine energy thought to be active and full of light. Yin is feminine energy thought to be passive and dark. These energies need to be in balance and harmony. When they aren’t, we become sick with illnesses including depression [...] by stimulating the body’s vital force and restoring balance to the flow of energy, patients experience not only improvement in their depression but in their overall health [...] the needles are so thin that you might not even feel them, except for a slight tingling, heaviness, or a sensation of heat while the qi is being stimulated";

.
[in "What Is Acupuncture" (2017)]
.
"the theory behind acupuncture therapy involves the regulation of the flow of energy in the body called qi [...] which is a central concept in traditional Chinese medicine. Qi is the body’s life force, and disruptions in the flow of this energy are thought to be responsible for all types of diseases and medical conditions. Qi is thought to move through the body along 12 meridians, which represent major organs and body functions. Acupuncture therapy restores the flow of qi in the body, maximizing overall health and wellness";

"this medical modal was ‘vitalistic’ meaning the doctors healed not by fighting disease but by raising the patients’ ‘vital force’. It was believed that living things possessed a tangible property separating them from the non-living.  This concept was shared by nearly all cultures with developed medical systems.  This is exactly what the Chinese called 'chi' and the yogis called 'prana'";

"the force of human creativity and respectful relationships is the inherent healing force in nature [...] here my many interests converge [...] working with the life force to manifest vitality and intelligence, perception and compassion [...] in essence, I aim to apply the old homeopathic maxim of supporting the vital force and removing the obstacles to cure. Or, as the ancient Chinese adage goes'vanquish the evil qi. Support the righteous qi' [...] the integrative models and clinical philosophy of natural medicine are inherently inclined to be eclectic and dynamic, tailored to the vital force and response patterns of each patient as a whole being [...] more fundamentally, we see that applying the core principles of naturopathic medicine means that we need to look at how each agent, each procedure, each intervention serves the vital force [...] we are talking about an approach much closer to the naturopathic tradition [...] the person [...] the ways in which their vital force is expressing symptomatology, etc.";

Each meridian corresponds to one specific organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. The proper flow of qi is thought to create health. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to TCM, everything in nature has both yin and yang. An imbalance of qi [...] results in disease [...] needles are inserted at points along the meridians to restore balance to the qi. Acupuncture points, or the specific locations where needles are inserted, are places where the energy pathway is close to the surface of the skin [...] Korean hand acupuncture: based on the principle that the hands and feet have concentrations of qi, and that applying acupuncture needles to these areas is effective for the entire body";

"TCM acknowledges the presence of energy channels, meridians, in the the body. These meridians carry qi (a vital energy of the body and is pronounced chee) that is responsible for the actions of all our organ systems and bodily processes. The meridians are similar to the vascular system of the body that carries blood, only the qi and its meridians are much subtler [...] in a rudimentary sense, we move qi throughout the organ systems and it is the smooth movement of qi that allows health and balance to occur in the body. When qi becomes stagnated we see pathology arise. Depending on where the qi stagnates will depend on the pathologies we see. Our emotions, outburst of anger, poor digestion, anxiety, and physical pain, are all related to qi and its movement in the body. Through acupuncture we facilitate the movement of qi and thus the harmony and health of the body";

The practice of homeopathy convinces the physician to regard the body as more than a sum of its parts. Unlike a machine, it develops, carries on its function and repairs itself independently. In this sense, everyone carries within him his own doctor. Ancient physicians were familiar with this natural power of the organism to control disease and they invented for it a beautiful expression. 'Vis medicatrix naturae' ([the] healing power of nature). This healing power is a function of the life force itself. Hahnemann called it the vital force. Disease is a disturbance of this force [...] homeopathic medicine aims to correct the disturbed vital force and thus enhances the power of the body to heal itself. It does not aim at removing the symptoms of the parts affected, but treats the cause and restores health. According to Homoeopathy, symptoms are a reflection of me disturbed vital force”;

These channels are called meridians. Qi flowing smoothly through the meridians results in health [p.201…] the main branches of Chinese medicine are acupuncture, herbal medicine, qi gong, tai chi, reiki therapy, and massage. All have the same goal: to improve the balance and flow of energy […] acupuncture involves the use of extremely fine stainless-steel needles inserted into points along the meridians to direct the flow of energy [p.204…] qi gong. The term qi gong means ‘energy cultivation’ […] tai chi […] over time one learns to sense and regulate the flow of chi energy [p.209…] reiki therapy […] the basic concept behind reiki, as in other forms of traditional Asian medicine, is that the body has an energy field that is central to health and proper functioning and that this energy field travels in certain pathways that can become blocked or weakened [p.210…] reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy healing using the hands [p.212]”;

She describes the chakras as funnels of energy that draw in and absorb the universal life energy that we have called qi (Chinese), ki ( Japanese), prana (Sanskrit), and orgone (a term by Wilhelm Reich). I have seen the chakras appear as funnels as well. The qi / life energy that the chakras provide us from the Universe nourishes our systems with the energy we need to live and be healthy. The qi that is drawn in through the chakras then passes into the acupuncture meridians, just as lakes and oceans provide the source of water for rivers and streams [...] today, very sensitive low-light cameras and Kirlian photography are able to capture on film the chakras and some of the levels of the auric field";

"as simple as it may sound, to be oneself is the healthiest way one can choose to be. Not to be is the choice, therefore, that goes against or denies us from being ourselves, our true nature. That is the choice that leads to illness. It doesn’t simply lead to illness of the mind and emotions, but also of the physical body. Yes, choices not to be can lead to disease in the body after long periods of time, from denying ourselves from being who we are. In simple terms, the way this happens is that the universal life force, called chi, prana, or orgone, from different sciences and cosmologies, becomes blocked when we choose not to be. Imagine the soul as a bright flame. The very statement of the soul is 'I AM.'  When we choose not to be what our soul truly is, we become misaligned with that bright flame and parts of ourselves fall into darkness. It is like by choosing not to be who we are, we are declaring a stoppage or a blockage to the flow of life itself. As a result, the chi, prana, orgone cannot flow into the parts of ourselves that are normally supplied by this universal life force that emanates from the soul. This is the essence of what leads to illness. The illness, in all its symptoms and effects on the body, manifests there as a result of the blockage in our life force";

How does the vis medicatrix naturae change as we age?  Does it become weaker?  Does this fundamental propensity to heal from illness come into conflict with evolution’s prescription for a limited life span?  It is hard to imagine that the vis would be at odds with evolution? Does naturopathic medicine, the therapies that elicit the vis, become less effective the older we get?";
