Explores how the Chinese look upon the human body: as an interactive energy system in which life energy -"chi"- flows along bodily meridians. This program examines the therapeutic value of acupuncture, massage, cupping, and chi kung, along with preventive measures for replenishing chi, balancing yin and yang, and promoting harmony of body, mind, and spirit. Until recently, the holistic approaches and almost mystical nature of Chinese medicine have been meet with skepticism by Western medical practitioners, despite the sometimes astonishing results. Illustrates how, as the dialogue between East and West evolves, both are integrating the methods of the other for the overall improvement of health around the world.
