In ancient Chinese philosophy, human was considered the son of the heaven and the earth. In Inner Cannon, “Human was borne on the earth, his life connected to the heaven, the ‘Qi’ created by the heaven and the earth is called human”. In this sense, human being comes from the Qi from the universe, so human-being himself is “Qi”. For Chinese medicine, human is considered “Qi” person first, then the body with bone and flesh. If “Qi” does not circulate smoothly, it will cause illness. For the treatment, to regulate “Qi”, of course, is the main purpose.
