"the basis of acupuncture is an energy force known as qi (roughly pronounced 'chee'). A person’s health is influenced by the flow of this energy, or qi, in the body. If the flow of qi is insufficient, unbalanced or interrupted, illness may occur. Qi travels throughout the body along pathways called 'channels.' The acupuncture points are specific locations where the channels are accessible and where qi is easily directed by the placement of needles, moxibustion or acupressure. Acupuncture cab balance the opposing forces of yin and yang, keep the normal flow of qi unblocked, and maintain or restore health to the body and mind [...] this is a desirable sensation is known as 'attaining qi'";

"Chinese medicine rests on the concept of qi ('chee'), the basic energy force of life, which depends on a balance of yin and yang. Yin is dominant in the winter, which can create an imbalance. 'When the days are shorter, there is less yang, and less energy coming from the sun, which fuels all life processes,' says Dr. Lumiere. 'What we do in Chinese medicine is find other ways to supplement yang qi'";

"naturopathic medicine rests on the philosophy of vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature. While naturopaths have conducted and used clinical research for years, they stress that there are things conventional science cannot measure, such as the body's natural ability to heal. The findings suggest the profession is growing more comfortable integrating science and nature, says lead author Joshua Goldenberg, ND [Bastyr 2013...] during his Bastyr studies, he discovered that the scientific dimension of medicine and the vis, or vitalistic dimension, are not exclusive — they aid each other";

The vis, or the vis medicatrix naturae, is the healing power of nature, the core philosophy of naturopathic medicine. This trip was a chance to reconnect with that awesome power [...] our vis is our vital force. It is the energy we all possess that connects us all. It is our spirit, our empathy, our love, our passion, our joy";
