Ki is a variant of the word "qi," which has Chinese origins. The Japanese more commonly use the word "ki", but its meaning is essentially the same as "qi."
It refers to the life force-or psychic energy-that flows through every living thing, according to Chinese philosophy. A balanced ki is the foundation of good health. Ki is a common term in Eastern medicine (aka Chinese medicine).
The goal of acupuncture and acupressure is to balance the patient's ki by helping energy flow freely throughout the body. Blocked energy-or unbalanced ki—leads to poor health, low immunity and general malaise.
Basically, if you have any ailment, disease or strange body ache, you can blame it on your ki.
It's pronounced like the word "key."
