The Three Treasures
Jing, Shen, Qi
Are known as the "Three Treasures" in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
They describe three concepts of energy and underly the philosophy
on which the "Three Treasures Teas" were developed.
Jing Jing energy, also called "essence", is the primordial
energy unique to an individual that is passed to them at conception. Jing
is received from one's parents and has no "material form".
Its closest Western counterpart is DNA (our genetic material). This energy
governs the developmental growth processes in the body and the rate and
degree of determination of the body. Chinese Medicine teaches that Jing
can be strengthened through diet, life-style and herbal treatments.
Shen Shen is known as the "psyche", "mind" or "spirit". Shen
is said to be the driving energy behind activities that take place in the
mental, spiritual or creative planes. Moderately weak Shen often
manifests itself as anxiety, mild depression or chronic restlessness. Very
weak Shen is possibly indicated by deeper psychological problems.
Shen can be strengthened through medication, physical exercises
such as T'ai Qi and Qi Gong and by herbal remedies.
Qi Qi is the most dynamic and immediate energy of
the body. This unique energy results from the interaction of yin and yang.
It has been called "energy", "vital energy", "primal energy" and "life
force". A healthy body is a wellspring of constant circulating Qi
which moves around the body, in and out of the body, up and down
within the body. Vibrant Qi has warming properties that bring
about a sense of complete harmony and wellness.
When Jing, Shen and Qi are interacting harmoniously,
individuals live life at peak capacity.
Everything seems to "click ".
Our body, mind and soul are fully engaged.
