chinese medicine glossary

Yang qi
  Yang qi refers to the body's vital force or functional aspects in general. Unlike the blood or body fluids, qi (vital energy) is an abstract concept in TCM; it can't be seen and belongs to yang. This TCM term sometimes refers to some body qualities and functions like superficial, upward direction, hyper-functioning, stimulating and light. It is the opposite of yin qi.
yang qi 陽氣
  陽氣泛指身體的能量或功能方面。與血或津液不同,氣是中醫理論中一個抽象的概念,它不能看見,屬陽性範疇。這個中醫名詞有時又代表身體方面,一些凡屬於外表的、向上的、亢盛的、增強的、輕清的特質都屬陽氣範疇。與陰氣意義相反。
