About Quintessence

While ancient Chinese believed that the elements' transformations into one another were orchestrated by the qi, or vital force, the ancient Greek philosophers believed in the existence of a similar force called aether or quintessence (quinta - fifth and essentia - essence, element) and hindu people called this force prana. "According to the general theory of relativity, space without ether is unthinkable", said Albert Einstein in Ether and the Theory of Relativity, an address delivered on May 5th, 1920, at the University of Leyden. Our mission is to help our patients get in touch with the qi - quintessence - prana - bio-electromagnetic force and take charge of their own health.
