In general, a Blue Discomfort Body Constitution signals that the Qi, the vital energy, does not flow smoothly in the body, leading to a general sense of discomfort. Apart from genetic factors, traumatic life events and a lack of work-life balance are major contributors toward the slowing or inhibition of Qi flow.
Discomfort caused by the slowing of Qi may be particularly pronounced in the chest. Those with a Blue Discomfort Body Constitution may find themselves consciously trying to take deeper breaths to help stimulate Qi movement. When the Qi stagnation gets more serious they might experience a sensation of being short of breath. Various types of pain can manifest and the body overall does not feel relaxed. Psychologically individuals may be more prone to developing negative emotions, feeling ‘blue’ and this could develop into depression.
