English term or phrase: wei chi
Please can you tell me how to write 'wei chi' in Chinese characters.

It means 'protective chi' which is governed by the lungs.

Please write anything else in English as I dont understand Chinese.(I need this for a translation into Japanese and will use the same characters)
