5 Element Acupuncture

About 5 Element Acupuncture

I offer a combined approach to treatment using 5 Element theory and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

5 Element acupuncture uses the 5 natural elements, Fire, Water, Earth, Metal and Wood to represent the different emotional drives working within our body. It concerns its self with finding which of these emotions/elements are the root of disharmony within us. By treating the cause rather than the symptom a platform is created for a longer lasting and more profound change.

In some instances, especially acute cases, the TCM method is more appropriate. TCM builds around Yin Yang Theory and the interplay between Chinese Organs and Substances. It can be a powerful tool for change.

At it’s core, which ever modality is being used, Acupuncture focuses on promoting the body’s ability to heal itself restoring balance and harmony.
