For thousands of years, the ancient Chinese have recognized that the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water exist in everything... not only in nature but within ourselves. They did not see the elements as physical manifestations alone, but as a flow of life-giving energy throughout creation. The restoration of balance in the flow of this energy within a person can help them overcome disease, even that of an apparently physical nature. Five Element Acupuncture seeks to discover the root imbalance within a person, looking deeply at all causes of distress- not only physical, but mental and spiritual as well. Correcting the inner imbalance that leads to illness and treating a person on all three levels in accordance with the natural laws leads to a restoral of balance and harmony. Alleviation of symptoms without the correction of this inner disharmony may be of only temporary benefit. However, when the root cause is addressed through Classical Five Element Acupuncture, one experiences more lasting results, an improvement in health and in the quality of life. In this manner, a person is not only able to experience freedom from the symptoms they may have been presenting, but also achieves a greater sense of vitality, overall well-being, calm and clarity of mind, and an openness of heart.
Five Element Acupuncture is a system of medicine that can help to heal at this deep level.
