I am a practitioner of Five Element Acupuncture as brought to the West by the Master and teacher, Dr. J.R. Worsley. It is this type of acupuncture that I will focus on in this discussion and in our treatments.
What is 5 Element Acupuncture?
Quite classically it is a form of medicine which focuses on, and addresses exclusively the CAUSE of imbalance upon which all other symptoms and disturbances rest. The ancient Chinese, in their rigorous study of nature, determined that the microcosm (mankind) was a mere glimpse of the macrocosm (all else). They deduced that the balance within the cycles and seasons of nature were similar within the individual. It is this premise upon which we practice Five Element Acupuncture. Simply put, if we look to each of the seasons, Spring, Summer, Late Summer, Fall, and Winter, they correspond to what we know as the Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Trained acupuncturists discern your imbalance in ONE of these five elements and treat you accordingly. In doing so we thereby act as an instrument of nature to assist you in a return to health and the natural grace of well-being to which you were intended. As a result you experience relief from chronic illness, ailments, and symptoms. Over time, as treatment progresses and balance returns, the medicine that initially addressed your chronic and acute conditions now becomes a preventative medicine that promotes and instills health. Herein lies the elegance of this simple and gracious discipline.
How it Works...
We will start with a Traditional Diagnosis that lasts 2 hours. After this, you will come for follow up treatments that are 45-60 minutes each.
