Five Element (also known as Wu Xing or the five phases) is an ancient school of acupuncture in which the focus of treatment is for the body, mind and spirit to regain balance or achieve a more balanced state. In other words it treats YOU, not just your symptoms, so the cause of the illness is addressed by considering the physical, mental and emotional areas of a person’s health. This means that I will treat you on your individual element, considering your main health problem together with any root causes, to improve your overall wellbeing – mind, body and spirit.

Within this tradition there are Five Elements – Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. Constitutionally a person has a weakness in one of these elements. Each element controls, is is controlled, by another. Diagnosing the weakest element and treating the meridians in distress will strengthen that element, allowing harmony to be restored, leading to an overall sense of well-being which will have long lasting physical and emotional benefits.
