Five Element Acupuncture is a millennia old medicine rooted in a philosophy that identifies people as an integral part of Nature.
Nature relies on rhythmic cycles & flow of universal energy called Qi (pronounced chee) to grow and evolve. The goal is always to thrive, survive and operate optimally. When disruptions occur it creates a ripple effect that can have far-reaching consequences.
Similarly, within people, when the rhythm & flow of Qi becomes slow, blocked or disrupted it can manifest as a variety of symptoms like pain, physiological dysfunction, infertility, depression & dis-ease.
With a focus on the root cause of dis-ease, fine, sterile needles are inserted at specific points on the body, Qi can be strengthened and stimulated, rhythm and flow restored, thus relieving symptoms and pain.
