Five Element Acupuncture
Five Element Acupuncture is a type of classical Chinese medical theory that is based on the 5 universal elements as found in nature: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Also sometimes known as referred to as the “Five Phase” theory, it is believed the five elements represent both our controlling and creative energies. When there is an imbalance of these elements, problems on the physical, mental or emotional levels result.
Five Element Acupuncture has been shown to be helpful in treating both acute and chronic conditions. It’s especially helpful for those experiencing physical pain, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, IBS, headaches, chronic stress, fertility issues, sleep disturbances, and other many other concerns.
