Welcome and thank you for your interest in Five- Element Acupuncture, one of the oldest systems of medicine practiced around the world today.
The Five-Element tradition is based on natural law and the elements that exist within nature. There is a cycle to the seasons and because we are a part of nature, that cycle exists within us as well. When there is an imbalance in the system, symptoms start to develop and can be on any level...body, mind or spirit.
Symptoms are important and they get our attention. However, treating the root cause of imbalance will not only allow the symptoms to leave the body, but will also allow the entire body, mind and spirit to come back into a balanced state. When this happens, we notice many positive changes including for example an increase in energy, better sleep, less stress and anxiety, more satisfaction in our work and relationships, etc. Eventually, an overall sense of well-being is found.
Five-Element treatment is effective at treating most any imbalance or symptom and also helps prevent issues from arising.
Weekly visits are recommended the first 4-6 weeks and then can typically be spaced out to suite the individual.
I am very passionate about this system of medicine and continue to experience benefits personally as well as see the many benefits in the clients I treat.
I welcome the opportunity to work with you to help you reach your full potential in health and in life.
