Five element acupuncture

Five element acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine that supports the natural healing power of the body, by treating the root cause of illness from deep within the body, mind and spirit.

This tradition of acupuncture endeavours to find and treat the cause of disease (the fundamental imbalance within each patient), return the patient to balance and then maintain the health of the patient in a preventative sense.

By treating the patient’s core imbalance, and not just the associated symptoms, the patient is restored to health. 
It is not always useful, and can even be seriously detrimental, to simply eradicate symptoms as the cause of disease remains untreated and ready to manifest in time as yet another set of symptoms.

Everything about each individual and who they are as a whole is taken into consideration in five element acupuncture as the deep, underlying disharmony within the mind and body is carefully addressed. Specific health issues that can lead a person to seek treatment will often improve once this essential level of balance has been reached.

As people today have become more informed and active in their own health care, acupuncture has become an increasingly sought-after form of treatment. This natural form of healing manipulates the flow of energy in the body, restoring balance, removing blockages and increasing energy where needed, without the potential side effects of some Western drugs.

This technique employs the insertion of fine, sterilized, disposable needles into specific points on the body. These points lie on energy channels, and are directly related to specific organs and physiological functions. The results include deep relaxation, pain relief, and healing.

Acupuncture has been found extremely useful for people who have either not responded to conventional forms of treatment or wish to augment Western medicine.
