The ancient lineage of Five-Element Acupuncture is a unique and highly efficient system of medicine that originated in China several thousands of years ago, spreading throughout the Far East before arriving in the West. The essential and central principles of the practice are to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of disease within a patient rather than the symptoms. Within Five-Element Acupuncture, the core belief is that many of the physical symptoms suffered by people arise from emotional and spiritual issues.
When we are in balance, the body, mind and spirit function happily together and we exist with ease. Our bodies feel good, our energy flows and our minds are calm. However in our current social climate and society we are constantly pushed and pulled and easily knocked out of balance due to external factors, which can cause disease, unhappiness, stress, and emotional discomfort.
Acupuncture has become an increasingly popular form of therapy in the Western Culture, as well as being widely accepted by the Western medical profession.
It is a safe and beautifully effective way of treating the ‘whole’ of a person, and seeks to rebalance the patient with their natural state of harmony and equilibrium, so that they are in health, feel truly peaceful, and can live life as nature intended. Five-Element Acupuncture has helped many patients with conditions including:
· Chronic back pain
· Migraines and Headaches
· Neck Pain
· Chronic Fatigue
· Muscle Pain
· Digestive problems
· Female Hormone Imbalances
