Traditional Five Element Acupuncture for a modern lifestyle.
Restoring your health and well being.
Acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine principles, which have been developed, researched and refined for more than 2,000 years.
Five Element Acupuncture is a traditional style that works to balance the patient's body, mind spirit. Treating the root cause, alongside specific symptoms, allows the body to re-balance itself. Acupuncture works by balancing our natural energy system, which in Chinese medicine is known as Qi.
Qi flows throughout the body channels or meridians. When the flow of Qi is uninhibited there is good health. However, a disruption in the flow of Qi, or a blockage in the meridians can result in dis-ease and illness can result.
We are very well aware of the stresses that accompany everyday life in this modern world, so lifestyle factors have a great influence on health and well being. If we cannot live according to laws of nature then treating the imbalances may be the best we can do in times of disease.
More than just acupuncture!
As an adjunct to acupuncture the use of Chinese herbs, moxabustion, cupping, guasha, and sound therapy can be included in treatment where appropriate
