What do the Five Elements have to do with Acupuncture?
Five Element Acupuncture is a complete medical system that originates
from the Taoist Science of the relationship between humans and nature,
developed over 3000 years ago. It might be called "A Feng Shui
of the Person". It is designed to transform illness through the
body's own step-wise process of healing. This process can be seen
as an unfolding, opposite to the path that went into creating illness.
How Does Five Element Acupuncture Differ from Other Forms of Medicine?
Five Element Acupuncture focuses on the cause of illness, not simply
the symptoms. Each of us has one particular organ system where the
energy has broken down early in life, leaving a predisposition for
other illnesses later in life. Treating this original weakness or
cause, called the Causative Factor or CF, is the way to your successful
and sustainable treatment with acupuncture. In doing so, all of the
organ systems become equally strong again and able to address their
respective symptomatic issues.
How Does Five Element Acupuncture Create Wellness?
Five Element Acupuncture provides a continued sense of good health
and systemic growth that is altogether healing, preventative, and
transformative. This is accomplished by:
- Maintaining a clear avenue, free from barriers to cure,
- Providing support of all 12 organ systems by balancing their energies
and treating the CF, or Causative Factor,
- Activating the special physical, mental and spirit level qualities
contained within the acupoints throughout the body.
