Five Element Acupuncture is a wholly unique style of acupuncture. The aim is to find what is called the “Causative Factor” of the person’s illness. When we identify and treat the cause, the patient experienced relief from their symptoms that is long lasting.
Five element acupuncture treats you as a whole being. Your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being is all taken into account when assessing your needs. Treatment helps you be at your best at all of these levels. As well as easing of physical symptoms, many people having Five Element Acupuncture begin to experience a profound sense of peace and contentment. Five Element Acupuncture is rooted in the belief that pursuit of inner peace and happiness is our highest calling.
In order to identify the patient’s causative factor a Five Element Acupuncturist uses all of their senses. From the subtle colouring on the face, to the sound of the person’s voice and even their characteristic odour, every scrap of information is used to diagnose the causative factor.
