Five Element Acupuncture

Five-Element Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of Chinese medicine. The Chinese observed that everything in nature (including us) is made of the five elements, wood, fire, water, earth and metal. These elements must be in balance in order for us to be well.

Unique in its approach to healing, five element acupuncture focuses on treating an individual's mind, body and spirit equally because when we experience emotional distress it can result in a physical symptom. The key to relieving that symptom may therefore be identifying the emotional cause and rather than just treating the symptom, treating the patient as a whole.

Patients have found help for;

  • Fertility

  • IVF Support 

  • IBS and digestive issues

  • anxiety and stress 

  • depression

  • exhaustion and fatigue

  • insomnia 

  • symptoms of the menopause

  • back and neck pain.

Another wonderful thing about acupuncture is its power as a preventative medicine. Just as we know that eating a healthy diet and taking regular exercise can prevent us from becoming unwell, receiving regular acupuncture can keep us balanced and support a healthy lifestyle.
