5 Element Classical Acupuncture

Five Element Classical Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of Acupuncture known today and it was created by intense observation of the laws of nature. This is most clearly seen in the change of seasons.


The fundamental elements (also known as the 5 phases) are:

Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.


These 5 elements represent the makings of the cycle of life.  Our Elders studied the energetics that are present in each element of nature and applied their findings to the human body.  

Nature regulates itself in order for life to thrive. This same regulation happens in our body but sometimes we need a little assistance in order to heal!  

Studying and understanding this relationship is not only the key to the root cause of disease, but it provides a means of prevention!  If the Fire is burning out we need more Wood!

Our body, mind and spirit are inseparable and therefore should be treated as one when considering health

  • A healthy Body provides the strength needed in manifesting our purpose.  

  • A healthy Mind provides the clarity to understand ourselves and our environment. 

  • A healthy Spirit provides the will to live, fight, flourish and grow with grace and joy.​

Five Element Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine work together to move disease out and re-build your vitality at the same time!
