Come home to your Essential Nature

Release, Relax, Awaken

My  —  



Nature consists of the interplay of the Five Elements both in and around us. When this interplay is harmonious, we find vitality and Pure Life as the natural outcome.

Because the Five Elements (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal) constitute a single integral system, an imbalance in one of them causes disharmony in the rest. According to Chinese Medicine, this imbalance in the elements is the root cause of dis-ease, whether it be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. 

Five Element Acupuncture is an ancient and potent healing art for restoring the balance of the Five Elements within us. When the elements return to a harmonic state, we are able to experience greater health and vitality, emotional well-being, increased mental clarity as well as spiritual fulfillment.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything.

 Lao Tzu  

Five Element Acupuncture

Five Element acupuncture treatment consists of activating points, based on the "Spirit" or theme of the point and the laws of nature, to effect change in the body-mind-spirit into a harmonious state of being. Rather than treating symptoms directly, Five Element acupuncture attempts to address the root cause of one's imbalance. This approach follows the general paradigm of consciousness first, body second.
