Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that focuses on harmonising the mind, body and emotions. It is a holistic health practice that seeks to diagnose the root cause of illness, and address that by balancing internal energy, often referred to as Qi. It is a therapy that involves the insertion of ultra fine needles into specific points, to restore proper functioning of organs, body systems and substances. It is an incredibly relaxing treatment, during which some patients can even fall asleep!
Five Element acupuncture is an ancient way of viewing the world is based on the movement of energy within nature and the seasons. The relationships and interactions between the Five Elements - Water, Wood, Fire, Earth & Metal - provide an example of how these energies move within our own bodies. By viewing ourselves as microcosms of the natural world (macrocosm), we can identify our core imbalances, constitutional weaknesses, and the root cause of illness.
Despite having each of the Five Elements within us, we all have one Element which is like our default setting; we may exhibit exaggerated patterns, feelings and behaviours of that particular Element if we become unbalanced or ill. Emotions such as fear, worry, grief, anger and lack of joy are considered causes of illness - all disturb the natural flow of Qi.
The one Element that shows itself the most, in everything we do is our dominant Element type. This style of acupuncture believes that most often, the root cause reason of illness or imbalance, is in our dominant Element.
By harmonising the Five Elements, and focusing on the dominant Element, the acupuncturist can stimulate the body's own natural healing, enhancing quality of life on many levels. It is especially powerful in tackling emotional issues, encouraging holistic health through a combination of needles and talking therapy / coaching in clinic.
It is a way of tapping into the true nature of the patient, giving them space and permission to be their true selves, whilst ensuring balance and abundance within the Element, so they can live from a place of strength and success.
