What is 5 Element Acupuncture?

The Chinese saw the Five Elements of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood as forces of nature whose energies pass through our bodies as organs. An illness is said to relate to an imbalance in the relationship of the elements to one another.

Treatment is directed at correcting this imbalance by inserting fine needles into specific points on the body. These points are the same as those used for thousands of years. This long history has meant that a body of medical knowledge about us in health and ill health has been developed over centuries.
