Five Element Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional form of natural medicine that has been practiced effectively for over 3,000 years. Acupuncture treatments involve inserting very fine, sterile needles into points along meridians, or pathways, found on the surface of the skin. Imbalances of the meridians can result in dysfunction or disease of their corresponding organs. Acupuncture restores the body’s natural balance and stimulates healing.

Five Element Acupuncture treats the whole person, not just the illness. Every aspect of a person is relevant to the diagnosis and treatment. No two people are exactly alike and treatments are individualized as well.

Because acupuncture is holistic, many people notice other areas or issues improving, in addition to their main complaint. It can be very helpful for conditions that western medicine cannot explain or treat. Once you feel healthy and balanced, acupuncture is great for maintaining good health and preventing future problems.

Moxibustion is a technique often paired with acupuncture, in which small cones of mugwort herb are lit on acupuncture points. This stimulates the movement of qi, reduces pain, and enhances the acupuncture treatment. 

Do you have a kid or teen who could use treatment but is uncomfortable with needles? For children and young teens, acupressure can be just as effective as acupuncture.
