Originated in China over 5,000 years ago. Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing methods in the world. There are many styles of acupuncture, one of which is Traditional Five Element Acupuncture,(TFEA).

TFEA is a very distinctive, and powerful form of healing developed out of the Taoist traditions and based on the principles of nature. It looks on the five elements , Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – which are inherent in all living beings, to determine where an imbalance lies within an individual and to develop a unique approach to help achieve your best possible health.

As a practitioner of this style of acupuncture, I view symptoms as distress signals which indicate imbalances and “dis-ease” within the “ecosystem” of your body. TFEA addresses symptoms by treating the root cause of the imbalance which provides for long-lasting results and prevents the re-occurrence of symptoms and illness. Health is restored and maintained by treating the entire system, rather than trying to fix one part of it.

As a practitioner of TFEA I treat the body, the mind, and the spirit. Through ongoing treatment, everything is rebalanced and harmony is restored on all levels, thus promoting the body’s natural ability to heal itself from within.

Traditional Five Element Acupuncture can help you regain an overall sense of wellbeing and vitality, build your inner strength and resiliency, gain clarity, decrease stress, rediscover your true nature, enhance the quality of your life, and move you towards your true potential.
