What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly practiced forms of medicine in the world and is used by one-third of the world’s population as a primary healthcare system.  Acupuncturists insert sterile, hair-thin, single-use needles into the body with a specific intention to elicit an appropriate movement of energy.  The desired result is to offer the patient a concrete sense of spiritual, emotional, and physical balance.  Patients who pursue ongoing treatment for maintenance and promotion of good health report: staying well longer and recovering from illness more quickly; improved stamina and vitality; improved capacity to positively influence their own health; reductions in long-term health-care costs and less frequent visits to physicians; and deepened and more harmonious relationships with others.

Five-Element Acupuncture treats you at a foundational or core level.  Similar to tuning a musical instrument, this system uses the acupuncture points to immediately restore harmony within the body systems.  It is based in the ancient Chinese view that the laws of balance in nature operate equally in the human body, mind, and spirit.  The strength of this holistic medicine is in its simplicity and capacity to treat each person as a unique individual.
