Originating in China over 5,000 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest healing modalities in the world. There are many styles of acupuncture, one of which is Classical Five-Element Acupuncture (CF-EA).

CF-EA is an ancient, distinctive, and powerful form of healing developed out of the Taoist tradition and based on the principles of nature.  It looks to 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 you achieve your best possible health.

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

Practitioners of CF-EA treat the body, mind, and spirit. Through ongoing treatment, energy is rebalanced and harmony is restored on all levels, thus promoting the body’s natural ability to heal itself from within.

Each treatment session is designed to address your specific and individual needs so that you can attain health and well-being, and ultimately discover a way of life that is true to you.

In addition to alleviating symptoms, CF-EA can help you regain an overall sense of well-being 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 toward your full potential.
