About Treatment

Five-Element Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing that supports the natural healing power of the body. It treats the root cause of illness by assisting and revitalizing the patient from deep within the body, mind and spirit, thus helping one live with optimum health and vitality.

As people today have become more informed and active in their own health care, acupuncture has become an increasingly sought-after form of treatment. This natural form of healing manipulates the flow of energy in the body, restoring balance, removing blockages and increasing energy where needed, without the potential side effects of some Western drugs.

This technique employs the insertion of fine, sterilized, disposable needles into specific points on the body. These points lie on energy channels, and are directly related to specific organs and physiological functions. The results include deep relaxation, pain relief, and healing.

Acupuncture has been found extremely useful for people who have either not responded to conventional forms of treatment or wish to augment Western medicine.


Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient art of healing therapy that involves placing physical pressure with the aid of various devices, on key points on the surface of the skin. The treatment aims to balance the body and maintain good health by reducing tension, increasing circulation and strengthening the body's resistance to illness.

This needle-free style of treatment uses the same points and meridians as acupuncture, and applies gentle, firm pressure to the points.  This is an excellent way to gain many of the benefits of traditional acupuncture without the the use of needles.

This style of treatment was derived from the same source as traditional acupuncture, and has been uniquely influenced by a Japanese tradition of blind practitioners.
