Classical Chinese 5-Elements Acupuncture

The philosophy of healing follows the laws of the 5 elements, which describe how energy moves in the body and world at large. The 5 elements are: earth, metal, water, wood and fire. Each element, when balanced, creates the next. When all the elements, which correspond to each of the major organ systems are in balance, health is restored in the body, mind and spirit.
