Five Element Acupuncture Nature's way of bringing you Health in Harmony

Holistic Approach

Five element acupuncture is generally not symptomatically based, but has the aim that by viewing the person as a whole and addressing the underlying cause of imbalance, all other symptoms will then in-turn become restored to their natural state i.e. through treating the person instead of the dis-ease. Thus also working on many different levels, including both physical and emotional. 

Five-element acupuncture aims to restore whatever is presented, no matter how big or small...

Conditions

Nevertheless, common conditions often initially presented for restoring include:

Physical/Emotional Wellbeing

Fertility Issues (male/female)

Headache/Migraine Relief

Musculo-Skeletal Relief
 
Respiratory/Circulatory Health
 
Digestive Wellbeing
 
Gender Specific Health Issues
 
Energy Metabolism
 
Sleep Regularity
 
Immune System Functioning
 
Lifestyle Balance e.g. helping achieve ideal weight/stopping smoking

Stress and Fertility
 

Since becoming an acupuncturist and continuing post-graduate studies (see cpd), I have become extremely interested in stress relieving and fertility related issues, especially as stress and anxiety can be the root cause of why a person may be unable to function according to how Nature intended, with infertility being one such example of this.

Moreover, it is for this very reason why five-element acupuncture can be particularly so successful, working with Nature, helping to restore harmony and wellbeing. Thus allowing couples, to be in the best condition by which they can then conceive, even if this is achieved through assisted means.

Lifestyle changes are also essential, as is ensuring the process remains a shared experience, whereby both partners make any necessary changes to do everything they can to try and conceive and maintain health. Similarly, it is recommended this also includes the introduction of Kampo (Japanese Herbal Medicine) to further help put the body into balance, whereby it is then able to function in a more natural way (see herbal)

Another important factor is aiming to reduce stress levels and unnecessary pressures that can prevent this from happening, as the aim should still ideally be for it to remain as enjoyable as possible, with the whole journey becoming a wonderful experience.

Therefore, acupuncture can continue during and after pregnancy aiming to ensure everyone remains in the best of health. However, acupuncture can also greatly help couples deal with any emotional upset experienced throughout this whole process.
