Nature as medicine:

The traditional practice of Five Element Acupuncture.

Five Element Acupuncture is a system of medicine inspired by nature. Rooted in the Wu Hsing, or Law of Five Elements, this approach to health and wellness is based on direct observations of nature and its corresponding flow of qi in a human being.

Our mission: 

Teach the clinical application of Traditional Five Element Acupuncture.

The underlying principles of Five Element Acupuncture are simple. However, mastering this system of medicine is an art developed through self-cultivation.

Join the Five Element community:
