is an ancient form that works by treating a person on all levels of body, mind and spirit. The five elements of acupuncture are wood , fire, earth, metal and water. Each has its own distinct essence. The elements provide us with the whole energy system and an insight on the process of harmony and balance. When they shift or become unbalanced, a person may develop symptoms. The Five Elements are a part of pathways or meridians in the body that carry the energy (Qi) throughout the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ or a group of organs that govern particular bodily functions. When the energies of the five elements are functioning harmoniously and in balance, the person feels a sense of health and well-being.
At SFG Acupuncture we focus on the cause and treatment of these symptoms in the realm of body, mind, and spirit. Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with medical treatments, psychotherapy and lifestyle changes to optimize benefits and restore balance. By focusing on the energy imbalance, rather than the symptoms, the body can be restored to health and can heal itself. The SFG Acupuncture Five Element approach differs from other acupuncture styles in that it is holistic, treating the entire person, body, emotions, mind and spirit. This approach can alleviate or completely cure symptoms, and also improves energy, mood and restores a person’s sense of well-being.
