A Preventative Form of Medicine

We believe that Five Element Acupuncture can help you to reach your best health potential. As acupuncture is a preventative form of medicine, it can increase your resistance to colds and flu. Our patients notice that while having regular treatment they get ill less often, and if they do fall ill, they recover faster.

In Five Element Acupuncture we treat the whole person and therefore do not distinguish between physical complaints and emotional problems. This means that the treatment of physical problems also effects the way you feel in yourself. By treating the cause of the imbalance, we will help alleviate the symptoms. Acupuncture helps you to avoid or cope better with the stresses you encounter in your life.

Instead of obstacles and problems, you begin to see possibilities and solutions.

Five Element Acupuncture treats you, not just your symptoms.
 The aim is to restore harmony and balance. As this happens your symptoms will ease.
