About Acupuncture

Modesty & PeaceTraditional Acupuncture supports the healing of an individual's body, mind and spirit. It is an ancient art that emphasizes health as a natural process. In Nature's cycle, summer turns towards fall which in turn, moves into winter and then spring. So too the body/mind/ spirit energy travels a circular path through the Elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. In Five Element Acupuncture, the two cycles are closely intertwined, bringing the healing energies of Nature into the treatment room.

I encourage you to simply bring yourself -- ailments, complaints, beauty, sadness, and joy -- to this amazing medicine. Together we create a sense of greater wholeness and presence in the world. As the energies in the body shift, guided by the needles, everything in and around you begins to heal and grow stronger. Symptoms that have bothered you for years, suddenly begin to get better and relationships with others change at the same time. You experience yourself as connected instead of disconnected.

For some, this happens right away and for others it takes longer. It's all about trusting the process. It's all about allowing something new to arrive in your life, not about forcing yourself into being "better".
