Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are an ancient system of medicine that is over 2,500 years old. It is based on The Tao, the Source of all living things that exist in the realms of Heaven, Earth, and humans. There is an inherent connection between all of Nature and humans, which is based on harmony, balance, and the movement of Life Force, or Chi among all living beings.
The Laws of Nature can be observed through the movement of the Seasons from Winter to Spring to Summer to Late Summer to Fall and back to Winter. Each Season has an energetic quality described as The Five Elements: Water-Winter, Wood-Spring, Fire-Summer, Earth-Late Summer, and Metal-Fall.
We are part of Nature. Therefore, the energy of The Five Elements also flows in our body-mind-spirit. Each Element also corresponds to the organs of the body. When the Chi is flowing and balanced health and well-being are maintained. When there are blocks in the flow or we become imbalanced, symptoms may arise in body, mind, or spirit, as a call for help, letting us know that we are out of balance.
This Life Force or Chi flows in pathways called meridians, that correspond to each organ. Along these meridians at the surface of the skin are acupuncture points that function to move the Chi in specific ways. When these points are contacted, through the acupuncture needle, the Chi moves, and we are able to support and restore the balance and flow of energy in the body. When the person’s own Chi is flowing properly the body’s inherent healing capacities are able to resolve symptoms, in body, mind, and spirit, and maintain each person’s health and well-being.
In this way Five Element Acupuncture supports the whole person to manifest their authentic self, and to live their fullest life.
