Why 5 Element Acupuncture

5 Element Acupuncture with Donna Leon


In eastern  medicine, we believe that people are made of a life force called ch'i.   This means energy or spirit.  When our energy is balanced and smooth we are in good health.  When we are imbalanced we may experience  ill health.  

5  Element is an ancient tradition of diagnosing individuals by observing  the "element", or phase of energy in which they primarily live.  The 5  elements are "phases  of energy" like the seasons.  Winter is the water element. Spring is the wood element. Summer is fire. Late summer is earth. Fall is metal.



I  have studied the art of pulse reading with masters.  Each one of the 12  major pathways (Heart, Lungs, etc) has it's own pulse.  I am able to  feel if you have a block and then treat you to clear that block. Clearing blocks is extremely helpful and necessary to restoring good health.  

My  treatment plan is then based on enhancing your flow of ch'i on your  primary element (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth,Metal).  You change at  a deep level because  I am treating all of you - not just your symptoms.

My patients frequently report significant changes in their lives and are very pleased with my treatments.
