FIVE ELEMENT ACUPUNCTURE

The Body Bar offers a unique and ancient form of acupuncture called Classical Five-Element Acupuncture (CF-EA). This style of acupuncture is a complete system of medicine that has successfully diagnosed, healed and prevented diseases for over two thousand years. It is one of the most complete, comprehensive, and far-reaching systems of medicine in the world. It is unique in that it addresses the root cause of disease by correcting the physical, emotional, mental and spirit imbalances that cause symptoms to arise.

 CF-EA is a powerful, yet non-invasive system of medicine. By addressing not only symptoms, but also the root cause of disease, acupuncture treatments can over time lead to a restoration of health, improved immunity, youthful energy, emotional balance and openness towards life. As a preventative health care system, CF-EA has traditionally been used to correct small imbalances before they become more serious diseases. Though the list of diseases and conditions that acupuncture can treat is extremely impressive, the effect of acupuncture is not simply relief from a specific condition. Because CF-EA treats the person as a whole, patients often experience additional unexpected changes such as an overall sense of well-being, greater vitality, mental clarity and improved sleep to name just a few. We have all had the experience of feeling unwell or out of sorts in some way, but not necessarily “sick” medically. One does not need to have a named illness per se in order to benefit from treatment.

CF-EA also honors the concept of health maintenance.  In the Eastern tradition, people seek out their acupuncture practitioner to keep them healthy with regular, seasonal treatments. Once health goals have been met, health maintenance may look like treatment sessions four (or more) times a year to correspond with the change of seasons and the highlighting of an element.

Five Element philosophy is all about the rhythms of nature and witnessing those same rhythms within us.
