Classical Five Element Acupuncture


Schedule an Appointment »


Classical Five Element Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that is still practiced today in its original form, even here in Austin, Texas. It has been perfected and passed down through masters for thousands of years. Five Element Acupuncture aids patients by finding and treating their underlying conditions, as well as utilizing their body’s own healing system. This medicine treats an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional issues and their interrelated nature. Five Element Acupuncture is based on the individual, tailoring treatments to their specific needs. No two treatments are alike just as no two patients are alike. In addition to the reduction of symptoms and suffering, many patients experience a wide range of benefits:

  • Overall increase in health
  • Greater sense of well-being and purpose
  • Improved and positive mood
  • Enhanced enjoyment of life
  • Improved digestion, sleep, and energy
  • Stronger immune system

Isn’t All Acupuncture the Same?

There are many differences between mainstream acupuncture and Five Element Acupuncture. In mainstream acupuncture, the needles are placed into position while the patient is left alone for up to thirty minutes. With Five Element Acupuncture, the practitioner never leaves the room, the needles are rarely left in place for more than a few seconds, and the entirety of the treatment is interactive and personal between the practitioner and the patient. Rather than just suppressing symptoms, Five Element Acupuncture treats the root cause and thus symptoms disappear.
