I’ve heard ‘5 Element Acupuncture’ a lot these days and lots of people seem to benefit from treatment of it. What exactly is it?17th November 2017 at 12:50 am #1253
5 element acupuncture is just one of the many perspectives you can take to treat and diagnose when it comes to acupuncture. I don’t know details on why its been separated out though17th November 2017 at 1:30 am #1254
Just as Bal said, it is just a perspective you can take.
We can use yin-yang, 5 elements, bagua or even higher methods.
Each has its own level of sophistication and depth to understand and treat people with it. An acupuncturist is meant to apply all known knowledge anyway which includes 5 elements even if it is not explicitly said so.17th November 2017 at 6:00 am #1255
Oh so there isn’t a specific difference in treatment method?17th November 2017 at 8:25 am #1256
It would just be more focused on using 5 elements as opposed to others is what I’d say.6th December 2017 at 5:53 pm #1262
Some treatments are more effective using a 5 elemental practice, some are not as effective. so you have to see what works on what patient and condition. In my clinic i use all methods I can adopt, and change to what works for that specific patient.
