What is Five Element Acupuncture?
The five elements are rooted in nature and comprise all living things. Disharmonies in the five elements occur at birth or shortly after birth. Classical Five Element Acupuncture helps to create balance and harmony in the five elements. Here is brief description of the elements and some of their correspondences:
Wood is the element of spring, affecting the liver, gall bladder, tissues, muscle, nails, eyes, sight, and tears. Corresponding emotions are impatience, anger, control and hope. It is also our ability to envision a future for ourselves and move towards it with both perseverance and flexibility.
Fire is the summer element, affecting the heart, small intestines, blood vessels, complexion and sweat, tongue and speech. Corresponding emotions are joy, lack of joy, laughing, talking, aspiration and anxiety. It is also our ability to connect with others, and have healthy relationships.
Earth is the element of late summer, affecting the spleen, pancreas, stomach, flesh, breast, lips, mouth, and taste. It corresponds to the intellect, and emotions of worry, suspicion, and feeling a sense of lack. It is also related to our ability to nourish ourselves and receive late summers harvest.
Metal is the autumn element, affecting the lungs, large intestine, skin and body hair, breath, nose, and sense of smell. It corresponds to depression and grief. It is related to our inspiration and our values.
Water is the winter element, affecting the kidneys, bladder, and urine, bones, hair (on the head), ears and hearing. It corresponds to emotions such as insecurity and fear. It can also be our physical strength and ambition.
What do Meghan’s clients say?
Meghan has such a great way with people. Going in for a treatment with her is such a gift. She creates such a safe and unconditionally loving space to be able to relax in, be vulnerable in and drop into. The treatments are gentle and effective. After I leave I feel renewed and restored. I highly recommend her!
I love my time with Meghan! I feel she really understands me and what I am needing, even if I don’t have the words to completely express myself! Highly recommend to anyone with anxiety, I always feel so much calmer and grounded after a session!
