About Element Acupuncture

Jacqueline loves the 5 element theory in Chinese medicine so much that she named her company after it!  

This theory describes the interconnectedness of all living things .  Based on extensive observation of nature it lays the foundation for understanding people's tendencies towards certain types of imbalances or health challenges .  It accurately describes character or personality types and can be used to describe the interactions between different parts of ourselves (i.e. different organs and meridians) and between ourselves and others.  

Its main focus is on relationships between the elements (i.e. how they interact with each other, what effect they have on each other, how they enhance each other and keep each other balanced).  Understanding a person’s psychology helps to understand their internal motivations which in turn can explains why they tend toward certain diseases or organ imbalances. For example a high achiever may be characterized as a “liver type” and may be prone to issues such as high blood pressure, migraines, and other typically ascribed stress type illnesses.

Using the 5 element theory as part of her treatment allows for a true preventative treatment strategy.
