The 5 Elements

Observing and understanding the laws of nature to better understand the human condition.

Classical Acupuncture makes use of these laws as the framework to unlock the keys to promoting balance and harmony in the body.  

In nature one can easily see the change of the seasons and almost everyone could agree that each season is different from the next in many ways.  While most recognize that there are four seasons, the Chinese realized that there are five.
The Chinese recognize that the late summer is different from summer in that the energy is fuller thus producing the harvest and abundance of food and flora.  With the addition of late summer we now have five seasons that we can correlate with the Five Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

Just as each season leads to the next, each element slowly transforms to the one following in a ceaseless progression of evolution through time and space.
