The stresses and strains of modern life can pull us out of balance, leading to a multitude of physical, mental and emotional problems. Acupuncture gently balances the body’s energies, helping to alleviate symptoms and promote physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Five Element Acupuncture is focused on the underlying root of a person’s condition, as well as the symptoms. This approach to treatment can lead to a more permanent solution to health problems.
