Classical Five Element Acupuncture developed over 2000 years ago in China, from where it spread into many other far eastern countries, and more recently into the West. Throughout the centuries it has been used to help maintain the health and well-being of millions of people around the world.
The clinical practice of this form of Acupuncture has been passed down from Master to Student through classical texts and practice. This forms an amazing body of ancient knowledge about the human being in health and sickness.
Throughout the ages different masters of acupuncture developed their own styles and schools and traditions of treatment. They added their own ideas and knowledge and developed their own techniques. Pioneers such as Jacques Lavier and J.R Worsley brought this tradition into Europe in the 1960s, founding colleges such as the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Hatton. I trained at the college while it was still in Leamington and while Jack Worsley was still lecturing!
At the core of Five Element thinking is the belief that many physical ailments are the product of emotional distress as much as physical cause.
