Personality and Acupuncture

The core of your personality affects how you interact with the world around you, how you assess each situation in daily life. The Five Element system helps you understand and encourages you to embrace who you are.

The Five Element system has been practiced for thousands of years originating in China and Japan and is the method used for Traditional Five Element Acupuncture.

The five different elements are Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.  Each element has certain properties which align with a different personality; your Causative Factor or Guardian Element. We are made up of all the Five Elements which have to work together creating the system of  Body, Mind and Spirit functions to Flow, Control and Feed.

We all have a dominant Element known as the Guardian Element, with two other inner Elements that we can relate to.  For example, you could be mostly a Wood Element with Fire and Metal element tendencies.

The role of Guardian Element, our primary element is to protect and treat but it also enables all of the Five Elements to work together with the result that our Body, Mind and Spirit flourish.

Each Element is tempered by the others. None exists alone and its action is always modified and enhanced by the element surrounding it. Good health is where an Element is given the space to unfold as it needs to, while being supported by and supporting other elements. Poor health is the result of Elements not working together.

Traditional Five Element Acupuncture identifies your Guardian Element, your inner Elements to treat and re-balance your Body, Mind and Spirit.

I regularly write articles relating to specific Elements in my Blog. These can provide insight into the healing process relating to Acupuncture and the connection with health and wellbeing.
