Acupuncture Case Studies

Treating Complex Conditions

During Acupuncture Awareness Week, British Acupunture Council members were asked to share their case studies on treating common and complex conditions.

Within my Traditional Five element Acupuncture practice I treat a combination of common and complex conditions, as discussed in the case studies below.

Individual Treatment

You may say how can you be an expert in such a diverse collection of conditions? This is because each patient may be suffering from a named western medical condition, though each person has a different experience of this depending on may factors, such as age, emotional make up, the environment they live in, relationships and support systems, previous health and personal history and treatments, the positive or negative outlook on life and their constitutional make up.

Constitutional Make Up

Your constitutional make up is the underlying treatment principle of Traditional Five Element Acupuncture. We all are made up of all The Five elements FIRE, EARTH, METAL, WATER AND WOOD. These all explain your constitution and how you respond life and health. We all have what is called either a Guardian Element (ref Nora Franglen) or Causative Factor (ref JR Worsley) This Element is your strength but also can be your weakness. Your acupuncturist will evaluate and treat this Element to bring balance to your system, to gain equilibrium of all the Five Elements for your Qi (vital energy) to flow with grace, for health and wellbeing. Each person has different level of this and your acupunctuist can help you find this
