Call: 07722 358149

Classical Five Element acupuncture available at practices in Lichfield, Burton-on-Trent and Cannock from a highly experienced, qualified acupuncturist.

What is Acupuncture?

ChartIt is a way of achieving and maintaining the best health and has been practised for over 2000 years. Its effectiveness has never been disputed and most modern western doctors acknowledge this.

It works by keeping the body's energy  flowing and in balance. This in turn induces a sense of wellbeing and boosts the person's own natural healing. Five Element acupuncturists go beyond looking just at the symptoms and addresses deeper constitutional imbalances.

What Conditions Can It Help?

There are three main areas where Five Element acupuncture is very effective:

a) Long-term conditions

This is when your symptoms are continuous or appear periodically and conventional medical treatment may have little or no effect. It is often a great help in such cases and may even reduce the need for medication.

b) Preventative

Your energy patterns show up any potential health problems before they happen. Treating any energetic aberration helps prevent future illness and promotes good health.

c) Beyond illness

Treatment can help you achieve your full potential physically, mentally and spiritually. This means that it can help you be at your best and get the most out of life.

Most ailments can be helped due to classical acupuncturists addressing the underlying cause of the problem.

Maintaining Health

Once you start to feel better, this renewed sense of wellbeing can be maintained by periodic treatments. These sessions will continue the healing process and prevent future problems by keeping your energy in balance.

For most people, a monthly or a seasonal maintenance treatment is sufficient.
