What Is Worsley Five Element Acupuncture?

Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture is a complete system of medicine based on natural principles used in ancient China for over 3000 years. In the Worsley tradition, it is the most complete, comprehensive, and far-reaching systems of medicine in the world. It is unique in that it addresses the root cause of disease, by treating the underlying imbalance of an individual. Its effectiveness is in its curative approach rather than a palliative, (symptomatic) one. 

As a preventative health care system, WFEA has traditionally been used to correct small imbalances before they become more serious diseases. The effect of acupuncture is not simply relief from a specific condition, but an improvement in overall well being, including such things as increased energy, vitality, sense of well being, and better sleep. We have all had the experience of feeling unwell or out of sorts in some way, but not necessarily sick, medically. One does not need to have a “named illness”, per se, in order to benefit from treatment and the restoration of well being. 


The five elements are Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.  These all exist in nature and are inside of us, as we are a microcosm of nature.  We all know from tending a garden, that certain plants need more water, richer soil, and more sun than other plants.  Some do better in the shade, need less water and require fewer nutrients.  We humans are the same way.  WF-EA brings all of this into focus.  We need just the right balance of all the elements in order to be healthy, in good balance, and to feel our best.  Through acupucture treatment this can be achieved.
