Community Acupuncture + the 5 Elements Series: Autumn Treattment

September 15, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Community Acupuncture + the 5 Elements Series: Autumn Treatment

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the five elements are associated with the seasons of Spring, Summer, Late Summer, Autumn, and Winter.

Each element has many associations, including organs, meridians, and characteristics. Because all five elements are present within each of us, acupuncture can be especially beneficial at points of seasonal change, helping us to keep them all in balance, resulting in better health.

Community acupuncture is used for overall well-being and stress management and is facilitated in a group setting rather than on an individual basis.

Participants are fully supported by a zero-gravity chair and will receive a 30 – 45-minute acupuncture treatment involving the insertion of very thin needles to strategic points on arms, legs, and ears intended to elicit a relaxation response.

During this session, we will focus on an acupuncture treatment designed to work with the organs associated with the Chinese medicine element of Earth; the Spleen and the Stomach. We will also cover some of the other correspondences of Earth but special attention to Earth’s pillar of health & wellbeing: Food and Nutrition
