Five Element Acupuncture is rooted in ancient Chinese tradition, dating back hundreds of years. It works to bring us back to balance in accordance with natural laws, and to click us back into sync with the cycles of nature. Whilst receiving Five Element Acupuncture, the persons Mind, Body and Spirit are treated, and so the whole person receives the benefit, not just the symptom or complaint. By treating the entire person, it is possible for the body to access its own incredible healing powers, and symptoms can start to heal or disappear.
The ancient Chinese thought of acupuncture as a preventative medicine, and would receive it to stay well. This tradition of acupuncture can help with many problems and symptoms that face us, but also help to keep us in good working order to face to stresses and strains of today’s world.
James became interested in Five Element Acupuncture in 2014, when he was asked to be a volunteer for a student of this tradition of acupuncture. He was working as stressed out hospitality manager and DJ in the West End of London at the time, and had grown to accept that anxiety, stress and digestion issues were an unfortunate part of life, and that he just had to put up with them. The benefits he received from treatment, namely a massive reduction in the amount of stress and anxiety he felt, but also the physical stomach problems disappeared. He was amazed at how acupuncture had helped so much, that he began his studies alongside Gerad Kite of Kite Clinic. The teachings he received are that which were taught by Professor J.R. Worsley, who bought this tradition of acupuncture from the East to the West during the 1960s.
His passion is to help bring people back to a state of balance and wellness, where the Spirit and Mind are nurtured, and the Body can begin to heal. During an initial consultation and treatment, using ultra-fine acupuncture needles, he will discuss your concerns or symptoms, and begin a Five Element treatment plan that is unique to you.
