How Classical Five-Element Acupuncture Works
In health, vital life energy, called ch'i, freely circulates along pathways, called meridians. There are 12 main meridians and each is energetically connected to one of the internal organs. Each meridian influences the functioning of its corresponding organ system. When the flow of ch'i is strong and unobstructed in our meridians, our internal organs work together harmoniously and have ample energy. This protects us against disease and promotes healing. When vital ch'i energy is blocked, unbalanced, or depleted, disease manifests in the body or mind. Classical Five-Element Acupuncture unblocks the flow of ch'i in the meridians and directly supports the vitality of the organ systems.
Your Self-Healing Power
You have an extraordinary ability for self-healing! Classical Five-Element Acupuncture helps remove the blocks to this capacity for self-healing, bringing an increased overall feeling of vitality, strength, clarity, and well-being. Symptoms, whether they are of the body or mind, are warning signs that alert us to an underlying imbalanced situation. Some medicines "turn off" symptoms without addressing their underlying cause. This can be problematic because the root problem can worsen and lead to more serious disease. Rather than suppress a symptom or illness, Classical Five-Element Acupuncture strengthens the person to heal disease from the inside-out.
The History of CF-EA
Classical Five-Element Acupuncture is a traditional oriental medical system which originated in China over 2,000 years ago.
Classical Five-Element Acupuncture was introduced to the west by Professor J.R. Worsley. A wonderful leader, teacher, and practitioner, Dr. Worsley taught, inspired and helped countless people with his humor, compassion, insight and healing nature. In his later years, Dr. Worsley designated Dr. Judy Becker Worsley to be his successor, and she continues to uphold the spirit and integrity of the tradition with dedication and mastery.
The practice of Classical Five-Element Acupuncture has been taught primarily in the oral tradition with extensive clinical and hands-on training.
"Instead of asking, What kind of symptoms does this person have? Classical Acupuncture asks, What kind of person has these symptoms, and why?"
