At Ronald Pratt Acupuncture, we practice Classical Five Element Acupuncture, which differs from more modern approaches to Acupuncture. Five Element Acupuncture aims to treat the underlying causes behind symptoms rather than the symptoms themselves.
Five Element Acupuncture was brought to the West by Professor J. R. Worsley, who believed that most causes of physical, mental and spiritual distress reside within us, rather than due to external factors. When the root cause, clinically referred to as the causation factor, is discovered and treated, the symptoms signaling the imbalance disappear. Once this balance and harmony are restored, our bodies naturally return to a state of overall health and wellness.
Benefits to Classical Five Element Acupuncture
