Course Overview
Five element acupuncture is an ancient form of healing for the modern world. Its origins lie far back in the mists of time in ancient China, and yet it is totally relevant for the world of today, with all its manifold stresses. It is ideally suited to heal these stresses because it can treat both physical and emotional problems.

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the practice of five element acupuncture, with in-depth analysis of the different characteristics of each of the five elements. The course is intended for acupuncture students and practitioners.

One of the delights of learning about the elements is that it gives us a deeper understanding of human nature, because it is a way of learning more about how we function as human beings. Followers of this course will find that they will use what they have learned to help them in their personal lives in often surprising ways. Once they become aware of how the different characteristics of each element shape each life, they will find that they become more tolerant of these differences in those around them. They will learn to understand that it is not odd if a friend or a partner views life from a different perspective from theirs, because they may be under the control of a different element.

Once you have completed this course, I hope that you will understand yourself a little better, and appreciate how a knowledge of the elements makes every meeting with another person both exciting and challenging.
