Five Element Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing that has been used in the East for over 3000 years. Today, it benefits us as a gentle, yet powerful form of treatment, relevant in our modern world.
Gabriella practices a style of acupuncture known as Five Element Acupuncture, pioneered in the West by a great master of this tradition, the late Professor J.R. Worsley. Gabriella is based in a beautiful, tranquil setting in London, W2.
The ancient Chinese discovered that the body has numerous points where energy, or Qi, can be readjusted and the flow restored by making contact with a fine needle. By treating the imbalance, it returns to the body its natural tools to fix its symptoms, wherever they manifest, so enabling it to heal itself as it was designed from birth to do.
The Five Elements, found all around us in nature (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water) are also present in all living things and are vital to their good health. Five Element Acupuncture works on the principle that there is in every person an imbalance in the natural flow of the energy of these elements which is that person’s underlying cause of illness. This could consequently mean the inability to reach an optimum level of health or the inability to recover after an injury or illness.
Therefore acupuncture works as a way of reminding the body how to look after itself, through minimum intervention, with the only side effect being a greater sense of general well being, reaching beyond any physical symptoms originally presented. This happens because the skilled acupuncturist combines knowledge, genuine interest in each unique patient and strong rapport, forming a healing partnership with the patient.
