The Five Element system is based on the elements in nature of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The premise is that we are all part of nature in the Universe. All the elements must be in harmonious balance in ourselves as they are in nature. When the elements are not in balance an imbalance (dis-ease) results. Each person has a "predominate element" and other secondary elements that make up their true nature. The color (skin tones), sound, odor and emotion of the individual establish this diagnosis. The Five Element treatment uses acupuncture to balance the meridians.
