Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture in Eugene, OR
Worsley Five-element acupuncture is a unique healing modality that harmonizes the elemental balance within the human ecosystem. It begins with a diagnosis of your constitutional Chinese element–Fire, Earth, Metal, Water or Wood–and continues with a deeper understanding of how your constitutional element affects your physical, mental and spiritual health. As the pattern of your qi flow shifts within the physical body, old patterns of behaviour fall away, and new ones begin to form. The goal of treatment is not only to improve the symptoms of the primary medical complaint, but to move beyond pathology to a focus on wellness and individual potential for health on all levels.
Acupuncture is well suited to alleviate the symptoms of chronic illness and pain syndromes, and can increase vitality and feelings of well-being. In addition to supporting reproductive health and emotional balance in women, it effectively supports healing after childbirth and adjustment during menopause. For many people, treatment eases grief and despair after a loss or major life disruption and calms the nervous system in times of stress.
In Five-element acupuncture, the patient-practitioner relationship is fostered through one-on-one health counseling, specific point prescriptions based on your Five-Element diagnosis, and the use of moxibustion to warm and prime the acu-points prior to needling. A minimum of five weekly appointments is recommended for the new patient in order to complete the clearing treatments that reset the patient’s habitual qi flow pattern, and allow for a positive response to simple acupuncture treatments. The initial appointment is a two-hour diagnostic session, and appointments thereafter will last an hour and a half to provide time for individualized, compassionate treatment.
