The simple answer to this is No! Five Element Acupuncture views the body, mind and spirit as whole; it makes no distinction between them as each can impact on how you feel as an individual. Simply put any imbalance or condition will influence on how you function. Physical conditions can lead to symptoms such as depression, anxiety, anger, sadness or frustration. Whereas stress or emotional distress can lead to insomnia, fatigue, headaches, aches and pains.
Five Element Acupuncture goal is to restore the balance and well-being of an individual body, mind and spirit.
