  • What is Five-Element Acupuncture?

    Five-Element Acupuncture is a system of medicine that balances the body, mind and spirit. The underlying philosophy states that the universe is made up of one vital life-force (qi) manifesting as five distinct elements: water, wood, fire, earth and metal. When the elements are balanced, order is maintained. When there is an imbalance, symptoms appear. By diagnosing the cause, the acupuncturist stimulates acupuncture points with fine needles to restore the natural balance.

    “The training is intensive and the learning is tough at times but the support is there throughout. This course has been life-changing for me and I couldn’t be more grateful to Gerad, Johnny and their wonderful team of supervisors for allowing me to give others the gift of five-element acupuncture.”

    Beverley Reeves

    “This course has truly changed my whole perspective on life. There are few teachers that can hold their students for hours on end but Gerad is a natural communicator who is clearly a master of this tradition and what he and the team have managed to impart to us during our time together, is incredible.”

    Alex Charles

    ““Gerad’s teaching is passionate, simple yet extremely profound and practical. The learning style is so experiential - it’s such a treat for the heart. I am still in awe at how it has helped me build confidence with hands-on skills in the shortest possible time. This intensive course is truly one of a kind! I am very grateful!””

    Gerad's Acknowledgements  

    I would like to express my deep gratitude to JR and JB Worsley, my former teachers, for their guidance, enthusiastic encouragement and their dedication to the preservation and teaching of this system of medicine. 

    I would also like to thank all of my teachers from the College of Traditional Acupuncture and in particular Niki Bilton who supported me in my early years in practice. 

    Thanks to Peter Fleming and Ann Farley for helping me learn how to ‘listen’, Johnny Childs, Mary Ellen Klee and Wren Winfield for all her support and all of my patients and students who have been instrumental in helping me learn my craft and give me the confidence to share the material here at Yellow Path.
