Five-Element Acupuncture

Season 2, Ep. 9

Countless people all over the world swear by the ancient practice of acupuncture, where very fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes. I've had acupuncture many times and I find it very clarifying.

In this episode I speak to Gerad Kite, a Five Element acupuncture master who runs a clinic and a training school in London. He talks about the origins of acupuncture, the philosophy behind Five Element and how acupuncture is best utilised.

Undergraduate Programme

Our training covers the theory, philosophy and clinical skills required to become a professional Five-Element acupuncturist

What is Five-Element acupuncture?

Five-Element philosophy, theory and practice (acupuncture) is a spiritual tradition and a system of medicine that maintains the balance of the body, mind and spirit. This balance sustains our natural intelligence and promotes a peaceful and harmonious way of life.

The underlying philosophy understands that the entire 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 of imbalance in an individual, the Five-Element acupuncturist affects the flow and strength of energy found at the acupuncture points. The use of warmth (moxa) and fine needles restores the natural order.
