Five Element Theory and Traditional Chinese Medicine are the two pillars of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. We will be discussing the Five Elements and how they relate to our lives, physically as well as emotionally and spiritually. The Five elements are: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each of these elements play a significant role in our lives. We will be exploring via questionnaires and discussion our individual elemental constitutions.
