The Five Elements

Traditional Chinese Healing is based on the theory of the Five Elements - Wood, Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Each one relates to different organs and systems in the body which are affected by different emotions.
Energy flows through the elements on a daily and annual basis. When there is an interruption in this flow it can manifest as a disturbance in the body's energy field. We sense this disturbance as physical and emotional problems.
If we can decipher the subtle clues given out by the body by understanding the five element association then we are in a much better position to make any relevant corrections.

I hope to hold my course again at Marlborough Summer School in 2020

The Five Elements Explored is a combination of chapters 2, 3 and 10 of West meets East. It is mainly aimed at natural therapists to help them develop a more holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment. It is particularly invaluable for reflexologists, kinesiologists, acupuncturists and any therapy that takes an holistic view of the client.
