Hello. my name is Nicholas, I am a classical five element acupuncturist working in and around Fitzrovia, a quiet and friendly neighbourhood of London�??s West End
What is Classical Five Element acupuncture ?
Classical Five Element, or Worsely style five element acupuncture is a simple yet remarkably powerful form of acupuncture brought to the West by J.R. Worsley following his extensive travels to China, Japan and the far east in the 1960 and 70's.
How does it work ?
Health and happiness are our birthright, our natural state of being. Five element acupuncture works to restore that authentic natural way of being by removing blocks to the flow of the 'qi' (chi) and reminding us of our true nature.
Well yes, the meridian network or network of points, common to all mammals, are in fact a network of control panels allowing for the rectification of all functions and aspects of functions that can go wrong with the human body, mind or emotional centre, which the ancient Chinese called the spirit. The name of each point is comprised of two or three characters that describes (usually at a conceptual level) an issue or desirable trait required for us to truly engage with and enjoy the human experience. By carefully selecting points and using them at the appropriate time, great changes can be initiated in our appreciation of life and general wellbeing.
