5 Element Acupuncture

This style of acupuncture was introduced to the UK by J R Worsley, who until his death ran the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington.

My training in 5 Element Acupuncture took place at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading (CICM), where the founders of the College were all key members of the in the Leamington prior to opening CICM.

5 Element Constitutional acupuncture works directly with the body’s Yuan Qi and uses a completely different set of diagnostic principles to Traditional Chinese Medicine. It diagnoses a persons Causative Factor or CF (or element) by investigation the colour of the person’s face, the sound of their voice, the emotion they the most difficulty with and the odour that they carry.
