5 element Acupuncture points chart

The fundamental elements of the universe, wood, fire, earth, metal and water, create life's natural mysterious order. 5 Element acupuncture is a method in which the Five Shu points are used with tonification and reducing methods that are based on the five elements cycles.

The five elements of acupuncture believe that people are divided into five types of wood, fire, earth, metal and water, which was recorded as early as in the Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine. ("Between heaven and earth, within the six Jing, there is no deviation from the five, man should also be the ...... first established five forms of metal, wood, water, fire and earth, distinguish their five colours, different from their five forms of people ...... wood-shaped people... person ...... earth-shaped person ...... metal-shaped person ...... water-shaped person... Each of the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water exist in the human body at the same time, and each line corresponds to one of our ways of thinking, and from the moment a person is born, one of these five elements is destined to become the "guardian line" of life. The Guardian line will govern the other four lines and influence our personality, thinking and physical characteristics throughout our lives. Any symptoms that cause physical discomfort or a state of inner discomfort is a manifestation of an imbalance of the five elements, an imbalance caused by climate, diet, stress, shock or trauma.
