Achieve Balance with Five Element Acupuncture in Portland
When you feel restricted, unbalanced, physically or mentally sick, typically the flow of your body’s Chi energy, or life force, is blocked or imbalanced. Lori Horan Soule, N.D. L.Ac., of Portland, OR uses Classical Five Element Acupuncture to clear energy blocks, restore flow and transform your entire being.
What is Five Element Acupuncture?
Five Element Acupuncture is based on the ancient Taoist philosophy that sees all of Nature comprised of five universal elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water). You are a part of nature, so the elements are also within you. Each element has a relationship to specific body organs, aspects of your psyche, emotions, personality, and patterns. The balance of these elements in you determines your uniqueness, temperament, and your propensity for specific illnesses.
The elements move within nature, and correspond with seasonal cycle changes. When a quality is more pronounced in a specific season, it can create challenges in nature and in your health. Optimal health is when all of the five elements are in balance. When a person is experiencing illness, one element is weaker than the rest, which leads to patterns of dysfunction in your body, mind and emotions.
Strengthening Your Weakest Element
As a Five Element Acupuncture practitioner, Dr. Horan Soule assesses the elements within you through the sound of your voice, color of your skin, your specific body odor, and your habitual emotional state. The goal of treatment is to strengthen your weakest element to produce enduring positive change, rather than chase symptoms. Physical, emotional and spiritual conditions generally vanish as your treatment progresses. You begin to understand your energetic cycles and patterns, which empowers you to make decisions that are better for your health, your relationships and your life’s purpose.
Five Element Acupuncture supports you in the healing and transformation of old wounds and belief systems. It supports this healing by heightening your self-awareness and increasing your capacity to be present in each moment. Additionally, this acupuncture treatment assists the integration and embodiment of the divine qualities of your soul and spirit.
Even if you are relatively healthy, receiving Five Element Acupuncture on a bi-weekly or monthly basis promotes your inner balance and prevents new health conditions from forming. This acupuncture is ideal for preventative care and health maintenance.
