5E Acupuncture

Maria Cook in Treatment RoomFor Your Wellbeing, Consider Acupuncture.
What a delight to live filled with vitality and a sense of wellbeing; to go through our days energized. Too often we are affected negatively by the stress of modern life. We suffer with fatigue, lack of zest, and diminished enthusiasm. We take over the counter medicine to mask symptoms. We may not recognize that we are sick, but we certainly notice that we could feel better. Sometimes chronic nagging complaints can develop into serious issues. Western medicine can often help when things go wrong, but doesn’t have the answer to improve natural wellbeing and our own ability to heal.

Five Element Acupuncture is designed to treat the cause of illness and to help the whole person, by restoring balance to the life energy. It works on the mind and spirit as well as the body.

As an acupuncturist, I want to know about all aspects of your life and will consider you as a whole person in formulating a treatment plan specifically for you. I want to help you to recover and maintain that vitality, energy and enthusiasm that keeps the bounce in your step and lets the bright light within shine out. Acupuncture can remove blocks to the flow of energy and you can feel the difference! It is a powerful but gentle tool to achieve true wellness for your whole being. I recommend acupuncture as a part of your wellness program.

I invite you to my clinic in downtown Winslow on Bainbridge Island, an easy ferry boat ride from Seattle. Please give me a call and let acupuncture work for you.
