In addition to traditional acupuncture, at Steelsmith Natural Health Center we also provide Five Element Acupuncture—a branch of Chinese medicine that focuses less on treating physical symptoms and more on treating the emotions.
Five Element Acupuncture utilizes acupuncture points to relieve mental tension, alleviate depression, or support a person in post-traumatic stress. It can also help to calm a patient who suffers from anxiety. Five Element Acupuncture offers unique protocols that can help patients feel more centered and emotionally balanced.
What to expect from treatment:
When patients receive Five Element Acupuncture at Steelsmith Natural Health Center, the acupuncture needles are inserted into the acupuncture points and removed within seconds. This is in contrast to traditional acupuncture, which typically allows needles to remain in the body for 20 to 45 minutes or longer, depending on the goals of treatment.
