A Focus on Constitutional Health

Kea is a practitioner in the ancient tradition of Five Element Acupuncture. 

Five Element Acupuncture is a time-honored medicine that uses the principles of nature to bring the body, mind, and spirit into balance.  Each person has a unique constitution of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, or Wood.  By restoring balance to the elements within, we create harmony and health. Five Element Acupuncture restores balance by treating the root causes of disease, not just the symptoms.  

Each treatment corrects imbalances in the energy flow at three essential levels: body, mind* and spirit.**  This frees up energy so that the body can begin to heal itself. When the body, mind and spirit are all tended to, the body can heal at a far deeper level, which brings about not only relief of physical symptoms, but also clarity of mind and a sense of well being.  

*Mind level: This has to do with how we are thinking. When the mind is balanced our thinking is clear, quick and focused on the moment; our past helps us make better decisions and our plans for the future are flexible, ready to change if the current situation changes.

**Spirit level: The ability to feel that, despite the current situation, everything is okay. 



“My role is to listen as deeply as I can to what the Spirit is asking for.”  -- Kea

Most acupuncture practiced today focuses mainly on the energetics of the physical body. The popularity of this form of acupuncture is not surprising since Western culture and medicine has focused extensively on the physical body and we have grown accustomed to understanding disease through our bodies. However, Five Element Acupuncture goes further and looks at the state of balance in the mind and spirit.

Kea holds a beautiful container for healing.   I can tell her anything.  She simultaneously sees me in my greatness and points out where I am stuck and need to grow.
