Acupuncture

Acupuncture is effective in general, but Classical Five Element Acupuncture is unique in that it doesn't only alleviate symptoms, it treats the Causative Factor or root of a person’s illness.

Classical Five Element Acupuncture is an ancient form of acupuncture. It relies on the laws of nature and takes into account the condition of the body, mind and spirit to bring about a diagnosis and treatment of a person’s illness. You can learn more about Five Element acupuncture by downloading our free ebook, How To Thrive In the Modern World.

The Five Elements include Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Each of the Elements has its own specific relations, and each has an important responsibility in our daily lives. Each Element is associated with a number of aspects of life such as seasons, colors, smells, foods, as well as different aspects of the body such as muscles, ligaments, and bones. The Elements are also connected to different emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, and grief. Every aspect of life can be associated with one of the elements.

When the energies of the Five Elements are in balance, we feel strong, nourished, and healthy. When the elements are out of sorts, we may feel unfit or unhealthy, developing various symptoms that affect not only our body, but our mind and spirit as well.

8 principle acupuncture is used for patients who need more immediate relief from pain or other symptoms. The vast majority of acupuncturists trained in the Western world use 8 principle acupuncture. Unfortunately, many of the acupuncture schools try to emulate the Western medical model by reducing acupuncture down to a mechanistic set of protocols that can be performed by any competent technician of the medicine. There are certainly amazing 8 principle acupuncturists out there, but many of them have lost the real spirit of Chinese medicine.

Acupuncture Wellness Center of Coral Springs is one of the very few clinics in existence that combines 5 element and 8 principle acupuncture to offer you a truly comprehensive treatment approach. Add to this combination the possibilities of nutritional counseling and guided stress reduction exercises, and you have a very potent and synergistic blend of therapies that can get you back on track in your life. This multi-layered approach is often what it takes to make real change in our modern world, as there are so many forces out there that prevent us from optimal health and wellness.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Therapy represents the highest form of medicine in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Chinese pharmacopoeia contains approximately 6000 substances. Average practitioners know about 300 individual herbs that can be combined into thousands of prescriptions. Most formulas consist of four to eighteen different types of herbs and treat a wide variety of symptoms while stimulating the body’s natural healing response. Only the finest quality herbs are used, and all ingredients are clearly displayed on the bottle for your safety and education. The safety and effectiveness of Chinese Herbal Medicine has been time tested for thousands of years through documented clinical experience. Best of all side effects or discomfort are rare.

Nutrition

We encourage all of our patients to choose an organic whole foods diet that has minimal amounts of sugars, white flour products, synthetic additives, or various ingredients that are difficult to pronounce. This is universally beneficial to all people. After that, we believe that nutritional guidelines need to be specific to you as an individual. There is no 'one size fits all' approach to the best way to eat because each of us has different constitutions. Some people should be eating a raw food diet based on their constitution (yin deficient--dry and over heated), while others need to eat mostly cooked foods (yang deficient--run cold and depleted).

We generally don't believe in diets because they flat out don't work. The goal is to find a balanced and authentic way to eat for the long-term. If it feels unnatural, forced, or excessively uncomfortable there is almost no chance of the diet becoming a viable long-term solution.   

In this day and age, our relationship with food has so much to do with how well we are managing stress, expressing our emotions, and maintaining awareness of our core beliefs. We easily turn to food for immediate gratification and comfort, which so often points to a deeper imbalance that is taking place in the mind. Our goal is to help you work on this level so you can make lasting changes, possibly for the first time ever.
