​What is Five-Element Acupuncture?

Five-Element Acupuncture is a complete system of medicine based on the natural laws that govern all beings and matter in the universe. It is a spiritual tradition that addresses the needs of people at the level of the body, mind and spirit.


Five-Element Acupuncture sees ill-health and dis-ease as an imbalance of yin and yang, the two primary sources of all existence. Any symptom/s a person may experience demonstrates the person has lost balance but the problem does not indicate the cause. The goal of the acupuncturist is to find the true cause of the imbalance in the patient.

Five-Element acupuncturists use their senses to make a diagnosis (to see, to hear, to smell, to feel).


In treatment they use Moxa (a fine Chinese herb) that is burnt to warm the acupuncture points, and needles to stimulate or sedate the energy accessible in the meridian (energy) pathways. This adjustment can harmonise the flow of energy in the patient.

The Team that Drives Our Vision

The Five Elements

According to ancient Chinese philosophy, the entire universe can be observed and experienced through the five elements as found in nature; Wood, Water, Fire, Earth, and Metal.

In humankind, we can observe these elements manifesting in many different ways: for example – five pairings of organs, five distinct emotions, sounds, smells and colours. Each organ of the body corresponds to one of the elements, which in turn corresponds to one of the seasons of the year. The elements are the five distinct phases through which all things pass from their beginning to their end.


Wood represents our capacity to be born and grow and is associated with the season of spring; it rises up with vision and determination
 to realise the plan of growth and renewal. Wood gives us the structure
 and flexibility to create our lives with hope and optimism, overcoming 
obstacles and creating our path.


Fire gives us the capacity to warm and open and is associated with the season of summer. It gives us warmth, the
 capacity to love and to be loved. It enables us to mature and blossom 
and its function is to help us relate. Here we find our passion, our ability 
to feel joy in all our endeavours. Feeling emotionally protected by love we communicate 
with openness and honesty.


Earth gives us the capacity to receive and be satisfied and is associated with the season of late summer and a time of harvesting. This element 
gives us the ability to nurture ourselves and others. By feeling centred and grounded it enables us to understand ourselves and sympathise with others without losing our sense of self.


Metal gives us the capacity to see the quality and value of life and is associated with the season of autumn. It gives us our sense of self
 worth and a capacity to look at what lies beyond ourselves and the
 power to let go.


Water gives the capacity to find our inner power and deepest sense of self. It is associated with the season of winter, pausing in time to regenerate
 and gather strength. Water gives us the power to adapt and the will and drive to fulfil
 the potential given to us at birth.

What our clients say

Jessica Agombar

I tried so many acupuncturists and nothing worked for me before finding Five-Element acupuncture with Gerad. It's now a huge part of my routine/self-care. If I'm anxious, jet-lagged, or anything in between, Gerad's practice balances me. I highly recommend Gerad.

James B

Johnny has been my acupuncturist for seven years. He has helped me through periods of stress, break ups, digestive issues, addiction and most recently a huge career change. Whenever I tell him what's up, he always seems to know the best way to put me back on track.


I've been seeing Mia for over 10 years and it's hard to do justice to how much her treatments have helped me. She's seen me through amenorrhea, stress, failed relationships, miscarriages, IVF and finally two pregnancies Every time I see her, I leave full of energy and positivity. 

Acupuncture and IVF

By combining our treatment with IVF, success rates improve, not only in creating the most ideal conditions for conception but also in giving the highest possible chance of a problem-free pregnancy. Our goal is always to help people conceive without IVF but, where it is necessary, the combination of IVF and acupuncture appears to have a very positive outcome.


We recommend you start having acupuncture treatments around three months before starting IVF, but where this is not possible treatment can still have a significant effect at any time.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a ground-breaking treatment that assists nature in bringing together the egg and the sperm to facilitate conception and pregnancy.
Five-Element Acupuncture is a system of medicine that also works with nature. This style of acupuncture does not treat symptoms directly and there are no formulas or set protocols we use when you are going through IVF, instead each treatment is focused on helping you be as well as possible in the widest sense.  By facilitating balance and harmony in you, your body has a much better chance to find its natural balance so that the internal environment is optimum to create new life.​
