The Essential Skills of Classical Five Element Acupuncture

Reconnect with intuition and empathy by exploring the principles of Classical Five Element Acupuncture. In this two-day workshop led by three master practitioners and a scholar of Chinese medical philosophy, we will inquire into these questions and others:

  • What is health? What is healing?
  • How do they differ in Classical Chinese and Western Medicine?
  • History of healing: what has survived and what has been lost?
  • The element wood and correspondences

The Lingshu Institute is an educational organization dedicated to the academic study and clinical practice of Classical Five Element Acupuncture.

Our mission is to teach and preserve this ancient system of Chinese medicine and become a catalyst for healing: a force that advances and transforms how the world thinks about well-being made possible by restoring humanity’s natural balance of body, mind, and spirit.
