About Academy for Five Element Acupuncture
In keeping with the classical teachings of the Su Wen and the Nan Jing, Academy for Five Element Acupuncture has been instructing students for over twenty years in the healing arts of the Five Element tradition. Rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Five Elements and traditional Taoism, our curriculum teaches students to see people not only as they present themselves in illness, but more importantly as they would be when in health and balance.
We are a not-for-profit graduate institution and one of only four accredited acupuncture and Oriental medicine institutions in the country offering a curriculum with a dedicated focus on the Five Element tradition. In addition to our Master of Acupuncture degree program, we also offer a Certificate in Chinese Herbal Studies. Taken together, these two programs enable students to integrate the physical symptoms of illness without separating emotional and spiritual ailments. This approach provides a truly holistic system of medicine.
