James is a firm believer and practitioner in ancient tradition of Five Elements Acupuncture. Five Element Acupuncture is a time-honoured 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. “My role is to listen as deeply as i can to what the spirit is asking for.” - James
