Five Element Aromatherapy

Improve your health and well-being naturally with the power of aromatherapy. Your acupuncturist will use essential oils and acupuncture to bring the emotional and physical energies of the Chinese medicine five elements toward a more balanced state.

Five Element Aromatherapy combines the wisdom of traditional Chinese Five Element theory with the healing properties of essential oils to create a deeply restorative experience that balances the body, mind, and spirit.

The Five Element theory is an ancient Chinese philosophy that describes the interactions and relationships between five fundamental elements of nature: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. These elements are believed to be the fundamental building blocks of everything in the universe, including the human body. Each element corresponds to different organs, emotions, and aspects of the soul, influencing our physical and mental wellbeing.


How Does Five Element Aromatherapy Work?

Five Element Aromatherapy involves selecting essential oils that correspond to the five elements and their associated energetic qualities. By using these oils in combination with acupuncture or as a standalone treatment, we can target specific imbalances within the body, enhance emotional well-being, and promote overall health. Here’s how each element is addressed through aromatherapy:

  • Wood: Associated with growth and vitality, Wood element oils like rosemary and bergamot are used to relieve stress, improve circulation, and bolster the health of the liver and gallbladder. Used to balance feelings of anger, frustration, aggressiveness, indecision or ambivalence.
  • Fire: Linked to joy and warmth, Fire element oils such as basil and frankincense can uplift the spirit, enhance mood, and support heart and small intestine health. Used to balance feelings of lack of joy, bitterness, overwhelmed, scattered, restlessness or nervousness.
  • Earth: Representing nourishment and stability, Earth oils like patchouli and ginger help in digestion, grounding, and emotional balance. Used to balance feelings of obsession, worry, overprotective, sugar cravings, emotion eating or clinginess
  • Metal: Corresponding to clarity and purity, Metal element oils like eucalyptus and cedarwood are excellent for respiratory health, skin clarity, and fostering a sense of personal strength. Used to balance feelings of perfectionism, distant/disconnected, preference to be alone, grief or sadness
  • Water: Symbolizing wisdom and introspection, Water element oils such as chamomile and sandalwood are ideal for kidney and bladder health, promoting relaxation and deep contemplative calm. Used to balance feelings of over-caution, fearful, anxious, reckless, secretive or withdrawn

Benefits of Five Element Aromatherapy

  • Enhanced Emotional Balance: By aligning the elements within the body, Five Element Aromatherapy can help stabilize emotions and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
  • Physical Healing: Essential oils have various physical health benefits, including pain relief, improved digestion, and stronger immune function.
  • Spiritual Harmony: This therapy promotes a deep sense of connection with oneself, enhancing mindfulness and spiritual awareness.

I have been working with Jamie 2x per week for the past couple of weeks. He is extremely attentive, understanding and thorough. I was nervous to start with acupuncture because of my herniated disc and fear of needles but he has made the experience feel very safe and comfortable. I’ve noticed a decrease in pain after suffering for over a year. Highly recommend!

I recently had an incredible experience at this place, and I don't even know where to begin. I found myself in unbearable back pain, unable to stand up straight, and unsure of what caused it. Fortunately, I was able to schedule a prompt appointment, and Jamie's expertise was truly amazing! After receiving both cupping and acupuncture treatments, I noticed a remarkable improvement right away and within just two days, i was 95% back to my normal self. Don't hesitate to book an appointment here—it made a significant difference for me.

This is the best place ever! I get cupping and acupuncture when my back starts acting up and leave feeling like 50 pounds was lifted off my back. Crystal and Jamie are very thorough in their questions to understand what’s going on and the treatment they provide. And the prices can’t be beat. 10/10

I have been going to Lakewood Community Acupuncture for over a year and can’t imagine my life without it now!! It can truly help with so much - from physical pain (I have issues with my pelvic floor and multiple herniated discs) to emotional blocks, energy deficiencies and more! I ALWAYS feel better after acupuncture. I’ve seen all the practitioners and they are all extremely skilled, but Crystal is my go-to. She is not only very gentle and effective but always a delight to connect with. For the quality of service, atmosphere and price, you cannot do better. It’s been a game changer for me. Wholeheartedly recommend!!
