Integrating Five Elements and TCM - Deepening your Acupuncture Treatments Chinese Medicine teaches that there are three main areas causing disease. These are ‘internal’ (emotional), ‘external’ (climatic) and ‘miscellaneous’ (primarily to do with lifestyle).
Five Element acupuncture mainly deals with diagnosing and treating the internal causes, whilst TCM focuses mainly on the external and miscellaneous causes. By integrating these two styles the three main areas are addressed, leading to a broader range of conditions that can be treated at the same time as allowing treatment to reach a deeper more profound level. This ensures that the patient’s body, mind and spirit are all supported. During this seminar Angela and John Hicks will be discussing:
• The similarities between Five Elements and TCM and where they overlap
• The differences between Five Elements and TCM and how each different aspect enhances treatment
• An overview of how the two styles can be integrated 
This session aims to give us insight into how we can broaden and deepen what we do in our own practices
