Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water are interrelated aspects of energy that are evident throughout nature, including in the human body.
An individual's state of health manifests according to the balance between these Elements.
Understanding the relationships between Elements and how they in turn influence the body, mind, and spirit are the primary tools a practitioner uses to effect healing on the deepest level.
Throughout the course, students will develop the ability to discern the Elements within each patient by learning subtle and highly-refined diagnostic skills, including pulse taking, the ability to assess color, sound, emotion and odor, and the development of the four fundamental skills of seeing, hearing, asking and touching which are necessary to determine the primary cause of each person's imbalance.
As these skills develop, the practitioner hones perception and enhances sensitivity, fostering a deeper understanding of what each individual requires in order to achieve an ultimate transformation to health.
