Welcome to the Five Element Acupuncture Community Website.

The late J.R. Worsley brought Five Element Acupuncture to the western world in the 1950s. Its fundamental principles are to treat each person as a unique individual, and to address the cause of their disease rather than palliate its symptoms.

An extraordinary practitioner and teacher, he advanced the art with his clear understanding of the principles, his ability to gain rapport with patients and so determine their needs, and his ability to adapt, refine, present and teach this healing art to us in our modern western culture.

JR treated thousands of patients, taught hundreds of practitioners and dozens of teachers. Some have gone on to found excellent schools of their own.

This website exists as a service to the public, and to Five Element Acupuncture students, practitioners, teachers, and schools that are studying, practicing, and teaching Five Element Acupuncture as learned from J.R. Worsley.
