The Five Elements

In traditional Chinese Medicine, the Five Element Theory describes the relationship between energy and substances. The five elements are believed to be the cornerstones of everything in the universe, of which interactions occur. These elements correlate to the five phases of creation: birth, growth, maturation, harvest, and storage.

Harmony among the elements within ourselves is the foundation for optimal health, well-being and consciousness.
