Academy for Five Elements Acupuncture

The instructors at Five Elements Acupuncture are among the most experienced five element practitioners in the country, and most have many years experience teaching. Skilled instructors come to Florida from all over the U.S. to teach at for three-to four-day intensives, allowing each class of students is exposure to a range of experts in their fields in classroom and clinical settings.

All faculty at Five Elements Acupuncture are devoted to provide hands-on, personal training to help students regain the skills often lost in the fast-paced, technology-driven world, such as the fundamental diagnostic skills of seeing, hearing, asking and touching. The Academy for Five Elements Acupuncture also strives to be involved in the community by offering professional and affordable treatment in its clinic.

The unique structure of the program, which starts with intensive two-to three-week studies, makes the Academy easily accessible to students all over the country, given that they don't need to reside in Florida for the first two years of the program.
