- SA AM FIVE ELEMENT ACUPUNCTURE -
Each type of acupuncture has unique characteristics. Dr. Chung selects the most appropriate type according to each patient's need. However, she uses Sa Am Five Element acupuncture more frequently than all others. Sa am Five Element acupuncture was developed by an enlightened Buddhist monk doctor named Master Sa Am during the 16th century in Korea. This is an extremely profound and powerful acupuncture and its effectiveness transcends the limits of conventional types of acupuncture in most cases; its essential contents have not been introduced to the West yet. Dr. Chung became convinced of its powerful effectiveness after performing extensive comparative research with other various methods of acupuncture. The reason why Five Element Acupuncture is so powerful is because it is the very one that applies the fundamental principle of Oriental medicine, namely, aiming at the root, the internal organs. As human beings, we are perceived as a total integral organisms. In the body, the internal organs such as heart, kidney, and etc. are considered to be the center or source, much like a generator, where energy is produced. The produced energy flows through the meridians, pathways, and to all parts of the body. It functions like an integral network. For example, the internal organs can be compared to the root of a tree, while the rest of the body parts are interrelated like branches, leaves, and flowers in this network. If the flowers and leaves wither, it is fundamental to treat not the flowers and the leaves, but the root. The Five elemental acupuncture focuses on the the root--the internal organs--which is distinguished from common acupuncture that focuses on the symptoms.
*explained in concept -
In common acupuncture, the points where symptoms appear are stressed the most while the points in relation to the source, the internal organ, may sometimes be used. Even then, it lacks the systematic principle of application. However, in Five element acupuncture, only the source of all problems--internal organs--are treated based on the systematic principles of Yin & Yang and Five elements. Yin & Yang is the energy of polarity and Five elements is the five phases of cosmic energy movement. These are considered the basic principles of Oriental medicine. Since this Five element acupuncture shoots directly at the target, that is, the root, the symptoms, or branches will disappear fundamentally and effectively.
