Find Natural Relief with Five Element Acupuncture Sydney

Are you struggling with chronic pain, anxiety, or other health concerns that Western medicine hasn’t been able to resolve? Want a natural way to relieve pain and anxiety? Five Element Acupuncture Sydney may be just what you need.

Five Element Acupuncture is a time-tested holistic approach to healing that addresses the root cause of health issues, promoting overall well-being. It works by restoring balance within the body’s energetic system, enhancing your body’s natural healing abilities. 

Five Element Acupuncture is a specific ancient branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine that views the body as a microcosm of the universe, with the five elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water) corresponding to different organ systems, emotions, and functions.

This acupuncture system identifies imbalances within these elements and uses unique acupuncture points to restore harmony. By addressing these imbalances, Five Element Acupuncture can promote healing and address various health concerns.

Meet Caryn

I have been practising Five Element Acupuncture for over 28 years and still find its capability fascinating to this day..

My passion is all things health and well-being related. I love helping people optimise, so they are more productive at work, feel better in their own skin, and relationships improve.

I have a breadth and depth of experience and knowledge on a wide variety of subjects which I use to help the treatment process.

I qualified as an acupuncturist at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa in 1996 and returned to Sydney in 2005, after eight years of practice in London.

The Phases of Treatment

I need help

Treatment will initially involve some weekly treatments to help the body kick into self-healing mode.


Once you’re experiencing enough improvement, we space the treatment out from fortnightly to monthly.


Depending on your stressors, treatment can be reduced anywhere from monthly to a couple of times a year to ‘top up’.
