Five Element acupuncture is a holistic approach to healing because it treats the root cause of disease, as opposed to symptoms.


The patient is viewed as a whole and unique being. Practitioners are trained to hone their senses to discern hues, odors, sound quality of the voice, and prominent emotions expressed by the patient. Also, they will take into account the season, time of day, dreams, and past traumas when forming a treatment plan. We each have all five elements within us. However, one element within is inherently compromised and this is known as the causative factor (CF). The CF reflects our greatest weaknesses and greatest strengths. It's important to note that no two persons are alike, even if they have the same CF diagnosis. Treatment plans are tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

I was struggling with infertility for over 4 years. My infertility doctor suggested consulting an acupuncturist while I underwent the Intrauterine inseminations. I took her advice and went to the acupuncturist that my doctor recommended. I underwent 3 IUI's over the course of a year and saw the acupuncturist every week. Unfortunately, the IUI's were unsuccessful. I met Andrea Beckwith through a mutual acquaintance around the same time I had started the injections to undergo In vitro fertilization. I decided it wouldn't hurt to try someone new. I liked her kind demeanor and patient personality She was tremendously professional and walked me through each needle; informing me of its purpose. I had been going to an acupuncturist for over a year, and I had never felt the sensations that I felt with Ms. Beckwith. I know it sounds silly, but I could actually feel it "working." One month later I found out I was pregnant. I don't know if her treatment was more effective because of her technique or if her calming nature helped lessen my stress, but I would recommend her services to any woman going through the emotional roller coaster of infertility. You will find tranquility with Andrea even in the most difficult of times…guaranteed." 

Five Element Acupuncture is a unique treatment that has the given me the opportunity to reach great levels of healing by opening up my consciousness, connecting my mind, body and spirit, and allowing me to progress through my journey of recovery and self discovery. It has helped me to open my awareness and become more in tune to my internal being, while helping me move toward a healthier enriched soulful existence.  Andrea’s gentle and intuitive approach is thorough and effective. Her understanding and ability to see the big picture of my needs allow her to develop a healing treatment that entails tools for my soul so I can feel more connected, energized, and balanced in the complexities of living in the day-to-day world. Her treatments are handled with care and compassion, and in turn she has gained my trust and respect.
