Five Element Acupuncture

Alyiah Doughty DOM, LMT#494 ~ Five-Element Acupuncture ~ When the elements within us are in relative harmony, we can relax and live from our true nature. The creative life force can then move more freely through your body and your life. Each person is born into this world with a particular elemental nature that predominates. Each element relates to an acupuncture meridian and organ system. My goal in the diagnostic session is to discern which element and meridian you are most connected to, on a root constitutional level. This shows where your core challenges tend to arise from, as well as what some of your unique gifts are as well. This style of acupuncture addresses and treats root constitutional imbalances, which balances your body, mind and emotions, helps transform disease patterns, as well as nurtures your unique gifts within.

Also addresses: weak immune system, fatigue, digestion, hormonal imbalances, aches & pains, trauma, stress, fear, anger, grief… and more!

Alyiah’s passion is to help you deeply relax, ease pain, and attune to inner peace, strength, health, and resilience. She utilizes healing arts to nurture your heart, enhance flow in your energy channels and free your mind to rest. This supports you to embrace life, embody your true nature of unconditioned love and joy, and open to your unique gifts, passions and purpose!

Her goal with acupuncture is to uncover and treat the root cause of a condition, rather than just treating symptoms. If you are weeding a garden, you go for the roots. Otherwise, the weeds will return and sometimes stronger than before. Alyiah has seen that even where someone injures themselves in their body, is often related to an underlying, unresolved root challenge or trauma, that they may not be aware exists.

You are supported to be compassionately present with whatever is arising in your life and to access the healing intelligence and clear heart space within. We are all vessels of spirit, born in human form with a particular elemental nature that carries with it certain life challenges, purpose and unique gifts. Most people identify with the challenges and have not realized the amazing gifts that are within! When we live from compassion, clear heart and insight, and share our gifts, we benefit and the world does too!


First session is 2 hours and the cost is $158.00
Follow up sessions are 1 hour and the cost is $79.00
