As a trusted name in alternative and natural medicine, McKinnon Marie's Cypress Pavilion is dedicated to providing comprehensive care in Tucson. With a focus on the five phases of acupuncture, we aim to empower individuals to improve their overall well-being through this ancient practice.

Understanding the Five Phases

Acupuncture is rooted in the understanding of the five phases, also known as Wu Xing in traditional Chinese medicine. These are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water, representing the dynamic relationship between different aspects of life. At Cypress Pavilion, we believe in harnessing the power of these phases to restore balance and promote healing.

Wood Phase

The Wood phase represents growth, flexibility, and adaptation. It is associated with the liver and gallbladder meridians. When there is an imbalance in the Wood phase, we may experience symptoms such as anger, irritability, or muscle tension. Acupuncture treatments focused on the Wood phase aim to restore harmony and encourage personal development.

Fire Phase

The Fire phase symbolizes vitality, joy, and connection. It is linked to the heart and small intestine meridians. An imbalance in the Fire phase can manifest as anxiety, insomnia, or heart-related issues. With targeted acupuncture treatments, we strive to reignite the flame within, promoting emotional well-being and fostering strong relationships.

Earth Phase

The Earth phase embodies nurturing, stability, and grounding. It is connected to the spleen and stomach meridians. When the Earth phase is imbalanced, we may experience digestive problems, worry, or lack of focus. Acupuncture treatments aimed at the Earth phase seek to restore harmony in our bodies and create a solid foundation for overall health.

Metal Phase

The Metal phase represents clarity, inspiration, and organization. It is associated with the lung and large intestine meridians. Imbalances in the Metal phase can manifest as grief, respiratory issues, or difficulty letting go. Through targeted acupuncture treatments, we aim to promote mental clarity and support the body's ability to release what no longer serves us.

Water Phase

The Water phase symbolizes wisdom, calmness, and adaptability. It is linked to the kidney and bladder meridians. When there is an imbalance in the Water phase, we may experience fear, urinary issues, or hormonal imbalances. Acupuncture treatments focused on the Water phase seek to restore balance, promote emotional stability, and enhance our ability to navigate life's challenges.
