The 5 Elements

~

A Quick Intro

Take the quiz and learn your true element!

The idea that all of nature is governed by yin/yang and the Five elements lies at the heart of Chinese medicine laid down over 2000 years ago. Its theory says that the energy of the world can be divided into five movements or processes which are sometimes called phases or Elements.
We’ll use the term element to refer to these five fundamental qualities of all matter in the universe
Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire.
Each Element is defined as having a set of associations, such as a Yin and Yang Organ, a colour, sound, and season, among other characteristic and the elements as a whole are a well-rounded look at everything from our physical health, thru to our natural tendencies and why we make the decisions we do individually and in relationship.
