ABOUT five element

Five Element acupuncture refers to the five phases or seasons: Wood (Spring), Fire (Summer), Earth (Late Summer/Harvest), Metal (Autumn), Water (Winter). These are found both in nature and within the body.

In yoga, five elements are found within the chakra system: Muladhara/Root (Earth), Svadisthana/Sacral (Water), Manipura/Navel (Fire), Anahata/Heart (Air) and Vishuddhi/Throat (Ether). The highest two chakras (Ajna/ Third Eye and Sahasrara/Crown) are of a more spiritual nature and considered to be beyond the elements.



Chrissie has been a health practitioner for over 25 years. She spent 30 years in the UK where she trained as an acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist and yoga teacher.

She has travelled the world and has a particular interest in ancient history and Eastern philosophies. Combining yoga and her love of travel, she has held retreats in exotic locations such as Goa and the Judean desert.  As well as her regular group classes in Auckland, Chrissie offers workshops and private retreats to groups of friends and corporate companies.
