Elements of the Earth is an acupuncture, botanical medicine and seasonal wellness clinic on Dharug Country in the lower Blue Mountains - land that is full of eucalypts, tea-trees, boronia, bush mint, flannel flowers, ferns and tiny rare orchids. The area is known historically for its healing waters, its wildfires, its red clay and volcanic rock, and for the fireflies that hover and glow in the gullies a few weeks of the year.
The clinic takes its elemental name from the 5 elements or transformative forces at the heart of Chinese medicine - fire, earth, metal, water, wood. These 5 Elements are symbolic of the different energies that occur within the earth, and in our bodies, as we move through the seasons or cycles of life. Like Yin and Yang, the concept of the 5 Elements is key to understanding the heart of Chinese medicine and the reverence the system has for the cycles of the natural world. This reverence is one that practitioner and clinic owner, Tina Camilleri, carries into all her work: a reverence for the land she works on, and for the medicine she works with.
Elements of the Earth is located in the historic Greens Arcade, Blaxland. The clinic is open Wed-Sat, by appointment only, for all your acupuncture, herbal medicine and seasonal wellness needs.
