Framed within the Five Element model, this book takes a refreshing look at the healing principles of Chinese medicine and gives key acupoints for each week of the year. The author journeys through the seasons of the Five Elements and looks at the physical, emotional and spiritual associations of key acupoints. Exploring each acupoints' name, function, and healing use, it offers practical benefits to the reader - ranging from helping with a sense of smell, to aiding a good sense of humour. With descriptions and images that capture the spirit of each season,and photographs of the point locations, this book is perfect for anyone interested in a different view of the body and its healing relation across the year, as well as students and practitioners of Chinese medicine looking for deep and memorable insight into their work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Through poetry, lush visual imagery, fascinating case histories and crystal clear explanations and point locations, John Kirkwood brings the body, soul and spirit of Five Element Acupuncture to life. A labor of love and devotion, this is a book clinicians, students and patients of traditional Chinese medicine have long been waiting for. I will use it in all my teaching and will cherish my copy for years to come. -- Lorie Eve Dechar, author of `Five Spirits: Alchemical Acupuncture for Psychological and Spiritual Healing'
John Kirkwood's The Way of the Five Elements is an original and immensely practical addition to the growing literature of five element medicine. In addition to his lively descriptions of each element, John Kirkwood offers something new: explorations of individual acupoints that highlight their elemental qualities. In choosing a small handful of powerful points for each element, Kirkwood offers readers a highly accessible way into the very complex system of acupuncture points. Novice readers and journeyman practitioners alike will find insights and ideas for acupressure treatment of themselves and their clients. -- Gail Reichstein Rex, acupuncturist and author of Wood Becomes Water: Chinese Medicine in Everyday Life and Earth Acupuncture: Healing the Living Landscape
The benefit of supporting the Element and living in each season goes far beyond the role of Shiatsu and Acupuncture, and so I recommend this book to students and practitioners of all healing therapies which incorporate seasonal energetic work. -- Julie Weeks, MRSS(T) * Shiatsu Society Journal *
