Explore Nora Franglen's insights derived from decades of practice as a five element acupuncturist in this new collection. Covering tips on patient care and the patient-practitioner relationship to advice on a deeper understanding of the elements, of the healing practice, and of humanity's links to nature, the book also touches on the spiritual aspects of the work and the need for self-awareness in the practitioner.

For acupuncturists and Chinese medicine practitioners, or anyone interested in the healing arts, this book is full of useful guidance.


'Weaving together intellect, heart and soul, this is not only the story of mastery but offers a path to achieving it. There is much here to inspire, whatever the endeavour.'
- Dr. Mark J. Langweiler, DC, DAAPM, University of South Wales

'Nora Franglen writes with wisdom and heart and touches on the most profound aspects of life. This book is an inspiring and insightful account by an acupuncturist, teacher, and most of all, an ever-searching human being.'
- Stefanie Sachsenmaier, Senior Lecturer in Theatre Arts, Middlesex University, and Tai Chi Practitioner

'The spirit of five element acupuncture chose well when it met Nora Franglen. Nora writes about her life in acupuncture through the window of the elements with genuineness, joy, passion, humility, and a wry sense of humour. This, her seventh book, is not just a masterclass for acupuncturists but also for psychotherapists and indeed any student of human nature.'
- Jean Ransome, Person-Centred Psychotherapist

'The art of Chinese medicine, and much of classical Chinese thinking, lies in the subtle observation of things. Nora's many years of acupuncture practice, plus a variety of other life skills, have contributed to making her an expert in the art of observation. This delightful book provides both great pleasure and wise instruction; written more specifically with five element acupuncturists in mind, it can nevertheless be enjoyed equally by practitioners of any kind, and by anyone interested in the observation of life.'
- Sandra Hill, Acupuncturist, Co-Founder of Monkey Press, and Author of Chinese Medicine from the Classics
