Wood Element in Five Element Acupuncture

The Officials of the Wood Element

In 5 Element theory, the organs of the Wood element are the liver and gallbladder. These two officials can be likened to the Architect and the Site Foreman on a building site, one makes the plans and the other makes the decisions on how to put these plans into progress.

The liver carries on planning for our futures and without this service you’d flounder and loose direction. When your Wood element is in balance, the liver gives you the power to be flexible, so when things don’t quite go as expected, the liver will give you the adaptability to change your plans.

The gallbladder is the official of decision making and judgment; if it’s weak you may find you lack the courage or initiative to make choices. Balanced, you’ll be able to take action and will have more drive to realise your goals.
