TESTIMONIAL - "I have been an avid fan of acupuncture since I discovered its benefits several years ago when I worked in Central Florida. However, since relocating to this area, I have had a couple of bad experiences with local natural health practitioners; and up to now have traveled 2 hours toward the outskirts of the Atlanta market to get effective acupuncture treatments. It appears I dont need to make that Georgia journey anymore-- James Berry/Acupuncturist and Rosemarie Berry/massage are a VERY IMPRESSIVE and knowledgeable team. They also have all sorts of wellness activities---for families, veterans and the community. ALL AT AFFORDABLE PRICES!! I look forward to 'getting my natural wellness on in 2016' at Five Shen Wellness & Acupuncture." ~ R.C.

TESTIMONIAL - "I just completed my very first acupuncture appointment ever. It was conducted by Five SHEN Wellness. James Berry and Rosemarie Berry were AWESOME.... Very professional and even though I was meeting them for the first time, I was made to feel as if I was part of the family.. James explained the procedure to me before, during, and after. He never once assumed that I already knew what was going on. I left feeling better than ever and continued to feel better after my great night's rest which I hadn't had in a very long time. I drove from Atlanta, Georgia to Greenville, South Carolina for my visit and it was worth every mile. I definitely recommend anyone who may have wondered about acupuncture to visit James and Rosemarie. It was a life changing experience for me.... AWESOME!!!!" ~ L.G.

TESTIMONIAL - "I stumbled upon Five Shen a couple of months ago on a soul mission to find some "natural" symptom relief to my various medical issues as I was at my wits end with traditional doctors and pharmaceuticals not working. I had no idea what to expect and was totally new to acupuncture but was willing to try it despite my fear of needles. I can't find the words to say how happy I am that I did! Within a few acupuncture treatments along with herbal medicines specially formulated for my conditions by James I am a completely renewed person. I feel better than I ever have. Migraines, gone. IBS, gone. That's just a few, not to mention spiritually I have come to a new level of self awareness and peace. The benefits of the services at Five Shen are endless and I am so thankful to have found them! If you are having any issues with your mind, body, or spirit Five Shen will get you back to enjoying your life again!" ~ A.L.

A Holistic Medicine

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be difficult to explain and each practitioner of this traditional medicine is likely to explain it differently. Without going into great detail, one important fundamental principle is that Chinese medicine is a holistic medicine. That is to say that it looks at the body as a "whole" and not as isolated symptoms. As practitioners of this medicine, we take the time to gather information by listening to your concerns and developing a complete picture of your current state of health. This enables us to sort through the branches or symptoms of your disharmony and actually recognize and treat the root or the cause of the imbalance.  Five Element Acupuncture is a unique system, especially effective at restoring the bodies natural balance, and Five Shen Wellness is the home to the only Five Element practitioners in the Upstate!

"There is little difference between healing the body and healing the spirit.  One might say that the aware person does both.  The concept of spirit is metaphysical while the concept of the body healing itself has been relegated to the physical realm.  And yet, both function at the unseen level."
