The Lingshu Institute is an educational organization dedicated to the academic study and clinical training of Classical Five Element Acupuncture (CFEA).

Unlike modern acupuncture commonly practiced today (TCM), CFEA represents one of the last remaining forms of pre-modern acupuncture. We train students in this ancient system of medicine to both provide a time-tested holistic approach to medicine and to preserve the historical root of modern acupuncture.

Acupuncture licensing is skewed toward a symptoms-based approach developed during the modernization of China – the majority of acupuncture programs teach Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) not CFEA. Existing CFEA training programs do not meet the demand for producing enough qualified senior-level practitioners because there has been limited opportunity for working professional CFEA master practitioners to learn in organized and systematic learning programs with a strong parallel focus on apprenticeship for students.
