Plant Spirit Medicine

Plant Spirit Medicine is a type of healing that blends Classical Five Element acupuncture theory with ancient shamanic, medicinal uses of plants. Developed by Eliot Cowan, an acupuncturist who proceeded to undertake many years of shamanic training with an indigenous Huichol Indian healer in Mexico, Plant Spirit Medicine “moves” a person’s energy, just as acupuncture does, but without the use of needles.

Patients who receive Plant Spirit Medicine treatments often report, in addition to greater physical/mental/emotional wellbeing, the feeling of greater connectedness with the natural world.

Eliot Cowan has written a wonderful book, "Plant Spirit Medicine," which can be ordered through local bookstores or from
