When you know a child's unique five element make-up you unlock a treasure trove of information that guides your entire patient encouter. It will inform how you interact with your patient and help you formulate the right treatment plan.
You'll be able to better guide the parents so they understand their child's temperament, strengths, challenges, motivations and even what illnesses he or she is prone to.
What's even more amazing is being able to identify a child's Element and describe the child to the parent on the first visit. Parents are always in awe when you've got their child spot on! It helps you quickly build trust and rapport.
If you've ever felt perplexed by a child's seemingly dual nature, you're not alone. Usually you can narrow down a child's Element to two: the Dominant Element and Influential Element.
Combined, the Dominant and Influential Elements are uniquely expressed in each child. The unique Elemental expression makes it hard to determine which Element is dominant, but with the right guiding questions you can easily determine which is which.
