Sy Cloud, L.Ac.

Sy Cloud, L.Ac.

Sy Cloud is a Five Element Acupuncturist who also uses Chinese herbology, Qi Gong exercises and Chinese dietary therapy to support patients of all ages. By taking the whole person into consideration, Sy treats the patient’s constitution to achieve relief from symptoms whether physical illness, injury or mental and emotional stress. Sy’s treatments are designed by carefully listening to the patient in an effort to determine where they’ve fallen off their tao, or where they’ve gone off balance. Acupuncture points are selected to support and strengthen a person’s constitution making the treatment very specific to the individual. In Five Element Acupuncture two people with identical western diagnoses will receive different treatments due to the uniqueness of each person and their personal relationship to their disease.

Sy graduated from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, Florida in 2011. An ancient form of medicine, Classical Five Element Acupuncture works by treating a person at the level of body, mind and spirit. It enables a person to move back into harmony with themselves, their emotions and their life as a whole.

In addition to his studies in Florida Sy has 15 years of study and practice in Chinese medicine including a five year apprenticeship with a family traditionally trained acupressurist herbalist.

Sy also is an avid outdoorsman, dedicated to experiencing what this beautiful land has to offer outside. He especially enjoys mountaineering, skiing, rafting and hunting.
