In Five-Element acupuncture it is thought that through birth or early childhood a constitutional weakness develops to the point where it impedes the flow of energy around the Sheng cycle.
This can be either through environmental or emotional causes but eventually it will affect the metal elements ability to pass on energy by the sheng cycle to the water element (the child).
As the flow of the sheng cycle strengthens, the patient moves back into balance with themselves, their relationships, their work and the world in which they live.
