The Five Elements

The five elements or five phases are really a way to refine yin and yang even more when it comes to understanding disease and how to treat it:
Example: lets say that the TCM diagnostic wrist pulse has been read and the details of your imbalance have been fully explored through asking, looking, smelling and feeling the practitioner has come to diagnose the yin/yang dysfunction, heat in the large intestine (could be irritable bowl syndrome, which in a western sense has no cure except to administer drugs or cut out a section of the bowel). TCM could in this case say you have fire in the large intestine, and one possible treatment would be to calm the fire by using acupuncture points on the earth and water element to support metal or use the water (to cool and draw excessive fire away from the metal element) element (the TCM therapist would have many treatment options), or perhaps some qigong to calm the fire energy or maybe even both, if the fire is out of control then points of the fire element (creation-sheng, destructive cycle-ke) may be used.

Creation Phases

creation phase of the 5 elements
The Sheng Cycle
The creation cycle is also known as the support cycle, sheng cycle or mother and son cycle, and it's concept is, that each element supports and nourishes the following element, and is used as a common practice throughout TCM therapeutic treatment regimes.
Mother and Son:
Water (in this instance is the mother) creates wood, therefore wood is the son of water.
Example: The earth is the mother to metal, and metal energy has become weak therefore tonification of the earth (mother) element could be used to support and re-energize metal Qi.

Control-Destructive Phases

destruction phase of the 5 elements

The Ke Cycle
The destructive cycle is also known as the mutual control cycle, ke cycle and it's concept is, that each element controls not the following element but the one after that, and is used as a common practice to encourage holistic balance throughout TCM therapeutic treatment regimes including qigong and taiji (qigong walking).
Example: The earth (element) is out of control and because earth is so weak, is causing the metal element (lungs) to become excessive, to gain back some control wood qi energy is used to encourage control of the earth element by calming the rebellious earth chi to re-energizing metal qi, by encouraging balanced qi to flow from earth to metal.
Note: although the control cycle has a role to foster balance and harmony within the five elements, but should a controlled element become energetically overbearing and the controlling element weaken an un-natural reverse energy flow of control can take place which will damage the healthy order in which the qi of the element usually prospers.
Qigong/taiji training and the sheng/ke cycles practitioner evolution

Learning and understanding qigong should be practiced and developed by all therapists who use chi energy as a healing medium, without practical qi knowledge, therapeutic application becomes a weakened, half therapy
