Alex promotes modern health care approaches where the practitioner and client work together to achieve health and wellness. Alex provides ongoing professional assistance using treatments, information and positive interventions giving each of his clients ample time and space, guiding them to choose the best way forward.
Well, what I do is:
- First take time to understand your health and wellness needs
- We assess and give advice according to the 3000-year experience of Chinese medicine
- Then, we create a health plan together and we facilitate implementation over a suitable time period
Alex believes the true power of Chinese medicine lies in the prevention… it’s theory and methodology. Then, combining that with Chinese Medicine lifestyle practices as well as acupuncture, herbal medicine, body work and counseling for maximum potential. The key focus of his approach is not only to assist the healing process through treatment, but also in learning how we can live in accordance with nature to promote life and health.
The theory and methodology of Chinese medicine is such that specialization is not necessary to achieve good results. Acupuncturists with a solid grounding in the medical philosophy and its application can treat all kinds of disorders. Whether you’re coming in with back pain, headaches, or IBS, Acupuncturists are still diagnosing based on patterns and the balancing principles of the medicine.
That said, practitioners do have various levels of experience with and knowledge of certain conditions which can facilitate better outcomes. It is generally a good idea to seek out a practitioner who has achieved good results in your area of concern and is more familiar with your situation.

- Men’s Health
