Combatting Stress & Anxiety

Chronic stress and anxiety gets in the way of our fully experiencing and enjoying our lives and can impede our ability to work effectively. By un-blocking pent-up energy flows due to stress and anxiety, Five Element Acupuncture can remove us from the viscious cycle of stress (and sleeplessness), giving us a calmer, more positive attitude to the challenges in our lives.

Facial Regeneration

Acupuncture is an amazingly effective way to reverse the signs of aging in our faces - by jump-starting the body's own natural regenerative processes. Needles are used to (painlessly) tighten muscles, boost blood and oxygen flow, accelerate 'plumping' via collagen growth and prompt lymphatic drainage - rendering your skin tighter and with a more youthful glow. And unlike Botox, acupuncture is natural and long-lasting.

Mainstream medicine offers a vast array of possible treatments, but most deal only with symptoms, while failing to directly deal with the core problem. Symptoms return and more treatment is required. Whether you're suffering from stress or anxiety, or other psychological and physical symptoms such as depression, fatigue, anger or jealousy, Five Element Acupuncture relieves symptoms by dealing with the root of the problem - an imbalance in energy flows built up over time.


"If the body is sick the mind worries and the spirit grieves; if the mind is sick the body and the spirit will suffer from its confusion; if the spirit is sick there will be no will to care for the body or mind."

- J.R. Worsley

About Alex Charles

Alex Charles first met Gerad Kite, his teacher, mentor and the world’s leading practitioner of Five Element Acupuncture, in France where he was living. Gerad treated Alex for a simple physical problem - but the treatment addressed core imbalances that dramatically transformed Alex’s view and attitude to life.

In fact, the treatment was so transformational that Alex then decided to make Five Element Acupuncture his new life calling, qualifying as a practitioner at Gerad’s Five Element Acupuncture school in the south of France. Alex now offers Five Element Acupuncture treatments in the London area.

"I've been suffering from stress and anxiety for ages and didn't want to address this with prescribed medicines, so I sought out Alex for treatment. I felt much better within the first few sessions -my symptoms had been general anxiety, low mood, and poor sleep. I'm now much improved and getting better by the day. Alex is understanding and considerate and was very accurate in his diagnosis."
