The people behind the practice

About Alex Charles and Gerad Kite



Alex Charles

Having left the London and the hectic world of advertising in 2003, Alex moved to the south of France where he set up and ran a successful boutique guesthouse for ten years.

It was in France that Alex met Gerad Kite, the world’s foremost Five Element Acupuncture practitioner. Treated by Gerad for a relatively simple physical problem, Alex found that not only was the problem cured, but he found himself with a total transformed attitude to life. It was this transformation that led him to decide to become a Five Element acupuncturist himself.

A new beginning

He gained a place at Gerad Kite’s LIFEA school of acupuncture and learnt from the master himself. He is now a practising Five Element Acupuncture practitioner, based in London, and is an active member of AFEA.

Alex offers every client a very individual and highly personal approach to their treatment and is looking forward to working with you. Please contact him to discover how Five Element Acupuncture could help you achieve a greater sense of balance in your life.
