I began receiving acupuncture and deep tissue massage for fibromyalgia from Jordi in 1997 and have attained a great deal of improvement. When I began I was facing going on disability but today I am still working at the age of almost 68! Over time he corrected painful muscle conditions resulting from stress and several accidents which greatly reduced my daily pain level. I still see him on a maintenance basis and enjoy his support of my journey to continue to improve my physical health through nutrition and exercise. Jordi is a person of great integrity and is always seeking to add to his knowledge of how to help his patients attain optimum health and happiness.
I have struggled with lower back and neck pain since I was 18. Thanks to the care I have received with Five Elements my pain has decreased significantly. The monthly maintenance I receive helps keep my back and neck pain free. Even when there are those times I am careless and my lower back goes out, Jordi is always able to get me back on my feet. Also after years at a desk job, I have developed issues with my shoulders and forearms. Jordi has been able to help manage that pain as well.
I have been with Five Elements for a little more then 6 years and have never missed a monthly treatment, I wouldn't think of it. Thanks Jordi for keeping my pain under control!
I had regular migraines before I started using Jordi's services. He has an intuitive sense that allows him to zero in on the problem areas. My migraines now rarely appear and when they do they are less intense. As a practitioner he is very professional and constantly seeking to improve his knowledge and skills. I have recommended several people to him who report they are similarly satisfied.
I met Jordi of Five Elements Acupuncture Center 15 years ago when I fell over paralyzed at the waist. I was frozen on the floor of my kitchen and could not move. Last week I swam 5 miles in a cold ocean race.
I regularly use all of the Five Elements therapies. My wife, my parents in their eighties, and my sports minded friends and family have all depended upon Jordi and his holistic, hands on approach to health.
Don't wait until you too are paralyzed. Get into the Center and see Jordi Capdet as soon as possible.
Dr. Pat, age 58
I began seeing Jordi nearly 2 years ago because of limited mobility in my shoulder. Thanks to his skill, the problem has cleared up. I continue to see him regularly, because I now understand the importance of massage as a preventative measure, thanks to his professional explanations and his friendly manner which encourages questions.
Oriental Medicine is a coherent medical system which has been supporting the health of human kind for the last few millennia. The system includes a number of methodologies such as acupuncture, herbology, gua sha, tui na, moxibustion, and cupping, just to mention a few. Acupuncture consists of the insertion of needles into specific locations in the body (acupuncture points), which will effect "the qi" (life energy) in the "Channels" (the pathways where the qi flows through), resulting in physiological changes. By manipulating "the qi" in these "Channels", we can effect the state of health.
Despite the fact that acupuncture is well known for treating pain, it can be used to virtually treat any ailment, acute or chronic. As a matter of fact, acupuncture is much more efficient in treating chronic disorders than western medicine is, the reason being that the latest focuses on suppressing symptoms, rather than treating the root cause of the condition.
Thus, acupuncture can be used to treat from an acute common cold, to a chronic case of rheumatoid arthritis.
