jordiJordi Capdet was born on December 5, 1959, in Barcelona, Spain. There, he was pursuing an education in music theory and classical guitar. However, in 1982, after seeing members of his close family succumbing to a variety of degenerative disorders, inadequately treated by western medicine, he began to develop an interest in alternative medicine.

Thus, in 1982, he decided to move to San Diego, California, to first join Mueller College of Holistic Studies, where he received his Holistic Health Practitioner degree in 1985. Right after that, he began his Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, graduating in April 12, 1998. He also holds a postgraduate degree in Acupuncture Orthopedics from Lerner Education Institute.

Throughout this same time period, Jordi showed an interest in exercise; weight training in particular. He realized the unquestionable value of muscle strengthening and its important role in health. Thus, for the last twenty-six years, he has been studying and experimenting with weight training, as well as other health promoting art forms such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong. He is also undergoing training at the Chinese Martial Arts Institute, where he is studying Green Dragon kung fu, under the supervision of Si Fu Dwait Love, a remarkable man and teacher.

As the result of these life experiences, Jordi has developed a unique and effective way to achieve the ultimate state of health. He acknowledges that there is no “magic bullet” to health, no “secret fountain of youth” or “Holy Grail.” Optimal health is achieved through the regular daily practice of basic principles which synergistically build the basis of human health. He calls these basic principles “the Four Pillars of Health”: Nutrition, Supplementation, Exercise, and Meditation.

Today, Jordi continues to strive in his quest for knowledge by studying under the supervision of some of the best teachers in the field of Oriental Medicine.


About Five Elements

  • Acupuncture

    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.

  • Orthopedics

    Western medicine does not have much to offer when it comes to soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. Most conditions are misdiagnosed, and all they can offer patients are drugs which only address the symptoms, not the root of the problem, and have dangerous side effects. The soft tissue techniques I have developed, are designed to solve the problem at the root.

Our Latest Testimonials

  • Joan Davidow

    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.

  • Jack

    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!
