Rufus Jordanback

BSc(Hons) LicAc MBAcC

I graduated from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (Kingston University) in 2008 with a first class honours degree in Acupuncture. As a member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) I am bound by their codes of practice ensuring the highest standards in professional, ethical and safe practice.

I was invited to join Brighton Health & Wellbeing Clinic when it opened in October 2013 after running a busy practice at The Wellbeing Centre (formerly The Acupuncture Clinic) in Hove for 6 years.

I practice a combination of Five Element Constitutional acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture and combine other treatment modalities such as massage, cupping, moxabustion, and electro-acupuncture. An integral part of my treatment is offering specific advice and support (based on traditional Chinese Medical theory) in making lifestyle changes (e.g. diet, exercise, sleep, work/life balance, etc.) to help patients obtain and sustain good health and wellbeing.

During my 4 year training I volunteered as an auricular (ear) acupuncture practitioner for an acupuncture charity in Brighton, Pathways To Health. I continue my professional development as an acupuncturist by attending practical workshops and online webinars. My post graduate training in acupuncture includes: pain management, musculo-skeletal conditions, sports injuries, mental health, gynaecology, fertility, pregnancy, menopause, men's health, electro-acupuncture, and traditional Chinese nutrition. In October 2008 I spent 6 weeks travelling around China, 2 weeks of which was spent observing and practicing acupuncture in a mainstream hospital in Guangzhou.

Before becoming an acupuncturist, I studied a Telecommunications Engineering Degree in Plymouth and spent 10 years working in the field of IT at American Express in Brighton. I continue to maintain an interest in IT working part-time in a charitable organisation in Whitehawk, Brighton.

I was inspired to become an acupuncturist through my own experience of the wide ranging benefits that acupuncture gave me when I suffered with a prolapsed disc in my lower back.

I practice Qi Gong and regularly head up to the South Downs on my mountain bike or on foot, whatever the weather. I also enjoy listening to and composing music, cooking and travelling. My biggest pleasure in life is spending time with my son.
