Rufus Jordan

Rufus practices a combination of Five Element Constitutional acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture and also combines other treatment modalities such as massage, cupping, moxibustion, and electro-acupuncture.

An integral part of his practice 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 empower his patients to obtain and sustain good health and wellbeing.

During his 4-year degree course Rufus volunteered as an auricular (ear) acupuncture practitioner for a charity in Brighton, Pathways To Health. In October 2008 Rufus spent 6 weeks travelling around China, which included observing and practicing acupuncture in a mainstream hospital in Guangzhou.

Rufus has continued his professional development as an acupuncturist by attending practical workshops and online webinars including: pain management, musculo-skeletal conditions, sports injuries, mental health, gynaecology, fertility, pregnancy, menopause, men’s health, electro-acupuncture, and traditional Chinese nutrition.

Before becoming an acupuncturist Rufus studied a Telecommunications Engineering Degree in Plymouth and spent 10 years working in the field of IT at American Express in Brighton and then continued to maintain his interest in IT working in a charitable organisation in Whitehawk, Brighton for a further 10 years whilst studying his acupuncture degree.

Rufus’ inspiration for becoming an acupuncturist came from his own personal experience of the wide ranging benefits that acupuncture can give patients when he suffered with a prolapsed disc in his lower back in 2001.

Rufus is a keen endurance runner, swimmer and cyclist. He loves living in Brighton & Hove for both its natural surroundings, regularly being called up to The Downs and down to the sea, as well as the City’s diverse culture and entertainment. Rufus’ greatest pleasure in life is spending time with his son.
