About Alexis Rotella

Alexis Rotella has studied with masters in the field of classical acupuncture therapy — including the founder of the Five-Element System in the West, the late Prof. J.R. Worsley, and his wife, Judy Becker-Worsley, among other renowned acupuncturists and holistic healers.

This education and experience has given Alexis a deep understanding of the complexities of the art and science of meridians.

Unlike the acupuncture clinics — where they treat many people at once — Alexis spends focused time understanding your unique health challenges, and designs a customized treatment plan so you feel better faster.


I graduated from The Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Hallandale, Florida where I completed my clinicals with the late Dr. J.R. Worsley.

I am a published author, poet, and artist. In 1991 when the world was just beginning to consider that our thoughts might have an impact on health, I pioneered that concept in my acclaimed book How Words and Thoughts Affect Your Body.
