Dr Alex was an excellent presenter – I was able to understand what he was delivering and the explanations were very descriptive and comprehensible. Humble as well and willing to share information.
I am happy with Transformational Acupuncture workshop because:
- Alex let us to treat each other so we can feel that the combination of the points really work on our body.
- The handbook is amazing. It is very easy to understand and follow.

Best seminar that I’ve attended !
The healing we all received from giving and receiving the Transformational Acupuncture was truly indicative of how amazing this system is!
All participants were glowing by Monday afternoon !
Alex and Rosie were very supportive and bent over backwards to make the three days as informative and accessible as possible.
I feel very lucky to have been in the first group of this level one training . I’ll definitely be using this system on my clients .
I personally have never experienced such a sense of having been in a deep meditative, healing/ expanded consciousness state from receiving acupuncture until experiencing Transformational Acupuncture at the seminar!
The workshop was fabulous! And so wonderfully organised
Xxxxx and I have been swapping treatments weekly ever since the workshop and it’s been pretty amazing! I came back from Sydney to some pretty major life upheavals, and normally would have had anxiety off the charts over it, but it just hasn’t happened, so thank you! I would obviously love to share this with people who need or could benefit from it.
I have known Dr. Alex since he attended my first Esoteric Acupuncture workshop in Melbourne, Australia in 2010.
He is a dedicated teacher with a unique combination of over 35 years knowledge and practice as a family physician, including a 14 year history of training medical doctors, and 20 years knowledge and practice as an acupuncturist.
I fully endorse him to teach Esoteric Acupuncture to raise the consciousness of the planet.
Dr. Alex Joannou is a healer of healers. His brilliant mind and compassionate heart has bridged his medical training with an extraordinary acupuncture application. The result is called Transformational Acupuncture. I have experienced Dr. Alex and Transformational Acupuncture ‘up close and personal’, and his healing work is a powerful catalyst for transforming the way symptoms, stress, and disease are viewed and treated.
