Acupuncture Treatment inDowntown
During the thousands of years of existence, acupuncture treatment has undergone some changes. While it still involves insertion of needles in strategically selected points on the body, modern needles are made of stainless steel and are much thinner than they were thousands or even hundreds of years ago. As a result, acupuncture treatment in the past was accompanied by significant discomfort or even pain, but nowadays the needle insertion can barely be felt. In fact, acupuncture treatment is now often used to relieve stress; in the past, it would probably have been impossible.
Despite the long history—or maybe because of it—the theory that guided acupuncturists to diagnose the cause of a problem and to decide on the point combination is remains in use. This theory, otherwise known as the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, is also used for herbal medicine, cupping, gua sha, tui na, and other modalities, in addition to acupuncture, and can be used to treat all kinds of conditions.
The practitioners at the Advanced Holistic Center in Downtown Miami location all have extensive training and use the holistic approach of traditional Chinese medicine alongside the evidence- and research-based findings, in order to help our patients they best they can. Due to the scientific explorations and findings since 1950s, acupuncture has become a flexible and versatile method that can work well by itself or as a complementary therapy to a treatment from conventional western medicine.
Facial Rejuvenation in Downtown MiamiAcupuncture and other therapies of traditional Chinese medicine have been used for cosmetic purposes since the methods’ inception, a couple of thousand years ago. Modern facial rejuvenation procedure, however, can do much more with a lot less pain and discomfort. The acupuncture needles that are used for cosmetic purposes on the face are only slightly thicker than a human hair, making very delicate and precise insertion possible.
While acupuncture and other modalities involved in facial rejuvenation can improve physical appearance, the treatment needs to address underlying issues. Stress, anxiety, insomnia can contribute to the fatigue and exhaustion, but they can also worsen the way you look. Luckily, combining an acupuncture treatment for overall wellbeing with specific point combinations for restoration or enhancement of physical appearance can do much more than facial rejuvenation procedure alone.At the Advanced Holistic Center’s Downtown Miami branch, the practitioners spend a large portion of your visit—more so during the initial session—for evaluation of your situation, individually, so they can select the most effective therapy elements for the best possible treatment outcome.
Infertility Treatment in Downtown MiamiResearch has demonstrated that acupuncture and herbal medicine can be effective in treatment infertility in men and women. On the one hand, a frequent cause of infertility is inflammation, and acupuncture is an effective treatment of inflammation with almost no side effects, on the other hand what makes acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine successful is its versatility: the treatment is typically adapted to each individual patient.
The reality is that traditional Chinese medicine, part of which is acupuncture, is not designed to treat any health issue directly. It works by improving the organism’s health through correcting any imbalances among internal organs. Once the body is in its optimal health, it should not have trouble reproducing.While the experts at the Advanced Holistic Center in Downtown Miami can work as the primary or secondary therapists, we strongly encourage you to try acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine to treat infertility before turning to much more expensive and invasive procedures, such as in vitro fertilization.
The Advanced Holistic Center in Downtown MiamiAll the practitioners are licensed by the State of Florida and have extensive training in their professions. The overall treatment approach of the Advanced Holistic Center is, as you may have guessed from the title, holistic. This means that we try to improve and maintain your health in general, and then we address any specific symptoms or complaints.
At the same time, we have many patients who use our services as complementary to other forms of therapy, such as physical therapy, chiropractic, surgical, or pharmacologic, and our therapists can just as effectively treat specific symptoms. For example, patients who receive a course of physical therapy or chiropractic treatment for scoliosis often come to us to help them reduce back pain.We do recommend that you try our practitioners before doing anything drastic, such as surgery or medications, unless it’s an emergency. More often than not, acupuncture can reduce your dependence on certain medications or help you avoid the need for surgery, but it may not always be possible, and each patient’s situation needs to be evaluated individually.
