I recently moved from NY to Florida, and after lifting so many heavy boxes, I found myself suffering from sciatic pain and plantar fasciitis. I didn't want to take pills and incur the side effects, so I decided to give acupuncture a try. After the second treatment, my pain subsided cobsiderably and I was finally able to sleep at night! I was elated! Donna is extremely professional, compassionate, and gentle, and I would recommend her to anyone who prefers the natural approach.

Dr. Christina is great. After 5 years of back pain that would not go away, after one treatment my pain was gone. The clinic is clean, relaxing, and has nice views. Dr. Christina took time to explain my treatments with easy conversation. She also practices a Japanese style that was different that what I had experienced the other times I tried acupuncture. Definitely recommend.

    I was at the time a small business owner who worked out of my truck. I had horrible shooting pains down my right arm and was so weak in that arm that i could not lift it above my shoulder. I had been evaluated by a chiropractor that I often relied on, but was unable to give me relief thru adjustments. I also tried massage therapy and acupuncture, no help. I went to see a famous orthopedic surgeon and he wanted to put me on Percocet and do exploratory surgery. I was telling a friend of mine about my situation and he gave me John Romano's business card. I thought at the time it was another gimmick, but was so desperate I would try anything. John came to my home and set up his table, he has a small machine that uses electricity. He passed this over some pressure points and spent time going over old scare tissue on my body. It was amazing. When he was done I was pain free and within a day i had all the strength returned to my right arm. I was able to do push ups for the first time in over a year. I had one other follow up with John, but was completely healed by this procedure. I am not one to write reviews, but I want people in south Florida to know that John's therapy works. If you have been struggling with a painful body part do not hesitate to contact John, he is a true professional who cares deeply about his patients, his therapies and his gardening. All my respect and admiration to John Romano who is a healer in the true sense of the word. Lawrence Morin

    How does acupuncture work?

    Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

    What are the benefits of acupuncture?

    There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

    What is an acupuncture treatment?

    An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.

    How often do you need to get acupuncture?

    How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
