Does acupuncture help with……

By far, the most common reason prospective patients call the clinic is to ask if acupuncture can help their chief complaint. The short answer: yes.

For a longer answer:

Acupuncture can treat a myriad of conditions and the World Health Organization and National Institute of Health recognize it as effective in addressing over 100 chief complaints. The majority of patients seek acupuncture treatment to help ease pain, for which it is extremely effective. In the clinic, the most common area of pain for patients is their low back or neck. We routinely provide treatment for degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis of the spine, sciatica, and generalized muscular tension. We also work with pain from plantar fasciitis, joint overuse or injury, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and much more.

Acupuncture’s usefulness does not stop at the treatment of pain. On a regular basis at the clinic we see patients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, autoimmune conditions, infertility, hormonal imbalances (PMS, menopause), IBS, acid reflux, allergies, carpal tunnel, side effects of chemotherapy and cancer treatment; the list is seemingly endless.

While acupuncture can treat a variety of conditions, it is not always the most effective option (i.e. acupuncture can treat a urinary tract infection, but it would be much more effective to get antibiotics). No matter what complaint you are seeking treatment for, we will always be honest with you regarding the efficacy of acupuncture in your specific case.

But, for most patients, the answer is yes, acupuncture can absolutely help you. We look forward to seeing you in the clinic!

Welcome Christina Carrillo!

Many of you have noticed that the clinic has become a popular destination for those in our community. In order to make sure that affordable acupuncture is provided to as many people as possible, we are pleased to announce the addition of Christina Carrillo to the clinic team!

Before becoming a licensed Florida acupuncturist, Christina was a physical therapist and worked for ten years in outpatient orthopedics. She and her husband enjoy raising their three beautiful daughters in Fort Myers.

Christina’s diverse educational background, passion for community acupuncture and compassionate heart make her an asset to the clinic and to you all, our patients. We are excited that she has joined our team and can’t wait for you all to love her as much as we do.

Christina will be available for appointments 10am-2pm on Tuesdays and 1pm-5pm on Fridays, as well as taking care of any walk ins on those days.

Welcome LivingSocial and Groupon People!

Welcome LivingSocial and Groupon People!

Hey everyone, we’re really excited to have all you beautiful LivingSocial and Groupon people coming to our clinic! We ran one about a year ago, and had a few questions that kept coming up, so we figured this time around we’d put up a new FAQ just for you folks! If you’ve got a specific question that we haven’t answered here, please leave us a comment in the comments section below, or just shoot us an email and we’ll answer it in a hurry. You can also see our regular FAQ and New Patient page for more general questions.

The Groupon/LivingSocial deal says the acupuncture is done in a group treatment setting, does this mean I have to get undressed in front of strangers?

No, not at all. The style of acupuncture we practice uses acupuncture points that are mostly on the arms and legs below the elbow or knee, which allows us to treat problems anywhere on the body without putting needles directly in the affected area. We treat a whole lot of back pain here, for example, and it is extremely rare that anyone gets a needle in their back.

Your site says there’s a $10 new patient fee, does the voucher cover that?

Yes, buying the Groupon or LivingSocial voucher means you won’t pay a thing for as many acupuncture treatments as your voucher is good for.

Do I need an appointment?

Mostly yes. We gladly take walk-ins, but if you make an appointment you’re much less likely to have to wait to be seen. Scheduling online is a breeze, just click on the purple “Book Now” button on the right to get started. If need-be, you can certainly call, text (yes, we will respond to texts) or email, but if you’re reading this you’re already online, so give the online scheduling a try, won’t you?

Hey, I bought one package, can I split the treatments with a friend?

No, each package of 2 or 4 treatments can only be used by one person, but we do have some ways you could share some affordable acupuncture with a friend. If our deal is still live on Groupon: 1) Share it on Facebook! Your friends may want to buy their own and come on in with you! 2) Buy an extra few treatment packages as gifts for your friends. If our special is no longer live, you can still take advantage of our own in-house promo: 3) For the whole month of April, we’ll be doing a “bring a friend and their treatment is $10”. That will be unlimited for the whole month, so bring as many friends as you’d like as often as you’d like, and their treatment will only be $10 each time two or more of you come in together!

Hey, I know the deal page said I could buy one for me, and three as gifts for friends, but I want to use all four for me. That’s cool right?

No. If our regular $15-45 sliding scale is unaffordable for you, please talk to us, we may be willing to work something out on a case by case basis, but only one voucher per person please.
