Hurricane Irma: the Good, the Bad, and the Temporarily Relocated

Hurricane Irma: the Good, the Bad, and the Temporarily Relocated

Update: We are back open!

The power is back on and we will be open regular hours starting Monday 9/18 at 1pm! To help speed things getting back to normal for everyone we’ll have a few specials going this week:

  1. This week only we’ll be selling our 5-4-65 cards.
  2. First responders get treatments for just $10
  3. Linemen get treated free.
  4. If your power is still out, there’s no limit on how long you can nap. We spent a few nights with just the fan on and it was miserable. We get it!

Let’s all get back on track after Irma.

Original post follows:


Hey folks,

First off we are all OK, our house wasn’t damaged and we are well supplied with food/water/fuel/etc. Unfortunately we are also well supplied with heat and humidity, and neither our house nor the clinic have power. As of now both are still getting the same September 22 date many are seeing, but the way we see it a lousy hurricane won’t stop us from bringing acupuncture to our community!

We are working on getting online scheduling set up for these off-site locations, but for now we have scheduling available and will call everyone who schedules to make sure they know where they’re going.

Come see us at the following locations through the end of the week:

Thurs 9/14 830-130 Gindele Family Chiropractic on Dani Drive
4p-7p Millennial Brewing Company
Fri 9/15 10a-1p Gindele Family Chiropractic on Winkler
4p-7p Millennial Brewing Company
Sat 9/16 10a-2p Millennial Brewing Co

We are blessed to have the opportunity to continue working in spite of storm’s aftermath and would greatly appreciate your support of our clinic and our family.

Much Love,

Dom and Carly

Does acupuncture help with……

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!

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.
