Acupoint Injection Therapy

The state of Florida licenses Acupuncture Physicians with advanced training to inject any Vitamins, Herbs, Homeopathic remedies and natural substances with a small needle. This is a large part of my practice as it is very effective for many ailments such as pain, facial rejuvenation and chronic conditions. Some popular injections are Vitamin B12, Traumeel and Homeopathic Collagen. All  requirements for the State of Florida are met.

Natural Anti-Aging Treatments

Homeopathic Anti-Aging Injections using a small insulin needle injecting natural remedies in the acupuncture points on the face help produce collagen, decrease lines and add elasticity.  This may also be done on body parts of choice such as the hands or neck. Scarring and blotches may also be reduced.  Acupuncture facial rejuvenation using the Mei Zen protocol are a series of sessions using tiny acupuncture needles inserted in facial points to reduce lines, improve elasticity and promote collagen. Microcurrent Color Light treatments are relaxing, gentle sessions using low level electricity with light (this is not Laser) on the face to improve muscle tone, improve Qi flow and reduce lines.  This treatment includes facial and foot massage.  All treatments are in sessions of 6 or 12.  Free consults are recommended.


Homeopathy is an energetic form of remedies that stimulate your body to heal itself.  It is often prescribed in conjunction with acupuncture and herbs.  It is most often taken in oral doses, but also may be used in a topical form or injections under the skin.  This treatment has no side effects and is used to treat ailments such as pain, anti-aging & weight loss.

Tui Na

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat internal diseases.


Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Ionic Foot Bath

This protocol is in 6 or 12 weekly sessions that detox the body through ionization of the cells.  The ph balanced water equalizes the ph in the cells of the feet witch then have a chain reaction to other cells throughout the body.  Water in the bath will change color depending on the ph of your body but contrary to popular belief, your feet do not do the detoxifying.  After the session your cellular structure is in better balance and communication and the body detoxifies normally through urination, sweat and bowels.  This is a great addition to weight loss, smoking cessation and general health and well being.

Weight loss & Smoking Cessation

Combinations of acupuncture, herbs and homeopathic remedies are incorporated to set up an individual plan of treatment to help you lose weight or quit smoking or substances. 

Infertility, Pregnancy & Pediatrics

It has been proven that acupuncture in addition to western medical treatments increases fertility by 60%.  Treatments are individually based in a caring environment. 

Acupuncture and massage are great modalities during pregnancy, treating nausea, headaches and pain.  I have advanced training in this area in pregnancy massage, teaching infant massage and assisting in births

Children benefit greatly with acupuncture.  Taking the fear of needles into consideration, I use a painless microcurrent treatment to stimulate points treating asthma, allergies, focus issues, sleep issues and general well being. With my first degree in Early Childhood Ed, I love children and they are welcome in my practice!!!
