At Florida Complete Wellness, we know that deep and lasting healing are only possible when the root causes of illness are addressed. By understanding the core systems of the body, how they are related, and how their function can be restored, many chronic illnesses can be prevented and even reversed.
One way to think of us is as “health detectives.” We focus on identifying and addressing the underlying cause of an illness, rather than just suppressing symptoms.
Like all detectives, we use a variety of tools in our investigations, including, detailed questionnaires, a thorough medical history and examination, and comprehensive laboratory tests (blood, urine, stool and saliva testing).
We then use nutritional therapy, Chinese herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, detoxification, and lifestyle changes to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance.
We work with patients from all over the globe with a wide range of chronic health problems, from digestive disorders, to chronic infections, to autoimmune disease, to hypothyroidism. Patients who do best under our care:
From the rainforest of Belize comes this deeply rich traditional method of addressing imbalances in the reproductive and lumbosacral regions. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy address position and health of the pelvic and abdominal organs. The work is best known for the correction of the prolapsed, fallen, or tilted uterus and for the prevention and treatment of benign prostate enlargement in men, and for relief of many common digestive disorders. Initial session: 1.5 hours Follow up: 45 min (Can be combined with acupuncture)
Acupuncture Point Injection, or Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT), is an integrative therapy that blends the best of Chinese Medicine with conventional and homeopathic medicine. Employing this technique, AIT certified Acupuncture Physicians inject natural therapeutic substances, such as homeopathic remedies or vitamins, into acupuncture points specific to your wellness needs.
By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a deeper level and create a healing climate.
AIT is particularly effective for the resolution of acute and chronic pain in the body, particularly in the shoulder, back, knee, and neck. We also use AIT techniques in many of our weight loss protocols, Cosmetic Acupuncture programs, and even our B-12 injections.
Sometimes referred to as “biopuncture,” AIT earned well-deserved attention in early 2011and again in 2014 when Dr. Mehmet Oz featured the therapy on his television show.
In order to utilize AIT as a therapy, licensed Acupuncture Physicians must complete additional didactic and clinical training beyond their traditional education. An additional 60 hour certification in AIT must be earned in order to practice this technique.
The practice of Gua Sha comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine and dates back to the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644) when they used jade stones to scrape the skin all over the body to treat diseases. This process is believed to stimulate blood circulation to the muscles, tissues and organs; detoxing the body of stagnate “qi” reducing stiffness, pain and increasing mobility (Singapore TCM College).
While some may view Gua Sha as folk medicine, western scientific studies done by Harvard University and the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany, have showed Gua Sha to show significant improvements in decreasing pain and increasing microcirculation.
The practice of Gua Sha facial (much gentler than the body therapy and does not cause redness) has recently become more popular. Many have dubbed it the “Eastern Face Lift” or “Eastern Botox,” for it’s abilities to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, plump, tighten and rejuvenate skin; even decrease dark under-eye circles and puffiness.
Similar to body gua sha, the gua sha facial application stimulates blood circulation and detoxification, while relaxing tense muscles that cause wrinkles to form. This treatment takes 30-45 min, and is accompanied by a soothing Chinese herbal facial massage and take-home guasha stone of your own.
*Please note that because this treatment focuses on skin rejuvenation, extractions are not included. If you have facial areas treated with Botox or fillers in the last 3 months, these areas cannot be treated with Facial Gua Sha.
