“After completing my BS in Human Services in New York City, I moved to Florida with my husband and our two children. A few years later, I met with a former coworker, who was studying acupuncture. I was fascinated with her explanation about how this ancient medicine works. So I started reading about it and decided to try it. The results were remarkable and I immediately made the decision to study Traditional Chinese Medicine.”

“Practicing holistic medicine for me is not just a job, it rejoices my spirit and energizes me. It is really a fascinating experience to help a patient to achieve wellness. When I am not practicing Chinese medicine, I spend times with my grandchildren. When they are not around, I like to read, listen to music, walk on the beach, and spend time with my husband.”

Dr. Aracena’s background includes a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, along with a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Bachelor’s degree in Health Science.

She also holds a BS in Human Services and is a Master herbalist, NADA protocol certified, and is certified in Cold Laser therapy.
