Nothing seems to work when it comes to getting rid of your chronic stress and body aches. Maybe you are worried about using medication to treat pain and feel more comfortable with natural, holistic treatments. Weight loss is an everyday struggle but you have exhausted every avenue short of surgery. You have tried going the traditional weight loss route but have found that willpower alone does not work. Hunger continues to distract you throughout the day. Expensive anti-aging creams seem to be money wasted but you fear going under the knife. You see a few changes in your skin, making you wonder if a facelift is the only true way to see results.

There is hope in an unconventional approach — acupuncture.

Acupuncture is a natural, integrated treatment that stimulates your body’s ability to regulate and heal itself. Imagine living a more mindful life in which you regulate your appetite and lose weight more easily. A life in which the tension of the day easily melts away, leaving your muscles and joints pain-free. Think of what it could feel like to wake up to more youthful-looking skin. No more pushing through hunger. No more discomfort or soreness while you go about your day. No more wasted anti-wrinkle products.

Frequently Asked Questions

Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice. During a typical acupuncture session, a practitioner inserts fine needles into various points on the body and face that activate the flow of the body’s Qi, or vital force. When inserted into the skin, these needles also stimulate the nerves, muscles, and tissues, inducing the release of neuropeptides.
Neuropeptides help connect your brain and your body by stimulating the release of natural painkillers. With regular acupuncture sessions, patients like you can overcome a variety of challenges. Acupuncture helps patients:

Acupuncture for Pain

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Numbness and/or tingling on arms and hands
  • Back pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain

Acupuncture for Other Health Concerns

  • Tinnitus

While the thought of inserting needles into your skin and muscles might seem painful, these needles are much smaller and finer than those used in doctors’ offices. For reference, they are smaller than those used to give shots or draw blood.

Sensations might vary from person to person, but most people find that acupuncture isn’t painful when done correctly.

Only licensed practitioners are able to practice acupuncture with sterile needles. They receive thorough training to ensure proper technique and avoid risk of infection.

Dr. Rafael Padro combines Traditional Chinese Medicine (Yin-Yang, Five Elements, Acupuncture) with Western Medicine theories in his diagnosis and treatments. He holds a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a Bachelor of Health Science from The Acupuncture and Massage College in Miami, FL, and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Psychology from Excelsior College in Albany, NY.

Being a third-generation medical professional and learning the gratitude that is received when helping others, he knew what path he was going to follow. Even though his family’s background was more concentrated on a Western aspect of medicine, he knew he wanted to do something different. After researching while finishing his Bachelor Degree in Psychology, he introduced himself to Oriental Medicine. There, he realized that there were other ways you can heal patients, regardless of their conditions, and that combining Eastern methods with Western methods could benefit even more a patient recovery towards any disease.
