Pain Management

The majority of people who go for acupuncture treatments, do so for the purpose of treating some sort of pain. While researchers began exploring the effectiveness of acupuncture to treat pain in 1970s, only by 1990s they collected enough evidence to conclude that acupuncture is, indeed, effective in treatment of chronic pain. In 1997, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommended acupuncture when conventional medical therapy was ineffective or as an adjunct treatment for those patients who experience side effects from medications. The NIH also specifically recommended acupuncture for postoperative pain and dental pain. Due to the differences in traditional Chinese and modern western medical systems, research findings still leave many questions unanswered, and the practitioners at the Advanced Holistic Center’s Downtown Miami acupuncture and Miami Beach acupuncture branches rely on classical acupuncture methods, which treat the whole person, rather than only the pain.

Women’s Health

An increasing number of women have been turning to acupuncture during the last decade, and many report good results from the treatments they had received. Research demonstrates that acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine are effective in treatment of infertility, hot flushes and other symptoms associated with menopause, endometriosis, and many other issues in women’s health.  The problem remains the same: practitioners rarely treat only symptoms, because acupuncture and traditional Chinese medical treatment, in general, vary greatly among patients, because each treatment is individually designed for each patient, which is exactly what the Advanced Holistic Center’s Downtown Miami acupuncture and Miami Beach acupuncture branches are all about: a holistic approach to each patient. According to the thousands of years of Chinese medicine, the practitioner’s goal is to ensure that the patient’s organs’ functions are in their optimal balance, and when they are the patient’s organism can heal itself without any additional help.

Men’s Health

An article about treatment of chronic prostatitis with “acupuncture combined with traditional Chinese medicine” published in 2021 in the medical journal Medicine stated, “Acupuncture combined with TCM is safe and effective for alleviating CP. It can be used as an effective treatment for chronic prostatitis in the clinic.” Similar findings are reported regarding other aspects of men’s health when treated with acupuncture and other modalities of traditional Chinese medicine, but the reality is somewhat different. Various issues with men’s health are often manifestations of other health issues, such as diabetes affecting erectile dysfunction, for example, or side effects of medications, such as some antihypertension drugs or medications that regulate bipolar disorders can cause. To find the true cause of a problem and an effective solution, practitioners need to evaluate each patient and design an individual treatment plan, which is what the experts at the Advanced Holistic Center’s Downtown Miami acupuncture and Miami Beach acupuncture branches do.

Wellness

Even though the word wellness, which is blending the words wellbeing and fitness in one word, was invented in 1950, this concept comes from ancient times and independently evolved in different parts of the world. What is so important about it is the idea of maintaining health, rather than treating health problems, and traditional Chinese medicine is excellent for prevention. Truth be told, acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, cupping, qigong, and other modalities of traditional Chinese medicine are more effective in correcting imbalances among organs when they are not too advanced, because one small issue when left untreated can develop into a chronic problem, which will take a long time to unravel. Following an individually designed wellness program can keep you healthy for much longer. The practitioners at the Advanced Holistic Center’s Downtown Miami acupuncture and Miami Beach acupuncture branches strongly recommend addressing small issues with a few simple treatments, instead of letting them accumulate and then spend months in therapy.
