Everyone can feel better, and Asian medicine can help.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest health care systems in the world, and is especially effective at treating chronic health conditions with a minimum of side effects. But you don’t have to travel to China to get the benefits of this amazing medicine. Vitalichi Acupuncture is a multi-disciplinary holistic clinic located in Port Charlotte, Florida, that is ready to put you on the path to healing with a minimum of side effects. We welcome patients from Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Burnt Store, Cleveland, Nocatee, Arcadia, Wachula, Rotonda, Englewood, North Port and beyond.
As an acupuncture physician and massage therapist, I instruct and treat my patients with the five pillars of Chinese Medicine, listed in order of importance:
3) Massage (which traditionally included chiropractic, but is a separate specialty in the U.S.)
4) Herbal medicine
Many people are surprised to learn that acupuncture is the tool of last result in the arsenal of Chinese Medicine. The theory is that putting the most effort into your everyday choices makes the biggest difference in your overall health. If you feel like trying to make sensible, healthy choices is an uphill battle, Chinese Medicine might have the answers you're looking for. As an acupuncture physician, I can help you create wellness plans that are easy to implement and fit into your lifestyle.
