Counseling - Herbal Medicine - Acupuncture
At Florida Acupuncture and Counseling our mission is to provide the highest quality patient-focused health care. By offering the highest level of care we enable people to live richer lives and reach their highest potential. Through this goal, we continually serve our patients and the community of Gainesville, Florida and its vicinity. To achieve our mission, we offer integrative services which incorporates both Western and Eastern Medicine modalities. These include Mental Health Counseling, Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), East Asian Medicine (Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Nutritional Counseling, Lifestyle Modification Recommendations, Gua Sha, and Moxibustion), Mindfulness, Meditation, and Hypnotherapy.
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are among some of the oldest healing practices in the world. These ancient branches of East Asian Medicine date back over 3,000 years. From their inception they have been used to prevent, diagnosis, and treat disease, as well as improve overall general health. Acupuncture techniques are based on the theory of meridians, or pathways leading to specific acupoints where energy flows within the body. The body maintains a healthy state by having an ample supply of energy flowing through the body via the meridian system. Because illness is thought to be the consequence of an imbalance or blockage of the meridians, stimulation of acupoints restores the body’s natural flow of energy so the body can repair itself.
At Florida Acupuncture and Counseling, our goal is to provide exceptional quality care for each individual. The physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of the body are all interrelated. Each person has a different story formed from the unique events throughout our lives that shape us, often throwing our bodies off balance. At Florida Acupuncture and Counseling we strive to formulate a treatment plan specific to you in order to aid you in your journey back into balance by helping restore body, mind, and spirit. We desire to be set apart, giving light to everyone who comes through our door; to create a healing environment where patients do not feel like they're just another name on a schedule, but a place where patients will be filled with peace and joy.
Pervasive daily stress punctuated by periodic catastrophe is the current character of both our neighborhoods and the global arena. Urban life stimulates a complex and often malignant dynamic between one’s self and one’s surroundings. Maahaah Yoga promotes physical rejuvenation, emotional and mental stability as an effective response to pressure and trauma in this environment.
Maahaah Yoga integrates strategies from a group of traditional disciplines, all linked by a familiar sense of the absolute, or the essential truth. Maahaah Yoga is a practical combination of breathing techniques from Asian and African energetic systems.
Cultivate Life Force Energy The objective of MAAHAAH-ROOH MEDICAL QI-GONG is to teach a step-by-step method of exercise to keep the body and mind in optimal fitness. This highly effective and easily retainable system of Qi-Gong is designed for everyone— families, working adults, students and seniors. This very low-impact form of exercise includes standing movements (Zhan Zhuang) as well as slow-motion movements similar in style to Tai Chi Chuan.
The purpose is to detox the body’s organs of impurities and toxins, then regenerate and invigorate the body so that one feels refreshed, both physically and mentally. Individuals will enhance their fluidity of movement, coordination and balance, resulting in greater flexibility and stress reduction, through the application of deep relaxation, breathing techniques and methods of stillness.
MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION
Calm & Purify the Mind By calming the mind, one can reduce stress, anxiety and be able to free oneself from depressed mental states. The purifying aspects of sitting meditation allow one to eradicate poisons of hate, anger, fear, greed and envy. These mental poisons are transformed into contentment. One develops the sense of peace, which is the fertile ground for a feeling of joy. The key to these interdependent aspects of mindfulness is to live in the realm of optimism and enjoyment. By learning the simple steps of mind calming, one will find themselves mentally renewed and refreshed to face the challenges of daily life.
