Acupuncture in Coral Gables

Lissa Nirenberg, D.O.M. is practicing acupuncture in Miami with her office centrally located in downtown Coral Gables. Acupuncture is only one of several natural approaches to healing included in Oriental Medicine. This ancient medical system combines acupuncture, herbology, and oriental bodywork to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness. Acupuncture is effective for physical, psychological and emotional problems. Acupuncture originated in China more than 3,000 years ago, and due to its proven effectiveness, has been embraced throughout the world.
Energy circulates throughout the body along well-defined pathways, or meridians. Points on the skin along these pathways are energetically connected to specific organs, body structures, and systems. If this energy circulation is disrupted, optimum function is affected and this results in pain or illness.

Acupuncture points are stimulated to balance the circulation of energy, which influences the health of the entire being. Since acupuncture promotes the body’s natural healing ability, most conditions can be corrected or improved. Acupuncture is part of a comprehensive system of preventive health care and health maintenance. Many athletes have discovered that acupuncture treatments help them to achieve optimum performance levels, as well as treat their injuries.

This makes acupuncture in Miami a wonderful resource for local athletes. Acupuncture detoxification treatments have been recognized as a valid form of therapy for chemical dependency problems, which includes helping those with drug, alcohol and smoking additions.

The National Institute of Health (NIH), Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and the World Health Organization (WHO) have all given their stamp of approval to use acupuncture treatments for various conditions. Acupuncture physicians in Miami are licensed as primary health care physicians, and are trained to treat the whole body as an integrated system. This includes diagnosing the cause of an illness and treating it, thereby relieving the body of its symptoms. Oriental Medicine and Western Medicine can complement one another and can be combined to obtain optimal health. Working in conjunction with other health care providers in Miami is important to Dr. Nirenberg. Surprisingly, acupuncture is the most effective new development in American health care and is several thousand years old.
