If you’ve lived here in Tampa Bay for a while, you’ve no doubt heard a variety of claims about health products or medical procedures that promise huge results. When people spend so much time outdoors and on the beach, they’re always looking for easy ways to boost their health, appearance, and mood.
At Florida Wellness Medical Center in St. Pete, we offer just that with professional acupuncture therapy services. Our skilled acupuncturists are fully trained to evaluate your acupuncture needs, determine the best treatment path, and perform acupuncture therapy in a safe, clean, and welcoming facility.
Ancient Chinese doctors believed that the body relies on free energy flow to maintain optimal health. Anything that blocks that energy flow, like disease, causes a loss of functioning and deterioration of health.
Energy flows down paths known as meridians within the body. These paths converge at certain points, known as acupoints, that are associated with a certain body part or function. There are over 350 acupoints in the human body. After determining the best combination of acupoints to treat your symptoms, an acupuncturist will insert several tiny, ultra-thin needles into the acupoints just below the skin. The needles clear the acupoints’ blockages and allow energy to flow freely again, promoting quick recovery and better overall health.
Even though sticking needles in your body sounds painful, it’s really not. Most patients don’t even feel the needles at all, while others just feel a slight discomfort. With sessions that only last 20-30 minutes and no required downtime, acupuncture will have you in and out and feeling your best in no time!
Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in helping treat a variety of conditions, including:

Many people are not used to spending money each month on preventative health techniques, but will happily spend hundreds of dollars on beauty products and treatments. Improve yourself from the inside out with acupuncture – one of the best preventative medical care methods available. Regular acupuncture sessions encourage cellular turnover and renewal, promote the healing of injuries, and help maintain great overall health.
Because the health-boosting benefits of acupuncture treatments are hard to deny, many insurers are now offering acupuncture coverage as part of their regular portfolio of preventative care. Insurance companies know how much money can be saved by prioritizing prevention and early interventions, so take the hint and contact your health insurance company to find out exactly what your plan covers.
If your insurance doesn’t cover acupuncture, or if you don’t have insurance, consider our monthly acupuncture subscription program or purchasing a package of acupuncture visits for a discounted rate.
