Ancienthealing wisdom meets modern technology. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine have over three thousand years of history helping millions of patients with pain, digestion, heart and lung problems, anxiety and depression, headaches , treating injuries, female and children problems. So it is complete and elegant system of medicine.
Can modern technology, computers and electronics add anything do this ancient wisdom? We at the Center for integrative medicine in Aventura definitely think so and that's what we practice. We use computers to help with traditional diagnostic methods based on Pulse, tongue and face examinations used in acupuncture for thousands of years. Computer diagnostic allows us to make the diagnosis process quicker and have an objective information which both practitioner and more importantly patient can see to measure and evaluate treatment progress. We use electronic devices instead of needles in a lot of cases to make treatment quicker and more comfortable for our patients, especially for those who are afraid of needles, little children, elderly and weak patients.
