Jacksonville Acupuncture Doctor Mary Romaine Treats Acute and Chronic Illnesses
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture originated in China over 5,000 years ago. It focuses on harmonizing the body, mind and spirit. It works to remove physical and emotional blockages and to strengthen the immune system.
Mary’s variety of treatment techniques has produced success in quite a diverse range of patient complaints. The initial consultation with Mary takes about 90 minutes and consists of a thorough history, evaluation and complete treatment. Follow-up visits usually take one hour. Acute conditions can be resolved in 4-6 treatments while chronic conditions may require more extended sessions. Mary also suggests her clients follow Chinese tradition and receive an acupuncture treatment at least 4 times a year–to ensure wellness as the body adjusts to the changing seasons.
Herbology vs. Western Drugs
Western herbs mainly treat symptoms; Chinese herbs treat the root cause of the underlying disease pattern. As a trained Chinese Herbologist, Mary has access to over 120 herbal formulas and can fully customize an herbal program for her patients, designed to compliment and enhance the acupuncture treatments and speed recovery.
