Acupuncture served as the main healthcare treatment for thousands of years, and it is still the go-to therapy for millions of people worldwide. Acupuncture physician Richard Browne is at the forefront of this field as both a practitioner and an educator.
Browne is the cofounder and president of Acupuncture and Massage College, which has been a community staple for more than 30 years. When not teaching budding acupuncturists how to strategically place needles or deflate sinister-looking balloon animals, he can be found at Affordable Acupuncture Clinic, practicing acupuncture himself or overseeing his interns while they practice it.
Browne and his staff also offer services ranging from cupping therapy to shiatsu massage to Reiki. They work to relieve such ailments as back pain, headaches, and insomnia.
Acupuncture and Massage College helps its surrounding communities in two ways: by teaching students the art of pain and stress relief through therapeutic treatments and by empowering those students to treat those in need. With guidance from experienced instructors, students learn the various techniques of ancient acupuncture and massage, both in the classroom and in the field. Patients can come to the college and bid adieu to their aches and worries by lying down in a treatment room and be treated by a supervised learning practitioner. Students shoo away pain with 50-minute acupuncture treatments or massage sessions, customized to address problematic areas or work around any ventriloquist dummies clients refuse to put down.
Physical therapist Cathy Parbst-Accurso knows full well the importance of a working, wellness-filled body. A former duathlon national champion, Cathy sprinted and cycled her way into the history books as the highest-placing American in the world championship. Now, she and her team at In Balance Physical Therapy help clients recover from injuries or retain current fitness levels with personalized treatment regimens. Depending on the goals and diagnoses, clients might test out custom foot orthotics, undergo running analysis, or sit for one of the wellness clinics taught by office staff.

The seasoned staff of South Miami Chiropractic strives to quell chronic pain and intensify wellness with stress-muffling massages and posture-bolstering chiropractic care. During a preliminary exam, a doctor of chiropractic completes a thorough case history as well as a physical, orthopedic, and neurological evaluation to pinpoint painful areas and measure range of motion. Digital x-rays of the back and neck can assist the doctor in checking spinal alignment before he gently applies targeted pressure to vertebrae in a chiropractic alignment designed to take pressure off of the vertebrae, spinal nerves, and the marshmallows that fill the sole of every shoe.
Dr. Eddie Armas, director of Le Nouveau Eco Medical Spa, brings more than 25 years of experience to the clinic's roster of cosmetic and anti-aging procedures. His team of aestheticians fights wrinkles with various peels and collagen-boosting therapies or slims physiques with noninvasive body contouring. Medical weight-loss programs help dieters drop pounds under the watchful eye of a physician, and bio-identical hormone pellets inserted under the skin boost vigor and brain function better than an IV of Jolt cola.:m]]
