Dr. Yelena Pakula practiced as a medical doctor in Russia before changing fields and continents more than a decade ago. Now an acupuncturist licensed by the state of Florida, she runs Vita-Health Acupuncture & Wellness Center, a clinic for nonconventional healing and aesthetic medicine. She and her colleagues—including another expatriate physician from Brazil—perform acupuncture and herbal treatments, along with massage therapy and colon hydrotherapy. Their beauty menu includes treatments to laser away body hair, contour the thighs and stomach, and rejuvenate complexions after one too many ghost sightings.
