Philosphy & Staff
Our Center has been serving the South Florida community for over 30 years, with an emphasis on a rather unique form of healthcare. We find that the integration of western and oriental medicine, homeopathics, as well as other modalities truly enhances good health care and well-being.

As described by Hippocrates in the 4th century B.C., our goal is to practice and prescribe to the best of our ability for the good of our patients. We feel that we are able to accomplish this while minimizing common side effects.

Traditional Chinese Medicine
The concept of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which dates back almost 2,500 years, consists of re-establishing balance and harmony within the body. In order to accomplish this, TCM practitioners meet with the patient and obtain a complete history for a proper evaluation of his/her condition. By doing this, we get a better understanding of his/her needs and thus establishing an appropriate plan of treatment.

The TCM methods used in our center are as follows:
Acupuncture - the insertion of very fine needles, which are barely perceptible, and are places on very specific body points in order to enhance the body's functions. Sometimes gentle electric stimulation is used in conjunction with acupuncture.
Chinese Herbal Medicine - custom remedies are prepared and tailored for each individual patient, based on diagnosis of patterns, using signs and symptoms that reflect a certain imbalance.
Cupping - an ancient method of stimulating specific points of areas by creating suction with the use of glass jars, thus provoking better circulation, and better health.
Dietary Advice & Exercise - an important aspect of a truly integral plan is to advise patients on dietary issues and physical activity in order to enhance good health.
Massage - several types of massage are offered in our center, such as Shiatsu, whose purpose is to stimulate circulation. The release of toxins, relieve tension, and stimulate hormonal and immune systems.
Moxabustion - this TCM method involves the application of heat by burning moxa leaves to specific body areas in order to move 'qi' and treat specific dis-harmonies.

Homeopathy
Homeopathy – a system of medicine founded in the 19th Century in Germany, based on several principles including the Law of Similars which states that a disease is treated by a medicine that creates symptoms similar to those that the patient is experiencing.
Homotoxicology – a system of medicine first developed by Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg which understands that illnesses are the bodies defense against toxic substances that threaten the inter-cellular matrix, and provoke an imbalance.
Much in the way of Chinese herbal medicine, we are able to formulate and treat patients on an individual basis.
Bio
Dr. Juan Jimenez uses the AcuGraph® Digital Meridian Imaging™ system as part of an integrated approach to your healthcare.


The AcuGraph® Digital Meridian Imaging™ is a computerized tool used to analyze and document the energetic status of the acupuncture meridians. Dr. Jimenez can use the system to conduct a short two minute exam.

Acupuncture meridians are invisible energy pathways in your body that have been used therapeutically for over 5,000 years. These meridians conduct life-force energy, or Qi ("chee") in and around all the parts of your body. Blockage or interference in these pathways can result in imbalances that may contribute to negative health conditions. The primary goal of acupuncture treatment is to restore balance and proper energy flow to these pathways, thus allowing your body function normally and return to health naturally.

The AcuGraph system allows Dr. Jimenez to measure and analyze the energy balance of each acupuncture meridian. With this information, he can make better-informed decisions about your condition, and provide the best treatment possible.
