I am a family physician and have practiced in South Miami for 30 years. I have been treated by Vivian for the past 2 years. I first sought help to achieve a better mind-body balance and to lessen free-floating feelings of stress and consciously replace them with feelings of gratitude for my bountiful life. I felt there was a connection missing and I thought acupuncture could be of benefit. Under Vivian’s calm and steadfast direction I have made remarkable progress in achieving a better balance and in relieving some of the accompanying symptoms I had been experiencing. I recommend acupuncture as a complement to traditional western care as there is much to be gleaned. Once you honestly reckon with your condition and state of being, acupuncture can be a full-body method of effecting a positive change of direction and focus.
