Giving us a warm welcome to wellness is Traci Pettigrew the owner and Acupuncture Physician here at Gainesville Holistic Healthcare. So
Traci give us a little round about of what you do. Holistic healthcare is an approach that we take, were we really deal with the whole body and the mind together. So that we can achieve maximum results and help people develop lifestyles conducive to whole body wellness. Well it sounds like you offer a lot of treatment options. We do, there’s a variety of treatment
options here, the centerpiece is acupuncture. Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Acupuncture works great for pain, it also works online on internal medicine disorders so a lot of gastric upsets. It treats cardiac issues like hypertension or high cholesterol, or arrhythmia. It treats women’s health issues like menopause and irregular menses. So another thing that we treat a lot is auto immune conditions, and this might look like fibromyalgia or IBS is a big one, hashimotos. It treats mental emotional disorders, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and we get good results. What I want people to know is that in the needles are very very small, about the thickness of a human hair. The needles are all single use sterile, disposable. It’s pain free, it’s effective, it’s safe. You offer other treatments that people might not think about. We do electric acupuncture. We run some alternating current through the needles. It’s painless, you feel like a mild pulsing sensation. It really does a good job treating joint pain. And we also do cupping, that’s great for sore muscles, and for chronic and acute pain. We do a technique called Gua Sha. some people notice the gaston technique.
That really gets the blood circulating and it decreases inflammation. So one of the really great benefits about utilizing acupuncture, and some of these other modalities it helps
people get off their pain medication. I can offer you an alternative. yeah you’re truly
improving people’s lifestyles. My name is Caitlyn and I provide massage therapy against
Holistic healthcare. Massage therapy can help with chronic pain, it can help your recovery from injury. With headaches, for relaxing and decreasing stress. Table massage is a more traditional massage, and it uses a lot of oils and it’s very specific. Thai massage is done on a comfortable mat on the floor. You’re fully closed and it uses compression and stretching techniques to bring the body back into balance. The treatments I’ve had here and experiences I’ve had have been amazing. When I came here my pain was probably at a 9 and now today I am walking in heels and at level probably 2. It really is about individual unique treatment here. Traci really listens to what I had to
say, whether was acupuncture cupping, Thai massage the gains I made in my health were just really incredible. You also do injection therapy. I have a special certification that allows me to inject certain substances. Those include B-12 which is great for mood, it’s great for
energy, for cognition. We also do injections for pain, for muscle spasms, for joint pain,
for inflammation. Another thing we do is a like a lipotropic injection. It really helps stimulate the body to burn fat, that can be a great compliment to a healthy diet and exercise routine. Tell
me about moxa. So we use it to warm the joints, increase blood flow, and reduce inflammation, and it’s also great for menstruation, cramps and gastrointestinal distress. They also offer
supplements and herbal medicine. Everything is sourced to make sure that it’s the highest quality. We have Chinese herbs with patent herbal formulas. Those are used to treat a
variety of conditions, they’re pills so they’re easy to take. We also do a full line of supplements, vitamins minerals, everything from melatonin to vitamin C. I absolutely would recommend Gainesville holistic health care to others. The care that I’ve gotten here has been exceptional. Tracy does a really really good job of making sure that not only you feel comfortable but you understand the care that you’re getting. Now what makes you different. From the minute you walk in the door you’ll notice it’s different from regular doctor’s office. There’s soothing music, there’s tea, so that we can create just a calm, relaxing environment. We really
emphasize communication between the practitioner and the patient. I spend a half an hour to an hour and a half with every patient every time they come in. And so we really work hard to educate people so that they understand and empower themselves. Well if you’re ready to unlock your body’s full potential and make a new partner in health, come to Gainesville holistic healthcare.
