Welcome to Gainesville Acupuncture & Holistic Medicine

Acupuncture is a system of medicine that has stood the test of time for over 2,500 years, and has successfully passed the scrutiny of modern scientific research.

In 2003, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a review of clinical trials of acupuncture, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials

As a result of this publication, the WHO recognizes 28 diseases, symptoms, or conditions for which acupuncture has been proven to be an effective form of treatment.

Clients share their experience

"I tore my hamstring and had been suffering with pain for over a year. I was going to PT and chiropractor for months with minimal relief. Added in Acupuncture & Holistic Medicine and 3 months later I was discharged almost completely pain free! Great experience. Would definitely recommend."
Brittany H.
"Mr. Alvaro Toledo has treated me for sciatica disorder with extreme success. I also suffer from scoliosis of the spine. His expertise and professionalism in the field of acupuncture have been a blessing. Thanks to him I’ve been able to live like a normal functioning human being. I will seek his services wherever he is. I highly recommend him based on my successful experience."
Carlos C.
"Dr. Alvaro really cares about the patient's healing experience. He referred me for a blood panel with my doctor that revealed I had a genetic disorder for B12 absorption, which was the underlying cause of many of my muscle tightness issues. Dr. Alvaro is very knowledgeable and is up on the latest medical information. I highly recommend him."

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have insurance, bring your card on the first visit in order to find out if your policy covers any of the treatment modalities offered.

In short, it enhances and regulates your body’s own restorative abilities. For an in depth view on  how Acupuncture works, please read this article that presents both traditional and modern views.

Chinese herbal formulas are specially formulated combinations of traditional herbs that are intended to compliment acupuncture treatments for most conditions. The herbs are sourced from certified facilities that follow strict quality control and check for pesticides, heavy metals, and bacteria.

During your visit, I will perform a thorough intake consisting of assessment of chief complaints, review of health history, and pulse diagnosis.  This will be followed by the development and implementation of a customized treatment plan.

50 – 55 minutes for both new and returning patient visits
25 – 30 minutes for a simple stress buster treatment

In general, patients should start to feel the benefits from Acupuncture in 2-3 treatments. Some longstanding chronic conditions may take more treatments.

Typically, patients are treated once a week. If the condition is acute and painful, more frequent treatments may be necessary for the first few weeks.

Acupuncture needles are rarely described as painful, and can be quickly adjusted if the patient experiences discomfort.
