Claudia Rodriguez

Acupuncture Physician

Claudia received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the University of Javeriana in Colombia in 1990. While working in environmental sciences she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. At that time the only treatment available was corticosteroids, pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs. Those treats aggravated the situation, causing an ulcer and gastric problems, and did not resolved the illness. One year later she tried acupuncture and natural medicine. Alternative modalities healed the ulcer and gastric issues, reduced pain in the body and controlled the illness. From this experience, she became interested in natural health and alternative treatments to get to the root cause of health issues as her personal passion. Claudia is fluent in English and Spanish.

Claudia studied Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at Florida College of Integrative Medicine in Orlando, Florida where she graduated with a Master‘s degree in Oriental Medicine in 2015. Claudia believes that acupuncture and herbal medicine provide an alternative, and integrating treatment most effective and safe in many diseases.

Claudia specializes in facial rejuvenation, cosmetic acupuncture, pain management, mental emotional disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress syndrome, scars and Eastern Herbology.

Janine Margewicz

Acupuncture Physician

Janine, a Connecticut native, came to Central Florida in 1992 following high school. After a 10+ year career doing props and set decorating on feature films, TV series, and commercials, Janine decided to follow her other passion...holistic healthcare.

Following a minor car accident and having almost constant headaches for more than six weeks, receiving both chiropractic and regular massage therapy, she tried acupuncture. Only then did long-term relief happen. After just the first treatment, she was pain-free for two days; after the second treatment, the relief lasted over a week. At that point, Janine was a firm believer of acupuncture.

Janine studied Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at The Florida College of Integrative Medicine in Orlando. The program included 3000 rigorous hours of study consisting of 900 clinical hours, treating over 300 patients, and 2100 classroom hours. Janine graduated with a Master’s in Traditional Oriental Medicine in 2006, summa cum laude.

Janine is very passionate about her work, and has studied  since with many masters in Auricular Acupuncture, Scalp Acupuncture, Balance Method Acupuncture, I-Ching Acupuncture, Allergy Elimination Techniques, Laser (needle-less) Acupuncture, Acupoint Injection Therapy and NADA (Detox Treatments).

She is not only very professional, but is charismatic and personable. Janine will listen to not only your words, but also your body language, pulse, tongue, and overall disposition to get a whole picture of your health. She will instantly make you feel very comfortable and has even been known to make you laugh.
