Acupuncture in Fort Lauderdale, FL

“If you live a balanced life you will find joy in almost everything you do. Happiness can only be achieved if there is a balance between the physical, the mental, the spiritual and the emotional.”

Danielle DeFreitas,OMD-Danielle DeFreitas is a Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor. Trained in the US and Asia she has learned cultural differences in eastern and western ways of thinking.

The cultural exchange of habits and practices has helped her understand the importance of a balanced lifestyle. She is proud of these experiences because they’ve taught her that happiness originates from the inside and not from external resources.

The story of DeFreitas serves as a personal testament to the benefits of acupuncture, something that dissipated the sadness and depression felt after moving alone from the Lehigh Valley to South Florida. Her apartment happened to be across the street from an Oriental Medicine school, which peaked her interest in the practice she knew nothing about. After receiving a few treatments she was hooked, enrolled in the program and became a traditional Chinese medicine doctor. The medicinal practices she learned calmed and balanced her like nothing else.

DeFreitas observed during her residency at different hospitals in China and South Korea that the integrated approach of TCM and western medicine enhances the capacity for healing. TCM Wellness Project aims to spread the awareness of how traditional Chinese medicine can work in conjunction with western medicine as part of a unified team rather than a competition.
