Sports and Orthopaedic Acupuncture of Saint Augustine
At Sports and Orthopaedic Acupuncture of Saint Augustine, our goal is to provide professional holistic health care and acupuncture services to the Saint Augustine and St. Johns County residents and businesses.
Meet The Practitioner:
My name is Fernando Bernall. I am a primary health care provider, according to the Florida Statute 457.102(2). I'm also Board Certified and a licensed practitioner of acupuncture. My current practice is in St. Augustine, Florida.
I'm a graduate of the prestigious Florida Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine and have completed post-graduate training in substance abuse at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in the Bronx, NY.
Here's what I do: I teach, coach, guide, and inspire my patients to incorporate into their lives a holistic approach to living that includes exercise, nutrition, and mind-body methods which will transform their current health condition into a vibrant and fulfilling state of being.
To help my patients, I draw from over 23 years of practice and study of Chinese medicine including acupuncture, herbal medicine, bodywork, and a lifetime of dedication to martial arts.
In my clinic, I treat a number of conditions ranging from sports injuries to anxiety. The main bulk of my practice is dealing with pain - acute and chronic in nature. 95% of the time, patients feel relief from pain immediately.
I also practice and teach Tai Chi. I think that Tai Chi is a wonderful system for structural integration, a healing art, and a powerful style of self-defense that should be embraced by anyone wishing to maintain health, and be fit from inside out, meaning the connective tissue, organs, and mental calmness.
I consider exercise to be the catalyst of all healing methods. In my experience, patients who exercise regularly a minimum of 3 times per week, heal much faster than those who do not.
To get to know me better, check out my Blog. You'll find out more on what I think about in relation to medicine, fitness, juicing and much more. It may give you a better idea of whether my work is a good fit for your needs.
I hope to be of help to you.
