At Bernall's Acupuncture 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:
Welcome to my Practice!
My name is Fernando Bernall. I'm a Board Certified and licensed practitioner of acupuncture. My current acupuncture practice is in Saint Augustine, Florida.
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.
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.
I also practice and teach Tai Chi. I think that Tai Chi is a wonderful system of healing that should be embraced by anyone wishing to maintain health, and be an integral component of any rehabilitation program.
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.

They look like cannonballs with handles. They come in different “poods”; one pood being 16 kilograms or around 35+ pounds. The “Beast” weighs around 3 poods or 48kg = 106lbs; a real monster. They come from the Highlands of Scotland and a Russian dictionary dating back to 1704 calls them “girya”. We call them “Kettlebells”.
The term “Gong Fu” aka “Kung Fu”, can be roughly translated to: “skill acquired through practice”, and its general use in the West, which departs from the etymological meaning of the Chinese characters, is in reference to the martial arts. In the following, I will attempt to share with you some of my current views
In 2009, the first boomers turned 65 and every 8 seconds a boomer turns 50, making it the fastest growing demographic group in America currently numbering around 78 million strong. The Boomer Generation has come to age.
In this little video I share with you how I incorporate kettlebells into many of Tai chi’s sequences or postures.
