Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in the treatment of pain and injuries. It works to increase microcirculation, causes the body to release endorphins, and related biochemicals that naturally reduce pain. Fascia is a structure of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, binding some structures together, while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other. Research has shown that fascia is one large piece and where it overlaps and converges in the body is where acupuncture meridians and points lie. Fascia has also been shown to release an electrical charge when it is stretched. In chronic pain, the brain shunts blood flow to and from the affected area to protect itself from further harm. The sensory and motor nerves mistakenly keep firing even when there is no structurally related cause. Acupuncture conducts ion flow increasing microcirculation and sends a strong proprioceptive signal to the brain. This manipulation of descending control brings blood flow back to the area so that the body can heal itself. Acupuncture works by breaking the pain cycle.

Whether you are considering acupuncture treatment or just curious as to how it works, my web site should answer most basic questions. For all the rest, I am happy to help you.

When I first started seeing Monique for acupuncture treatment while going thru the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process, I was immediately impressed with both her knowledge and calming presence. During treatments, I was often struck by how much I could 'feel' - no pain from the needles but the actual sensation of energy moving through my body. My IVF treatments were successful and I am sure that the acupuncture played a role in how well that cycle went. At the end of the pregnancy, I once again sought out Monique's help in ensuring that I went into labor naturally and was able to avoid an induction and have a completely natural, med-free birth. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking alternative treatments and solutions! (AL, Orlando)

I was lucky enough to be referred to Monique Rogers by my chiropractor. I had developed a freak case of Bell's Palsy (where half your face doesn't work and droops down), and he told me I should go see her. I'm 26 years old, and it was flat out a scary situation. She was part of my support system I needed to make my Bell's Palsy get better in under 3 weeks. I not only felt more sensation in my face after each acupuncture session but it also helped with my back pain, and I slept amazing from it. Its truly the massage for people who don't like to be touched. (BB, Orlando)

I'm afraid of needles. I always have been. A wonderfully enlightening conversation with Monique informed me that acupuncture uses thin needles that you can barely feel. I have had numerous treatments from her for various conditions such as cold, foot discomfort and severe stress. I'm happy to report that everything is going well for me, and with her help, we plan to keep it that way. (AR, Orlando)

I approached Monique due to a bad case of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which was hindering my chances of conceiving. I was very apprehensive as I am not a fan of needles, but immediately felt at ease when I met Monique. Within four months of starting treatment, my periods were regular and much less painful. Now I am six months pregnant. I would recommend Monique to anyone who experienced the same problems as me. (MC, Orlando)
