More Information

Living Room Acupuncture opened it’s doors in 2011 to served the needs of Downtown Miami residents and workers.  The clinic was founded by Rafael Perez, a native of Miami Florida. The clinic was designed to be an oasis of tranquility within the hustle and bustle of the city. The goal of the clinic is to engage the natural healing ability within each client using ancient and modern healing techniques.

Painless needles are inserted throughout the body to help activate the natural healing response.
BodyTalk is an astonishingly simple and effective holistic therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended. Each system, cell, and atom is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, however, these lines of communication can become compromised or disconnected, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being.
Chinese Herbal Medicine can greatly enhance the effects of Acupuncture, especially in the treatment of chronic disease where daily therapy is crucial to achieving significant and lasting relief. Chinese herbs are from plant, mineral and animal sources and contain no drugs.  The traditional formulas have been refine through thousands of years of use and are designed to be effective and safe.
