Look what others say about the specialty treatments from Guan Physical Therapy and Acupuncture
Pilar Doran, Gainesville, FL
Suffered from Neck and Shoulder Pain
“I’ve had a wonderful experience as a new patient of Dr. Guan’s. During my initial two sessions in her beautiful new facility, Dr. Guan has spent adequate time assessing and discussing my symptoms and developing a holistic treatment plan that combines her comprehensive expertise in the areas of physical therapy, acupuncture and herbal medicine. It’s impressive to get my first acupuncture treatments (which were not painful at all and very relaxing) from a 5th generation Chinese medicine expert – what a heritage!
Her practice is equipped with state of the art equipment that is used in her treatment approach, which has proven to be unique and highly effect. For my neck and upper back problems, the neck stretching machine is outstanding! Her treatments have made a huge difference! I highly recommend Dr. Guan!”
Gail Basker, Gainesville, FL
Suffered from Low Back and Hip Pain
“I couldn’t step up on a sidewalk without pain in my right hip. I went to the Orthopedics and I was told I had sciatic and should wear a back belt and take Aleve twice a day. Wei Wei was recommended by some friends and she said you have one leg longer than the other. She did some physical therapy and accupuncture. After 2 sessions the sharp pain was gone. She is very good. “
Josephine Pelham, Treton, FL
Suffered From Shoulder Pain
“Dr. Guan is such a caring person and has helped relieve my severe shoulder pain. I had never tried acupuncture, but before undergoing surgery, thought I would give it a chance. It is not painful and she explains what she is doing and how it is helping. Highly recommend!“
Stephen Anton, Gainesville, FL
Hip and Knee Pain
“I love the comprehensive approach that Dr. Guan takes to treating muscle and joint issues. I’ve never met someone who has her unique background with training and degrees in both acupuncture and physical therapy. Because of this, she is able to integrate acupuncture, as well as light and heat therapy, with more traditional physical therapy treatment approaches. Based on my experience during the past six weeks, this comprehensive treatment approach is truly effective and has helped me regain mobility in my knees and hips. As an added benefit, Dr. Guan has a great personality, which makes the whole experience fun as well.”
Sheila Inniss, late 60s, Gainesville, FL
Suffered from knee pain and gastrointestinal reflux
“I recently had a total knee replacement and suffered with gastrointestinal reflux for many years. Under her care with both needles and herbs, I am happy to report that my reflux has disappeared, and I no longer take the herbs. Also, the needles were instrumental in relieving pains associated with arthritis and post knee surgery.
Dr Guan is very amiable but professional. I felt very comfortable in her presence and looked forward to our sessions, anticipating relief from my pains. I will continue to seek her help and have recommended her to several friends who now share my high opinion of her. “
Michele Thomas, Gainesville, FL
“I highly recommend Dr. Guan as a knowledgeable, skilled and caring doctor of Physical Therapy and Acupuncture. Her one on one, hands on approach to patient care has greatly aided in the process of healing my shoulder. Our community is fortunate to have her practicing here.”
Dr. Weiwei Guan
Doctor of Physical Therapy from University of Florida
Nationally Board Certified Oriental Medicine Diplomat
Licensed Physical Therapist
Fifth-Generation Practitioner of China’s Top Ranked Guan’s Special Acupuncture Techniques
I am a UF-educated/Shands-trained Doctor of Physical Therapy and have practiced in Gainesville since 2011. I am also the fifth-generation of a China’s top acupuncture family that is renowned for our special acupuncture techniques. The Guan techniques are included in many acupuncture textbooks.
One of my specialties is treating musculoskeletal problems by combining acupuncture and physical therapy techniques. People tend to respond better to the combined treatments than a single type of treatment. I have had the intensive training during my orthopedic physical therapy residency at UF Health Orthopedic and Sport Medicine Institute. With the hands-on physical therapy techniques such as joint mobilization, muscle energy, myofascia release, therapeutic exercises, and combining them with acupuncture, I have successfully treated many patients with chronic joint pain, such as back pain, neck/shoulder pain, knee pain, hip pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, hand/finger pain, etc.
In addition to treating musculoskeletal problems, as an Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Physician, I have also helped many people who need help in these areas: digestive system, women’s health, stress-related problems and certain neurological problems (peripheral nerve damages).
