Dr. Weiwei Guan
Doctor of Physical Therapy, University of Florida, 2011
Orthopedic PT residency, Shands OSMI, 2012
Fifth Generation of The Guan Family – China’s Top Acupuncture Specialists Family
Nationally Board Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine
Licensed Physical Therapist
Serving North-Central Florida since 2011
Time-Proven Effective Treatments Rooted in Five Generations
Dr. Weiwei Guan has been trained with the knowledge and experience obtained from treating hundreds of thousands of patients by five generations of Drs. Guan in more than 130 years. Her great-great-grandfather started practicing acupuncture in the 1880’s. Since then every generation of the Drs. Guan contributed to the family legacy. Her grandfather was the co-founder of China’s first national acupuncture association and the editor of China’s first acupuncture journal. Her father is one of China’s most famous acupuncture physicians. Acupuncturists around the world have gone to China to study under him. Guan Special Acupuncture is officially ranked among China’s Top 7 schools of acupuncture practice. Their techniques are included in many textbooks and are highly effective in treating sciatica, especially the ones with numbness and tingling in their legs. About 7 out 10 sciatica patients have noticeable improvements in 5-6 sessions.
Better Results From Combined Physical Therapy and Acupuncture
If it is suitable to your condition, you will get the benefits of combination treatment from a leading expert in providing integrated solution to sciatica. While acupuncture is better at controlling inflammation and pain, stimulating the recovery of nerves, and treating non-musculoskeletal problems, physical therapy is better at improving strength, range of motion, endurance and coordination. After graduating with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from University of Florida, Dr. Guan completed orthopedic physical therapy residency at UF Shands Orthopedic and Sport Medicine Institute, where she received intensive training in treating various muscoloskeletal conditions. She has helped many patients with physical therapy since 2011.
Smooth Communication with Family physicians, Surgeons and Other Specialists
Dr. Weiwei Guan has worked at Shands Hospital for years after graduating from UF with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. She “speaks the same language” as other health professionals so there is little chance of miscommunication. Patients and their healthcare provided can easily communicate with Dr. Guan as they would with any other providers in the Western medicine system, and not have to worry about culture barriers.
Highest Level of Patient Safety
Very few other acupuncturists, if any, has had the intensive anatomy training that our acupuncturist in Gainesville, Dr. Weiwei Guan, obtained through her education in the Western medicine system. She went through a total of 36 months of anatomy training in college, graduate school and residency, working on real cadavers, as part of her Doctor of Physical Therapy training. No acupuncture school in the whole world offers this type of training. She knows where to insert the needles and, more importantly, where not to, ensuring the safety of her patients. Each patient has their own treatment room that is equipped with the state of art air purifier that filters out droplets and uses UV to disinfect germs and virus.
Why are we different from all other PT clinics?
- 100% One-on-One time with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. You will NEVER be passed to aides, students or assistants. You want an expert, you get an expert, not an assistant.
- Personalized treatment plans. Since we do not use aides or assistants at our clinic, there is no cookie cutter programs for them to follow. We will tailor the plan of care to your specific needs and can adjust it at every session as needed.
- FREE 20-minute Discovery Visit with Dr. Weiwei Guan, who is the leading expert in deciding if you could benefit from physical therapy, acupuncture, both, or neither.
- Focus on hands-on treatments. You do not want to see a PT and just spend 30-40 minutes on exercises though you know they are important. We will ensure that you know how to do the appropriate exercise at home, while focusing on hands-on treatments.
- Combined Physical Therapy and Acupuncture. If it is suitable to your condition, you will get the benefits of combination treatment from a leading expert in providing integrated solution to musculoskeletal problems.

Look what others say about the specialty treatments from Guan Physical Therapy and Acupuncture
Stephen Anton, Gainesville, FL
Suffered from Knee and Hip 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.”
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.”
Sheila Inniss, 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.”
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!”
Michele Thomas, Gainesville, FL
Suffered From Shoulder Pain
“I highly recommend Dr. Guan as a knowledgeable, skilled and caring doctor of Physical Therapy and Accupunture. 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.”
