Acupuncture: Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese Healing Art form, Chinese Medicine dates back to about 1500 BC during the Shang dynasty. Acupuncture is only one facet of this dynamic medical system. The Chinese were able to map out channels known as meridians in the human body along which needles are applied for the purpose of achieving homeostasis and healing. Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of conditions including pain, acute and chronic illness, mental-emotional conditions and more.
Pain Treatments: Pain packages include a variety of noninvasive treatment modalities to address pain in a unique design for each individual patient’s needs. Modalities used include deep tissue massage, cupping, far infrared, NMF (Neural Myofascial) release, adjustments, trigger point, e-stim, and sine wave, and more.
Bio puncture: Bio puncture uses homeopathic medicines, which are injected into acupuncture and trigger points for the purpose of managing pain.
PIT (Perineuralprolo Injection Therapy): PIT uses a low concentration medical grade dextrose solution, which is injected along nerve pathways in order to address pain. The theory behind PIT is based on Hilton’s Law, “The nerve that innervates a joint also innervates the skin overlying that joint and the muscles that move that joint.”
Prolotherapy (proliferative therapy): Prolotherapy uses a high concentration medical grade dextrose solution, which is injected into joints for the purpose of reducing pain, regenerating soft tissue, and tightening ligaments. By stimulating an acute inflammatory response, cells of the immune system are recruited and concentrated in the injured area for advanced healing.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma): PRP uses the patient’s own plasma, which is injected into joints for the purpose of regenerating soft tissue and cartilage and reducing pain. The patient’s blood is drawn and spun down to separate out the red blood cells (RBCs). The plasma is drawn off the top and injected into the treatment area.
Amniotic Allograft: amniotic allograft is injected into joints for the purpose of reducing pain, and regenerating soft tissue, connective tissue, cartilage, and bone. Amniotic allograft is rich in cytokines and growth factors that stimulate the body’s own progenitor cells to regenerate and regrow tissue in damaged areas. These cells are pluripotent, meaning that they differentiate easily.
Microneedling face-lift: Microneedling uses a micro-needling pen, which is gently moved over the skin surface. This serves to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibers, which are responsible for the skins elasticity, suppleness, and youthful look. Hyaluronic acid, PRP, and/or amniotic allograft can be added to the skin’s surface during treatment for a synergistic effect and better result. Treatment areas include the face, neck and upper chest.
Hair Regrowth: PRP or liquid allograft is injected into areas of hair loss for the purpose of hair regrowth. Treatment areas include the scalp and eyebrows.
Botox: Botox uses very small amounts of botulinum toxin, which is injected into facial areas where wrinkles are troublesome. This is a safe and effective treatment that helps eliminate wrinkles by reducing muscle movement in the area for up to 12 weeks.
Scar Revision: amniotic allograft is injected into scar tissue for the purpose of removing unwanted scars and stretch marks.
PDO Thread Lift: a nonsurgical procedure ideal for mild to moderate skin changes using surgical grade threads inserted into the dermis layer of the skin with a needle. The PDO Threads lifts the skin and regenerates the collagen, while dissolving over a 3-6 month period. This procedure permanently lifts loose skin and smooths out wrinkles for a more youthful look.
Fillers: Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that offers volume to the skin. The aging process can cause loss of this volume, so by adding it back you can regain that youthful look you once had. Dr. Munoz uses Juvéderm, which has a long-lasting benefit without surgery. Completely safe and effective, over 90% of patients receive an HA dermal filler.
IV Therapy: IV therapy is the infusion of substances into the vein, and each IV is designed to address a specific health and wellness need. There are many benefits to IV therapy as we are able to reach every cell in the body and bring health and vitality back to the patient. IV therapy is used to address vitamin/mineral deficiencies, boost the immune system, balance electrolytes, hydration, and regenerate cellular damage just to name a few. By using IV therapy, the patient can benefit from its systemic health benefits.
Hormone modulation: Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers that send signals into the bloodstream and tissues. Hormones are responsible for many processes in the human body including growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, mood, lean body mass and much more. Hormones can become out of balance or decline for a number of reasons. By optimizing our hormone function we can feel and look better, as well as prevent a number of chronic diseases.
Gut healing: The majority of illness starts in the gut. Our gut consists of a microbiome, which consists of millions of microorganisms that work together keeping our hormone production and immune system functioning well. Our gut is also responsible for the exchange of nutrients. When our gut is inflamed these systems go awry causing a multitude of symptoms. By healing the gut, the body begins to run more smoothly and vitality returns.
Chronic disease: There are a number of reasons why patients become ill. As a result, no two patients will require the exact same treatment approach. Therefore Dr. Munoz looks at each patient as an individual and designs treatment according to what the patient needs. Dr. Munoz’ step-by-step process is ingenious in addressing the cause of disease and healing the body from the ground up.
