Fiorenza Arigoni, AP
Arigoni was born in Switzerland in 1961. She immigrated to the US in 1993 and became a US
citizen in 1998. She graduated from the Florida Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine
in 1999 and the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy in 1993. She has been practicing
acupuncture and massage therapy since then, specializing in treatments for acute and chronic
pain, and gynecological problems. She offers treatments with just acupuncture or, to enhance
efficacy and obtain the best results, she combines both the acupuncture and massage therapy
in the same session.
Acupuncture is a healing technique dating back over 3,000 years. It is based
on the principle that energy is circulating in the body in channels or "meridians." When
there is pain or sickness, this energy (also known as "Chi") is blocked, deviated, or depleted.
The flow of Chi is restored by inserting hair-thin disposable sterile needles in various parts
of the body.
Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with moxibustion, cupping, Chinese herbs, and massage therapy.
It is very compatible with Western medical regimes. Acupuncture treatments are safe, painless and
effective for a wide variety of medical problems including:
Acute and chronic pain
Insomnia, stress, headaches and   depression
Nausea & fatigue associated with chemotherapy
Asthma, allergies, and viral diseases
Stop smoking and weight loss
Digestive and gynecological problems
Face rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction
