A note from your clinician...
I was first introduced to acupuncture as a patient seeking relief from chronic migraines. I was amazed when after just two months and a couple of simple diet changes, not only did my migraines go away but my menstrual cycle was regulated and healed. In the western medicine world, I was told that I had to live with the health issues that I had and that was just how my body was wired - not true! My body was hurting and needed to be heard. Because of this great healing experience that Eastern Medicine gifted me, I set out to do the same for others and so here I am today.

Covyn Montemayor, LAc, DOM
Licensed Acupuncturist AP3819
Diplomat of Oriental Medicine Certification
Acu-point Injection Therapy Certification
Trauma-Focused Specialty & Care
Member of the Florida State Oriental Medical Association

Biography
As an acupuncture physician with an educational background in East Asian medicine, Dr Covyn Montemayor utilizes a variety of therapies including: cupping therapy, herbal medicine, moxibustion (infra-red thermal therapy), nutritional counseling, and lifestyle/habit coaching to help restore ease and function to the mind and body.

A driving factor to inspiring her to study acupuncture and herbal medicine was a focus on integrating the body, mind, and spirit into a more holistic, "treating the whole person" understanding of health.

Her studies at Florida College of Integrative Medicine acted as a catalyst to practice evidence based, integrative medicine. Currently she teaches diagnostic techniques, acupuncture, and food therapy at her alma mater.

Her care for the individuals she works with propels her to continue learning evidence based acupuncture and herbal medicine. As a student she began learning a unique form of diagnosis and immediately fell in love. She uses this style of diagnosis, called Hara diagnosis, with almost everyone she works with. This is a palpation based style and gives guidance for the practitioner as well as the patient. Her specialties are with scar treatments, sleep disorders, women’s health, and mental/emotional health.

A note from your clinician...
I am passionate about bringing a well rounded perspective of health to the people I work with. My practice is focused on helping people pursue their own health and wellness in the least invasive, most functional ways that they can. I believe we all have unique bodies and life experiences; therefore we need unique methods of healthcare. I believe in a ‘less is more’ style of practice in every way. My lifestyle counseling and nutritional counseling is founded in a mentality that the best approach for you is the one that you will actually do! To that end, I work with people at their own pace. My passion is to bring integrative medical practices into the daily lives of every person I work with. Determining the best route for your healthcare can be confusing and discouraging when presented with so many options. My goal is to bring clarity and direction to the people in my practice.

Licensed Acupuncturist AP3956
Diplomat of Oriental Medicine Certification
Certified in Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation
Certified in Electro-Acupuncture

Biography
After embarking on a healing journey as a type 1 diabetic in my late teenage years, I quickly realized that our world is less conducive to those of us committed to true healing.

I sought out alternative medicine in college and was impassioned by my life-changing results with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I learned from my own experience that the body is capable of healing itself. Sometimes, it just needs a little guidance in order to do so! 

Originally seeking out acupuncture for acne and digestive issues, the pleasant ‘side effects’ are what really changed my life. Anxiety became a thing of the past, I sleep better, I am no longer bloated all the time, my hormones stabilized…I actually had a ton of energy! My acupuncturist changed my whole life, and my experience with healing changed how I viewed life. 

After earning my Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in Miami, FL and interning at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I graduated as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncture Physician. My clinical experience includes gut health, autoimmune disorders, hormone imbalances, pain, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, migraines, and more. 

A note from your clinician...
I treat each and every patient with the same level of care and compassion as if they were my own grandma, parent, sibling, or child. I love whole-heartedly coming to work every day and I look forward to accompanying you on your wellness journey!

A note from your clinician...
My life's purpose is to make a difference. I want for people to know of the limitless healing benefits treatments based in a Holistic approach, such as with Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, have to offer.
The year I turned 20 I was diagnosed with Mesial Temporal Sclerosis with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. In plain English this means I was suffering from a rare kind of epilepsy and it was causing irreversible scarring on my brain. After many doctor's visits, countless tests and failed treatment plans with lots of medication that didn't work, my neurologist sat me down and told me I would "never beat this illness" and that eventually, my seizures would cause "irreversible brain damage". I dealt with this condition for 3 years without hope, I couldn't help but wonder if something else was possible. My first act of courage was the day I chose to open up and share with everyone I knew about my condition and I asked for help. Many ideas were offered, in fact, what I discovered was people wanted to contribute to me. Immediately, I made a list of all 87 suggestions my friends and family offered me and #7 on that list was Acupuncture. After over a decade of consistent treatments, unwavering determination and many disciplined lifestyle adjustments, I cay say, thankfully, that I am on my way to a seizure-free life!
During my healing process I have fallen in love with this medicine. The ability to empower our bodies to heal themselves of anything is truly inspiring and I have given my life to serve by creating the environment for healing within each person I treat.
I consider it a real privilege that I have been invited to join you on your journey to achieving the best health possible and I can't wait to take care of you.
