Dr.Rachel Israel  DOM, AP, RYT-200

I have always known that I was meant to be a healer. I've been interested in health and wellness for as long as I can remember. At a young age I realized that most modern medical approaches did not align with my personal philosophies. The key to many of our modern health issues lies within the power of preventative medicine including nutrition, physical activity and health education. My journey into the world of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) began as a patient. After a series of treatments for pain and anxiety I felt a major shift in my well-being. I began to see my acupuncturist to treat all of my health issues and symptoms. I started reading some TCM books and and I was hooked- Chinese Medicine just made sense.


After graduating with my Bachelors from University of Central Florida, I applied to the Florida College of Integrative Medicine in my hometown Orlando. I developed skills in acupuncture, moxibustion, tui na massage, cupping, food therapy and herbal medicine treating over 300 patients in our student clinic.

I've had success in treating a variety of conditions including:

  • Pain

  • Anxiety 

  • Depression 

  • Acne

  • Headaches (migraine, tension & sinus)

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

  • Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (IBD)

  • Opioid addiction

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Fatigue

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Neuropathy

  • Infertility

  • Amenorrhea

  • Menstrual cramps

  • Premenstrual syndrome

  • Peptic ulcers

  • Constipation

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

I first tried acupuncture to relieve my chronic lower back pain and anxiety. After several treatments I began to feel more healthy and relaxed than ever. My vague digestive and hormonal symptoms began to clear up. I was sleeping better. I felt a dramatic improvement in my vitality and mindset. These experiences opened my eyes to the powerful healing philosophy of Chinese medicine.
