From her MySpace Site

"My name is Becky Rubright and the State of Florida recognizes me as an Acupuncture Physician. I have a Masters of Traditional Oriental Medicine from Emperor's College in Santa Monica, CA. I have been practicing Chinese Medicine in Apollo Beach for the last 4 years and have recently relocated my clinic to Tampa, in the Seminole Heights area near MLK Blvd. and the 275 Freeway."

"Living Harmony is open Tuesday thru Saturday by appointment. I have evening hours because I understand people have jobs. "

"While I provide treatments using Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, I also feel that providing a soothing space where you feel apart from the rest of the world is vital as well... We all need time to nourish our connection to what is important to us... Aromatherapy and Reflexology are also part of all treatments and usually deepen most people's relaxation and therapy... Since August 2002 I have assisted people's self-healing in the relief of numerous ailments, such as...Migraines and Headaches Anxiety Depression Sciatica Allergies Menopause Asthma Low Back Pain Neck Pain Irritable Bowels Insomnia PMS and Painful Periods Infertility Endometriosis Arthritis Digestive Issues Rehabiliation, especially after Surgery..and it goes on... unless you need emergency medicine, you should be looking at alternatives..."

Thank you David! Such a pleasant surprise indeed! Obviously you have strong feelings about supporting this area and I'm thrilled to have found a forum for a community that really gets the idea of the word. We're all just people and our interconnectedness is a resource and a blessing. Anyone one interested in what I do should feel free to contact me at 813-892-6909. I saw a sign the other day that summed it up perfectly for me - I love to help. I need to give.

love and peace ~ Becky

Clarification: The State of Florida lists her license as LICENSED ACUPUNCTURIST. Physician is not part of it! Finally SH has a licensed QUACK!

Dear Anonymous Person,

The State of Florida actually uses both designations - L.Ac. for Licensed Acupuncturist AND A.P. for Acupuncture Physician. It is regrettable that the confusion of having both titles results in mistaken judgements. I have no idea what a quack means to you but the State of Florida apparently feels that my National Certification and Master's Degree in a thousands of years old system of health care is sufficient evidence of my qualifications. I ask you, anonymous person, to stop by, talk to me, and with an open mind, perhaps learn something new.

Becky's degree is from a well-respected school of Chinese Medicine. I would prefer to go to her than an MD who took a 6 week course in acupuncture to get the license and to keep us from going to someone who really understands Chinese Medicine.

Becky said...

Thank you, Bungalowlady! You make an excellent point in that many states allow MD's and Chiropractors to perform what I call "cookbook" acupuncture. They take a couple weekend class and learn a handful of points to use when presented with specific problems. While this may work in an immediate sense, you are definitely not benefitting from the same knowledge that someone who studied Chinese Medicine for 4 years has received. Not to mention the experience that comes from actually practicing this form of medicine, solely, in a clinic for another 4 years.

very good blogger site!.

Do you know BBC News (14/09/2006) Acupuncture for low back pain is cost-effective and works, according to medical researchers. Two studies on suggest a short course of acupuncture would benefit patients and healthcare providersThe cost is well below the threshold used by officials to decide whether the NHS can afford to fund a set treatment, they said. Up to 80% of UK residents experience back pain at some point in their lives, costing the NHS £480m a year.—(BBC News 14/09/2006)

And, What do you think about it? Something as follow:

Chinese acupuncture practitioner had almost been accused for website’s ads in Bristol

Dr Zhentong Han is a Chinese registered acupuncturist with twenty years of clinical experience. He is very popular among the patients in the area with outstanding technique. The appointments for him in the clinic in Bradford were always full, however, at Bristol, another place where he set up his business; there were troubles from the competitions in the same field.

It started at the acupunctural website of Dr Han(, which occupied the NO.1 place in a international websites about acupuncture ( Because of the large number of patients attracted by this website which introduced traditional Chinese acupuncture for backache therapy,and top position in yahoo and google. it caught great attention of other businesses in the same field in a very short time. Some practitioner even registered company names using key words about acupuncture , and notified Dr Han and other practitioners to stop using the some key words for advertising the website. Or else they would probably be charged by the law.

Dr Han claimed that he regretted deeply for the matter, but he didn’t want to get involved in this legal dispute, for the purpose of having a website is not to score high on the network, but to have more patients understand the most veracious Chinese traditional acupunctural techniques through his website, so to help more patients get rid of the pain.
