Rona Younos received her Masters of Acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia Institute) in Laurel, MD. She studied Five Element Acupuncture which is an acupuncture practice rooted in one of the oldest and most classical acupuncture styles. She is nationally board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a Diplomat of Acupuncture.
She practiced as a licensed acupuncturist in both private practice, and at an addiction recovery center in Virginia before she relocated with her family to South Florida in July of 2013. To fulfill Florida requirements to practice Chinese medicine, Rona went back to school and received another degree.
In August of 2014, Rona received her Master’s in Oriental Medicine from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In addition to taking all of the Chinese herbal medicine classes, she also completed coursework in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes modalities such as cupping; Japanese and scalp acupuncture, acupuncture esthetics, food therapy, gynecology, internal diseases, homeopathy, and injection therapy.
Rona is also certified as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist. This certification specializes in treating trauma survivors and anyone recovering from an addiction. She is also a certified Reiki practitioner, and often incorporates Reiki into her acupuncture sessions, finding it to magnify the healing that takes place.
Rona greatly enjoys working with people of all backgrounds; she believes that our individual life story is integral to our unique healing journey. She assists her patients to become empowered by their personal healing process, to live pain and dis-ease free, and to start creating the life that they desire. She works towards having her patients feel strong, grounded, and whole within themselves, and also with being themselves within the world. Rona has extensive training in and experience to distinguish whether to treat her patient on a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual level. She aims to be present and listen deeply to her patients, and allows this to guide her to a personalized plan of treatment.
My goal is to meet you with compassion and in partnership, wherever you are on your own personal path to healing; striving to have you feel vibrant and well in body, mind, and spirit, so that you may reach your fullest potential.
I received acupuncture treatments from Rona Younos. I had pain in my left upper arm, and I was not able to raise my arm. I couldn’t even pull up the blanket when I was lying in bed because of the sharp pain. After just a couple of treatments, my arm felt lighter, the pain was gone, I was able to raise my arm, and eventually I was able to use it completely normally again.
Rona explained her treatments to me, and was very kind, and understanding. I felt comfortable with her and felt that I could really trust in her as my acupuncturist. I am happy I decided to go see Rona for acupuncture treatments.
I have met Rona when seeking an acupuncturist. She took care of my needs and paid attention to every detail. She not only cured my pain, but she also healed my soul. She is a wonderful person and is connected to God. Her methods were efficient. She treats her patients as if she has known them for a long time. She is a highly effective acupuncturist.
I went to see Rona when it was a time in my life where I was going through many transitions which I allowed to knock me off of my equilibrium. I had ended a serious relationship, and moved to a town where I knew no one, which didn’t help with my feelings of loneliness and sadness. I knew before the treatment that Rona would be the best practitioner for me because of her ease and encouragement with her words outside of the treatment room. I had no idea how powerful the experience would be given Rona’s gentle nature, powerful affirmations, and good intention coupled with the treatment of the needles themselves. She helped me believe in my own self worth and beauty. After each treatment I felt more and more like my old self. I became my vibrant, happy self again. To this day, I search for a practitioner like Rona. Someone who can treat me with no judgment. Someone who I trust completely.
My life completely changed for the better after going to see Rona. I initially went to her because of my painful periods and fatigue. Not only did I stop having painful periods, and an increase in my energy level, I began to uncover and recover from deeper wounds that I had buried. I felt freer, like a huge weight had been lifted. I started enjoying life in a way I didn’t know was possible. I am so grateful for how Rona has helped me! She is a lovely, gentle, and highly intuitive acupuncturist.
