Dr. Guan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Guan "Dr. Weiwei Guan is Gainesville's leading physical therapist and acupuncturist who helps people over 50 to become more mobile and energetic so they can work hard and play harder, without pain medication, injections, or surgery. She founded Guan Physical Therapy and Acupuncture because she wanted to provide the best and safest non-surgical solutions to patients suffering from chronic pains and discomforts in Gainesville. These patients would benefit from the uniquely comprehensive approaches that are not provided by any other clinics in Gainesville. Getting the perfect combination of physical therapy, acupuncture, and Chinese herbal medicine, many of her patients responded better than the treatments that they had received before. The other reason that Weiwei started her own clinic was to continue her family's legacy. She is the fifth generation of a prominent family of physicians that is well known in China for their special acupuncture techniques. Her father, Professor Zunhui Guan, is an orthopedic physician who practices acupuncture. He is one of China's ten best acupuncturists, as ranked by China's official national agency, State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has published 12 well-received acupuncture books. Her only sibling, the older brother, has become a successful general surgeon and seemingly has given up on the family tradition. It is up to Weiwei alone to keep the family legacy going and she is honored to take on the task. Weiwei graduated with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from University of Florida in 2011. Then she completed the Orthopedic Rehab Residency at Shands Hospital where she was intensively trained by the best physical therapists. She continued working at Shands and another PT clinic for a few years, until she finally decided to start her own practice on the road less traveled to provide patients with the unique and comprehensive solutions. Florida Licenses: Physical Therapist (No.26628), Acupuncturist (No 3943). Education Background Born and raised in China, Weiwei moved to Florida to attend college. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science from University of South Florida in 2006, she moved to Gainesville in 2007 to attend the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at University of Florida. She fell in love with Gainesville and has called Gainesville home since. Though she had apprenticed under her father, to qualify for the acupuncturist license in the US, she attended and graduated from the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture with a Master of Acupuncture. She is nationally board certified as Diplomat of Oriental Medicine. Unparalleled Knowledge Her unique background has granted her an unparalleled knowledge base. It is unlikely any other acupuncturist could have had the intensive anatomy training that she's had. She has progressively taken year-long anatomy lab three times: in college, in graduate school, and during the residency. Through these training programs, she gained enormous knowledge on human bodies. She knows precisely where the needles should go, and more importantly, where the needles should not go. A published Author During the three-year apprenticeship under her father, she not only learned from the master himself like other apprentices of his but also had the opportunity to inherit the real jewels from his 50 years' clinical experience. Cooperating with her father and previous apprentices, Weiwei has published 5 acupuncture books, 3 of them by China's top medical publisher, People's Medical Publishing House. She also served as the reviewer for the first set of Clinical Guidelines that was published in China by the Orthopedic Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. "
