Dr. Ivan Figueroa-OteroIvan Figueroa-Otero, MD, focuses his holistic medicine practice in the use of medical acupuncture treatments, as developed in Traditional Chinese Medicine. He uses needles and laser acupuncture for kids and adults alike in the San Juan, Puerto Rico area.

His goal is to help patients in their search for total balance, in order to achieve physical, mental & spiritual wellness. This in turn stimulates the reprogramming of their lifestyles, nutrition habits and stress control skills.
Healing from the Inside Out
Eastern medical therapies have been around for thousands of years. About one-third of adult Americans use alternative treatments to treat medical conditions.

Combining therapies helps treat the whole person.

As a patient, it’s important not to develop a co-dependent relationship with your provider. You are your own healthcare advocate. You live in your body every day. Speak up and tell your doctor what you’re experiencing. Find a practitioner who understands you.

Align your intentions with your healing. Forgive yourself and eliminate guilt.

Listen as Dr. Ivan Figueroa-Otero joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss how to combine techniques to reduce your pain and improve your healing.
