Longevity Wellness, a division of Crane Health, is dedicated to providing excellent healthcare to the Sarasota and gulf coast community. Each practitioner in our clinic has an undergraduate degree and then attended a four-year graduate school program in Traditional Chinese medicine. Their medical education included extensive training in Chinese medical theory and diagnosis, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, western medical theory and diagnosis, as well as massage and qi gong. The clinical training took place in a busy outpatient setting under the supervision of doctors of both Chinese and Western medicine.
While all of our acupuncturists have been trained as general practitioners, each has their own unique specialty. The acupuncturists at Longevity are devoted to integrating the use of Chinese medicine with the more mainstream western care most people receive. They are proud to be a part of the established professional medical community the Sarasota Florida region.
