My story…

Yelena Pakula - Pembroke Pines Acupuncture Physician

Pembroke Pines acupuncturist Yelena Pakula, A.P.

I’m a Pembroke Pines acupuncture physician and practitioner of Chinese medicine. I was born in the Ukraine and grew up in St. Peterburg, Russia. Natural healing was part of the culture and environment in which I was raised. I studied Western medicine and became a medical doctor in Russia, but I gravitated toward natural healing and obtained additional training in acupuncture to integrate acupuncture into my medical practice in Russia.

In 2000, I immigrated to the United States. Instead of becoming a medical doctor, I studied traditional Chinese medicine and became a Florida licensed acupuncture physician. In June 2005, I opened Vita-Health Acupuncture and Wellness Center and today I integrate my knowledge of Western medicine with a traditional Eastern approach to wellness and healing.

I love what I do and I am humbled that patients travel from all over Florida and the US for treatment at my Pembroke Pines acupuncture clinic.
