Older Americans living their best life thanks to acupuncture

Mulberry Integrative Medicine

The Villages acupuncture clinic options boil down to one name you can trust: Mulberry Integrative Medicine.

In October 2005, Dr. Cheshire and his wife, Meredith left Long Island, NY to start their own practice in The Villages, FL. They named their company Mulberry Oriental Medicine and focused on Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs.

As their practice grew, the Cheshire’s found that there were many facets of healthcare missing in The Villages. Patients started asking about different ways to conquer pain and different, more natural ways to take care of themselves. They started to search for other practitioners in the area that would follow their lead and mission: “Give the patient the best healthcare and education so when they leave our offices, they are empowered with good health and knowledge.”

In 2008, Mulberry Oriental Medicine moved to Lake Sumter Landing in The Villages. In 2009, they changed their name to Mulberry Integrative Medicine to reflect more of what the company actually promotes and practices.

The Physicians at Mulberry Integrative believe that there is a place for what can be called Western Medicine and that there is a place for Eastern medicine. The ultimate goal is to achieve the balance for each individual patient in that paradigm. While all the physicians have protocols they start with for every patient, these protocols change with the needs of the patient.

No patient is the same and therefore no protocol is the same for every patient.

“Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;… and not today’s pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man.” ~James H. West
