About Dr. Villalba

Ricardo LAc, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine and licensed in the state of Florida. He is a specialist in chronic pain, fatigue, mood disorders, and digestive health using Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Therapeutic Nutrition, and Unified Therapy. After completing eight years of fast paced and high demand military service in the United States Coast Guard as an Electrical Engineer, he followed his passion to serve and educate his community using Chinese and Holistic Medicine.

He graduated from Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine with a Bachelor in Health Science and a Master's in Oriental Medicine. He is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Foundations of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbs and Biomedicine. During this time he also pursued pain management and emotional release techniques certification at the Evolutionary Healing Institute.

Ricardo’s approach to every individual patient is incorporating caring and deep listening to each detail and aspect of how every problem can be transformed into a step by step program of achievable health goals. The reward of watching people take part in their own healing process is only matched by the honor of walking along side of someone who shares their growth along the way.

Ricardo was born to two loving and hard-working parents. His mother came to the United States from Italy and his father from Colombia. His family always encouraged him to learn as much as he could as he had the opportunity to simultaneously experience multiple cultures.

After transitioning from the military and experiencing chronic pain and fatigue along with sustained injuries and surgeries, Ricardo sought out Holistic Care for help with chronic pain and fatigue issues to help manage and minimize time away from doing things in life that he loves. He wanted to pursue a career where he could continue to change lives and empower those with chronic pain, fatigue, and digestive disorders.

His Introduction to Chinese Medicine and Unified Therapy started immediately after his Coast Guard career and had a profound impact on his thought process about the human body. Chinese medicine and Unified Therapy are powerful mind-body systems that truly find the root of many disorders. Ricardo worked with local acupuncturists and Unified Therapy masters. The results he witnessed were nothing short of amazing. He learned how focusing attention on the pain and learning how one can communicate with it to learn a way through times of distress. The practice of allowing oneself to explore the pain can lead to discovering feelings and emotions that have been suppressed or distorted. As he combined the use of Acupuncture, specialized breathing techniques, and meditation, he was able to identify the physiological processes and diseases that take place during or after times of stress.

Ricardo’s mission and purpose is to bring relief to his patients with chronic pain, fatigue, digestive distress, mood disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches/facial pain, stress, anxiety,insomnia, pain due to injury, neuralgia and neuropathy. He sees pain in the body as an opportunity not only to learn and listen to what it can teach us to make adjustments to our daily lives but also communicate with it allowing it to guide us back to optimal health.

Ricardo continually focuses on personal growth and volunteering in his community. He also has a love for playing music and studying the most effective and current ways to treat pain.
