Acupuncture, Natural Medicine, Therapeutic KungFu & Breathwork
Javier Vicente Ferrer Merino (Tronko) is a Licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor (since 1999) originally from Spain. He has lived and studied with many indigenous healers in Mexico and Costa Rica and through his 20 years of practice he has created a blend of Chinese and American natural therapeutic techniques geared toward healing and improving the body.
Tronko believes that anyone can heal and maintain a healthy human machine with natural medicine. He helps anyone willing to learn, to heal themselves. A consultation with Tronko includes time to understand the root or ‘nature’ of an illness, acupuncture (when appropriate), and natural remedies or Therapeutic Kung Fu exercises to do at home to increase healing.
He offers consultations and wellness coaching. Consultations are one and a half (1.5) hours $80 at Nosara Wellness Center. Follow up visits (when necessary are $60 one (1) hour. Consultations address illness or “disease” in the body to help you recover when you are not feeling your best. Wellness coaching helps when you are feeling good to achieve even better health, more strength and control over your emotions; to be your best.
We also offer a wellness special for $50 on Tuesday called “Feeling Good Tuesday.” Every week we choose an acupuncture technique designed to improve health. Techniques increase lung power, activate regeneration in joints, or balance digestive energies. Also, watch for Natural Medicine courses and Therapeutic Kung Fu and Breathwork retreats.

How does acupuncture work?
Our bodies have energetic maps with chakras and meridians marking the way like cities and highways on a road map. Acupuncture works by hacking our body’s electrical system. Our brain and neurological system are constantly sending and receiving messages, creating functions and movements throughout the body. Thin needles are used to activate specific energy centers and send messages for the brain to respond and heal the body.
Acupuncture can activate or moderate energies within the body that are out of balance and is especially helpful to aid in the healing of surf injuries, digestive problems, and nervous system issues like depression or anxiety.
Some of the conditions for which acupuncture is appropriate include: Headaches; Menstrual Problems & Symptoms of the menopause; Backache; Arthritis; Nausea/Vomiting; Anxiety; Depression; Digestive problems; Insomnia; Asthma; though there are many more.
