Thomas Chavie, a 14 year military veteran who served during the Gulf War era, have been my Physical Therapist at the Miami VA, Florida since my retirement from the military.
After my lower body paralysis and my L5-S1 Laminectomy surgery, Thomas was my assigned Therapist. Under his care, I have seen massive improvement to not just my gait but my overall physical ability, as well as my mental , emotional and spiritual health.
Struggling with a host of other injuries to include a recent triple tear in my right meniscus which left me again wheelchair bound, Thomas was able to get me back on my feet in less than three weeks versus the expected 10 months to a year my Primary Care and Foot Doctor both had anticipated. Through a series of cupping, acupuncture, infrared therapy, herbal medicine and physical therapy protocol, he was able to deploy me from the wheel chair being pushed around to me walking with the temporary aid of a push walker to now moving on my own in a matter of a few months.
For the past fifteen plus years Thomas Chavie have been my go to guy and I would not have it any other way even when I have to pay for Private Treatment at his practice outside of the VA (Veteran’s Affairs Hospital system). While an Acupuncture student at ATOM, I was his patient through the entire process, as well as his Physical Therapy patient at his job in the VA. The results I have seen and experienced with him over the years have been beyond superb or even magnificent and phenomenal.
Struggling with severe fibromyalgia and total body myopic fasciitis, along with a past TBI brain trauma injury and several fractured C-Vertebrae, as a result of my twenty-two plus years Active Duty Military career, I can tell you, finding Thomas Chavie was a definite God-Send. His innate desire to heal, shows in the protocols he uses and ultimately the patients he treats. He prides himself on his consistent desire and ability to learn about the newest and next best holistic therapeutic method available that will bring ultimate results and healing for his patients.
He treats his patients with the same or similar protocols he uses on his spouse and both their elderly parents. This attests to his skills and proficiency, as all four parents of him and his spouse are very much alive and have managed to survive even in the plight of the pandemic and scare and fear of Covid. When one considers that the elderly, 70’s and beyond to include those with existing health issues, have a very low survival ration in the height of this viral pandemic, one has to only wonder how Thomas’ parents and parents-in-law have managed to stave it off.
I am in awe of his ability to relate, not just professionally but also in a personal way to each and every patient he serves, no matter the settings or conditions or for who he works. Thomas was no less professional as an accredited seasoned Physical Therapist with years of experience under his belt while working for the VA health care system, than he was as an acupuncture student treating patients in school, an attitude of academic and certified success that have followed him to his now private practice.
Not to blow his horn, but Thomas Chavie is by far one of, if not the best, in his field. I would dare to say, from my years of affiliation with him as a patient, never as a personal friend, Thomas to me, is indeed “THE BEST” in his field yet.
I do suggest, anyone suffering or struggling with most any type of pain or body injury, especially long term ones for which you cannot seem to get help, give Thomas a call. I have to say, I do not believe for a moment you will regret it at all. Not only is he through and treat you according to your issues; he creates an individual protocol specifically to suite your needs and illness/injuries.. Thomas never, ever used a cookie cutter or one size fits all approach. He also never, ever prolong your treatments beyond what is required. You never have to worry about being overcharged and/or under served. You will see your money’s worth, whether you are paying direct or through another source. As a long standing patient of over 15 years, I stand by Thomas and his Care. Even when treatments are no longer required for my injuries, I still pay for his services as maintenance is key to my physical functionality and stopping some, while helping to decrease others such as my back pain and fibromyalgia.
I truly cannot say enough about Thomas Chavie without sounding as if I have vested interest in his practice (lol). I sure which I did (lol), because his meticulous attention to detail, his deep innate ingrained desire to help his patient heal, coupled with his consummate professionalism is beyond par by far. All I can say to those in pain or experiencing other issues, especially those unexplained, please give Thomas a try; I guarantee, with the results you see, you will be satisfied. I know I am, and have been, each and every time.

Let’s be honest. I had never heard of cupping therapy until I saw Michael Phelp’s red-and-purple spotted back. The most decorated swimmer in the world wasn’t shy about showing his love for cupping, the ancient Chinese practice-turned-sports recovery technique for elite athletes everywhere.
So, after weeks, actually months of back pain, I decided to give it a try. I went to see Tom in his Miami practice. He applied these cups that seemed to suck the skin out my body. It was almost like a reverse massage. I stayed with the cups for about 15 minutes. What an incredible feeling!
It’s been over a week, and I have zero back pain. Tom has magic hands. Honestly. I am going back next week for my weekly treatment!
“I would recommend Thomas Chavie Acupuncture Physician to anyone who has pain. I was having terrible pain in my right shoulder and I could barely raise my arm. I am a health aide and I have to be able to lift patients up out of the bed, help them walk, shower, and do the normal things in life.
My shoulder pain was so bad that I was having a hard time doing my job. Thomas put in acupuncture needles with electricity and performed some type of oriental massage. Almost right after he was done, the pain was almost gone and I was able to lift my arm again. I will definitely go to see him again when I have another health problem.”
“Thomas Chavie is the most outstanding Physical Therapist, Acupuncturist, Oriental Medicine Practitioner, and Sports Medicine Therapist that I have ever had the pleasure of being a patient of. Not to mention that Thomas was also a U.S. Army Nurse for many years. He has the highest certifications, qualifications, and knowledge that I have ever seen at the State, National, and International levels and has been a Valedictorian in his studies.
Thomas studies the patient’s case very thoroughly in conjunction with the Medical Doctors and Surgeons that always recommend him (Orthopedics, Neurologists, Physiatrist, Family Practice, etc.) and he always comes up with an outstanding plan for his patients. But what I have always seen personally from Thomas is that he listens to the patient and for me, that is one of the most important qualities that I look for.
Thomas Chavie has always made sure that my recovery and comfort are maximized and uses both the best in the latest Western, Oriental and Sports Medicine practices to achieve it. Thomas has treated my lower back (Lumbar), neck, knee, and shoulder and was also an integral part of a strategy along with my Neurosurgeon to treat and bring me comfort from Basilar Artery Migraines (rear lobe) as Acupuncture was also part of the treatment in conjunction with Western medical practices.
And let’s not forget that Thomas makes everyone laugh when they feel at their worst. He is the best of the best!!!”
“I was suffering from a severe case of TMJ. I was unable to eat or sleep, so I went to see Tom in his Miramar Acupuncture location. Tom was very courteous and professional from the very beginning, after evaluating my situation he decided that the best course of action would be a Homeopathic injection of Traumeel and some manipulation of the jaw.
Tom said you should have some relief in about 10 to 20 minutes, so by the time I got home I was still in pain and I thought the injection was not working, but a few hours later I was totally out of pain and was able to get some sleep and in a couple of days was able to open my mouth wide enough to eat without any discomfort.
I recommend Tom to anyone who is suffering from TMJ or any other pain.”
You’ve reduced my back pain since I started seeing you. Treating my back pain with cupping and acupuncture was new to me. I feel much better and I will continue to see you because I’ve seen long turn positive results after my first visit. I want to thank you for helping me with my back pain.
“I have the privilege of working with Thomas for 10 years. I have seen the care and the treatments that he provides for the Physical Therapy and Acupuncture’s patient. I trust Thomas with my care.
I recently had cupping therapy and after the treatment I felt so relaxed. The headaches and back pain decreased, and I was able to focus and care for my 3 boys. I recommend therapy treatments with Thomas; he is very knowledgeable, and he care about your health”
“I want to describe my experience with Tomas Chavie as a Physiotherapist and Acupuncturist. I have had my 5th left knee surgery at the end of June 2020. The procedure consisted of hardware removal, meniscus shaving, and some cartilage removal.
Tom has been assisting me from the day after the surgery. He did an amazing job helping me deal with the pain, swelling, and start me moving again. After two weeks of reduced activity, I developed a few posture issues that affected my back and neck. Tom, amazingly spotted it without me complaining of anything.
The guy knows what hurts you just from watching you. Tom has recently been treating some of my pain issues with acupuncture. Although I may have been skeptical at the beginning, I quickly discovered how powerful traditional Chinese medicine can be.
To conclude, Tom is an amazing and exceptionally experienced professional, with the ability to use a wide range of techniques. I am three months after this fifth left knee surgery, and I am back in some high-intensity exercises. Tom is the reason for this.“
“After treatment from Thomas Chavie, Acupuncture physician and physical therapist, for neck pain and stiffness, the muscles in my neck and back feel much more relaxed and my range of motion is greatly improved.”
