First Class Care

GET THE BEST RESULTS

Less needles and faster, more long-lasting results are what you can expect with the style of Acupuncture in which I specialize, Master Tung's Acupuncture. 

Does It Hurt?

MOST PEOPLE FALL ASLEEP

I treated a 12 year old who was so nervous every muscle was stiff as a board. When I put in the first needle, he burst out in a huge peal of laughter He said, "THAT WAS IT??!!" I said - yup. People usually doze off during Acupuncture treatments, because it's so relaxing.  

What's It For?

WHEN CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP

I have a specialty in women's health & hormonal health, but also treat all types of conditions.  Acupuncture is the first thing I think of for pain, insomnia, stress & anxiety, stress, the immune system, the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, and anti-aging. 

 DANA IS MY GOLD STANDARD WHEN IT COMES TO ACUPUNCTURE 

I have some nerve damage in my left leg from a disk that ruptured in my low back. After having a number of Acupuncture treatments with Dana I moved out of the area - and even though several years have passed - I still think of how much better I felt because of working with Dana. I've been to several acupuncturists and still, holding Dana as my gold standard, have yet to find anyone who even comes close.

Leg Cramps and Eyesight


AN

I've been working with Dana for just over 3 months. I started with Acupuncture and herbs, and for the past two months I've just been taking the herbs. When I started, my diabetes was out of control. I was having leg cramps every night that were so intense I dreaded the sun going down. The pain was severe and went on for hours. I couldn't find any relief, and I couldn't get any sleep. I was also depressed, my blood sugars were out of control. I have also bee seeing a specialist eye doctor every 2-3 months for the last 6 years, and I was afraid I was going to lose my vision because of the diabetes. After working with Dana, my leg cramps are 99% gone, I'm sleeping pretty much through the night, my mood is so much better - and at my last appointment with the eye doctor he said I didn't need to see him any more unless something happened. This was such a huge relief - and something I never thought would happen!

Dana always gets me feeling better AND taking better care of myself


C.H.

When I go to Dana for treatment, I feel safe, protected and cared for. Dana has such a calm and welcoming presence. She listens and observes very carefully. Her knowledgeable perspective and skillful treatments always get me both feeling better and taking better care of myself

Acupuncture with Dana feels like having laughing gas


K.H.

Dana is like another mom- she really cares and listens, and having acupuncture with Dana feels like having laughing gas at the dentist.

The first thing that worked for my PMS & anxiety


J.C.

I've tried many different remedies to help with mood swings during PMS and also with anxiety. I was hesitant to spend more money and possibly be disappointed yet again, but My mood swings associated with PMS changed drastically with Dana's help.

Breast Pain & Cysts


A.N.

Before coming to Dana, I was dealing with severe breast pain as well as too many complex breast cysts to be counted. The pain was so severe that I was avoiding all physical contact. There were days when even my clothing hurt. My cysts required me to get mammograms and ultrasound every 6 months for 2 years. In addition to the emotional stress of these appointments, I was also dealing with the physical pain they caused.

Dana recommended a course of treatment which included herbs as well as acupuncture. Within a couple of weeks, my breast pain was dramatically reduced. After a month, it was completely gone. While the cysts are not gone, they have reduced both in size and number. They are now at the point that I no longer require frequent scans. In fact, my last mammogram was the first in years that did not include a call back.

My husband claims that my PMS mood swings were almost non-existant


A.O.

Thank you so much for sharing the benefits of the Goji and Schizandra drops at the last gathering. Being a Health Coach, I am pretty good about knowing how to understand my body and help others do the same. But the one thing i was missing was my hormonal balance. I started taking it 2 weeks before my period was due and boy did it make a difference. First, my husband claims that my PMS mood swings were almost non-existant, my cramping was very minimal, and I only had 1 day of heavy bleeding. ON an even better note, it has significantly improved my libido. Usually I wait at least a week after a period to have sex but my husband was pleasantly surprised when i initiated only a few days later. He kept wondering when my "Prime" would hit (since they say its in the 30s) and I guess I can say that I hit mine at 36 with the help of Goji and Schizandra drops. I will be sure to share this and your services in general with my clients. I look forward to sitting down with you in the future, maybe for coffee or tea or something and talk about how we can work together to help others heal.

Acupuncture & Herbs for Anxiety & Depression


AN

Acupuncture with Dana has changed my life! Just before I started acupuncture I had gone through countless drugs trying to get relief form anxiety and depression. The acupuncture and herbs have mellowed me out, and now I no longer yell at my child every day. Yay!:) Thank You!

Acupuncture with Dana


A.N.

Acupuncture treatment from Dana is amazing. There is no pain, only relaxation and enjoyment to follow. I don't think there is anything Dana can’t help or fix

Constipation secondary to Parkinsons


G.K.

Constipation is common element that needs to be managed as we age. In my case it is s exaggerated by my Parkinson’s

Dana was confident there were a few points on the body that would relieve constipation, if I needed help in addition to the over the counter meds I take for it on daily basis.

Today was particularly difficult, and we decided to try acupuncture. As soon as the needles came out, I felt the need for the bathroom - and treatment was an absolute success. It seemed to be too good to be true that it could work so quickly, but I won’t question the result. In fact, it seemed the best thing I could do would be to spread the word about my experience

I couldn't sleep at night due to arthritis..


A.N.

I didn't believe in acupuncture until I tried it. I couldn't sleep at night because my shoulders hurt from arthritis. After one treatment, the pain was almost gone. After the second, I was sleeping like a baby. I won't ever stop coming to see Dana. She is awesome!!! Come see her, you won't regret it.

I have feeling in my calf for the first time in 20 years...


Ron

After a few acupuncture sessions with Dana, I now have feeling in my left calf for the first time in 20 years, and I can also feel 2 toes on my left foot. Thank You!

I‘ve only seen my chiropractor once in the last several months and I used to go weekly or several times per week.


IC

I’ve noticed I no longer need to see my chiropractor or get massage since I’ve been getting weekly acupuncture treatments with Dana. Even though we’re working on hormonal issues, there must be something about acupuncture that helps my chronic hip pain. I‘ve only seen my chiropractor once in the last several months and I used to go weekly or several times per week. I also used to get massage every other week and don’t feel the need (or have the time) for it.

Neuropathy relief during chemo


LB

After starting a course of chemo.. I experienced a return of the severe electric, burning pain I had in my legs during my last round of chemo. It's so bad it goes up my legs all the way to my thighs. I am unsteady on my feet and can't drive.

After 1 acupuncture treatment with Dana, my pain was reduced by 60-70%. I felt much better overall and was able to rest and sit still.

What Can I Expect To Happen During My Treatment? 

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN - EXACTLY? 

We'll start your treatment by talking.  I'll get your history and information about your current health.  I'll ask things like - how is your energy level, how do you sleep, and where does it hurt.  Then I'll check your pulses, at your wrists, and have you stick out your tongue so I can look at it for just a sec -  weird right? But it's a great part of the Chinese Medicine Diagnosis!  Then you'll lie down on a massage table, with your clothes rolled up to your knees and elbows or under a sheet, and I'll insert a few teeny, tiny acupuncture needles.  We'll confirm you're comfortable and pain free - and I'll leave you to rest with the needles in for anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes.  I'll be checking on you the whole time.  This is the part when people often fall asleep... Then I'll remove the needles and you'll be on your way.  

How Should I Prepare For My Appointment? 

ANYTHING I SHOULD KNOW AHEAD OF TIME?

If it's  your first visit, be sure to fill out your New Patient Paperwork ahead of time.  You'll receive it via email when you schedule your appointment.  And if online is inconvenient for you - you can arrive 15 minutes early and fill it out in the office.  


The only other thing I recommend is - don't skip your last meal.  So if your appointment is in the morning - be sure to eat breakfast.  And if your appointment is in the afternoon - don't skip lunch.  Even a snack is fine.  Just don't come in without having eaten for more than 4-5 hours.  

Does My Appointment Include an Herbal Consultation? 

IS THIS ACUPUNCTURE ONLY? 

I'll often recommend a simple herbal combination to support the work we're doing with your acupuncture... But this appointment is devoted to giving you the best Acupuncture experience with the best results possible.  


If you want to work with me more in-depth with herbs, we'll set up a separate appointment that will be devoted to setting up a custom Three Treasures Adaptogenic Herbal Program for you and optimizing your diet & lifestyle to get the best results from herbs.  CLICK HERE to set up a FREE call with me to learn more about my Herbal Consultations.
