How We're Adjusting For COVID

Schedule an Acupuncture Preparation Call

Every time you schedule an acupuncture appointment, you'll also schedule an Acupuncture Preparation Call for the day before.  On the call I'll ask you about everything you want to work on with your needles.  We'll update herbs.  We'll take care of scheduling and payment.  That way when you come for your Acupuncture - you'll walk into a disinfected room and lie down on the table.  I'll come in and put your needles in, the leave you in the private room for the rest of your session - minimum contact. 

Complete a Screening Form

Before your Acupuncture Preaparation Call you'll be asked to fill out an onine form that screens for any high risk activities you might have been involved or signs you've had of possible infection in in the previous 14 days.  


No one will come into the office who  answers yes to any of these things.  You can look at the form here - it includes things like travel, fever or other symptoms, or contact with a sick person.  This helps ensure the safety of everyone who comes into the office. 

Disinfection Protocols

You'll notice the treatment rooms look different when you arrive.  No blankets, sheets, or regular pillows.  The room and office will be disinfected between each client.  For your treatment the disinfected table along with the vinyl-covered pillow and bolsters will be disinfected and covered with fresh paper.  This way we keep risk of exposure to an absolute minimum

Everyone Will Wear Masks

Everyone who comes into the office will be required to wear a mask the entire time they are in the building.  This helps decrease exposure for everyone. 

Limited appointments are available right now.  Once I've become comfortable with the time required for disinfection the schedule will open up.  If you have any questions - please contact me at danalavoielac.com. 

Is Acupuncture Right For You?


partnership

My goal is to make sure Acupuncture is safe, relaxing, gentle, and effective.  As an Acupuncturist with over 14 years' experience, I really get to know you and can guarantee guarantee consistent and personal care that is equal to your needs. I'm so excited to help you on your health journey!

MY STYLE OF ACUPUNCTURE

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?

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 Acupuncture For? 


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, the immune system, the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, and anti-aging. 

What About Herbal Medicine?

The right combination of herbs can help with everything from symptomatic relief to radically improving your health on the deepest levels.  

The Best Quality Herbs

I've found that sourcing not only the cleanest & safest, but the highest quality medicinal herbs makes all the difference.  You can take herbs all day long and not get anywhere near the results you'll get with the best quality versions of the very same herbs.

Tonics VS Medicinals

Most Chinese Herbs are medicinal.  They're great for when you're sick.  But because I specialize in Tonic (adaptogenic) herbs, my combinations can help  you achieve "Radiant Health: Health beyond danger.".

When To Choose Herbs

If you're looking to proactively promote wellness, a customized 3 Treasures Tonic Herbal Program benefits both body and mind, helping you achieve your health and life goals.   Herbs can also be used for individual challenges as they arise.

What Clients Say About Working With Dana

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

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.

Breast Pain & Cysts

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

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.

The first thing that worked for my PMS & anxiety

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.

Neuropathy relief during chemo

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.

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

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.

Leg Cramps and Saving Eyesight

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!

Constipation secondary to Parkinsons

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

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

Acupuncture & Herbs for Anxiety & Depression

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!
