"Last year when I injured my back and was taking way too many pain pills for the pain, my doctor, physical therapist, and chiropractor all recommended acupuncture to me to help control the pain from my 2 slipped disks. I saw Daniela and her treatments saved me from having surgery on my back. - H. Boucher
“If you suffer from acid reflux or any digestive disorder, you really should consider acupuncture treatments! After about five gentle, caring and relaxing sessions with Daniela, I felt well and confident enough to reduce my traditional (allopathic) medication by half. I am now feeling the least symptomatic of three years! I only wish I had sought this alternative healing sooner! Thanks Daniela!” - J. Forth
"I sought acupuncture for a natural way of diminishing my symptoms of depression and anxiety. I remember after the first session my mood felt lighter, and more positive. After a couple of sessions I went from being very anxious most of the time to not having any anxiety at all. The acupuncture enabled me to stay with positive thoughts easily and calm down so that I could look at my life from a positive perspective. With regular sessions I am feeling much better. Daniela is very caring, helpful and attentive, and she takes a personal interest in your health, which is comforting." - J. Johnston
“The first time I saw Daniela for acupuncture I was a little skeptical and scared a lot! Western medicine couldn’t find anything to attribute my cough to, so they sent me away with an allergy diagnosis. When I couldn’t take the night and day coughing any longer I went to see Daniela. After only about a month of weekly treatments and customized herbs my cough was totally and completely gone, my side affects were lessened and my headaches were rare and less severe. I now continue to see Daniela 2 ½ years later for a number of things that come up from time to time and for my general health. I am still always amazed though that a needle in just the right spot can immediately alleviate any pain I am feeling, cause me to sleep soundly, and restore my overall mental and physical well being”.

Points in the hand correspond to areas of the body and to certain disharmonies.
Auricular Therapy (Ear Acupuncture)
Points in the ear correspond to areas of the body and to certain disharmonies. This system is commonly used for pain control and drug, alcohol, and nicotine addictions.
Electro acupuncture is similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted at specific treatment points along the body. A Micro-current of electricity is applied to acupuncture needles as a means of further stimulating the acupuncture points. Electro Acupuncture is especially useful for pain syndromes, post surgery, or in difficult to treat cases.
