Traditional Chinese Medicine is a vast, overwhelming collection of knowledge that one could devote a lifetime to and still not master completely. My responsibility is to trust the process and have confidence in what my own experience with the medicine brings forth in the form of bodywork and acupuncture. I provide support and fine attuning so clients can find their intended path in wellness and life. I am grateful for my education and all the incredible teachers along the way. I live this medicine and strive to deepen my knowledge and understanding of it everyday.

Chinese medicine, in most cases, is a more holistic approach to healing than Western Medicine. I give a thorough intake which includes many questions about health history, diet, sleep, digestion, the reproductive system, and emotional well being. I will listen to the pulse, examine the tongue and put together a treatment plan specific to each individual. It will take a range of 2-12 treatments to make significant progress. Successful treatment takes a joint effort from me, the practitioner, to tap into the root of your dis-ease and you, the patient, to reclaim responsibility for your health and make the necessary adjustments in order to reach desired health goals. I encourage clients to face what isn’t working for them health wise, and in life, and be willing to change those patterns to achieve a healthy, vibrant relationship in body, mind and soul.

Danielle’s acupuncture made my migraine disappear! I have seen her previously for massage and then recently I had a migraine coming on and she suggested doing some acupuncture. When I have a migraine coming on, trying to make it go away with massage, chiropractic, craniosacral or acupuncture has never worked. She started putting in needles and within 15 minutes my headache had disappeared – no medication at all! Seriously unprecedented! After the appointment I kept waiting for it to return but nope – It was Gone! Since then I have sent a number of friends to her for headaches and they have all had great success! She’s amazing and does a cool 2 hour session with massage mixed in that is phenomenal!
