I was first introduced to acupuncture in 1989 when my first husband was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.  I watched him go from being paralyzed on his whole left side to remission after one treatment, so much so that you couldn't tell he had MS.  That's when I knew I wanted to receive acupuncture myself.  Later when my husband and I split up I knew I would have to go to school for something to support my young children, so I chose acupuncture since it had helped me and my husband so much.  This has been the most amazing journey of a lifetime.  ​I have seen many miraculous results over the last two plus decades, and deeply love this medicine as much now as I did in the beginning, if not more.  No reason for receiving acupuncture is too big or too small.  

Some of my specialty areas include: Fertility, Allergies, and Pain.  


I say Fertility rather than infertility because in Chinese Medicine there is no word for infertility, all conditions are considered imbalance.  Restoring balance, restores the body's natural fertile state. 


I have trained in a specialty system called NAET (Nambudriped's Allergy Elimination Technique).  You can find more information about this system on their website:  As the name states, it actually eliminates your allergies.  You read this correctly, it gets rid of them.  An allergy in this system is any abnormal response to a normal substance or food.  This abnormal response is due to imbalance.  NAET not only identifies which substances you are reactive to, it clears the abnormal response allowing you to enjoy life without allergies.  I have seen people who couldn't eat eggs or dairy for years now enjoying those foods.  I had a friend who was highly allergic to dogs and cats come to my house for a few hours and leave in agonizing sneezing and runny nose, after NAET she was able to stay in my house for a whole weekend and didn't have to take an allergy pill.  


The body has many ways to direct energy (Qi) to eliminate or reduce pain.  There is a highly specialized system called "The Balance Method" which I have learned.  Again this almost seems like magic when used.  For example: I had a patient with shoulder pain on the left side.  By treating points on her left leg, the shoulder pain disappeared instantly.  

Your acupuncture session will be in a large, peaceful, private room. Using traditional five element acupuncture, Deanna focuses on identifying your blocks, weaknesses and root imbalances. In addition to treating the symptoms of your bad back, anxiety or pain she gets to the root of them, so they won't return. Deanna does this by working to restore your whole body's healthy, natural equilibrium. This includes balancing emotions or organs that are out of balance. This holistic approach using acupuncture can be used to treat most western diseases, either to help cure them or alleviate symptoms and side effects from prescribed drugs.

Acupuncture is often effective with a wide range of complaints, including chronic fatigue, allergies,  depression, back pain, joint pain, fertility, asthma, addictions, and stress. Acupuncture is also helpful for many chronic illnesses and health concerns that have no clear origin or cause.

Deanna is very experienced in treating Cancer Patients undergoing Chemotherapy.
Acupuncture is recognized by The National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society for being helpful in the management of side affects experienced during chemotherapy. Read frequently asked questions and answers about acupuncture on the National Cancer Institutes website:
