About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We have expert licensed acupuncture specialists on staff, and we provide top quality treatments following traditional methods and scientific evidence. What makes us different is our "No frills, just skills" approach. Most people go to acupuncture to get treatment for stress-related and pain conditions. High cost acupuncture treatments just add to their stress. No matter where you go for acupuncture, effective treatment requires only 20-30 minutes, sometimes less, and involves, generally, between 5 and 20 needles. However, some clinics charge you high fees to maintain a spa-like atmosphere in a high rent location that has no bearing on the outcome of the acupuncture treatment. We have a basic, clean, comfortable medical clinic atmosphere and focus our attention on health care, pain and stress reduction, not frills. Consequently, you get more actual acupuncture treatments for your money.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Seeing people relieved of stress and pain by acupuncture, herbal medicine, or hypnotherapy.

    I had back pain from work for years and nothing helped. Then a friend do brought me in to Don and after a couple of sessions the pain was gone. 3 years later it still is.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
The NCCAOM and Arizona Acupuncture Board of Examiners both require licensed acupuncturists to complete a minimum of 15 hours of approved continuing education to maintain a license to practice. Our expert licensed acupuncturists all complete at least 15 hours of continuing education in the latest techniques. In addition, our head acupuncturist is approved to provide continuing education to other licensed acupuncturists.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I had health issues that did not get resolved by conventional medical approaches, and I already had experience with Asian martial arts, diet therapy, and philosophy. When I got a series of 10 or so treatments from an acupuncture and herbal medicine provider and got relief from issues that had plagued me for decades, I decided to become an Oriental medicine provider myself.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We treat many patients with pain and stress, as well as skin disorders, menstrual disorders, and menopausal imbalances.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure your provider holds an NCCAOM board certification in acupuncture and herbal medicine as well as an Arizona state license to practice acupuncture, not just a license to practice chiropractic, naturopathic medicine, or allopathic medicine.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Acupuncture is a bit like exercise: the more frequently you do it, the better your results.
