She tailors each treatment to the individual, using Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture, and always using a gentle needling technique. She brings a sense of nurturing support to every treatment. Her massage style is both deep and relaxing. Dianne also uses Western, Ayurvedic and Chinese herbs to augment the healing process.

Dianne\\\\\\\'s philosophy of medicine: Inside each of us is a “Well” of Qi, or life force, that we can draw from. When our “wells” get cracked or muddy, our Qi becomes imbalanced or feels “dried up.” With the tools of acupuncture, massage and herbs, Dianne can help you regain balance and return to health.
