Do you have trouble sleeping?
It is her specialty and passion to help people sleep soundly so they can live their life at its fullest.
If you are waking up in the middle of the night, finding it difficult to go to sleep, experiencing disturbed sleep, waking up feeling tired, or having difficulty staying awake when reading or while driving, then you may have a sleeping disorder.
Acupuncture can help dramatically improve the quality of your sleep and also alleviate symptoms commonly associated with poor sleep, such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, hot flashes, and night sweats.
Never Tried Acupuncture? Attend Our Needle Parties
Damiana is offering an acupuncture session during our monthly Needle Party for a very low fee (which will be donated to one of the local foundations). She believes in the power of connection first and foremost, so this is also an opportunity for you to get to know her first and try out her treatments. Please visit the Event Page if you would like to attend one of these parties.
Alternative to Corticosteroids for Athletes, Injection Therapy for Acute or Chronic Injuries
Damiana is also one of the few acupuncturists in Boulder to do Injection Therapy (also known as biopuncture therapy), which is the same as normal intramuscular injection and subcutaneous injection as far as how they are administered. However, they differ in the location of the body where they are administered. Homeopathic injections such as Traumeel are administered in acupuncture and trigger points throughout the body depending on the condition treated or area of the body that is injured. Trameel is a natural anti-inflammatory alternative to cortisone shots. Because of the nature of homeopathic remedies, there is no limit to the usage of these injections, they do not interfere with other treatments, and they do not have side effects. Some of the conditions treated are: acute pain, sports injuries, automobile accidents, and chronic pain.
More about Damiana
Damiana’s healing pathway was embedded in her being ever since she was born. Damiana is an aphrodisiac plant (Turnera Aphrodisiaca), though her name was inspired from St. Damian, a doctor who traveled the country and helped people physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Furthermore, she grew up watching her aunt do miracles with herbs – who was considered the witch of the town.
Her strong determination to do what she truly loves took her through a few different paths until she figured out what resonated with her. Experiencing her father dying of Alzheimer’s disease planted a seed in her heart, that one day she would make a difference in the health field.
She had always dreamed as a child to be a teacher so she decided to attend college for that. After a year she decided that Law school might suit her better. Half way through Law school, she felt like she finally found her true love – Acupuncture and Herbal medicine.
Damiana proudly graduated with Summa Cum Laude (GPA 4.0) in 2009 from East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida. She is Board Certified in Chinese Herbology, which altogether with the Board Certification in Acupuncture, Foundations of Chinese Medicine, and Biomedicine gives her the statute of Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
She is honored and thrilled to join the Holistica Integrative Care team. To visit her website, CLICK HERE.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DAMIANA
I want to thank Damiana for restoring my emotional health. She provided me with the best natural medical care. My nurse practioner tried to help me with anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs, but I knew they were only covering up the symptoms, not providing the healing I needed. Having found Damiana and her practice of acupuncture, I am now drug free and better than ever. My outlook on life has totally changed since my treatments. I can’t say enough good things about acupuncture, if you are suffering with depression or emotional distress you will not find relief thru drugs. I recommend the natural alternative of acupuncture to my friends and co-workers. It works! Thank you Damiana.
