Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system like its western counterpart. While western medicine uses pharmacy to control and manage the symptoms of serious diseases which often continue indefinitely, TCM holistically diagnoses and treats the underlying reason that gives rise to disease symptoms and attempts a finite treatment. This holistic viewpoint considers your spiritual wellbeing as having an effect on physical well being.

Understanding Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a 3,000-year- old therapy used for pain relief but has far wider applications to treat the multitude of medical conditions seen in our society. The procedure places sterile, thin, flexible needles into the body at well- established anatomic markers to treat the Chinese medical diagnosis you will receive at your first visit. The energetic imbalances are carefully redirected to a healthy normal energy state that allow complete health to resume.


Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine can be used as a complementary therapeutic modality to acupuncture. Herbal medicine is an in-depth study of naturally occurring substances found all around us and how these substances correct imbalances within the body. Chinese herbs are derived from plants, animal by products, fruits, stones & flowers. Dana's studied these herbs and their constituents so they can be combined to create an individualized formula.


I have been working with Dana Ruben for past 2 months and had 9 visits with her. The treatment she offered has been very successful. She was able to find the right remedies for my elimination problem, sleep issues and stress. I have much more energy than 2 months ago. Dana’s approach is very personal and engaging. Her inquisitive nature helps to look at health issues from different angles and ask right questions. She is good at active listening. Dana is very confident and professional which builds a lot of trust. I am very happy I got her to work with me as I made more progress than working with other traditional Chinese medicine professionals.

Dana is intuitive, confident and manipulated points in such a way I’ve never experienced before.  I could actually feel the changes in flow of energy and felt like I was truly healing with her work. She not only exhibited exceptional needling technique, but also gave me great talk therapy with insights on how to treat my body and self. I recommend her to everyone.

One year after having reconstructive foot surgery the pain and swelling was still unbearable even with anti-inflammatory medications. After only one month of treatments with acupuncture and herbs my pain and swelling was tremendously improved. As a veterinarian who works on my feet all day I am immensely grateful. Thank you Dr Dana!

I saw Dana for severe back pain and could not believe how amazing I felt just after one visit! She was able take away the tightness and throbbing and I got off the table feeling limber and relaxed. Her demeanor is sweet, professional and I am now a huge believer in acupuncture! If you have pain, you need to see Dana. I highly recommend her!

I can’t praise Dana enough as she is the only one who has been able to alleviate my neck pain, caused by arthritis and stenosis, that I have suffered with for over 25 years. I have tried PT (on 2 separate occasions) chiropractic, regular massages, traction, and anti-inflammatories. After my first visit my neck was still a little stiff but the pain was drasitcally reduced. After my second visit, my range of motion was amazing and the pain was COMPLETELY GONE. I know that each person reacts differently to different treatment but this has certainly worked for me! Thank you Dr. Dana! I love being pain free!

Seeing Dana has improved my health immensely! Both my migraines and my fibromyalgia pain have decreased and become manageable due to her treatment. My immune system is stronger and I’ve been able to fight off a few illnesses that normally would have landed me at my doctor’s office. Dana is gentle and knowledgeable about her practice. I highly recommend getting acupuncture from her if you are in search of a competent, caring practitioner who is constantly updating her skills and is a genuinely nice person.
