Styles of Acupuncture

Diana practices two distinct styles of acupuncture: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM)©, the hallmark of her training.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is the predominant form of acupuncture practiced today, often relying more on herbology than acupuncture to treat imbalances. Diana believes that acupuncture is an effective means for treating many forms of disharmony without the need for imbibing substances. Therefore, she uses Traditional Chinese Medical diagnosis and methods as a part, but not the whole, of your treatment.

Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) is an adaptation of trigger point therapy, using acupuncture needles to release tight bands of muscle. It directly treats the root cause of disharmony while relieving current symptoms. Years of chronic constrictions can yield in relatively few sessions. Diana generally applies APM concepts and techniques when working with musculoskeletal imbalances.

This diverse background in acupuncture gives Diana the freedom to choose the most appropriate style to address your needs. She believes in using whatever works to assist you in your healing process.
