This Acupuncture clinic is the epitome of Excellence in non-traditional medicine. To say that that I am happy with the services and care from Back to Balance is an understatement. Overall, Donna is an extremely gifted and talented Acupuncturist, and has exhibited time and again her professional demeanor, friendly customer service, and true dedication to a patient’s comfort and medical needs. I am very satisfied with the care that I receive from Donna and her staff. She is by far the best pain relief provider that I have ever had. In just a few sessions, Donna has reduced the pain levels in my damaged knees, back, neck, and ankles so much; that I now enjoy a better quality of life, that I haven’t felt in years. I have also experienced better breathing, sinus pressure relief, reduced allergy symptoms, and improved sleep due to the treatments I have received. I would... Read more »

I came to Donna at Back to Balance after two years of fighting neuropathy in both my lower legs and feet due to the very aggressive chemotherapy treatments used for my breast cancer. After several visits to Donna’s office I’m feeling much more relief than I have had in a long time. Donna is very friendly and knowledgeable. I really like how Donna goes over the results from the body acu-graph results with me so I have better understanding about the treatment areas. I look forward to continuing treatments that use my body’s natural healing properties rather than medications low term. Im still amazed how small needles and lasers can heal, but seeing the daily improvements has made me a believer and I look forward to future visits…

After a full round of antibiotics and several OTC remedies, I still had pain in my lungs and had come down with a cold on top of it. One hour in Donna’s office gave me more relief than weeks of using inhalers and decongestants.... Read more »
She used a machine to take readings at different points on my hands and feet, and then used that information to customize my treatment. She also asked me questions about my general health and other issues I wanted to address, and told me how she was planning to treat them.
I’m not someone who is afraid of needles, but I still appreciated how comfortable the process was. It’s more painful to get my eyebrows threaded than this was. Donna even used a needle to activate the ‘relaxation point’ which

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, health is achieved by living in balance with nature and the seasons. Winter, the season of the Water Element, is the season for slowing down, reflecting, and conserving our resources. We all feel this tendency, but we don’t always listen to our bodies.

However, this may be a product of living in an industrialized world and not the
For most people, the change of seasons from winter to spring is something to look forward to. But it also means a time when people tend to get sick or seasonal allergies start to flare up.

Winter’s element is water and is associated with the kidneys, which in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is considered the source of all qi and energy within the body. Winter is also associated with the bladder and adrenal glands.
