Danielle Redfern L.Ac.

Danielle specializes in pain management, stress and anxiety relief, and woman’s health issues. Danielle chooses between Dr. Tan’s Balance Method, Korean 4-needle technique, and Master Tungs Chinese methods depending on how each patient presents. Danielle’s real specialty is getting better results with less needles. According to Danielle “Chinese Medicine works through a complex energy pathway in our bodies called the meridians. Just like our digestive, respiratory and nervous systems, our meridian system works in conjunction with the other systems in our body to maintain health. In an ideal optimal state of health, our energy circulates in the meridians smoothly without interruption or blockage. A health issue arises when the energy flow is disrupted causing an imbalance. “

Danielle uses Chinese Medicine to restore the body’s equilibrium through acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, gua-sha, tui-na, ear seeds and more. Danielle is fluent in both English and Korean.
