Diana initially decided to make a shift in her career into Eastern medicine after she had remarkable results addressing a number of acute and chronic health concerns while being treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. This experience ignited a passion for the study of Chinese Medicine and she was particularly drawn to two Chinese medical philosophies- first the concept of looking at the body as a whole integrated entity instead of many individual parts, and second to the idea of focus of treatment to the root cause instead of merely symptomatic relief. She has since discovered that these approaches naturally stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms, allowing a practitioner to use minimally invasive treatments while gaining profound healing results.
Diana draws from all of her experience to provide a genuinely holistic approach to treatment in the clinic. She is deeply dedicated to her patients and their treatment outcomes and, beyond her direct clinical treatments, encourages patients to take active part in their healing process by placing a strong emphasis on appropriate diet and lifestyle to find proper balance between Mind, Body, and Spirit.
