About Dana N Gehlhausen, L.Ac.


From a young age, Dana would walk down to her family's garden, plop on the ground and eat vegetables right off the plant.  Having been raised in a holistically minded family, a natural way to health and living has always been her way of life.

Having set out in another profession with the goal of working with and helping others, after several years she realized she needed to change course.  As most of us have, she saw many experience challenging, difficult, and potentially painful treatments, and side effects; and others who were either looking for other healthcare options, or were holistically minded themselves. Having a minor experience herself where a shotgun approach was recommended with minimal insight into her own health and symptoms with no set outcome given, she left and made her first Acupuncture appointment for that very day. 

Reading some of the ancient Chinese texts during her first semester in Graduate School reaffirmed her desire to learn and practice this medicine and healthcare system.  Fundamentally, Chinese medicine sees the body as a whole, that the homeostasis is of health and wellness, and that dis-ease is the result of a disharmony, unbalance, or a factor from our environment, life, emotions, or surroundings. 

Dana's goal is to help you achieve optimal health and wellness by developing and working with you on a personalized treatment plan to achieve the harmony and balance you and your body are meant to have. She has seen the undeniable results and successes that acupuncture and Chinese medicine have and is grateful to be able to share the benefit of her extensive and continued education with you. Dana looks forward to working with you and being part of your journey to the pain free health and life you want and deserve to have. 

Dana is very grateful and fortunate to have received her Graduate education from two of the oldest and most esteemed colleges of Oriental Medicine in the United States.  Benefiting from the strong academic courses and rigor, to a unique, vast and unparalleled clinical experience under the guidance of facility and clinic supervisors who brought their own vast knowledge, know-how, and experience, she feels very fortunate.
