You’re probably here because you’re not feeling your best. Whether it’s pain, stress, hormonal imbalances, or your metabolism… you just don’t feel like yourself anymore.
Deep down, you know you’re not here to struggle, feel uncomfortable in your skin, or be weighted down with low energy or anxiety. That’s why you’re here: you’re ready to break free into a new way of being, one that reflects who you really are as a healthy, radiant, powerful person who lives with confidence and passion.
Somewhere along the way, you lost connection with who you really are.
Many things can take us away from our true-self. Maybe it was a super stressful job, or you became over-involved in too many commitments. Maybe you lost track of taking care of yourself after having kids, or you’ve become overwhelmed because you’re constantly taking care of everybody else before taking care of yourself.
It feels really hard to slow down, shut off your mind, take a deep breath or get the clarity you need to get back into making your health a top priority again. You know your body is telling you something is off; whether it’s chronic headaches, menstrual problems, sugar cravings, extra weight, fatigue, neck tension or back pain.
Instead of just trying to numb these warning signs, you’re here because you’re ready to transform your life… and you know that you need to start with your physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
The good news is that, no matter how long you’ve felt “off” for, you’ve come to the right place…and there are indeed powerful, all-natural solutions to restore your health and reclaim a life of purpose, balance and joy.

Highly skilled and very caring practitioner.
I’ve had acupuncture for 23 years and seen numerous practitioners including several with extensive formal TCM training in China. From my first visit I could tell that Dana was very skilled and plays a part in my current health improvement. I can feel the results of her needling immediately, on the table, and over the next few days afterwards as well. And she is a very caring and kind practitioner who takes a keen interest in the specifics of my condition(s). I’ll be seeing more of her!
The best at what she does! Exhaustion and pain.
Dana continues to amaze me with her care and personality! My life is so much less ruled by pain, stress and exhaustion thanks to her!
Excellent Care! Asthma, adrenal fatigue, digestive and skin problems.
Dana is so wonderful! She has treated me, my husband, and my son. She is very good at diagnosing your condition as well as preparing Chinese herbal medicine. She has treated my asthma as well as adrenal fatigue and my husband’s digestion and skin problems. Dana is very good at what she does and also has a great personality!
Dana Carruth is amazing!!! Insomnia.
Dana has improve my quality of life significantly. I can now sleep thanks to Dana (I struggled with sleeping issues for 18 years) and my daily/nightly allergies are much less noticeable.
Highly Recommended! Anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain.
I have been going to Dana for over 7 months for various reasons ranging from anxiety, depression, and insomnia to managing pain from old injuries. She is warm, knowledgeable, highly skilled and effective with her treatments. This is also the first winter I have not been knocked out by some nasty cold and I know I can thank regular acupuncture for strengthening my immune system. Her services are now a non-negotiable part of my self care and I can not recommend Awaken Acupuncture enough!
When a colleague suggested that I try acupuncture to relieve severe tendonitis in my shoulder I was skeptical. Even though I had friends who reported great results from acupuncture in China, I was not convinced that pins, rather than prescription drugs could relieve the pain. After 2 months of treatments I’m now a “reluctant believer”. Dana has been wonderful and her treatments have resulted in the relief from pain that even the prescription drugs failed to deliver. Thank you Dana!
Highly recommend (TEN stars, if I could). Allergies and insomnia.
Dana is an angel. I have been seeing her for over 3 years. I sought her help, initially, during a 6-month bout with hives and continued to see her after the hives disappeared. Acupuncture improved my allergies such that I was able to discontinue (the years of) traditional allergy injections. I continue to see her for general wellness. Dana has a very calming presence and approach. She genuinely cares about my health and wellbeing. Another reviewer said she is a “gem”. She is.
An Excellent Experience
I have been seeing Dana for over 3 years. I have had other Acupuncture experiences, both good and not so good. Dana is the BEST! She’s kind, understanding and very knowledgeable. I have chronic health issues that Dana has been extremely helpful with and my overall health issues have become better since seeing Dana. The treatments are soothing, relaxing and effective. If you haven’t tried acupuncture I highly recommend going to see Dana.
Amazing Experience with Dana! Shoulder Pain.
I recently had my first experience with acupuncture in an effort to relieve an annoying pain in my shoulder. Dana listened to my concerns and designed the treatment accordingly. Not only did she make me feel at ease but her caring and positive attitude towards overall health won me over! After just one session, I am able to move my shoulder without pain for the first time in 6 months. Can’t wait to go back to work on other health related issues! Thank you Dana!!
Dana is amazing! Infertility.
I have been seeing Dana for over a year. I started with her for infertility issues, however, she has treated me for a number of other things (SI pain, stress, shoulder pain, etc.). She is very knowledgeable on all areas of the body and treatments – constantly researching and keeping up to date on all sorts of different topics and ailments. On top of all that, she is sweet, genuine, kind and all around wonderful person!!! She has really made a difference in my life.
Dana was extremely accommodating in scheduling a next-day appointment. She walked me through the basics of acupuncture and ensured I felt comfortable before beginning treatment. She is very knowledgeable about my specific concerns – being past my due date in my pregnancy – and I felt I was in good hands.
Expert and caring approach. Pain relief.
Dana Carruth is a great resource for anyone that might be considering pain relieve but does not want to be on strong drugs. I have a bad back and sciatica. She has helped me stay mobile and keep the pain under control. She is careful, considerate, knowledgeable and the acupuncture does not hurt . I highly recommend her services!
