About Me – Dana LaVoie - Dana LaVoie, LAc

Confused?  Frustrated By Menopause??
That's Why I'm Here

Uncontrollable weight gain and boiling hot flashes, crying one minute and angry the next...

Menopause (or peri-menopause) is here

It's taking over your life

And you're seriously ready to get some relief and feel like yourself again. 

But it can be so hard to know where to start.

When I saw, in my Acupuncture & Herbal practice, the amazing results my clients were getting with Chinese medicine...

And I saw how little menopausal help they were getting elsewhere..

It became my mission to share this with as many women as possible.

Isn’t it time you learned the fastest, easiest, safest ways to balance your hormones?

I'm Dana LaVoie, and I teach women how to use natural remedies to have an easy menopause and experience radiant, healthy aging afterwards.

From the beginning of perimenopause to aging with great health, I’ll show you how to manage mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, dryness (and all the rest.)

Using my strategic fusion of Asian wisdom and modern science, I’ll show you how to get the most relief with the least effort.

My clients are women who know it’s time to start eating right and living healthy.. but they’re having trouble making it happen, OR they don’t know which changes to make to actually get their menopausal symptoms under control.

After working with me, my clients feel like themselves again with menopausal symptoms so minor they don’t get in the way of clear thinking, abundant energy, and feeling vibrant (and gorgeous.) Their weight and overall health settle onto the right track, setting them up for their best health ever in the years to come.

I’ll show you how to make changes that start so easily - you actually do them. Combined with my proven strategies for sticking with them, these changes will not only fit into your lifestyle, they’ll build on each other into a combination so smart and strategic your results, and your relief from menopausal symptoms, will increase exponentially. Everything is SIMPLE, doable, and customizable, and I walk you through every step.

Plus when you work with me you get access to everything I’ve learned from my BA in Eastern Philosophy from Wesleyan University, my Masters in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, 9 years of study with Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden, 4 years of studying Master Tung’s Acupuncture with Susan Johnson, and 14 years of clinical experience as a Licensed Acupuncturist.

Put simply, my clients get results that feel good now and protect their health into the future.

P.S When I'm not working in my home office or seeing patients in the clinic you'll find me hanging out in my Facebook Group Menopause Basics or with my Parker guitar, my dogs, and my husband, Barry. Or I might be cooking or riding my old fashioned cruiser-style bicycle around town.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you better.

The first thing that worked for my PMS & anxiety


JC

I've tried many different remedies to help with mood swings during PMS and also with anxiety. I was hesitant to spend more money and possibly be disappointed yet again, but My mood swings associated with PMS changed drastically with Dana's help.

Before, I would have such a hard time controlling my mood starting 10 days before my period and just assumed the level I was experiencing this at was normal. I've tried many different herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes. I have a steady yoga and meditation practice but none of this seemed to have an affect when it came to PMS.

With Dana's thoughtful recommendations, after 3 months of taking what she prescribed, I can honestly say my life has changed for the better! I feel much more calm before that time of the month, and if I do experience a shift in my mood it is only a few days before my period starts rather than 10, and I am able to respond to whatever arises in a much more controlled way.

I feel like I am in good hands with Dana. She takes the time to really listen to my concerns, to consider a holistic point of view, and has a wealth of knowledge to share! To top it off she has such a kind and warm presence that I feel really comfortable bringing up anything with her.

I would absolutely recommend Dana. Especially for hormone related issues. I feel that there is not enough education for us as women around our cycle and hormones- I know so much more now thanks to Dana!

With Dana, anyone can feel confident that they are in the best care!

Acupuncture & Herbs for Anxiety & Depression


A.N.

Acupuncture with Dana has changed my life! Just before I started acupuncture I had gone through countless drugs trying to get relief form anxiety and depression. The acupuncture and herbs have mellowed me out, and now I no longer yell at my child every day. Yay!:) Thank You!

Oh, and by the way, those pills you gave me worked - my family thanks you!


KS

I'm treating a client for pain in her arm…

She's most of the way through menopause and mostly feeling great, but one day she came in and said…

"All of a sudden my hot flashes are back and I'm so irritable I'm snapping at my husband all day long - I just can't help it!”

So after treating her arm pain with acupuncture, I gave her one of my FAVORITE herbal formulas for all-around menopausal complaints of mood swings + heat + a little dryness. It's called Profound Essence.

And a couple of weeks later - she felt balanced again - no hot flashes and no mood swings. Her hormones just had a menopausal hiccup and needed a little help getting back in balance.

Dana is my gold standard when it comes to acupuncture


JH

I have some nerve damage in my left leg from a disk that ruptured in my low back. After having a number of Acupuncture treatments with Dana I moved out of the area - and even though several years have passed - I still think of how much better I felt because of working with Dana. I've been to several acupuncturists and still, holding Dana as my gold standard, have yet to find anyone who even comes close.

Wow - I understand Yin & Yang for the first time!


MA

Hi Dana. Just finished watching the intro videos. Wow! This is the first time that I understand ying/yang. Great explanation!

I am really looking forward to the rest of the course.
