Mitra Daneshrad

DAOM, LAc. Board Certified

Mitra Daneshrad is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine with over 14 years of successful practice in the field of natural, holistic medicine. Dr. Mitra Daneshrad was awarded her doctoral degree from Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a specialty in women’s health and reproductive medicine. Her areas of expertise within that specialty include fertility, pregnancy, postpartum support, and menopause support. Dr. Mitra works closely with reproductive endocrinologists and gynecologists to support the best integrative care possible for her patients going through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and other fertility treatments. With her extensive training and experience, Mitra also specializes in pain management and orthopedic medicine. She works collaboratively with orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and chiropractors.

She has expanded her specialties to include emotional health in order to bring a holistic approach to her patients’ well being. With her passion for natural healing, Dr. Daneshrad devotes to working with her patients, empowering them on their path to optimal wellness.



A central tenant of Dr. Mitra’s practice in Chinese medicine and acupuncture is that “there is no such thing as infertility.” Many factors can cause difficulty in conception, but once those factors have been overcome and the body is restored to full health, the chance of conception increases. The aim of acupuncture is to help both women and men overcome these factors.

Women’s Health

Your monthly symptoms can be treated by acupuncture to lessen their severity. Less common conditions can also benefit from acupuncture treatments.  Many women have found that acupuncture alone has helped to regulate their cycle, which in turn has balanced their internal system and led to overall better health.


Once you are pregnant, acupuncture can support you through this important time in your life from emotional to physical issues. It will assist in creating a nurturing environment for you and your baby, so you can carry your child to term.

Emotional Health

People tend to neglect how they feel or cope with their daily stressors. Acupuncture can lower stress and anxiety, so you can face daily life challenges with ease, and bring balance to your mind, body and spirit. You can be at your best when your emotions are as well taken care of as your body.

Pain Management

Acupuncture has long been used as a method of coping with physical pain. With an increase in blood circulation, a reduction in inflammation, the relaxation of your muscles, and a release of endorphins, we can assist your body in healing itself.


A physician’s presence and attention to detail is the most important thing to me when seeking out a practitioner of any kind. That is why I go to Dr. Mitra Daneshrad. I used to be terrified of needles and I wasn’t a big believer in Eastern medicine anyway. Only after I bruised my tailbone, and no Western methods were able to help me (every doctor just told me I had to wait it out, until the bruise went away), did I finally agree to go to Dr. Mitra. After learning I was afraid of needles, Dr. Mitra didn’t dismiss the validity of my nervousness with a simple, “Oh it’s nothing, it doesn’t hurt, you’re over reacting.” She was very understanding of my fear and instead of dismissing it, helped me find a way to cope with it. She gave me a relaxing massage and created a very soothing mood in the office, with her music and incense. I felt completely “zenned out” by the time she started the treatment. If I flinched a little, she didn’t say anything, which kept me feeling comfortable.
Best of all, the pain in my tailbone immediately started to go away! Ever since this session almost ten years ago, I have been going to Dr. Mitra on and off, whenever something is bothering me, whether it be acne, cramps, joint pain (I play tennis and have mild tennis elbow), anxiety, or irregular menstruation. Dr. Mitra has helped me keep my body and mind, and therefore my life, in balance.

First off, let me say that I am a fan of acupuncture and Eastern medicine already.

Today, I just had my first appointment today with Dr. Mitra Daneshrad.  I found her to be insightful, a good listener, with excellent bedside manner, and above all, an amazing practitioner.  I went to her for a variety of issues we are going to address, such as infertility, allergies, and tooth grinding/jaw clenching (TMJ).  She was warm, kind, and has a sense of humor too.  At one point during my treatment she asked gently, “Why so many allergies?” and I said I didn’t know.  She replied, “I’m standing beside you, we will get through this together.” Wow, I feel warm fuzzies just writing that!

Nutrition and fertility

Nutrition and Fertility are more inextricably entwined than you may initially think. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) different foods are categorized into temperature categories based on how they interact with your body: cold, cooling, neutral, warming, and hot. When attempting to become pregnant, you should seek foods that are “warming.”

Are You Ready To Be a Mother?

Motherhood is a gift that will change your life forever. Trying to become a mother is a serious and challenging step in a woman’s life that demands a kind of self-awareness that is almost sacrificial. You must assess yourself in your entirety (mentally, emotionally, and physically) to see if you are ready to hold the responsibility and honor of creating another life. As Daoshing Ni writes in his book The Tao of Fertility, “Too often we move through life on automatic pilot, unaware of the changes taking place around – let alone within – us.

Treating Depression with Acupuncture

Depression affects more people than we like to think. It is one of the most common illnesses. Almost everyone will experience depression at least once in their lives.
