About the Doctor
DAOM, LAc. Board Certified
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!Melanie C.

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.read more
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.
