Daniel Hengsbach


Daniel has been practicing as an Acupuncturist and Herbalist since 2007. He has always been intrigued by the philosophy and the practice of traditional Chinese Medicine. His style of acupuncture is constantly evolving as he learns from other practitioners, teachers, and his own experiences with clients about what can benefit health and well-being. The roots of Chinese medicine involve uncovering and treating the underlying disease and the individual signs and symptoms that are expressed by our individual internal environment which is the key to long-lasting results. Daniel feels that in this era of mental stress, pollution, dietary possibilities, and intense technological change, Acupuncture, and Chinese Medicine have a solid role to play in helping people adapt and cope with the different stresses placed upon their bodies.
