Acupuncture in Center City, Philadelphia, PA

Compassion and Healing in a Welcoming Setting

Donna Greenberg, L.Ac., Dipl.Ac., M.Ac.

For my patients in Bucks and Montgomery counties, please note that I have closed my Warminster office, effective the end of February 2018, since I moved my residence to Center City. I welcome you to my new location, which is easy to reach by car or public transportation.

Welcome and thanks for visiting!  Throughout my 20+ years in practice,  I’ve successfully helped men and women of all ages to heal their body, mind, and spirit.  I’ve treated patients with many conditions, including:  depression, anxiety & stress; cancer support; cosmetic acupuncture; insomnia & fatigue; menstrual & menopausal difficulties; allergies, asthma & sinus issues; eating disorders; digestive, bowel, & bladder problems; back, neck & joint pain; headaches & migraines; sciatica, arthritis, carpal tunnel, TMJ & fibromyalgia; dizziness; Bell’s Palsy; and a depleted immune system. My goal is to help you resolve your health issues, empower you, and even transform your life so that you feel healthy, vigorous, and fulfilled.  I work in a soothing healing arts office in Center City, Philadelphia, convenient to the SEPTA Regional Rail Line and buses.

donna-straighthairIt is an honor to serve my patients, and I provide them with the time and personal attention they need.  I approach each person with compassion and listen carefully to his or her concerns.  Patients also comment on my gentle needling technique.

Patients suffering with pain will welcome my use of the Balance Method, which provides quicker and more long-lasting benefits than other styles of acupuncture.

As a breast cancer survivor, I understand the fears and challenges that people face when they receive a diagnosis of cancer.  I am committed to helping these patients improve their quality of life while they are going through traditional medical treatments.

If you have a condition that has not responded to medication or surgery, or if you simply seek a safe, less invasive solution with virtually no side effects, acupuncture may be your answer.  It’s been used for thousands of years and is painless and effective for many health problems.  Acupuncture also helps you maintain wellness, even if you don’t have any medical issues.

I am trained in Five Element Acupuncture, the most holistic and ancient form of Chinese Medicine. Its special diagnostic methods help me determine your basic constitutional element, so that I can create a unique treatment plan for you.  We will work at a deeper level than just addressing your symptoms, and this leads to better results and helps you stay healthy throughout the changing seasons.

Five Element Acupuncture is also a valuable support to people going through major life decisions and changes.  If this is your situation, I’ll teach you how to find strength, balance, and harmony in your life; to “feel more like yourself”; to replenish your energy; and to experience calmness, optimism, joy, and peace.

In addition to acupuncture, I provide nutrition and lifestyle counseling, and I use techniques such as:  moxabustion; Guasha; cupping; Korean hand therapy; and essential oils, to enhance your treatments.

While acupuncture originated in China long ago, it is truly body/mind/spirit medicine for people living in  the 21st century in the United States.

Physical Aspects of The Heart

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the heart is the organ most closely linked to emotion. Think about all the terms we use every day to describe our state of mind: “heartsick,” “heartbroken,” “heartache” The heart is not the director of subtlety; the emotions it encompasses seem to always be on the far end of the spectrum, either extreme sadness or extreme
