Dana is currently studying Functional medicine and offers programs in elimination diets to work with chronic disease.
Dana studied Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine at Emperors College of Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, and Therapeutic massage at the Swedish Institute in New York City; this 6 year education provided a integral vision of the holistic body and its many layers. At the same time she became certified as a yoga instructor learning even more about the subtle bodies – the energetic, emotional, and spiritual layers.
Dana has completed three journeys to Peru and into the indigenous Shamanic traditions of the Andes. These have led her to the Pnuema System of Education. She is currently immersed in a deep study of the mystical traditions of the earth, which informs her work within medicine as well as the human being whom she is on a moment to moment basis on many levels.
