Dustin Siena

Dustin S.

Acupuncturist "Dipl Ac, LAc"

Dustin Siena is a second-generation practitioner of Eastern medicine and acupuncture. His desire to open your heart through a variety of techniques will provide you with exactly the kind of pain-free existence you’ve been seeking.

Dustin didn’t always want to follow in his father’s footsteps. As a child, he received his SAG card for work in commercials, and went to school to become a writer and director, with dreams of becoming the next Francis Ford Coppola. It was his realization that his desire to “create stories that opened the heart” could be achieved through the art of acupuncture that took him out of film and into his father’s world: the world of Chinese medicine.

Now, having practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine for over 10 years, Dustin's motivation comes from his inner passion and love of Eastern medicine and the earth. A typical session will begin with a pulse reading that helps reveal the integrity of your internal organs and their respective vitality or deficiency.

The acupuncture treatment comes next, which will address your individual body, spirit and constitution. During many sessions, Eastern philosophy is discussed as well as other integral lifestyle habits that optimize your acupuncture treatments, such as diet and herbal remedies.

For Dustin, acupuncture is a practice of connections, whether done verbally or through the therapy. After someone feels his or her first energetic revelation from an acupuncture treatment, it's an aha, cathartic-like moment from which there is no turning back.
