Deb van Latenstein L. Ac., Dipl. O.M.
If you need answers to health concerns or how to improve your overall health Deb can help you understand the issues and explore treatments touching on nutritional, physical, mental & emotional aspects of your lifestyle.
Deb began her journey to natural health and healing during a very busy time in her life. An acupuncture session to treat her back pain helped her realize that her emotions and attitudes toward health were out of balance and her lifestyle was not supporting her body. Taking an opportunity for a change of direction, she studied Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, graduating from Northwestern Health Sciences University, Minnesota. She has been practicing acupuncture since 2005. In addition to her acupuncture sessions, Deb also offers skilled allergy-relief treatments.
