I’d experienced severe insomnia for almost a decade and tried everything, researching constantly. It took a few visits, but the deep calm relaxation created by Damiana during treatments soon translated into better and better sleep. It’s been almost a year now and I’m so much better. Like a miracle!
I decide to go to Damiana after I had tried everything else to get a solid nights rest, even sleeping drugs weren't working. I knew going into this I had to be patient with results. After about 7-8 sessions I noticed that my trend was sleeping through the night more often then not! This felt great, because life without sleep is horrible torture. From session 9 on (first 12 sessions you can get a discount if you buy a 12 session pack) I was sleeping through the night or just limited wake periods; this was huge for me. I continued for another 6 sessions and now I sleep through the night soundly with very limited wake sessions. I would considered this a huge shift! I am extremely grateful for what Damiana has done for me and I would highly and widely recommend her to anyone with sleep issues!
I first visited Damiana to try and get some treatment for long term insomnia in 2014. Previously, I had gone through various treatment protocols to no avail. I was both exhausted and demoralized. Damiana immediately made me feel more calm and relaxed and hopeful about finally getting some sleep. Damiana is incredibly painstaking in getting to the root of sleep problems while always being positive and calm. As well as using acupuncture, she enlists her connections and knowledge to sleuth the possible causes of a sleep problem. Over the last two years my sleep has improved a lot, and I feel calmer and more emotionally balanced. I am a difficult case but Damiana never stopped trying different approaches and investigating alternative options. Finally, Damiana helped me secure an overnight sleep study, which revealed a relatively uncommon sleep disorder. I have never encountered a health profession who shows this much commitment to her patients and practices with such attention to detail. Damiana is also incredibly sensitive, empathetic and compassionate – exactly what someone who is in a state of low sleep needs. Damiana never gave up on solving my sleep problems, even though I had, and I incredibly grateful to her.
Damiana truly worked magic for me. I had been suffering from insomnia for 15 years and had resorted to daily sleep medication just to get a passable number of hours. In just three months working with Damiana, I have completely cut medication out of my nightly routine and am sleeping better than I was with the medication before. Now I have more energy, focus, and general enjoyment each and every day.
