I used to be terrified of needles and I wasn’t a big believer in Eastern medicine anyway. Only after I bruised my tailbone, and no Western methods were able to help me (every doctor just told me I had to wait it out, until the bruise went away), did I finally agree to go to Dr. Mitra. I felt completely “zenned out” by the time she started the treatment. If I flinched a little, she didn’t say anything, which kept me feeling comfortable. Best of all, the pain in my tailbone immediately started to go away! Ever since this session almost ten years ago, I have been going to Dr. Mitra on and off, whenever something is bothering me, whether it be acne, cramps, joint pain (I play tennis and have mild tennis elbow), anxiety, or irregular menstruation.

I just want to thank Dr. Daneshrad for her genuine , caring concern in my acupuncture treatment. I too was ( and still am afraid) of needle pricks. She also gave me tips on combating my diabetic condition with a plant based diet( I’m cheating not fully following it) very caring doctor.

I started seeing Mitra when my husband and I were looking to start trying for a baby. I had heard the benefits of acupuncture and figured I should give it a shot. Mitra was always kind, welcoming, and reassuring throughout the entire process. She instilled so much confidence into the process of trying, and I truly believe that with her help, we were able to conceive very shortly after. Mitra is very easy to talk to and open up to as well. I would highly recommend her, not only if you are trying to conceive, but also if you have any pain, anxiety, or want to try acupuncture for a variety of reasons.

Thank you for bringing Scarlet into our lives. You were such an integral part of our infertility journey and i can’t thank you enough for getting us through some very challenging times. I’ve enjoyed being able to see you every week for the past year. Hopefully we can do it again for baby #2.

You are a wonderful person and i feel so blessed to have you in my life.


I can’t thank you enough for all your help and guidance.

I’m reluctant to go in for hip surgery until I can get myself back into a healthy balance and I truly believe eastern medicinal approaches will help me get there.

Look forward to seeing you next week!
All the best!


First off, let me say that I am a fan of acupuncture and Eastern medicine already. Today, I just had my first appointment today with Dr. Mitra Daneshrad.  I found her to be insightful, a good listener, with excellent bedside manner, and above all, an amazing practitioner.  I went to her for a variety of issues we are going to address, such as infertility, allergies, and tooth grinding/jaw clenching (TMJ).  She was warm, kind, and has a sense of humor too.  At one point during my treatment she asked gently, “Why so many allergies?” and I said I didn’t know.  She replied, “I’m standing beside you, we will get through this together.” Wow, I feel warm fuzzies just writing that!

I started seeing Mitra on a weekly basis almost a year ago for chronic pain and severe anxiety. She helped me get off my anxiety medication, relieved me from a lifetime of chronic neck pain, and even helped me get pregnant when my husband and I started trying. 

She’s more than an acupuncturist, she’s this calming force that has helped guide me through some very trying times. I highly recommend her to anyone even slightly curious about the benefits of acupuncture. 

She has changed my life.

It is hard to find the words to fully describe the qualities Dr. Mitra brings to the sacred work that she does.  She is knowledgeable, invested, professional, caring and totally and fully committed to finding a pathway to health and well being.  She is deeply entrenched in the process and offers empathy and relief through her work, support, knowledge, and kindness.  She played an integral role in helping us achieve a successful pregnancy against all odds… as she is an absolute expert in the complex world of infertility. Thus, in great part, her work brought us our precious son.


Okay you are magical. I’m convinced you’re a mysterious Persian creature with healing powers haha! 🙂

I just want to say that I just got my period today and usually by this point I have horrible cramps, my period is so heavy I don’t want to leave the house, and I have had at least 4 nights of waking up completely drenched and shivering from night sweats. As of today, I have very minor cramps, my period seems much lighter and I have had absolutely no night sweats! Thank you thank you thank you for your incredible insight and healing! You’re already changing my life! 🙂
