Life is not merely to be alive, but to be well.

~ Marcus Valerius Martial

Welcome to Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center, a health and healing center dedicated to changing your life by helping you to get well, stay well and live well.

My name is Desneige Datillo, founder and medical director of the center, which offers a wide range of alternative medical therapies that target and treat an ever-increasing, broad spectrum of illnesses, imbalances, disorders and diseases.

At our lakeside center in the Boston suburb of Wakefield, Massachusetts, acupuncture, via traditional needle or magnet therapy, has been and continues to be a most effective way or approach to promote healing and balance within the body, as it has for more than 5,000 years.

As with other ongoing advances in the medical field, however, acupuncture also is evolving and continues to introduce new breakthrough modalities and therapies, which are dramatically changing the way that our clinic is able to treat patients with increasing and, at times, extraordinary effectiveness and success.

Each treatment, in its own way, can help to harness your body's natural ability to heal itself and accelerate that process in ways that have never before been possible.

Add new

And, each one, by its own means, has a potential to set you on new paths to attaining your health goals in timeframes that have never before been achievable.

Leading the way for these new treatments and making them possible are what’s known in the medical industry as cold low-level lasers, which signify a substantial, ground-breaking advance in acupuncture therapy by helping to activate and stimulate regenerative physiological processes (at the cellular level) throughout the entire human body.

Our center started using the first generation of these FDA-approved lasers in 2007 for many different conditions such as general and specific pain relief, post-surgical healing, plantar fasciitis, digestive problems, asthma and other respiratory difficulties.

Add new

The new generation of lasers that we are using now is “light years” ahead, so to speak, of the original equipment and the contrasts between and capabilities of the “new” versus “old” technology are quite substantial and significant.

Manufactured in Germany, which, in many ways, is a world leader in medical technology research and development, these lasers are widely used by dentists and physicians throughout Europe when treating patients who, in many instances, have been able to defer or totally avoid the need for medication and/or surgery. Please see the "Conditions Treated” page of this website for a list of the many medical and health problems that we can effectively treat with acupuncture therapy.

In addition to our needle, magnet and laser acupuncture treatments, we also offer several highly-specialized and targeted therapies in the clinic, each of which improve the health, well-being and fitness of patients who have been treated … in some cases with exceptional results.

The first of these therapies is known as Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, which helps to mitigate or eliminate symptoms of allergies and sensitivities to foods and their multitude of naturally occurring or artificially added components or ingredients, prescription drugs, vitamins, fabrics, soaps, detergents, shampoos, molds, pollens, perfumes, animals, insects, dust, and contactants of any type or kind, to name just a few. This technology was developed in Australia, is used worldwide, and I am one of only 50 or so practitioners certified to use it in the United States.

The second of these therapies is Cytokine Therapy, which targets cytokines or cell signaling molecules that aid cell-to-cell communication in the body’s immune responses and activate the movement of cells to problem areas caused by inflammation and trauma, as well as infection. This therapy uses a homeopathic-based approach in the treatment and relief of inflammation and pain associated with many different medical conditions. These conditions include chronic knee, neck and back stiffness and discomfort; osteoarthritis; rheumatoid arthritis; osteoporosis; cartilage damage; tendonitis; fibromyalgia; organ dysfunction (e.g., lung, liver, kidney); anxiety; and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to name just a few. Cytokine therapy also can be used as a stand-alone treatment to repair tendons, ligaments, and bones; reinforce connective tissue; and help to quicken recovery after surgery and promote healing.

The third of these therapies is Zerona® Subcutaneous Fat Reduction Therapy, which also uses cold low-level technology to help people feel better and live better. Zerona is a totally non-invasive, non-surgical approach to losing inches from almost any part of the body, including waist, hips, thighs and chest.

I invite you to visit the other pages of this website for more detailed information about our center, range of therapies and treatments that we offer, and types of medical problems and conditions for which we are able to help provide relief and healing every day … and I encourage you to call our center if you have any questions, would like to receive more information, or to make an appointment for a consultation or treatment.

Good health to you,

In Their Words

I was in constant pain for 17 years before I saw Desneige for treatment. I had four knee scopes and an ACL replacement. When I had my first treatment, I noticed that the swelling had disappeared; I had good range of movement in my knee. I was so happy and pain free. No pain in the knees, back or neck. So far I have had three treatments and I feel 100% better. I never thought I could live without pain. Look into this acupuncture treatment, you won’t regret it.


After my cancer surgery, Desneige treated me for wound healing quickly and successfully with her cold low-level laser therapy, even after the sutures came apart after the first week home. It was a very painful operation and in an awkward area for healing, but that didn’t make it awkward for Desneige or the laser to get to the affected area. My doctors were amazed at my recovery and that the recovery included a cold laser. Every week they would ask if I had gone for my cold laser treatment and they even asked for more information about it. I was very lucky to have both Desneige and the cold laser therapy on my side. I am now completely healed.


I had battled anxiety and panic attacks for as long as I could remember until a friend told me about Desneige and her acupuncture center in Wakefield. I had no idea that acupuncture therapy could help me and others like me with similar conditions. The treatments usually take about 30 minutes and the results have been amazing. I feel a lot better since I started the treatments and hope to cut back or even eliminate my medication soon.
