The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care
of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease
~ Thomas Edison

At Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center, we have one goal and purpose in mind … to help you and your body to heal itself with a range of alternative medical therapies and treatments to help you achieve your best possible health and well-being.

Acupuncture Therapy is the cornerstone of our center, which has been helping patients get well, stay well and live well since 1994.

While traditional needle or magnet acupuncture therapy has been the long-standing treatment of choice for many patients, we now often combine it with several new cold low-level laser acupuncture therapies that have fast-become the preferred course of treatment at our center, which we are proud to say is the only one of its kind in the United States.

Along with a new generation of allergy treatments via non-invasive, needle-free Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, FX 635 Laser and Erchonia® Violet and Red Laser therapies, Cannabinoid Therapy, Cytokine Therapy and NewVision Therapy, our center offers a range of services to help you feel your best in many ways that no other clinic or center can offer anywhere in Massachusetts, New England, or the across the country.


Leading the center is Desneige Datillo, founder and medical director of the Acupuncture and Allergy Center. In addition to her broad knowledge and experience as a highly regarded and sought-after acupuncturist, Desneige is a Registered Nurse (RN) who has worked in emergency rooms and intensive/critical care units at leading Boston-area hospitals.

Desneige also served as Senior Nurse Consultant for eight years at John Hancock Life Insurance Company, where she helped to design and develop a pre-hospital admission review program that started with two nurses and expanded to five national offices employing more than 200 employees. She also performed qualitative and quantitative analyses of care and post-operative treatment outcomes at numerous organ transplant hospitals in the U.S. and developed a network of facilities for the company called “The Centers of Excellence.”
