He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything ~ Thomas Carlyle

Welcome to Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Care, a health and healing center that is dedicated to improving the quality of your life and devoted to helping you get well, live well, and stay well.

My name is Desneige Datillo, founder and medical director of the center, which offers a wide range of alternative medical therapies that help to assess, target, and treat a broad spectrum of illnesses, imbalances, disorders, diseases … and more, including post-Covid 19 or “long-haul” symptoms and conditions such as headaches, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), “foggy brain,” cough, shortness of breath, joint pain, and fatigue.

Located in the Boston suburb of North Reading, Massachusetts, our center specializes in Acupuncture Therapy and Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT), both of which can provide relief of health problems and conditions that may be restricting or limiting your activities of daily living and the ability to enjoy your life.

Acupuncture Therapy, performed via traditional needle or magnet, has been the mainstay of our center since 1994 and continues to be a most effective way or approach to promote healing and balance within the body, as it has for at least 4,000 years.

As with other ongoing advances in the medical field, however, acupuncture also has evolved with the introduction of new modalities and technologies, which are dramatically changing the way that we are able to treat patients with increasing and, at times, extraordinary effectiveness and success.

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

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 acupuncture treatments and making them possible are what’s known in the medical industry as low-level lasers, which can help to activate and stimulate regenerative physiological processes (at the cellular level) throughout the entire human body.

Our center was among the first to use these FDA-approved lasers beginning in 2007 for many different conditions such as plantar fasciitis, post-surgical healing, digestive problems, asthma, and other respiratory difficulties or problems.

Since then, we have continued to treat an increasing number of health problems via laser technology, which includes the LightNeedle Laser, FX 635 Laser, Erchonia® Violet and Red Laser, Auricular (Ear) Laser, and LaserPen.

Each of these lasers has the potential to provide life-changing relief of many conditions often associated with acute or chronic inflammation, pain, and discomfort. (Please see Therapies & Treatments section for more information). In addition to our needle, magnet and laser acupuncture treatments, we also specialize in Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT), which uses a unique and highly effective approach in treating a wide range of symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities among adults and children of all ages, including infants.

A clinically proven, precision-based therapy, AAT merges 21st century-science with  traditional and time-honored acupuncture principles to offer an effective alternative that can produce rapid relief and long-lasting results.

The key to AAT’s effectiveness is its focus on the body’s organ systems (not its immune system) that are involved in allergic or sensitive reactions to substances, which often include naturally occurring or artificially added components or ingredients typically consumed, inhaled, or touched every day. These include a range of substances or items such as cheese, fruit, wine, beer, eggs, chocolate, grains, berries, prescription drugs, vitamins, fabrics, soaps, detergents, shampoos, molds, pollens, perfumes, animals, dust, and contactants of any type or kind, to name just a few.

Because AAT therapy is a computer-generated, software-based treatment of allergies and sensitivities, it is totally non-invasive and needle-free, does not involve the use of medications, herbs, or supplements, and is quite different from traditional allergy tests and treatments, which can include painful scratch or intradermal tests and shots or injections. (Please see Advanced Allergy Therapeutics section for more information).

Our focus on the health and well-being of patients also includes needle-free Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy, which uses FDA approved technology to deliver painless low-level (i.e., micro-amperage) electrical current and the resonance of frequencies to promote healing and balance in the body by reducing inflammation, improving circulation, repairing tissue, and relieving pain.

Our center is the only one of its kind in Massachusetts and New England to offer this powerful healing tool in conjunction with traditional needle and laser acupuncture therapies, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, and Bio-Well Electro-Photonic Imaging to help improve the quality of your life.

A partial list of conditions that can be effectively treated with FSM include: Anxiety, Arthritis, Asthma, Back / Neck Pain, Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Gout, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Headaches, Myofascial Pain, Osteoarthritis, Plantar Fasciitis, Scar Tissue, Sciatica, Sinusitis, Sports Injuries, TMJ, and Wound Healing. (Please see Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy section for more information).

At Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Care, our focus always has been to help you and your body to activate or elevate its natural self-healing ability and our purpose always will be to help you get well, live well, and stay well.

I invite you to visit the pages of this website for more detailed information about Acupuncture Therapy, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics, and Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy and the many other therapies and treatments that we offer … as well as Bio-Well Electro-Photonic Imaging to help identify weaknesses in the body’s energy field … 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.

Best health to you,

Therapies & Treatments

Here are some of the ways we may be able to help you – or someone you know – to get well, live well, and stay well!


Acupuncture emphasizes an integrated or “whole body” approach to the prevention and/or treatment of numerous illnesses, imbalances, disorders, and diseases.


Effective on musculoskeletal, nerve, and inflammation conditions; wound healing; sports injuries, and a range of emotional imbalances and more.


This new needle-free therapy uses low-level electrical current to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing of the body in life-changing ways.


This therapy can be a “game changer” for patients with plantar fasciitis and chronic, as well as acute, pain in the lower back, neck, and shoulders.


AAT is a non-invasive, needle-free, no-medication, no-supplement therapy for treating reactions associated with 300,000 or more different allergies and sensitivities.


Bio-Well Electro-Photonic Imaging helps to identify areas of the body that indicate an abnormality in the energy supply in one or more of its organs and systems.

I was in constant pain for almost 20 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.


I have experienced remarkable results with your laser acupuncture treatments. I was in trauma following a serious fall and the doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital allowed Desneige to treat me in my room. I believe it had a major impact on my recovery. Prior to that, I was experiencing severe pain in my legs and Ms. Datillo’s laser treatment gave me noticeable, almost immediate relief.


You have been a life saver for me. My pinched nerve problems, my lower back, my hamstring issues, all addressed and solved quickly and professionally. I recommend you to all of the people I come in contact with who are complaining about physical issues. You are the best.


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. I had no idea that acupuncture therapy could help me and others like me with similar conditions. The treatments usually take about 45 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.
