At Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Care , 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 have been the long-standing treatments of choice for many patients, we now often combine it with several laser 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.

These therapies include LightNeedle Laser, Auricular (Ear) Laser, Blood Laser, and LaserPen Therapy, Erchonia® Violet and Red Laser, and the FX 635 Laser which, itself, is producing groundbreaking results in the treatment of some patients with chronic low back pain, plantar fasciitis, concussion syndrome, and traumatic brain injury.

Along with these highly effective therapies, we also offer allergy treatments via non-invasive, needle-free, computer-based Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT), which can be highly effective in providing long-term relief of many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. Developed and created after 16 years of clinical research, AAT does not rely on the use of medications, herbal remedies, or supplements of any kind and it is available to patients of all ages, including infants.

In addition, our center offers Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy, which is a painless and non-invasive treatment technique that uses FDA approved technology to generate and deliver 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.

Also, we offer Bio-Well Electro-Photonic Imaging, which was developed and designed to assess the energetic state of a person, including overall levels of stress and vitality, as well as a potentially corresponding presence or existence of possible illnesses and imbalances.

If you are seeking ways to feel better or look better, live well and stay well, Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Care offers a range of services to help you or someone you know in many ways that no other center or clinic can offer anywhere in Massachusetts, New England, or the across the United States.

In Their Words

Helping your body to heal itself and moving your life toward its natural state of wellness is the most important goal of the therapies and treatments that we offer at Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Care.

Together with traditional needle or magnet Acupuncture Therapy, which has been a keystone of our center since it opened 25 years ago, and a variety of equally impressive laser acupuncture treatments, as well as Advanced Allergy Therapeutics and Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy, our patients are achieving their health and wellness goals in ways and timeframes that continually impress and often amaze them.

But, don’t take our word for it … below are just a few comments by patients about the treatments that they’ve received at our center … in their own words:

I have had COPD for many years and struggled with shortness of breath and feelings of constant weakness and exhaustion, which has made it difficult for me to enjoy many family gatherings and holiday celebrations. Desneige recommended treatments with Frequency Specific Microcurrent and after just a few sessions, I truly can’t believe the improvements in my energy levels, stress relief, and mental clarity. The differences are incredible and I actually was able to help my daughter prepare Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in more than 15 years. FSM treatments have changed my life.
~ Diane

For at least the past 10 years, I have been dealing with carpal tunnel in both of my wrists, but mostly in the right one. Many nights, the ache and numbness has been so bad that it would prevent me from getting a good, restful sleep. That’s all changed now since Desneige began treating my carpal tunnel with her new Frequency Specific Microcurrent therapy. After just a few treatments, the constant pain and tingling has, incredibly, all but disappeared, I’m not wearing a brace on each wrist any more, and I’m getting a good night’s sleep for the first time in many years. Hallelujah!
~ Heather

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.
~ Gail

I have been under treatment by Desneige Datillo, Acupuncturist and Allergy Specialist, for several years and have had exceptional results. In regard to the allergies, I have been told by many allergists that I am extremely allergic to many things, including foods and spring and fall allergens. Her treatment has alleviated many of these very acute symptoms to the extent that no other treatment is necessary during the heavy seasons.

She also has helped me with my Macular Degeneration, which I have in the right eye only. Her acupuncture treatment also improved my vision in just five months. Near vision has improved almost 100% and far vision is much improved. Driver’s license has been restored. Glasses are still necessary but I drive with my impairment.

~ Billie

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.

~ Jerome

I highly recommend the allergy treatments offered at Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Care. I had suffered from seasonal allergies my entire life and gone through the tests and treatments recommended by an allergist at a local hospital. I was using nasal steroids for over ten years.

After receiving a few treatments from her, it was the first time in my life that I did not need any medication and years later I am still doing great. It has been life changing for me to be outside, to be able to open my windows at home and in the car … even to clean pollen off of my porch without the runny nose, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, and congestion that my allergies used to cause.

The allergy treatments that she performs are totally painless, which means no scratch tests and no needles, and Desneige is a real pleasure to work with.

~ Roberta

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.

~ John

After my cancer surgery, Desneige treated me for wound healing quickly and successfully with her 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 it involved the use of a laser. Every week they would ask if I had gone for my laser treatment and they even asked for more information about it. I was very lucky to have both Desneige and the laser therapy on my side. I am now completely healed.

~ Mary

I have had two great healing experiences with Desneige. She is the consummate, caring, and skilled professional. She works in a holistic and powerful way and gets results. Her acupuncture and magnets healed my trigger finger in a series of visits. After two years with Achilles tendonitis, she also got me back to 50% ability after only one laser treatment. I am now at 100% capability running daily with huge mileage.

~ Richard

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.

~ Dan

Since I began seeing Desneige a few months ago for my irritable bowel problems, my symptoms have been greatly reduced and almost disappeared. The relief she has given me with the blood laser treatments is indescribable. Best of all, I no longer fear traveling or going out to dinner or to parties with my friends. I am finally able to live a normal life again!

~ Emily

I have known Desneige in a professional capacity for many years. Over that period of time, I have been a patient for a number of medical issues. My personal approach to my health care had been to blend traditional Western medicine and Eastern Medical Treatments. For example, acupuncture treatments by Desneige considerably reduced my post-operative pain from disc surgery and lessened the recovery time. Treatments for other problems have been equally successful, including treatments to balance my emotional health. Desneige continues to obtain cutting edge training and technology that benefits her patients.

~ Edward

I had serious burning pain in my hip due to bursitis. This condition left me unable to enjoy walking or working out at the gym for any length of time. I have been through all phases of therapy. I started with the orthopedic doctor, then physical therapy and then cortisone injections. Nothing seemed to help. I heard about Desneige and her laser acupuncture treatments through a friend who had been to see her for help with her migraine headaches. I was a bit skeptical. I had never heard of laser therapy, especially for my pain. I went to one visit and was very surprised at the relief I had from the burning sensation in my hip. On my second visit, I was so much better and able to go for a long walk. On visits three and four, I got full relief. Desneige helped me so much and is always trying her best to help people in pain.

~ Diane

I avoided breakfast cereals and breads for years because of the stomach discomfort that often would follow after eating them. Not anymore. After you diagnosed my sensitivity to wheat with the Advanced Allergy Therapeutics and following a dozen or so treatments, my sensitivity and reaction have totally disappeared. Now, this therapy is helping my wife with her allergies to tree pollen. The results so far have been as amazing for her, too. Thank you, Desneige.

~ Tom

For many years, I suffered with sinus problems and headaches that bothered me throughout the year. Then a friend of mine told me about Desneige and her new allergy therapy that detects and treats allergies and sensitivities without painful needles and shots. That’s all I needed to hear to make an appointment to see her … and I am very happy that I did. She found that I had a high sensitivity to many different kinds of tree pollen and mold, certain vitamins, and dogs and cats. I am now allergy and sensitivity free … and sinus problem and headache free … completely. What a relief!

~ Frances

About 10 years ago I had a very bad reaction with pineapple. Yes, pineapple; people used to think I was crazy. I found a lot more things had pineapple in it than I ever knew. Fast Forward years later, I met Desneige and she has changed my life with a combination of acupuncture and allergy treatments.

Desneige told me that she could help, told me what she would do, and that someday I would be able to eat pineapple again. I thought to myself this can’t be true. How can I be allergic to something one day and then finally be able to eat it again? Well she made it happen!

I doubted it at first but realized “If I don’t try, I’ll never know.” So off on the journey I went. After three allergy treatments and for the first time in 10 years, I ate fresh pineapple … reaction free. And, yes, the first bite was the scariest thing I’ve done knowing what had happened in the past whenever I ate it. If anyone thinks they have a food allergy or sensitivity, or not sure if they do, they definitely should go see Desneige. They won’t be disappointed.
