ABOUT DIANE

Diane Lowry, Licensed Acupuncturist

After completing her bachelor's degree in 1996, Diane began quietly pursuing an interest in alternative and complementary medicine. Self study led to weekend workshops and intensive retreats on topics ranging from aromatherapy to reflexology. After suffering from a car accident in 2002, Diane turned to acupuncture for relief. It worked and a seed was planted.


In 2005, Diane left her full time job in advertising to attend graduate school in acupuncture and oriental medicine. Since then, she has practiced in integrative care facilities, nursing homes, and traditional acupuncture clinics. Currently, Diane maintains her own private practice in Glen Allen, VA. Combining Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory with a gentle needling technique, Diane welcomes new patients who may feel their case is difficult or that they lack options to improve their health and well-being.


In addition to traditional body acupuncture, Diane incorporates scalp acupuncture, auricular (ear) acupuncture, electrical stimulation, microcurrent facial rejuvenation, reflexology, cupping, and gua sha; as well as, Chinese bodywork and herbal therapy to further enhance treatment success.
