The private practice of Daria Casinelli, Lic. Ac.

From My Patients:
I have been a patient of Daria’s for two years and cannot say enough good things about her. Daria has helped me tremendously in so many ways and she is as knowledgeable as it gets about the body and its functions. I first sought treatment primarily for seasonal allergies, which had been a major nuisance for me since childhood and all the prescribed medication in the world only contained it. Going back to middle school, even with prescribed medication, some days were so bad that I stayed home from school or even out of work. Since I’ve been getting acupuncture treatment from Daria, I have not had any issues with my seasonal allergies- I also have not taken allergy medication for two years now.
At the time I started seeing Daria, I had also made the decision to stop taking my small daily dosage of anti-anxiety medication (after consulting with my medical practitioner)- a big life choice for me, but the side effects were outweighing the benefits of taking it and acupuncture was among the treatments I sought in helping myself ween off of it- Daria addressed many of the physical and mental aspects of coming off of medication and was really helpful in that adjustment.On another occasion, I was dealing with some minor lower back pain. I told Daria about this and how it came about- after one session where she addressed it, it was gone within a day and has not returned. I still visit monthly and consult with Daria about any number of issues, physical or mental, and she has such a great knowledge base and always has great advice. I have learned a tremendous amount and have really benefited greatly from her treatment. I cannot recommend Daria highly enough.Dan M. Reluctant to try acupuncture a number of years ago, I found myself at Milton Acupuncture for help with neurological and psychological issues I had been dealing with for years using traditional medication to no avail.Daria’s approach is gentle, yet effective.  She is immensely knowledgeable and gifted at her practice, I feel completely at ease with her wide-ranging expertise of matters of the body and its energies.   She has helped me tremendously and even makes time to see me if a sudden illness or migraine comes on for which I need assistance.What’s great about Daria for any new patient, or someone considering acupuncture, she’s very open to just having a talk with you to discuss your circumstances in a comfortable way – I highly recommend her practice. Beth M. Daria is a great asset to have in your life. She can relieve many ailments through acupuncture. I was amazed by the help she gave me when treating IBS. I would recommend a call to Daria if you want to heal your body in a peaceful, relaxing environment and more importantly without taking medications! Laura W.I am a massage therapist who has referred many clients to Daria, and they were very satisfied with their treatments for problems ranging from acid reflux, weight loss, and menopause symptoms. Patricia R.When I was expecting  my second baby, the severe morning sickness (or, more accurately “all day sickness”!) that I had experienced during my first pregnancy resurfaced.  I had hoped to escape this symptom the second time around, but unfortunately it was just as bad. My work this time required that I be on the road much of the day traveling to grocery stores all over MA. However, the constant nausea  and extreme exhaustion threatened to  disrupt my functioning completely.  I was at my wits-end when a relative (who swears by acupuncture for relief from irritable bowel syndrome) suggested acupuncture to me. With my obstetrician’s consent, I decided to give it a try, and was delighted to find Daria Casinelli’s practice right here in Milton.  And it was a find indeed!  Although I knew little about acupuncture, Daria inspired great confidence: she was professional, knowledgeable, a great listener, gentle and calm. After each treatment I felt longer and longer periods of relief from my symptoms. I began to look forward eagerly to my sessions as they were so relaxing and had such a healing impact.  Eventually the morning sickness went away, whether on its own or as a result of the acupuncture, I do not know, but I do know that Daria treatments dramatically reduced my suffering and helped me like nothing else had during either pregnancy, to get through my first 1.5 trimesters. I highly recommend her. A.T.I didn’t know what to expect having never been to an acupuncturist, but Daria took the time to ask me all the pertinent questions regarding my back injury. She made me feel at ease and explained everything to me before starting with any of the treatments. My experience was very relaxing and the results were immediate. I had been to a few chiropractors in the past but the relief is only temporary. I would highly recommend Daria. Steve B.I have worked with Daria Casinelli, licensed acupuncturist, for about a year now.  She is a consummate professional, providing a perfect balance between knowledge in the profession with good, old fashioned intuiton.  She has worked carefully and in concert with other health care professionals on an ongoing health issue – and it has netted positive results!  Ms. Casinelli is also a good listener, which I think is rare in health care circles. I whole heartedly recommend her. Michael M.

Sparkly New Patients; Shiatsu; Women’s Health Workshop

Healthy jewelry stimulates points!

If an acupuncturist has ever taped a press ball in your ear, then you might already know what this picture is all about. Acupuncturists often tape a small ball on auricular points to lengthen the effects of treatments. There are hundreds of acupuncture points in YOUR EAR! I will be offering new patients this new “healthy jewelry” while supplies last. (Existing patients, speak to me when you come in.)


Combined Shiatsu Acupuncture Treatments; $100. Shiatsu is a form of massage done fully clothed on a mat on the floor. Also known as “acupressure” it is a great way to prepare the acupuncture meridians for an acupuncture treatment. These one hour sessions include a light massage and one set of needles.


Women’s Health Workshop: Feeling a bit irritable? On Friday 4/8 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am I will be holding a free workshop on Traditional Chinese Medicine and your menstrual cycle. It will include some very effective things you can do yourself to make your cycle more comfortable/increase your chances of getting pregnant/make it through perimenopause as well as an overview of how Traditional Chinese Medicine could help you. Please let me know if you are thinking of attending. If you cannot attend, I highly recommend Dr. Susan Lark’s PMS Self-Help book, available on Amazon.
