most comprehensive, thorough practitioner

“I have been using acupuncture for over twenty years to manage numerous chronic health issues (CFS, arthritis,allergies). Danit is the most comprehensive, thorough practitioner I have encountered. She is truly a healer of gifted proportions.”
– Sonia Maxwell M.S.W.

Excellent Care

“I have been treated by Miss Polunsky. Her intake was excellent. Her diagnosis was excellent. Her needling technique was excellent. I expect she will be of the same character with you. I will engage her at any time I am in need of excellent care.”
– D Bedgood, L.Ac.

nothing short of a miracle

“The acupuncture that I have received from you has been nothing short of a miracle!! When all my labs came back (seven vials, to be exact) and my abdominal ultrasound came back “normal,” my D.O. said that there was nothing wrong. Really?!? But I still had severe pain in my belly. After just a couple sessions with you, the pain began to subside. After a few more, I rarely have any pain at all! The herbs that you prescribed for me are incredible. I feel like I am in my twenties again. Thanks so much for listening to me, for being a friend and for really caring, Danit. I value you more than you’ll ever know and you have given me a quality of life that I have not had for many years……I will be forever grateful! Blessings!”
– Christi Cisek

significant life changes

“Danit and acupuncture not only helped me deal with grief after my husband, and then later my mother, passed, but also helped me make significant life changes. When I first visited Danit for Acupuncture, I rather doubted much would happen, but I was desperate and willing to give it a try. There were times during those early months, when I visited her twice a week, barely holding together because of depression. She questioned, listened, devised a treatment, and sent me home calmer. After the “emergency” passed, we began to work on other areas of my life that were “stuck”. She also provided support before and after a major surgery; support that helped me recover well ahead of the expected time frame. Despite watching it all unfold, I am still astonished that I was recently able to say, “I’ve accomplished all of my objectives.” Depression, in particular, seems to now be a thing of the past. I have the highest respect for Danit’s knowledge of the practice of acupuncture and for her intuitive ability to sense what’s wrong and how to address it. In my experience, if you feel stuck — emotionally, spiritually or physically — she can help. I am so lucky to have found an acupuncturist of her caliber.”
– Connie Williams

She is a joyful and true healer

“After years of intestinal discomfort and/or pain, trying many different healing modalities with little to no relief, and progressively getting worse, on the recommendation of a friend I went to see Danit.
I am not overstating when I say that Danit has changed my life. After a year of mostly bi-monthly treatments, the days I have discomfort and pain are the rare ones, not the norm. For the first time in three years, I’ve been able to gain much needed weight, I’ve added foods back into my diet that I had previously given up on, and I’m back to doing all the things I love to do – hiking, swimming, playing tennis – pain free 95% of the time.
Danit is a master at putting together the pieces of the puzzle – all the various symptoms and how they fit into the bigger picture of overall healing.
Danit’s knowledge, skills, compassion and intuition are helping me to heal from the inside out, and I am immensely grateful. She is a joyful and true healer.”
– Kathi Noaker
