A Chat with Denise DuPree Acupuncture Clinic
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I specialize in internal medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, and women. Most acupuncturists specialize in pain and muscular problems. With over 15 years experience [that included] spending two years in China in a hospital and clinics, I have had extensive experience with a variety of illnesses, common and uncommon.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I come from a family of western medical doctors and have been around healing all my life. I believe in integrative medicine in order to treat many illnesses we are seeing today. I have worked in many clinics, seen hundreds of patients, [worked] alongside many practitioners, and have gotten great results.
What do you love most about your job?
In this medicine there is no textbook solution. Each person is different and presents their disorders, diseases, or illnesses according to their individual life patterns and how their body, mind, and spirit have reacted to it. When a person walks in, we begin the journey of health and wellness.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback is when a patient begins to see the benefit of Acupuncture and how well they feel. Many patients return because their experience has been so positive and they begin to feel better then they had in a long time.
