I am a licensed acupuncturist with more than twenty years experience. I graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture where I did two years of post-graduate study in herbal medicine. I have been on the staff of the Pain & Stress Relief Clinic at the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital, was a staff acupuncturist at the Family Health Alliance, Northampton, and was on the staff at the Alternative Therapies Department at Braintree Hospital. I participated in a study for the treatment of repetitive strain injury by acupuncture which was connected to Cambridge Hospital and was an acupuncturist in a study of the effects of acupuncture on Gulf War Illness. I am dedicated to my patients and to their total overall health and well being. I look forward to talking with you.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
"Before I started my treatments I was on a daily pain killer for my back and was taking two different inhalers for my asthma. Since I have started my treatment with Dinah I have stopeed completely taking pain killers for my back and have only used one type of inhaler once in the last 4 months. I am a retired Military member and am used to an active life style but since my medical issues restricted me from doing the things I liked to do I was very depressed but now I am back to doing light work outs and have been getting my jogging back to where I want to be...Dinah has been a Godsend for me. She listens and gets to the area of concern and has been a warm and caring professional. I don't know where I would be..."
Sam (U.S. Marine Corps, ret.)
"...I began treatments with Ms. Dinah Shatz twice a week in November of 2011 and felt noticeably better in several areas within weeks. Over the course of the next several months we made remarkable progress in most areas. In particular, the serious joint pain and stiffness has almost completely disappeared. I am sleeping better, though not consistently. The muscle spasms and restlessness I was experiencing almost nightly have subsided and are now more the exception than the rule. My energy level is much better, I have better focus at work, and I have been able to consistently exercise again without serious pain or fatigue to interrupt my progress."
Rich (Lt.Col, U.S. Marine Corps, active duty)
"Over the past six months of treatments, I was predominantly being treated for headaches, knee surgery and sleeping disorder. Without a hesitation of a doubt, I can truly say that I benefitted exceptionally from this experience. I have been headache free for the past 2 months. The kneee surgery recovery was expedited through the treatments. My sleeping disorder has vastly changed for the better. I'm able to fall asleep faster and have longer sleep patterns during the evening."
Mark (U.S. Marine Corps, ret.)
"I had to tell you that I feel or my body feels wonderfully light, oiled and bereft of aches & pains. Thanks for the work."
"Dinah's acupuncture treatment on my knee considerably lessened the extreme pain I'd been experiencing. I was so encouraged by the relief I felt ...that I was able to let go of the fear that only a cane and knee surgery were my options."
"I have been a client of Dinah's for several years during which time she has treated my sinus problems, osteoarthritis, a painful condition in my chest as a result of radiation, tight and very sore muscles in my back and neck, and acid reflux. Dinah has helped me enormously and I am forever grateful for the acupuncture treatments as well as the wonderful massage and Reiki, an added bonus."
"I haven't lived in Cambridge since 2004, but every time I come back for a visit, the first thing I do is make an appointment with Dinah. She has the gift, she knows exactly what my body needs and has all the technical skills and the sensitivity of a true healer. She always leaves me feeling better: more relaxed, all my specific aches and tensions attend to, and most important of all, just feeling cared for."
"Thank you for getting some of the kinks out of my shoulders. I've felt taller ever since!"
