Bio & Credentials

"I have over 23 years of clinical experience helping people improve their health"

It's important to work with someone who has experience and who you can trust. Unlike an online health coach who 

can achieve a certificate in 3-6 months, I have trained, taught, lectured professionals and treated patients for over 20 years. I specialize in acupuncture, nutritional & herbal therapy and dietary education. My primary interest lies in helping those who deal with complex issues that often manifest as digestive, respiratory, sleep, autoimmune and metabolic conditions. My true passion is in learning & teaching people about wellness. I continue to do both. This fall 2020, I will complete my doctorate degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Check out "my story" under the Blogs tab

"I started working with Darlene Easton 3 1/2 years ago, when I was really struggling. I was in the throws of an autoimmune syndrome, respiratory distress and intestinal issues.
Through nutritional guidance, Acupunture, Chinese Medicine and consistent hard work I can say that today I feel really, really good. 

Darlene possesses a wealth of knowledge and is constantly researching and learning in order to bring the very best to her clients. Her comforting, relaxed demeanor and sincere interest in her patients well-being, make her the ideal health care specialist. I recommend her highly".

"It is impossible to convey in words how wonderful Darlene Easton is. She is person-centered, validating, warm, and incredibly intelligent. Darlene has helped me heal chronic issues that other practitioners have dismissed, and I’ve benefitted greatly both from her acupuncture treatment and her vast knowledge of nutrition. She has given me hope and confidence that my body is healing, and will continue to heal. I tell all my friends and family about Darlene!"
