As of March 2019, the offices on Jollyville were closed and Dee Ann has been referring her clients to Karen Nunley’s office.  The address and phone number at the top of page are current as of July 2019.  Karen Nunley is the custodian of all of Dee Ann’s client files.

When Dee Ann returns to practice, we will update this page with that information.  Thank you everyone for all the years you trusted Dee Ann with your healthcare.




Dee Ann has provided the Central Texas and Austin area with high quality acupuncture services since she moved here in 1988.  On the forefront of alternative healing therapies, Dee Ann continually updates her education and speaks all over the world about Acu-color therapy…the groundbreaking and highly effective blending of acupuncture and color light therapy to effect change on a cellular level.

Her extensive knowledge and longtime experience give her the edge to help you recover or improve from health concerns such as allergies, asthma, bell’s palsy, child birth concerns, high blood pressure, migraines, stroke symptoms and many more. CALL today.

Along with her mission to provide pain free, professional care to all of her clients, Dee Ann is an environmental activist: working to recycle, reduce, repurpose, reuse, and renew as much as possible within her office and home.  Her office was built as green and chemical free as was possible at the time of building in 2008.
