Dr. Damiana Corca, DACM

Founder, Doctor of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine, Sleep Specialist

Dr. Damiana is one of the very few acupuncturists in the country who solely focuses on sleep disorders. After having a general practice for a few years, she gradually shifted her practice towards sleep problems such as insomnia, sleep apnea, nightmares, and other sleep disorders. However, because sleep problems are usually accompanied by symptoms such as pain, anxiety, hot flashes, or fatigue, she treats the whole person, and while the sleep will improve, many other symptoms will as well. She is deeply passionate about helping her patients sleep well again.

Dr. Damiana graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine with a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. She earned her Bachelors degree in Health Sciences and Masters in Oriental Medicine in 2009 from East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida. Dr. Damiana is also a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioners from the Institute for Functional Medicine.

She is is committed to not only helping people sleep well, but also to teaching acupuncture students to treat sleep disorders effectively. She has built the curriculum and has been teaching a specialty topic class on Acupuncture and Sleep Disorders at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder since 2014.

Dr. Damiana is originally from Romania, from a small village called Poiana Marului (Apple’s Valley). She first attended law school at Transilvania University in Brasov and later moved to the United States to attend East West College of Natural Medicine. “Daca dragoste nu e, nimic nu e”, said Marin Sorescu, a Romanian author. It roughly translates to, “If there is no love, nothing is.” When Dr. Damiana was in law school, she found that she lacked the passion and love for the law, but she discovered a new passion and love when she went to Acupuncture College.

Dr. Damiana’s practice is mainly focused on sleep issues, however she also helps people with various health issues, locally or long distance.

Damiana truly worked magic for me. I had been suffering from insomnia for 15 years and had resorted to daily sleep medication just to get a passable number of hours. In just three months working with Damiana, I have completely cut medication out of my nightly routine and am sleeping better than I was with the medication before. Now I have more energy, focus, and general enjoyment each and every day.
