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 has completed all her course work with the Institute for Functional Medicine and is set to graduate in December of 2019.

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.

I had been struggling for about 7-8 months with my disruptive sleep pattern and was using Ambien to get try and get a full night’s sleep. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and could not fall back to sleep. I started to see Damiana and within 3 sessions, I could tell there was a shift in my sleep pattern. After 8 sessions, I have been able to diminish my use of Ambien to a minimum, before I was having to use it 5-6 nights a week. I am able to stay asleep and I am back to experiencing a deep sleep where I can get back to slumber without having to use medication. I would highly recommend Damiana to anyone who has sleep issues or is looking to have restful sleep without the use of medications.
