Donna Huber is a Diplomate of Acupuncture (Dipl.Ac.) and Diplomate of Chinese Herbal Medicine (Dipl.C.H.) certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM.org). She received her four-year Master of Science in Chinese Medicine in 2002 while living in Santa Fe, NM. Donna also completed a clinical internship in China at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of Nebraska.
Donna came to study Chinese medicine during her own struggle with fertility. It was her OB/GYN in Santa Fe who suggested she turn to acupuncture, saying, “I have no idea how it works, I just know that it works!” Donna and her husband began receiving acupuncture treatments, taking Chinese herbs, and making major lifestyle changes. With commitment and discipline, their health and overall well-being began to improve exponentially. As she became enlightened and empowered by her own health and wellness, Donna soon realized that she needed to help others to take charge of their bodies and their health! Through a difficult and painful path, she experienced a shift in focus that led her to attend Chinese Medical School and emerge as a new being. Donna gave birth to Thirteen Moons Acupuncture in February 2003.
Donna is a qualified practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine with special training in female and male reproductive health. Donna has worked extensively with Dr. Randine Lewis, author of the bestselling book The Infertility Cure. In addition to specializing in reproductive health, Donna also focuses on digestive health, emotional health, stress reduction, and acute and chronic pain management. She has been studying Human Mind, Body and Spirit for 53 years and loves to teach people how to take care of and be responsible for themselves!
Donna lives in Omaha, NE, with Tracy, her husband of 21 years, and their dog, Jasper. Donna loves being outside in nature, gazing at the stars with her telescope and spending time on self-improvement. When not running her business and seeing her beloved patients, she can be found in her hammock devouring classical Chinese medicine texts, or tapping away on the computer, writing her life story.
A Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) has typically obtained a three- to four-year Master’s-level degree or diploma from a school approved by ACAOM (Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine) and is awarded the Dipl. Ac. (Diplomate in Acupuncture) upon successful examination by the NCCAOM (National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine), the national standard used for licensing in most states. For a list of approved schools and colleges for acupuncture training, contact the U.S. Department of Education, the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, or the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Acupuncture should only be administered by a practitioner who has specific training in this field, due to risk of improper needling, inadequate understanding of Eastern Medical diagnostic procedures (such as tongue and pulse diagnosis), transmission of disease, or ethical violations.
