Below are the wonderful integrative practitioners that are sharing space with Harmony Holistic
Dana Scarton is a licensed acupuncturist whose main interest lies in helping her patients achieve their greatest potential in terms of physical, emotional and mental health. She employs acupuncture and, if applicable, dietary, meditative, and movement advice to help patients attain balance in mind and body, or homeostasis. Homeostasis is true balance; it is the state in which all humans function most effectively.
Acupuncture is a wonderful stand-alone or adjunct treatment for acute and chronic conditions, from migraines and depression to gynecological disorders. The medicine can also treat insomnia, digestive issues, sinus and nasal congestion, anxiety/stress, arthritis, fatigue, joint and muscle pain, and a host of other conditions.
Dana has studied the Balance Method, which provides a means to treat pain without needling into the painful region. She is certified in performing facial rejuvenation acupuncture and cupping. She holds a master’s degree in acupuncture from Maryland University of Integrative Health.

Her certifica-tions includeYoga para el Alma (Yoga of the Soul – Costa Rica), Reiki, Thai Massage and is currently studying Ayurvedic Medi-cine. Her past transformative work and mental health background fused with acupuncture when she began her own healing pro-cess. In this transformation, she found the simplicity and deep healing that acupuncture offers; which is what led her to become an Acupuncturist.
She received her Master’s in Acupuncture at Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly TAI SOPHIA), and recently com-pleted her Doctorate in Acupuncture. Her ability to connect with her patients and to find the root cause of their dis-ease is scientif-ically grounded in current Integrative Medicine research.

Armeta Dastyar believes that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are the gateway to a peaceful, fulfilling life. She specializes in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and is an Usui Reiki Master.
Her exploration of eastern medicine started by seeking relief for her own ailments. Having years of ankle problems, she decided to turn to acupuncture for aid. It was through this that she not only found support for her ankle, but she also gained a feeling of being more awake and attuned to the world around her. This has sparked Armeta to bring this awakening to all her clients, providing them medicine to allow them to thrive in every aspect of their lives.
Her education began with Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Psychology. Armeta then studied eastern medicine by becoming a Usui Reiki Master. Later, she continued her educational journey and earned two Masters degrees and a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Maryland University of Integrative Health, formerly Tai Sophia.
Armeta brings compassion to each and every client, treating each individual uniquely to reach his or her full potential. She uses energy work in combination with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to treat a wide variety of conditions including pain management, woman’s health, depression and anxiety. She helps women conceive naturally or in combination with reproductive technology.
Wherever you are in life, she will be there to support you and help you grow to your full potential.
