about danielle burke

Dr. Danielle Burke has received her Master’s Degree and Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California. During that time, she volunteered at the Venice Family Clinic as a licensed acupuncturist to underserved patients while working with Western medical doctors to customize patient treatment plans. This experience inspired her to become a patient advocate and to bring Eastern medicine to the forefront of Western medical care.

Currently, Dr. Burke is using her Doctoral research to head a clinical case series with the use of neuro-acupuncture in the relief of phantom limb pain in Veteran amputees. Through her nonprofit, the White Aspen Research Foundation, she is motivated to develop a first-line treatment protocol for phantom limb pain to replace the use of opiates for this condition. Her expertise in the integration of Eastern needling techniques with Western neuroscience bridges the gap for idiopathic conditions such as phantom limb pain.

Dr. Burke’s private practice includes personalized healing sessions that combine Chinese medicine theory, energy healing, and sound therapy. Her sessions may include acupuncture, cupping, herbal formulas, moxibustion, tuning fork therapy, singing bowls, gemstones, Pranic Healing, and spiritual guidance. She believes food is medicine, so nutrition plays an important role in her treatment recommendations. Exercise is also essential in keeping the body in optimal balance. Dr. Burke prefers Kriya yoga which incorporates movement and breathwork to harness her newfound gifts of her Spontaneous Kundalini Awakening.

Dr. Burke also practices Esoteric Acupuncture, which is an acupuncture of the Spirit. It balances the chakra system and focuses on facilitating one’s Spiritual Awakening, the beginning of a merging with one’s Heart Spirit path. 

Dr. Burke is originally from the east coast, but has spent the last 15 years enjoying California sunsets. When she’s not in a healing session, she enjoys paddle boarding, beach camping, tennis, skiing, cooking organic meals, and playing chess.
