Dr. Dana Price DOM, Dipl. OM, L.Ac., President and Fellow ABORM

“My vision for ilumina is to offer women a complete and life-changing array of complementary therapies in a setting where they feel heard and cared for in a deep, personal way. We understand that when a woman comes in, especially for reproductive issues, she needs support on many levels.”

Dr. Dana Price is a trailblazer in the field of East Asian medicine especially in the state of Arizona. With acupuncture license number 2 she helped establish the medicine in the state and served on the licensing board for many years. She also helped found and is a current board member and fellow with the ABORM: The Acupuncture and TCM Board of Reproductive Medicine which has grown to be an international organization. She is state and nationally board-certified to practice Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes the modalities of acupuncture, biomedicine and Chinese Herbal Medicine. Dana received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona before graduating as valedictorian with a four-year postgraduate Masters of Science in East Asian Medicine from the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in New Mexico.

Her clinical studies were completed with an internship in gynecology and Chinese Herbal Medicine at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Sichuan, China. Dana made a commitment early on to specialize in the treatment of women’s health — specifically fertility enhancement and pregnancy-related disorders. She has collaborated with many reproductive endocrinologists, obstetrician gynecologists, and perinatologists and is a sought-after teacher and nationally renowned expert in her field.

Dana continues to stay on the leading edge of Chinese Medicine and fertility care, regularly studying in the U.S. and abroad. She has published and lectured extensively on women health topics.

A native Phoenician growing up in the Biltmore area, Dana has been in private practice since 1999. She has served as secretary, and more recently voted in as a Board Director of the ABORM.  She was also a member of the Arizona State Board of Acupuncture Examiners and the Arizona Society for East Asian Medicine and Acupuncture. She has been a faculty member at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture.

Dana holds current membership in the American Pregnancy Association, Resolve, and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. As a leader and innovator in her field, Dana has been featured on Sonoran Living, Your Life A to AZ, local news stations, Conceive magazine, Natural Health magazine, Alternative Medicine magazine, the Arizona Republic and the Scottsdale Tribune.

When away from the clinic, Dana spends her time nurturing her two girls, meditating and journeying the path of the Bodhisattva, communing with nature, and exploring the diverse cultures of the world. She is also an avid athlete racing triathlons, swimrun, open water, and trail races and enjoying the nurturing practice of yoga.
