Hi, I’m Dana Price, Founder of ilumina, and I want to welcome you to the blog for ilumina Healing Sanctuary. My intention is that this blog be a pathway for information, news and updates, as well as a way for you to get to know us better. We hope that you find it enjoyable and informative.

ilumina is the culmination of a long standing dream. It is the evolution of a practice I started in the summer of 2001. After graduating from Chinese medical school in New Mexico in 1999, I opened a practice in Tucson. While there, I informally interned at the Tucson Medical Center in the labor and delivery department, where I learned as much as I could about pregnancy and birth. During that time, I also developed a relationship with the birth center and taught pregnancy related classes. I provided acupuncture during labor and delivery and treated many women during their pregnancies. This was an invaluable experience and a maturation of my lifelong desire to provide complementary healthcare to women during their reproductive cycle.

In 2000, I moved back to Phoenix, where I was born and raised, to be closer to my family. I accepted a one year position at an established clinic in Scottsdale. When that ended, I again ventured out on my own and created the Southwest Center for Oriental Medicine which became the leading Chinese Medicine center in women’s health. I worked hard to educate the community and its physicians about the safety and benefits of Chinese Medicine. It was during this time that I met Dr. Michael Foley, MD at Phoenix Perinatal Associates. He opened a lot of doors for me in the medical community. Together we petitioned for acupuncture privileges at Good Samaritan and Scottsdale Healthcare Shea. We wanted to gather research on the benefits of acupuncture during high risk pregnancies. And while not granted the privileges we sought, I was able to offer an elective month long study for Ob/Gyn residents at Good Samaritan Medical Center. I also began speaking at medical conferences and publishing in a high risk pregnancy medical textbook. I met with any willing allopathic healthcare practitioner. I was totally committed to spreading the word about Chinese Medicine, and I still am.

Now, I am approaching my tenth year of practice. It’s hard to believe so much time has gone by. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by such gifted healers and physicians and to have supported so many amazing women and couples in their journey to parenthood. I can’t say how fulfilling it is to witness the hope and joy this work can bring to those with reproductive issues, as well as other health issues. I can say now, that my practice has come full circle to my vision. In the details of its design and methods and the complete commitment to patient care, I feel ilumina is the best it can be. I look forward to the future.
