Welcome! I am Dr. Dawn Potter-Balusik. Since 2004, I have been providing natural solutions for a variety of health concerns including pain conditions, women’s health, infertility, endometriosis, anxiety & cancer support to the Clearwater area. It is my joy to help people regain & maintain vibrant health using acupuncture, herbal medicine, cupping, manual therapies & whole-food nutrition.
The World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health have endorsed the use of acupuncture for conditions relating to all systems in the body. And each year more research studies, from the U.S. and abroad, demonstrate acupuncture’s effectiveness for an ever growing list of conditions.
Acupuncture for infertility is one of Dr. Dawn Potter-Balusik’s favorite specialties.
Acupuncture & Oriental medicine can be used alone or in combination with conventional assisted reproductive technologies for both male & female infertility.
A special area of interest for Dr. Dawn Potter-Balusik is acupuncture for endometriosis.
Endometriosis is a gynecological condition that can cause severe pelvic and abdominal pain, excess menstrual bleeding and/or infertility.
Though, at first, you may not think to put acupuncture on your “to do” list when you find out you are pregnant, acupuncture for pregnancy and childbirth is actually a valuable and natural way to help ensure a healthy pregnancy, a smooth delivery and a quick post-partum recovery.
Cancer treatment success rates are increasing due to advancements in cancer treatment. However, the treatments themselves are still very taxing to the body. Acupuncture for cancer support is a wonderful complementary option to help lessen the side-effects, alleviate pain and strengthen the body.
*One year after having total knee replacement I was still experiencing pain. This was affecting my sleep and my ability to carry out day to day activities. I had followed all of the recommended rehabilitation therapy and drug treatment and still not received any relief.
At this point is when I reached out to Dawn to see what options could be afforded by acupuncture. After 4 weeks I was seeing improvements in mobility, reduction in pain, reduction in anxiety related to the pain and improved sleep. I continue to receive treatment once a month. I have drastic improvement.
There has been drastic improvement in my lifestyle, allowing me to return to my normal activities.

*In October of 2006, I was in a car accident and suffered 2 herniated discs in my lower lumbar region. I had been trying for years to get rid of the lower back pain that I was suffering from but to no avail.
*After going through many miscarriages, we went to an infertility specialist. All the numerous tests we did were inconclusive and they couldn’t find out what had been causing the early miscarriages.
