Diane’s Bio

Diane’s Bio

As a natural healthcare provider and wellness educator, licensed acupuncturist Diane Huey has spent much of her life seeking practical tools to bring the freedom and joy of good health to others.


As an undergrad art student in the 70’s, Diane was distressed when her family members succumbed to what she felt were preventable diseases. Searching for ways to help, she came across the writings of health food pioneers Adele Davis and Dr. Paavo Airola as well as the culture and tradition of soy foods in Japan.

This experience led her to open Four Directions Soy Crafters where for five years she produced organic tofu and other soy foods and worked to raise public awareness of the ecological and health benefits of soy.

A study of shiatsu and other bodywork therapies in California and New York gave Diane more tools to unlock the body’s natural energy and vitality. During this time she became an acupuncture patient and was amazed at the relief it gave her for chronic back pain, menstrual pain and stress. She decided she must study the vast and powerful healing system of traditional acupuncture and herbology. In 1989, Diane received her Master of Acupuncture degree from the Tai Sophia Institute of Maryland, where she taught for ten years.


In the intervening years Diane has completed numerous post-graduate studies sponsored by the Maryland Acupuncture Society, NCAAOM and the Tai Sophia Institute in topics such as:

  • Eight Principle Chinese Acupuncture
  • Kiiko Matsumoto Style Japanese Acupuncture
  • Chinese Herbology
  • Orthopedic Acupuncture
  • Pediatric Acupuncture
  • Auricular Acupuncture for Addictions
  • Resolving Menopausal Disorders with Herbs and Acupuncture
  • Mood, Mind and Appetite
  • Treatment of Auto Immune Dysfunction, ADD, Infertility and other Chronic Diseases with Detoxification
  • FirstLine Therapy Healthcare Provide Certification
  • Healing Gastro-Intestinal Disorders
  • The Effects of Diet and Nutritional Supplementation on Genetic Expression of Hereditary Chronic Diseases


Healthy lifestyle has always been an important part of acupuncture’s healing philosophy. However, Diane found that today’s modern lifestyle deviated so much from any previously experienced by humanity that the related health problems were not responding to the traditional healing approaches. Even among her health conscious clients, Diane found that many struggled with obesity, cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, inflammatory disease, premature aging and other chronic illnesses.


A search for solutions led Diane to the science of Nutrigenomics, the FirstLine Therapy Program and the process of natural detoxification. After studying these techniques for several years and using them herself, Diane found this approach to be a natural complement to the traditional forms of medicine she had practiced for years. These tools finally gave her what she had been looking for: the ability to prevent and treat chronic diseases without drug therapy.

These additions to Diane’s practice have enabled her to serve her clients by helping them to avoid the chronic diseases of today and providing drug-free solutions to those already suffering.
