My goal at Enliven Acupuncture is to unlock your body’s innate healing abilities to safely, naturally, and effectively optimize your health.

Durango Acupuncture

Hello, my name is Danielle Hennes, Licensed Acupuncturist.  For a variety of reasons, few people access the full potential of their own body’s healing capabilities.  Unfortunately, many settle into a pattern of living with chronic aches, pains, and emotional traumas that limit our ability to fully engage in our lives.

However, more and more people are refusing to settle on mediocre health and are actively seeking out ways to naturally heal their ailments and enhance their health.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the fastest growing categories in the “alternative medicine” field with over 15 million Americans benefiting from it.  Although new to most in the United States, Traditional Chinese Medicine has existed for well over 2,500 years and has evolved to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions.

Traditional Chinese Medicine consists of a diverse range of medical practices to form a comprehensive health system.  The purpose of these techniques is to stimulate the energetic points along the body which enliven, balance, boost and enhance your body’s healing capacities.



Acupuncturists use extremely thin needles to stimulate specific energetic points located along the body.

Herbal Medicine

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition Therapy

A holistic approach to eating and nutrition habits based on the qualities of different foods.  Foods are chosen based on their effects for each individual’s body constitution.


Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of health problems and conditions; many of which are difficult to treat by traditional biomedical treatments and therapies.

In fact, both The World Health Organization and The National Institutes of Health have endorsed many biomedical conditions as being effectively treated by Acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese Medicine views the body from a holistic perspective.  While relieving outward signs and symptoms of health problems, Traditional Chinese Medicine seeks to uncover and heal the underlying root cause of your body’s symptoms.

I am very appreciative of Danielle’s care. She is very professional, really goes the extra mile to help me out, and I felt she took the time to really understand my situation. I am proud to consider her a friend and I feel very fortunate to have crossed her path.

Last year was the first year I did not land in the doctor’s office once and I truly believe it was Danielle who kept me out of there. I would highly recommend Danielle because she takes the time to really listen to what is going on within you. Her treatments have been spot on and I am most grateful that she is here in our community.  [ ... Read More]


After three sessions, I began to notice that the discomfort in my back that led me to get up at night was diminishing.  By the sixth sessions, the pain was GONE. As an outdoor enthusiast who loves everything Southwest Colorado has to offer, I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to Danielle for fixing this pain!  [... Read More]

The thing that I love about Danielle is how gentle she is and the relaxed, trusting environment she creates. She has the best “bedside manner” I have ever experienced, which I think is very important for people who have not had acupuncture before.

I just knew she was a person that I could trust to help me.
