Traditional Chinese Medicine is a system of medicine that views all of the natural world, including humans, as manifestations of opposing forces: yin and yang. The constant flow of energy (or qi) within the human body keeps these forces balanced. When this energy flow is blocked, imbalances and illness occur.
Acupuncture may be enjoying renewed attention in recent years, but this treatment has roots that are thousands of years old.Read More

Your Integrative Medicine Practitioner in Austin, TX
Acupuncture is an old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine dating back over 4,000 years. It still remains effective today as a way to strengthen the body rather than merely treating symptoms. It is primarily used to relieve pain as well as treat other conditions.
More than 3 million Americans and 200,000 children in the U.S. have had acupuncture to help relieve a symptom or condition. Because of its low side effects, it has been the treatment of choice for many doctors across the country. It is even more popular in other countries.
Lindsey is amazing! I started seeing her with early pregnancy nausea and hours after my first appointment started getting relief. She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to check on your health at multiple levels during your appointment.
Lindsey is amazing! She's a wonderful practitioner and she really knows her stuff. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking acupuncture.
Diane from Austin Quan Yin is an absolute gem. She is both highly intelligent and empathetic. She is intuitive, kind, passionate, gentle, and warm. I immediately felt 100% safe and comfortable in her beautiful office.
Dianne is the most compassionate and caring functional medical practitioner you will ever find. I feel so lucky to have found her. She found deficiencies in me that no other doctor I had been too ever bothered to test. I know I'm on my way to the best health yet. She makes you feel confident and strong while in your recovery. She's priceless. Austin's hidden gem.

Dianne Duncan is an incredible individual that I have had the privilege over the years to (really) know. She is the most gifted diagnostician in the realm of natural medicine that I have ever met. Currently, I am seeing Dianne for treatment in health maintenance. More importantly, she loves to heal people and rejoices with you in the results. She especially loves to hear how it has affected/improved your life. I have questioned her diagnoses at times, but blood work results have proven her right. Dang, I hate it when she's always right! Dianne has discovered medical issues that have not been discovered or investigated by my Western physicians. Dianne uses an integrative approach in her practice, but she goes beyond the norm: more specifically, thorough scientific analysis in the biological pathways of our body processes for a complete investigation, diagnosis and treatment of your health (emotional, habitual, and past, present day health history). I am often brought to tears when I describe my experience of healing to others as a result of Dianne's treatment. If you have a genetic disease or disorder, DON'T let that be a stumbling block in making an appointment. There is hope for a greater health even in those health situations. I know that personally.
Every time I visit Austin Quan Yin, I am treated with compassion and respect. Dianne spends a great deal of time just talking to me about how I am feeling and what symptoms I have. It is one of the only times that a person focuses exclusively on me. Dianne's strength as a practitioner is her ability to direct all of her attention on her client. She makes me feel validated. Also, she has a wealth of information about the mysterious workings of the human body and how it is affected by the most seemingly insignificant dietary or environmental changes. I have chronic neck pain; I am a teacher and time grading papers and preparing lessons on the computer put a strain on that area. The acupuncture treatments Dianne gives me help a great deal; in addition, I also buy a Chinese herb from her to deal with the pain. If I ever miss a twice monthly appointment, or if I run out of my herbs, I can tell a great difference in the level of pain. I recommend Austin Quan Yin wholeheartedly. Dianne Duncan has really changed my life for the better.
The Quan Yin Center, and Dianne Duncan specifically, gave me back my quality of life, free from pain presently, that was diagnosed by an orthopedist as osteoarthritis and was painful to the point I had great difficulty walking. He recommended knee replacement so I went to Quan Yin. Ms. Duncan said, “Rodney –I can make you better!” Through a process of herbal supplementation, acupuncture, and strengthening my immune system, I am back in the gym, can sleep all night without pain, and I wake up in the morning at age 75, looking forward to productive days. It involved a process of adjusting all the treatment options until we found the proper mix for me. She said in the beginning, “ Have patience- we work together and we will make you better.” That is exactly what happened!! Thank you, Dianne!!!
I've been a client for 8 years. Dianne has helped me deal with a great deal of health issues. She is very knowledgeable in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, gut to brain connections, hormonal imbalance, allergies, adrenal and auto immune disorders, functional medicine perspective among others. She is realistic and honest about what she can help and what she cannot. She is also networked in Austin to be able to refer you to integrative practitioners if she cannot provide the service needed. Would definitely recommend to my friends.
Dianne Duncan is amazing. When my immune system took a nose dive and I got thrush, I knew I needed more than prescription drugs, so I started acupuncture with another practioner, and while he/she was good, I felt they were missing something. After several months, and not much improved, I went online to find someone who might better suit my needs. I looked at a few sites, and then saw Quan Yin. I had a feeling to call this place, so I left a message, and received a call back from Dianne later that day. I asked a lot of questions, told her a little about my problem, and made an appointment. After talking with Dianne in person for two hours (we didn't get to acupuncture that day, but that was ok, she needed to know my history) I knew I was in the right hands. The blood work is very important. Even if everything comes back within functioning range, it's good to know where you stand. In my case, it helped save my life. I now feel I am truly on the road to recovery as long as I continue to follow Dianne's individualized protocol. Dianne is kind, thorough, and patient. I feel very blessed to have found her.
Diana is the best I have SLE for yrs now and she's incredible and really knows her work..
I'm new to acupuncture and feel so fortunate to have found Dianne! She is extremely knowledgeable and kind; really cares about her patients' wellbeing on ALL levels. She has generously shared her knowledge with me and treats me with the utmost respect. We are PARTNERS in my wellbeing and I consider her as much a Wellness Mentor as a Practitioner. I appreciate her holistic approach and the strong focus on healthy lifestyle. Now this is what healthcare is supposed to look like!
Dianne is outstanding and knowledgeable and holds many degrees. She is skilled in many categories including autoimmune disease, menopause, infertility, allergies, and over all health and wellness. Her acupuncture treatment table is heated and the room is a wonderful ambiance with soothing music. She brings Eastern and Western medicine together in layman's terms and easy to understand. I have received her treatments for almost 10 years. Be patient with her healing theories and methods as it takes time to heal the body...it's not an over night process...in my case it's taken over 5 years to heal the damage that has been done by vaccines and prescription drugs! It's been worth the whole journey! She is a wonderful soul!
Over 10 years ago, I heard about Austin Quan Yin through my mother in law. She was a client for menopause symptoms and hormone imbalances. She told me Dianne Duncan was an Acupuncturist and I should see her about my back pain. I researched accupuncture and decided to try some treatments. During accupuncture treatments, I can feel my body warm and my muscles loosen up. The treatment works on relieving pain as well as a preventative care so i don't experience future discomforts. Also I have been Cupping over the last year and that has been great for my shoulders and back. And after that treatment, my husband rubs lotion on my back when I get home!
I have been seeing Dianne Duncan nearly every week for more than a decade. The long-term impact of acupuncture and herbs have helped my allergies, sleep, stress, and pain and has also boosted my immune system, so that I am rarely sick. I value my health as a direct result of the care and guidance that I have received at Austin Quan Yin.
