Dharma Acupuncture and Functional Medicine Foundation's

Non Profit Project

Yoga Practice


We provide health care in the form of Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Yoga, and Functional Medicine to serve our community.  We help those who are unable to afford care.  Currently that includes US veterans who are recovering from PTSD, and Camp Lejuene poisoning.  

About Us

Since August 2023, DAFM has been offering services in the Scottsdale and Phoenix community.  


DAFM was founded by:

  • Dr. Lisa Swanson, DAIM, L.Ac., Executive Director, Doctor of Integrative Medicine and Acupuncture

Our goal is to expand and provide services to communities in need including; Native American Reservations, Recovering Addicts, and those in Hospice.  Our belief is that if we are able to provide relief to those who are struggling most our entire community, country, and world benefits.  

Specific Projects

2023  Care for Veterans

Dharma Acupuncture Clinic

Scottsdale, AZ

An emergent need became apparent in practicing Acupuncture and Functional Medicine in our community, those who have served our country are not adequately cared for.  From your donations we have allocated acupuncture treatment, yoga sessions, and functional medicine testing to those who have served in combat that are suffering from the effects of PTSD.  

Future Project

Native American Reservation

Our vision is to assist on nearby Native American reservations using traditional healing methods.  Providing care to those inflicted by historical and intergenerational trauma creates a healing effect felt not only by those who are suffering, but the entire community.
