About Dr. Daniel R. Bernstein, L. Ac. CH

Daniel has practiced compassionate healing for the last 26 years as both an acupuncturist and hypnotherapist. Over that time he has seen over thirty thousand patients. Many of them were referrals from those whom he helped with difficult issues such as insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety, lingering digestive issues and seemingly intractable emotional blocks such as cravings and addictions. In 2020 he managed to collate the experiences that he had gathered over the decades and became a published author. His book, Rewired For Sleep: the 28-Day Insomnia Repair Program has now gotten very positive feedback and helped many people to get a full night’s rest.                 Daniel did not start out as a healer. He left behind a career in music after an  acupuncturist successfully cured his chronic insomnia and anxiety. He soon entered a four-year graduate program in Chinese medicine, graduating in 1995. After a stint at an integrative pain management clinic, in 1998 he began treating sleep-related issues including PTSD, and anxiety and insomnia. Along the way he studied with some of the greatest modern masters to incorporate Japanese, Chinese, French and Vietnamese styles into his practices. As a hypnotherapist, Daniel practices an integrative style of Ericksonian hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. 

Daniel routinely works to help his patient using the many modalities last his fingertips. This includes the use of highly-regulated herbal prescriptions and supplements for hormonal balancing, both of which address the stressors that are everywhere around us. The goal is always to diminish the impact of all stressors including heavy metals, immune suppressants, toxic chemicals and food allergies. 

He has taught at university, opened an HIV clinic, worked with hedge-fund managers and in halfway houses with women who had been damaged by drugs (he readily admits that he far preferred the latter!). As a specialist in sleep disorders, he lecture on the diverse ways people heal from insomnia.

Our Philosophy

After practicing acupuncture and hypnosis for twenty-six years I still find people, and the work, fascinating. A good practitioner continues to learn new methods of helping people. Each new patient also begins as a mystery. My training gives me a template for how to unravel that mystery, and Chinese medicine provides us with a template for resolving patient’s issues. 

The Blue Phoenix philosophy is simple:

I believe that a practitioner’s ability to help another person is defined by the tools at their disposal. For that reason, I use acupuncture, herbs, hypnosis (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and hormonal balancing. We all know  that today’s stressors are everywhere and require new methods of treatment. Among the tools we use are targeted supplements that help with detoxification from Heavy Metals, chemical, food allergies and immune-suppressants.  The next step is to find the way that will most help the person heal.

This is our pledge to you: It is our job to be there for you. And you will always in control of your treatment process. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
