Before I discovered the world of Acupuncture and herbs, I was on my way to become a Western doctor. I suffered from horrible allergies(year around) and I always hosted a few infections every winter. I was referred to an acupuncturist, and began to receive treatments. Within a few visits, my allergies began to lessen and my infections vanished...my days of antibiotics were over!
I began to read everything I could get my hands on concerning Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, and what I call "Energy Medicine". This led me to becoming a Reiki practitioner and entering Chinese Medical School at AOMA in Austin.
After 4 years Chinese Medical School, I became a Texas Licensed and National Board certified Acupuncturist, my education was just beginning. Two years after opening my practice, 8 out 10 patient's health goals were met with success. I wondered why I couldn't get those last two patients healed with Chinese medicine. I began seeking knowledge from practitioners from around the world. I began learning: NAET (Allergy Elimination Technique), Functional Blood Analysis, Hormone and Adrenal testing, Dr.Yan Xin Life Sciences Technology (Internal Qi Gong), Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing), Nutritional Response Therapy (ULAN), NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), Esoteric (chakra) acupuncture, Korean hand acupuncture, Master Tung (Miracle points) acupuncture, Acutonics (Tuning Fork therapy), advanced cupping techniques, Heel Homeopathy, personalized detox programs, and Weston A. Price Nutrition (Nutrient Dense Eating).
My vision is to hold a space where patients can have an understanding of their bodies, hearts and discover their ultimate destiny in life. I strive for powerful, impactful, life changing sessions with my patients where we both discover their root cause of disease or imbalance and treat the whole person including physical, emotional and spiritual realms. I want to remind people that our natural state is HEALTH; we should thrive, feel happy and energetic in our being.
There is a Chinese saying that goes something like this: “ A good doctor helps to heal the physical body, A great doctor helps someone to heal themselves, the Best doctor helps you to discover your ultimate destiny in life."

While practicing the past 10 years, Dr. Hall continued his extensive training in natural medicine while specializing in Diabetes, Thyroid and Chronic Fatigue.

When a person experiences poor health, it is do to an imbalance in one or more of these areas. He believes in a natural, drug-less, non-invasive approach to correct these imbalances.
He continues to dedicate himself to learning the most current health information and techniques. Dr. Hall has completed over 1,000 hours of continuing education in Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, Brimhall Protocal, Gonstead Technique, Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), Torque Release Technique, Cold Laser Therapy, Activator Technique, Myofacial Release, Applied Neurology, Nutrition, Herbals, and Detoxification Programs.
While attending Northwestern State University on a football scholarship, he developed a passion for nutrition and sports medicine. Towards the end of his football career his focus expanded to alternative care due to injuries. To avoid surgery, he learned to heal himself through natural methods including chiropractic. He began his path of healing at the Austin School of Massage Therapy and then earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree and certification in Applied Kinesiology (AK) at Parker College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Hall enjoys educating his patients on the benefits of living a healthy, energetic and active lifestyle. He is passionate about helping others achieve optimal health and wellness.
Chad Gouge, ACN
I grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. For ten years, I worked as a commercial industrial electrician. After a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis , I was unable to work. My quest for a non-pharmaceutical solution lead me to natural medicine and my purpose. Each layer of healing I worked through allowed me to become more of who I am and live a more full life. I am a certified Clinical Nutritionist through Standard Process. My practice includes nutritional coaching/counseling, applied kinesiology (also known as muscle testing), energy work, and shadow work which helps my patients release the emotional component of their dis-ease. I love to help others discover their own path to wellness and heal themselves like I did. My vision for my patients is for me to help each person get to know their own body and empower them to manage their health in a proactive way – mind, body and soul. My favorite activity outside the office is spending time with my young son, Jaxon. I also enjoys exploring different modalities of healing and personal growth, and connecting with nature.

She is passionate about helping people maintain their epic lifestyles, and cultivate optimal health, with over a decade of study and experience in the world of integrative medicine.
Growing up in Santa fe, New Mexico, Diana had diverse cultural influences throughout her upbringing. This encouraged an exploration of various educational art forms, and eventually fueled her interest in medicine, which led to undergraduate studies in health and wellness at Western Washington University. After completing an internship at St. Joseph’s Cardiac Rehab Program, her directive to become a surgeon shifted to preventative and integrative medicine. After completion of a B.S. in Kinesiology from WWU in Bellingham, Diana began her holistic studies at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR and transferred to Austin, TX to complete didactic and clinical studies at the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. Following graduation she spent time traveling around SE Asia and had the opportunity to attend clinical observation at the First TCM Affiliated Hospital in Guangzhou, China.
Diana specializes in musculoskeletal injuries, women’s health, digestive dysfunction and mental-emotional imbalances; although her skill set and scope of practice is far reaching, with the ability to treat almost any ailment or disease.

It is her mission to provide comprehensive, collaborative and integrative healthcare that treats the patient as a whole, as opposed to just a symptom, thereby superseding the current model by cultivating a patient-practitioner relationship that allows for open lines of goal setting communication. In doing so, Diana aims to unravel the source of illness, unearth the root of disease and peel away the layers of sickness to support a robust and thriving state of being.
