Rada Drapatskaya RDH, LAc., M.Ac.


rada's picture Rada first experienced acupuncture as a patient,  looking for relief from her long standing "sciatic pain condition". She experienced relief and healing that changed her life, and she subsequently decided to make acupuncture her profession, and a life calling.

Rada has a diverse background in both Western and Chinese medicine. She has many years of experience in the dental field before becoming an acupuncturist. She continues to bridge both disciplines and still works as a dental hygienist and acupuncturist. Rada graduated from TAI Sophia Institute in Laurel, MD with a Master's Degree in Acupuncture. She also has a dental hygiene degree from the University of Maryland Dental School.

Rada enthusiastically welcomes the general population to her practice, where she treats people with a variety of common illnesses, including but not limited to arthritis pain, migraines, back pain, and infertility... However, Rada does not identify her patients with only their illness or symptoms. She treats them holistically as unique, beautiful individuals, helping them to create their wellness.

Treatment Philosophy:

Rada works with each patient in partnership to create their unique healing experience through acupuncture and lifestyle recommendations.

Area of Special Interest:

As her love and gratitude to the dental profession, Rada treats dental professionals with occupational issues so that they can be well themselves to help their own patients. Because of her training, she treats patients who present with a variety of oral facial conditions, such as TMJ disorder, dry mouth disorder, and post-surgical recovery from oral facial cancer. She works in collaboration with renowned Washington, DC dentists and surgeons such as Dr. Binderman, Dr. Kaplan, Dr. Singer, Dr. Niemtzow, and Dr. David Greenberg and many other dentists in the area to help their patients recover and create wellness in their lives.
