Danette M. Layton, RN, BSN, MAc, LAc
Danette Layton has been a nurse for over thirty years with much of that time spent in oncology nursing and helping people with cancer. She decided to become an Acupuncturist to be able to offer a different set of tools – one that focuses on wellness.
Danette believes that wellness is about maintaining harmony in our bodies and channeling our energy to maintain balance. “Acupuncture helped me through difficult transitions in my life. It supported me during a divorce, getting through school and going through treatment for cancer. I gained an important insight from this: you can use life’s challenges and transitions to become the best version of yourself – the person you were all along.”
We all face challenges in our lives that affect us on a physical, emotional or spiritual level. Acupuncture can offer clarity and support when you need it the most.

Dr. David Paton, DAc, LAc
Dr. David Paton, D.Ac., L.Ac., has been an Acupuncturist and educator for over 25 years. His interest in integrative health care began over 30 years ago with an acute health challenge of his own. Not finding relief from allopathic medicine, David began treatments with an acupuncturist. Integrating Eastern and Western traditions, he found the answer to his health concerns and is excited to share his answers with others. David has provided acupuncture and health coaching in various settings throughout the Baltimore area and teaches at the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia).

Tony Rettaliata, RMP
Integrative Massage Therapy
Tony Rettaliata, RMP, owner of Tonic Massage and Bodywork, has been practicing massage for just about a year and absolutely loves what he does. He studied the art and science of massage in beautiful Asheville, NC, at the COMPTA accredited Center for Massage and Natural Health. While there he gravitated towards his niche of sports massage and deep tissue. As a lifelong athlete, and having experienced a couple orthopedic surgeries, Tony has an intimate understanding of the way a body recovers from the hoops it jumps through and the power manual therapy has in feeling good again. That is why he gives everything that he knows to every person he massages. Whether it’s hot stone or trigger point therapy, stretching or reflexology; whatever you’d benefit from is what he uses to give a memorable massage you can’t wait to rebook!
