After 20 years, Debra Pardee, Acupuncture Physician (known as Dr. Rusty by her patients), has a new location for her Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine Clinic. 

“It was time for a new location and a new start,” said Dr. Rusty. “We had been at the previous location for 20 years.” 

Now located on U.S. Highway 17-92 in DeLand, Dr. Rusty’s new location is only a few miles away from her previous office, but the commute is much more convenient for her patients. 

“Ninety percent of my patients say I’m closer to them now,” said Dr. Rusty. “I love the new office. It’s the same size as the old office, has six treatment rooms, and it’s so much fun being in the midst of the hustle and bustle of 17-92.”

Dr. Rusty sees everyone, from newborns to adults, age 99 years young or younger, and helps treat a wide range of problems. 

“We deal mostly with pain and allergies, but we treat everything,” said Dr. Rusty. “I’ve helped 79 women conceive, used over 2 million acupuncture needles, and have eliminated pain and sensitivities in over thousands of patients 6,000 times.”

Although acupuncture is usually a last resort, in her clinic Dr. Rusty works with patients to identify the root cause of their symptoms and determine a natural method to address their problems, ideally before drugs or surgery becomes necessary. “I want to help my patients get healthy, be healthy and stay healthy,” said Dr. Rusty.

Dr. Rusty has been an acupuncture physician for more than 20 years and studied at the Tai Institute in Oviedo. She has written two books, has won The Best of the West for acupuncture every year since 2001, and is a specialist in eliminating sensitivities. 

Her clinic offers acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion, Chinese herbs, homeopathy, Bach flower remedies, electro-acupuncture, and lifestyle and nutritional counseling.

The new Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine Clinic is located in DeLand at 2235 S. Woodland Blvd. (U.S. 17-92), in Suite 104. They are open 8 a.m–6 p.m Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
