*Covid-19 Update*

As of 3/17/20, DECA is closed until further notice in order to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in our community.  

We are eagerly looking forward to re-opening as soon as it is safe to do so. 

Please wash you hands, don't touch your face and keep your distance.

And hang in there. We will pull through this together - 6 ft apart.




Thank you to Will and fellow media students at Hancock County Technical Center under the wise and patient guidance of Ben Speed, for the fine videos of DECA testimonials!

Thank you, also, to Jackie, Charlie, Haley and Jean.

Great work!

Community Acupuncture - a new trend?
The Maine Edge | March 21, 2012

"DECA is truly the calmest place in town and Marie is extremely knowledgeable, totally dedicated and sincerely caring.  I leave the clinic feeling rested and refreshed and the next few days I find the stiffness in my joints has dramatically subsided, my energy has markedly increased and I feel a sense of well being.  We are so fortunate to have DECA in our community. "  Liz B., Bucksport."
