An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of extremely fine, paper-thin stainless steel needles into precise points on the body. The combination of points are prescribed based on the pattern of imbalance determined by the practitioner.
For most people, acupuncture is painless. Some people describe the sensation to be heavy and calming. In most situations, the practitioner will gently stimulate the needles to stimulate “Da-qi”, which translates to receiving energy.
Acupuncture aims to improve the body’s normal physiological functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomical sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. Modern medical research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, anxiety, digestive function, as well as improve sleep, and promote a lasting sense of well-being both during and after treatments.
The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of extremely fine, sterile needles into the skin. Additionally, pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may be coupled with acupuncture to further enhance its bio-stimulatory effects. Other acupoint stimulation techniques include: manual massage, moxibustion or heat therapy, cupping, and the application of topical herbal medicines and ointments.

I've been seeing Jenna for acupuncture and cupping for pain in my neck and back that I've had for almost my entire life. At every session, I can feel the trapped emotions, trauma, etc. being released. Jenna's treatments always leave me feeling light and relaxed and I can tell that healing is finally happening. The pain is disappearing! So grateful to have found this place!
Hana did some cupping for me when my muscles weren't feeling too great. The next day I felt significantly better. She also gives amazing treatments for anxiety. Ive been feeling fantastic. She's super professional and genuinely cares. Looking forward to continuing treatment.
I have had many sessions with both Hana and Jenna and they both are truly an incredible, intuitive, caring, gifted healers. There are actually no words to articulate the powerful relief and release I've experienced during our treatments.
One of the best clinics in LA for sure. Had an amazing first experience and am looking forward to going back for more treatments. I’ve never felt more relaxed and my back feels amazing! Thank you guys!
