We offer far infrared high dose ozone sauna sessions as a standalone or adjunct modality in our clinic. Ozone is a form of activated oxygen, the single most important nutrient for the body. Every single cell requires oxygen to produce energy and maintain health. If the body is deprived of oxygen for any reason, there is an immediate decrease of all cellular functions which always leads to disease if not reversed. Lack of oxygen is probably the single most important cause of conditions such as cancer, fatigue, low immune function and many others. Flooding the body with oxygen causes instant reversal of fatigue, improved mood and increase of vitality. 

BRIEF HISTORY OF MEDICAL OZONE

Ozone therapy is a type of oxidative therapy that has been widely used all over the world since its discovery in the mid 19th century. In 1896 the genius Nikola Tesla patented the first ozone generator in the US. During the first world war (1914-18) doctors applied ozone topically to infected wounds and discovered O3 not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti-inflammatory properties. In the late 1980s German doctors were successfully treating HIV patients with IV ozone when no other treatment was available. Its effects are proven, consistent and with minimal side effects. Currently many doctors all over the world offer ozone therapy for cancer, infections, and overall wellness.

HOW DOES OZONE WORK FOR INFECTIONS?

Ozone destroys the bacterial cell wall through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins that it consists of. It also inhibits fungal cell growth. Similarly, ozone damages the viral capsid and prevents viral cell replication because peroxides formed in the blood as a result of ozone breakdown disrupt viral cell to cell communication. Once virus infected cells are eliminated, the body replaces them with healthy cells.

HOW DOES OZONE IMPROVE OXYGEN METABOLISM?

Ozone is a type of oxidative therapy that triggers a cascade of events in the body that leads to rapid healing. When ozone is introduced into the blood, it breaks down the glucose and releases energy and pyruvic acid, activates Krebs cycle, and increases cellular energy and oxygen in the tissues. Ozone also stimulates the production of free radical scavenger and cell protectors – glutathione, catalase and superoxide dismutase. It also leads to vasodilation and improved circulation.

HOW DOES OZONE SAUNA WORK?

We offer session in our far infrared sauna with high dose ozone. It is a relaxing experience where a patient relaxes laying down in the sauna. The temperature can be lowered to a comfortable level for heat-sensitive patients. The ozone is infused into the chamber for the entire 30 minute session. The heat promotes blood circulation to the skin so that the infused ozone gas is absorbed through the skin into the general circulation. Throughout the treatment, the patient’s head is outside the sauna, and the towel placed around the neck prevents ozone inhalation. Some people can still smell the ozone which is safe and normal. It is similar to smelling ozone after a thunderstorm. We diffuse eucalyptus essential oils during the session to relieve congestion and inflammation. Our infrared sauna adds the benefits of far infrared both from the sauna and the gemstone mat which releases negative ions.

Lola has been my acupuncturist for over 10 years, and I can’t say enough great things about her. She is passionate about her work, and an absolute best at what she does. Lola is knowledgeable, friendly, doesn’t mind explaining her treatment plan in detail, and answer every question; her treatments are painless, and she truly cares about her patients.

Stop what your doing ! and make an appointment! This was my first acupuncture experience and I feel amazing. I’ve been working over time the past few weeks and I have trouble sleeping from the work and stress. My friend recommended me here, I did a quick stress relief acupuncture and a cupping session for my back. Did wonders ! Parking was easy , staff is really friendly and knowledgeable. The space is beautiful and clean I felt very relaxed. Would recommend.

I was recommended to come here by a friend for my treatment today and oh was I surprised. I went for the ozone steam sauna and my expectations were exceeded. Not only did I sweat beyond all belief in the 30 minutes sitting and loosing around 600 calories, but Lola was one of the most pleasant people I’ve ever interacted with. The ear acupuncture was also great and now I’ll be coming back here regularly. I feel like a million bucks tonight. Thanks Lola!

I purchased a 10 session acupuncture and ozone sauna package from Luna Body and Mind and absolutely loved it!! I was looking forward to each and every session! Acupuncture therapy restored my energy levels, balanced my chakras and boosted my happiness. Lola, the owner of this place, is absolutely amazing! Each session she greeted me with her beautiful warm smile and always made me feel at home. I felt completely relaxed and restored after each treatment with her. Lola is a very balanced and powerful healer. I completely trust her with my body and well-being. Highly recommend this place and already looking forward to coming back!!

I’m not exaggerating when I say Luna has changed my body aching quarantine life.
My favorite business in Santa Monica, feel so blessed to have Lola work her acupuncture/ cupping magic!
The ozone sauna is a must too! I want to hug that thing! So detoxifying and stress relieving!
I always arrive at Luna excited and rushed from a busy day and leave a whole new person.
So relaxing & truly body healing, better then any massage can provide and with long term benefits.
There’s something unique about Lola, her presence is calming & inviting.
I highly suggest to anyone who hasn’t tried acupuncture to give it a shot. I’m a tiny lady, if my body can handle it, you can too haha it doesn’t hurt, it is tension relieving.
I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my sleep, mood, energy, and anxiety since going here.
Love you all! Thank you for existing :)

Out of all the acupuncturists I have seen, Lola is truly the best of the best. I have been living in LA for over 6 years and have seen it all and therefore normally don’t write reviews but Lola is THAT good. When I am constantly seeing Lola for treatments, my health is the best it will ever be. I cannot recommend Luna, Body & Mind enough. It is honestly life changing!

Lola was very knowledgeable about my Autoimmune problems and offered great recommendations (even my dr was very impressed). My teen daughter is a very big fan of gold seeds, they really help her distress from school. The ambiance is very calm and relaxing. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable. The space was clean and everything was sanitized.
Very COVID19 safe (big plus for me)

Lately I have been suffering from extreme back pain with consistently low HRV and sleep numbers. I visited Lola and felt absolutely at home in her gorgeous clinic near the Promenade in Santa Monica. I explained to Lola what was bothering me and she did an extensive acupuncture, cupping and electro stem treatment on me. Immediately, my back stopped seizing up and my pain decreased immensely. Not only did I feel better, but my HRV score went up 20 points after one day and I had 2:45 minutes of REM sleep when I was previously averaging 1:20 minutes. I plan to go back in two days to increase the benefits and healing, and I know that these treatments will get me back to feeling and sleeping great. Thank you Lola!

Have been a patient of Lola’s for quite some time now, and can say she’s is a godsend. Not only she’s very experienced but her bedside manners are the best. She shares her vast knowledge of Chinese medicine with so much grace, patiently explaining every step of the way so I can feel good about it at any given time. Best of all, I feel a real difference after the treatments. Pain level has significantly decreased, and I have been feeling more relaxed.
New Santa Monica place has incredibly healing vibes to it, designed with care and patients in mind. I appreciate the precautions ‘Luna body and mind’ team is taking to ensure a safe and sanitized experience. Looking forward to my weekly sessions!

Natalia Tibelius

I will be coming back weekly for treatments and I HIGHLY recommend for anyone and everyone with anxiety, stress, insomnia etc. to come in and give it a try; best decision of my life! Not to mention the office is absolutely adorable. The vibes are very peaceful and relaxing. I can’t wait for my next treatment !

I had the pleasure of meeting with Lola and using the ozone sauna today, and it was a great relief and detox. She was very knowledgeable, very responsive, and I had a great conversation with her. I’m definitely considering all of her other services as well. I highly recommend to others!

Coming to Luna Body and Mind has had a huge, positive impact on my health and energy levels. Lola is super knowledgeable about alternative & integrative health protocols and has a kind, warm, welcoming energy. Alexandra & Alex are nice, responsive with scheduling and taking care of me during ozone treatments. The ozone far infrared sauna has made all the difference in helping me get rid of brain fog and burn out. Every time I walk out of this place I feel like a million dollars.
Thank you, Luna Body & Mind !!

Lola at Luna is an absolute artist – a magic worker. She is compassionate, humble, funny, empathetic, and knows how to make you feel at ease immediately. Somehow the day just turns around the second I’m even driving in for a treatment and I’m in a state of bliss for days afterward. The space is beautiful, the acupuncture beds and heat lamps feel like warm hugs, and the ozone sauna is the key to detoxifying your body and life! Could not recommend Luna B&A more!

Michele Nilsen
