Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine that stimulates body’s natural healing mechanisms through insertion of fine solid needles into acupuncture points. It is extremely effective for alleviating acute and chronic pain, depression and anxiety, insomnia, allergic rhinitis, boosting immune system and many more conditions. It is safe and effective for adults, children, immune-compromised people, and pregnant women.

Cupping

For the longest time, cupping has been one of the best well-kept secrets in America. Lately, however, it has been gaining popularity with a surprising speed. More and more people are discovering how amazing cupping makes them feel and are sharing their experiences with friends and family. Allopathic medicine (invasive procedures and drugs) come with many side effects so people are looking for a safer and more natural way of healing.

Facial Gua Sha

Facial gua sha is a gentle scarping technique that relaxes facial muscles and promotes lymphatic fluid drainage. It helps the blood flow to reach outer layers of the skin to prevent it from drying out. The result is more radiant complexion, reduced puffiness, relaxed facial and jaw muscles, improved skin quality, and a calm mind.

Acupuncture with Electro-Stimulation

Acupuncture with electro-stimulation is a relatively modern invention that involves an electrical current passing through a pair of needles.

An electro-acupuncture device creates a continuous electrical pulsed current, which is passed through the wires. The wires are clipped to the acupuncture needles inserted into the body.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is a highly cherished ancient practice that has been around for more than 2000 years. Every patient is individually evaluated for the correct pattern of disharmony and constitutional tendencies. The herbal treatment is based on the individual’s diagnosis as well as Chinese Materia Medica herbal formulas, which are selected and customized for each case.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial rejuvenation with acupuncture is a natural anti-aging therapy that improves skin tone, texture and elasticity; diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and enhances complexion. The insertion of very tiny facial needles stimulates blood flow and allows the nutrients to nourish all layers of the skin. Relaxed facial and jaw muscles, relief of nasal congestion, and a calm mind are additional benefits of this treatment.

Acupressure Ear Seeds

Application of 24K gold or silver coated magnets produces long lasting positive effects on the brain. Acupressure works similarly to acupuncture by stimulating bioactive points on the ear. Our ear seed protocols reduce stress, improve sleep, and diminish pain. We also have protocols that were shown effective for combatting addiction to alcohol, smoking, and sugar and can be very helpful for weight loss. The effects are usually instantaneous and last up to 5 days after the application. This is an ideal add-on to an acupuncture treatment (we call it acupuncture to go) or can be a standalone treatment. The application of ear seetakes about a minute and is a perfect treatment for someone who is pressed for time.

The Healing Power of Moxibustion

When you walk into an acupuncture clinic, you may notice that familiar smoky smell of moxa. Some people don’t like it; others love it. New patients generally ask, “What is that interesting herbal smell?”

Well, that earthy fragrance is the smell of burning herb called moxa (also called mugwort or Artemisia Vulgaris). Moxibustion is an ancient Chinese healing technique of warming acupuncture points by burning moxa cone(s) close to or directly on the skin. Moxibustion can be used in combination with acupuncture or as a standalone therapy.

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 came in for an acupuncture treatment as well as moxa and ear seeding, and I have to say it was an AMAZING experience. Lola is an incredible acupuncturist and made me feel instantly better!!!! 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 !

Alexandra Peters

Treatments at Luna always makes me feel better, physically and psychologically.  Lola is so knowledgeable about how the body works and listens carefully to any issue which impacts my health and well being.

Mari Koerner

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!

Chris Brandlin

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

I’ve had several sessions at Luna and I feel so good! Truly a lovely location and office! Feels incredibly relaxing to walk into such a beautiful space!

On top of that! The services they offer are unmatched in my experience, they tailor every session to your needs and can give acupuncture, cupping, or the ozone treatment! Walk out the door feeling amazing every time!

Highly suggest booking a free consultation or your first session ASAP!
