A Wellness & Acupuncture Center in Mar Vista, Los Angeles
I have been a patient with Carine for a year. Post micro discectomy surgery from a sports injury, I suffer from sciatic nerve pain in my leg due to some scar tissue irritating the sciatic nerve. This causes excruciating calf cramps in the middle of the night. My sleep has suffered greatly in the last 2 years. So has my overall health. I found Carine on Yelp because I needed an acupuncturist that was closer to home. Carine is a very attentive, caring and involved practitioner. In addition to my back and calf pain, Carine has helped me manage stress better and even prevented Gall Bladder surgery! She has help me improve my diet and I have not felt better in years! An appointment with Carine is more like a visit with a friend. She truly incorporates the whole health practice of Spirit, Mind and Body! I prefer the more natural methods of exercise, vitamins, herbs and acupuncture.
Before working with Carine I had never worked with an acupuncturist so I was a bit hesitant. I was feeling stuck with a lot of things in life, and nothing else was working to help me get out of my slump, so i figured what the hell. I had just gone through a major loss of a close friend an recently launched my own business, which has absolutely taken off among all the other things that make life hectic, so I really needed help NOT having a breakdown. Carine’s work really helped me move through a lot of the energy and emotions and that have been preventing me from moving forward and doing the things I needed to do (and be the person I needed to be). I am so happy I decided to work with her and will continue to go back to her regularly, because I know how much her work has benefited my life in the short time since I started seeing her.
Carine is a LIFE CHANGER!!!! She embodies the rare health professional that lives in alignment with what she talks about and so I see her not only as an expert but also someone I can really trust.
Carine is my go-to for all things wellness, supplement, and nutrition related. Her recommendations have completely transformed my life and how I feel in my body. Thanks to Carine, I’ve never felt so vital. If you care about loving your body and eating right for your body, I don’t know of a better, more caring and patient health professional than Carine. She is exceptional!
Carine is a fantastic acupuncturist. I had a history of preeclampsia and saw several acupuncturists through my pregnancy in the hope of avoiding it again but developed hypertension at 31 weeks. Then I started seeing Carine. She helped maintain my health so it never progressed beyond mild hypertension. My OB wanted to induce me at 37 weeks so Carine induced me with acupuncture – just one session and I went into labor. My OB was so impressed she asked me for Carine’s information! Carine is extremely warm, genuine and caring, I felt like she truly cared about me and my health. She went out of her way to learn more about my conditions and share helpful information with me about them. She is open and collaborative and was an integral part of my pregnancy team – you should have her on yours too.
