First appointment

During your first visit, we will do a thorough health interview and history, and then partner with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. You will have ample time to ask any questions you may have.

Please note that because this time has been reserved especially for you, we request notification of any scheduling changes a minimum of two business days prior to the first appointment, and one business day prior to established patient visits.

Valid emergencies are, of course, always an exception to this policy. Reschedule your appointment if you have been exposed to a communicable illness within the last three weeks and/or you have a fever or flu-likesymptoms.

Any missed appointments are billed at the regular appointment rate. We have 24 hours cancellation policy.

general rules of thumb

Acupuncture isn’t really into hard-and-fast rules. However, there are some general rules of thumb when it comes to preparing for an acupuncture appointment:

We look forward to meeting you soon!


What People Say About Us

Lana Kouzko has changed my life!!!! I was extremely stressed one month ago, and through her treatments my mind and body have been transformed. I am extremely grateful for her help. I am a permanent patient of hers. Thank you Lana.

I was impressed with knowledge and attention to details of the doctor. I don’t believe “they make doctors like this” anymore. Very thoughtful and in depth appointment followed with multiple treatments that helped tremendously. I sure am a fan from now on.

Dr. Lana is awesome. I have had neuropathy (numbness in my toes) for years. Medical doctors (and internet sites) told me nothing could be done (except to take pain medicine). 

After the first treatment from Dr. Lana the numbness significantly lessened. It is a “miracle”. I signed up for 10 treatments right away and am so grateful to the improvement I am experiencing.  

Thank you, Dr. Lana!

Clinic Patient

Dr.Lana has been helping me with my End Stage Kidney Disease; she wonderfully strengthens my kidneys. My BUN has come down from 69 to 44. And most important of all is my stubbon creatinine dropped from 10.3 to 7.9!  

My GFR was 4 when I started the treatment with Dr.Lana. This week it moved up to 5!  

Moreover, I was having so low BP under 80/50 mmHg. I passed out often and couldn’t stand or walk longer than 15 minutes. After 2 weeks of Dr.Lana’s treatment, my BP has been 105/64 – 120/78 mmHg. Now I am back to do my chores, walking, driving , and enjoying my life again. 

Dr.Lana is extremely knowledgeable and she is really really care about my health. She is the true doctor and rare gem indeed!

I suffer from high blood pressure, and I was greatly impressed by the effectiveness of acupuncture in lowering it. After a 30 minute treatment by Lana my pressure goes down 15-25 points for 3-5 days. With two treatments a week I may be able to drop some of my medications. It is also a convenient location for me, and they offer a variety treatments for back pain and other conditions that I’m going to try.

Tried cupping and moxa with Lana for lower back pain and tendonitis- sympthoms improved after first session. As an engineer I am not a great supporter of alternative medicine but in this particular case my experience was good. Physical therapy I was sent ty by my pcp did not have nearly same effect.

Lana is an absolute miracle healer. She doesn’t just do acupuncture …she has so many healing tools and techniques that truly work! I do not ever leave reviews but had to leave one for her. There are so many people who work in this area of medicine and I’ve seen a bunch of them having dealt with chronic pain for a while. Lana is the best, you wont be disappointed!

Kristi N.

Rancho Santa Fe, CA

I came to Dr. Lana with a very strong pain in the back that I contracted due to a “wrong move” at home (simultaneously turning right and bending forward). I consulted with a couple of other physical therapists and chiropractors and they suggested some exercises and pain relief medication but had not addresses the acute problem. Unlike them, Dr. Lana treated me using several techniques such as acupuncture, cupping, moxa and fixed the acuteness of the problem in one visit. I came to her walking “semi-vertically” and left the office in about 1.5 hour walking fully vertically and with much reduced pain. Prior to the visit I was very skeptical about Chinese Medicine treatment and decided to try it just out of my urgent need. Surprisingly, I left the office being converted into a believer in acupuncture and other techniques that Dr. Lana uses. I am very grateful to her for fixing my problem quickly and very economically which is another pleasant feature of the treatment.

Leo K.

Thanks Dr. Lana for helping me! I had a very big problem with my back . Three month ago I hurt my back. I spent lot’s of money on chiropractors and massage therapists but they couldn’t completely solve my problem. Then I decide to ask for help Dr. Lana and I wasn’t mistaken. After the first procedure it became much easier for me. After two week I became a new person and I can live without pain again. Thank you, Dr. Lana very much and good luck!

Lana is very knowledgeable holistic doctor. She has a variety of techniques to approach pretty much any health issue. Her methods really work and are a great substitute to over counter medications. I also very much enjoyed her workshops where Lana teaches some of those methods. Last one was on cupping and sure thing, I’ve been “torturing” my husband with cupping massage since. It is fairly easy and effective. Lana has several medical degrees (Many diplomas on her wall) and a lot of experience! Very glad I met her.
