Lauren is a California board certified Licensed Acupuncturist with a Masters degree in traditional oriental medicine from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine and a BA in Psychology from Cal State University Channel Islands.
Other than working with stress and emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression, Lauren's true passion is working with the prenatal population. Providing support during a woman’s most exciting, yet vulnerable time is a beautiful experience. Pregnancy can be challenging both physically and emotionally, and it is important for these mamas to know that they there are ways we can help. As a mom of two, Lauren understands that prenatal care and support is much more than routine check ups and ultrasounds, it’s about having your concerns heard and having physical and emotional wellness met. Helping women find peace in the transition from pregnancy to motherhood and beyond is something Lauren is passionate about. No matter what phase you are in your life, Lauren’s warmth, compassion and enthusiasm creates a space of empowerment and confidence to provide support to her patients in every step of the healing process.
Lauren fully appreciates the holistic viewpoint of Eastern medicine and how it helps bridge the mental/emotional aspects of psychology with the physical body. Embracing the intricate balance between the body and mind, Lauren provides a fully individualized healing plan for each of her patients integrating acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle to suit their needs.
Angelo is a California board certified Licensed Acupuncturist with a Masters degree in traditional oriental medicine from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine and a BS in Food Science and Nutrition from Chapman University.
Angelo was first introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) while taking an Introduction to Alternative Medicine class during his undergraduate studies. It was through this class that he would be drawn to TCM’s ability to go beyond treating symptoms to instead focusing on the root cause of disease. Applying this basic principle, Angelo’s passion and main focus is pain management.
Whether you’re experiencing pain from sitting at a desk all day, a weekend warrior or anything more, pain doesn’t have to be the reality of your life. Through individualized treatments, Angelo’s goal is get you moving forward in your life so that you can get better every day.
Lauren and Angelo live in Thousand Oaks with their two kiddos, Mateo and Malia.
