Laura treats all humans with acupuncture, ages 13 and up. She specializes in the painless Matsumoto acupuncture method, which uses direct feedback from abdominal (hara) palpation to regulate your neuroendocrine-immune axis. The fine delicate needles stimulate your own pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory signaling hormones and neurotransmitters. Our goal is to restore your vital force (qi or “chi”) so your body and mind find harmony and alignment, and all your organ systems function optimally. 

Our clinics in downtown Monterey and Capitola feel more like a spa than a medical office because they are designed for comfort and deep relaxation.

Laura uses acupuncture to treat:

  • Allergies and sinus congestion
  • Anxiety, stress, trauma
  • Autoimmune flares
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Irregular menstrual cycles, PMS, painful periods
  • Pain, inflammation, and injuries
  • Pregnancy and postpartum issues

Appointments take place at two Monterey Bay Paris Healing Arts clinic locations: 820 Bay Ave in Capitola (Santa Cruz County) and 700 Cass St in downtown Monterey.
