Read what patients say about working with Laura, as well as practitioners who refer to Laura.

I am a firm believer in using natural ways to heal the body and mind and I found Acupuncture is one of those ways. Thank you Dr Laura for your magnificent quality of natural care. Every time I get off the table I feel like a new me.


Dr. Laura is gifted at helping her clients in a holistic manner, with solid recommendations for supplements and treatment advice. Her practice has quickly become a refuge for self-care and relaxation. Highly recommend.

I have metabolic syndrome which Laura is helping me with. I have had two appointments and she has given me good advice which I believe will really help me after nearly two decades of living with these health problems. She is very caring, empathetic, and a great listener. She's explored my health concerns and history in great detail, so I think she really gets what's going on with me. With her emphasis on healthy, natural eating and natural supplements plus her seemingly limitless knowledge about metabolism, food and nutrition I feel comfortable with her recommendations.


This was my first experience with acupuncture and I was recommended to Dr. Laura by a OBGYN in the Monterey area. She was so thorough and explained each step to make me less nervous. Overall it was an amazing experience and I had the best rest I have ever had during the resting portion of the experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Laura to anyone, especially anyone new to acupuncture! It was life changing and I will continue to go here!


I first looked for a functional medicine approach when I was experiencing gut health issues. In addition to Laura's excellent reputation, I wanted to have a partner in this journey with expertise I don't have. I have made progress towards my goals, and I attribute that to Laura's knowledge and approach.


Since my last acupuncture treatment, my leg cramps and muscle spasms during the night have DRAMATICALLY decreased! It felt like a miracle to be able to sleep with very little discomfort and get in a solid night of sleep! I’m thrilled, and I hope it continues. Thank you for doing your magic!


After seeing Laura's Instagram profile, she looked like the perfect dr for my needs. Dr. Paris figured out that I had an imbalance in my hormones after my conventional doctors told me everything was fine. Everything was clearly not fine as I could not even go to work. Dr. Paris got me on a healing plan immediately. The only way Laura could improve is by moving to Hawaii so I can see her in person lol.

I have always been more likely to seek out alternative care like chiropractic, acupuncture, and bodywork, and I follow many health care teachers, so I found functional medicine years ago. I chose to work with Laura because she is conveniently located and affordable. I have made progress toward my goals and Dr. Laura has offered many resources for me to pursue, some of which I have followed through with, and I am already seeing results. Laura is a good listener, very friendly and reassuring, and I feel that she cares about my health issues and goals.

Mardeen Gordon

I sought out a functional approach to my healthcare when a relative highly recommended working with Laura after doing really well with her. I came with several issues like stomach problems and chronic viruses. I have seen my condition improve and not constant and have made progress towards my goals. What I like best about working with Laura is she listens to me. That makes me feel comfortable telling her if something is not working and she keeps trying to resolve the issue if her treatment is not working. I really appreciate that!

I first sought out a functional medicine approach because I find allopathic medicine fairly weak when it comes to chronic health situations. I like that functional medicine looks at the underlying causes and not the symptoms. I chose to work with Laura because I know her from her acupuncture work and know she is dedicated to her work and to learning in her field. I think by taking a simpler approach to a supplement protocol it makes it much easier to keep it up. The previous practitioner gave me a protocol that I had to write done and look at every day, ex.: take these 2 before you eat, these 3 during your meals and etc. Laura's simpler protocol also allowed me to have an easier time detecting what was working, etc and I have already made progress towards my goals. Laura is very comfortable to talk to and share with as well as being very knowledgeable about the things I am experiencing.

I first looked for a functional medicine provider to help with PCOS, hormone and energy concerns. I chose to work with Laura because I have witnessed traditional medicine fail many friends and family. I noticed Dr. Laura had telehealth options and a history of success! We are getting labs done to uncover root causes, and I am working on making healthy changes and I am making progress towards my goals. Laura actually listens, addresses root causes and the nutritional factors that may be impacting my health.

I was in search of a Functional medicine doctor locally when multiple issues I was experiencing were not getting resolved with other attempts and approaches. Laura cares . . . and that is so readily felt. I very much appreciate her presence of mind and heart, her desire to leave no stone unturned in seeking to resolve my situation and her accessibility in addressing questions so promptly through her portal. 5 stars!


I had a family member working with Laura that was greatly impressed by how well things improved for her, so I chose to get Laura's professional opinion for several issues that were not getting cleared up or improving for me. Since working with Laura I am now making progress towards my goals and I believe that is because Laura had me do certain tests to diagnose my issues and she has been so willing to listen to me as well. What she has found and recommended now allows me to have more of a normal routine without being sick constantly. It’s been wonderful. I really enjoy her kind approach and her listening to me as a patient. And if she needs to think about the best program she does not hesitate to tell me that. When you are chronically sick those approaches mean a lot.


Regular doctors were getting out of control trying to bandage my symptoms with psych meds, and that is when I decided to look for alternative care. I went to Laura for an acupuncture appointment when I had a lot of strange symptoms happen. She was extremely caring and concerned so after working on my healing for a bit I decided to use her to help with hormones and other imbalances. I am still actively working with her, and already making progress towards my goals. Laura is so smart and caring and her scheduling and online portal are also really easy to use.


Laura has been my acupuncturist for over a decade and when I was looking for a functional medicine approach for my breast cancer I chose to work with her. Since working with Laura I have met my goals, and I believe this was due to the supplements and dietary changes that Laura recommended. These changes have made a big difference in my health. Laura gives me 100% of her attention and took time to understand my health issues.


I first sought out working with Laura for my gut health balance. I chose to work with her because she is knowledgeable and I had learned a lot from her social media content. Since working with her I have made progress towards my goals and I believe my results were due to the support from Dr. Paris and the ability to message her in between appointments. What I liked most about working with Laura was that she listened and gave options about my treatment plan. She is not like most providers that are rigid in their ways and claim to know more than your own knowledge of your body. She gave me autonomy and made me feel like I was part of the decision-making in my treatment plan. I am completely satisfied with my care and I feel that Dr. Paris goes above and beyond for her patients.

I can't say enough about Dr. Laura Paris.  I wasn't sure how this was going to work between her and I because I lived in Indiana and she was in California.  Everyone thought I was nuts.  It was the best thing I could have ever done.  I am 48 years old and this year perimenopause and stomach problems hit me hard.  I started having major anxiety, dizzy spells, stomach problems, and many other symptoms.  Laura was able to do several tests such as Dutch testing, GI map, and we also did a food sensitivity test.  Through natural herbs that she mixed up for me and several supplements, I am starting to feel like myself again.  She takes the time to listen and get to know you.  She shows compassion and really cares for her patients no matter how far away they are.  This was money well spent and I would definitely recommend her.


I am so lucky to have found Dr. Paris! I can not even count the number of doctors I have gone to over the last 9 years. Some were even out of state. They all failed me, according to them it was either in my head, nothing wrong or advised some ridiculous thing to get more money. I have been dealing with a list of ailments that just seemed to get worse instead of better. Extreme fatigue, memory loss, weight gain and achey joints just to name a few. I have tried self treating to no avail. I knew something was wrong and didn't want to give up searching but it was depressing and draining when you don't get help time after time. I found Dr. Paris online when I was researching my self diagnosis and she had a very detailed blog on it and I was impressed so I did the free discovery call with her. Dr. Paris seemed very knowledgeable, compassionate and confident she could help me. For the first time a doctor actually said they could help me. I was afraid to get my hopes up since I have been so disappointed before. After our first consultation I felt like a giant weight had been lifted off me. I was so relieved to have finally found someone that was confident that they could truly help me. No more staying up all night searching on the internet for hours trying to self diagnose myself or giving myself the pep talks to keep going just to do my basic tasks. I had hope again. During our consultation she asked a lot of detailed questions and thoroughly answered my questions. She discussed the different test options in detail and also with a concern of costs. I really truly feel like she cares about helping me and getting me better. The tests she chose for me to do gave her the info she needed to make a plan for me. Even tho I have only been going to her a short time the plan is working extremely well.  I am feeling less achey, lost weight, less stress and am very confident that in time following her plan I will get my life back as she knows what she is doing. There are a couple issues that she is still researching on my ailments and I feel she will get to the bottom of all my health issues. It's not a quick fix and I am completely ok with that and am willing to do the work it takes. If you are in the position like I was with one idiot doctor after another and feeling hopeless, don't give up. Do the free discovery call with her and see if you are a match. I bet she can help you, but you also have to be ready to help yourself and do the work in the plan she gives you. I think you will be happy with her I know I am.

I wanted to do Functional Medicine because I was not feeling well at all despite taking action with medical treatments and alternative treatments. I knew there was something wrong and I felt no one was getting to the root of the problem. I was referred to Laura by a relative who also has unusual health issues and I saw firsthand how she was improving. Laura listened to me which I totally appreciated and took tests that have not been done on me before. Change of diet was not easy but I realized if I needed to feel better if was necessary. I've made progress towards my goals.


I sought Functional Medicine to address the root cause rather than the symptoms. I chose Laura because she said she could help me, I believed in her and she has in fact helped me tremendously, with several different issues. I've met my goals, I am doing well and hope to do even better! Laura listens...really hears you, is accepting, caring, and genuine, and seems to always have an answer! Can she clone herself? If only there was more of her to go around!


Dr. Laura Paris has been instrumental in my healing process. She has helped me uncover the underlying issues in my health and wellness. We have created a wellness plan to help me get back to my optimal Health. I fully trust her and her knowledge About women's health and wellness. She has helped me get an alignment and find the root cause of my ailments. I look forward to continuing our relationship and moving towards a healthier lifestyle. Highly highly recommend her.


For most of my life I have struggled with a sugar and yeast imbalance. Although I was able to get mild relief from time to time, I thought it would be a constant, lifelong, losing battle. I arrived at Laura's office desperate for some relief. Laura provided an analysis of my body, metabolism, and provided fascinating information about the function of biofilm. She even helped me figure out some of my efforts we're actually working against me. Laura and I worked together to develop multiple strategies to finally start to get some relief. Overcoming sugar cravings and an intense yeast balance was no easy task. However, with Laura's guidance, it finally became came realistic. After a few months of diligence and determination, I feel as though I am on top of it for the first time in my life.


I had been seeing my doctors about my stomach problems for a few months and they weren't doing anything to help me. So a close friend of mine told me about Laura. The first time I met Laura, I was a mess. I couldn't eat anything without feeling sick. Laura was so kind and sweet, and let me cry to her about how stressful it was to feel like a "prisoner" of my own body. We talked about my options and what I was willing to try (at this point I was willing to try anything). We added some probiotics, vitamins, acupuncture, and I watched what I ate. It was so nice to have someone listen to what I had to say, who didn't make me feel like I was just another patient. I have come so far because of Laura. I feel 100 times better, and she still goes out of her way to email me and make sure everything is going good. I can't thank her enough!


Laura paid close, unhurried attention to my health story, and asked for targeted labs to be taken. She gives you the feeling that you are important as you sit with her. She knew from my symptoms and their trajectory what labs to have me take. She was on the button! She then designed a protocol for my specific thyroid issues and sent me home with a list of supplements to order. It was remarkable how much better I felt in just weeks on the protocol. I hadn't felt that good for several years. I had already been on thyroid medication and Laura's plan was to see if we could optimize things nutritionally. I still use Laura's services for functional medicine, nutrition and acupuncture.


When I first came to Laura’s office eight years ago, I was riddled with pain, brain fog,  fatigue, and a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Through careful discussion, correct blood tests, and analysis, Laura was able to bring me to a correct diagnosis of Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism. Through the years, I have worked with her to discover my root reasons for my autoimmune disease and I am forever thankful for her. I was able to get pregnant with my second child, at 37 years old, after being told that it wasn’t possible. Through her expertise, I have learned proper eating habits, how to supplement, general well­being, and self care. She really listens. She treats each patient as an individual and is very informed and precise. I love that she has training in both functional/Western medicine and traditional/Eastern medicine. Her understanding of both is a huge plus! Before I came to Laura, I saw several MDs and natural doctors. None of them gave me the comprehensive information or attention that she has. She really has a passion for what she does.


I’d like to express my appreciation for what Laura Paris is doing for my health on an ongoing basis. When I started seeing Laura, I was suffering with symptoms from a debilitating autoimmune disease.  Through Laura’s acupuncture treatments and gentle guidance in making important dietary and lifestyle changes, I am in complete remission.  Laura has given me the tools to take control of my health, which I will forever be grateful.


Pregnant at 40 thanks to Laura!  I had a difficult time conceiving my second child.  After two consecutive miscarriages, I knew that I had to go back to Laura. I have known Laura for five years now.  She has helped me tremendously with my many allergies and with the fertility of my first child.  So when I was having difficulty conceiving my second child, I visited Laura for help. She knew what to do right away and with her support and wealth of knowledge, I became pregnant soon after my first visit with her. Laura is kind, caring, and very knowledgeable but above all she is patient.  I am the type of client that comes in with a list of questions and often I am received with frustration by others.  Not with Laura!  She listens actively and always has an insightful response to my every question. Her healing center is warm, clean, and relaxing.  For these reasons, I look forward to my appointments with her. I recommend Laura to anyone needing a health tune-up to those of us with difficulty conceiving.  She is a hidden gem!


Laura has been wonderful to work with over the last few months. When I started seeing her, I had been dealing with several health issues including hormone imbalance, thyroid problems, exhaustion and sleeplessness. I also have an autoimmune disease. She has been so helpful with everything. After a few short months, I am feeling healthier, my sleep has regulated and my hormones are more balanced. I am so thrilled and very thankful for all Laura has done for me! She is a joy to work with.


After actively trying to get pregnant for almost a year, I became pregnant once I started seeing Laura for acupuncture. In fact, I conceived the very first week I started seeing her. Not only did I have a very healthy, happy pregnancy but I had a very healthy, happy baby. I know she played a role in this. To say that she is amazing at what she does would not begin to attest to the magnitude of care and skill she provides. She is extremely knowledgeable and devoted to her patients. Her compassion goes beyond measure and she felt like so much more than an acupuncturist...she felt like a friend. She provided me with the utmost care during my pregnancy journey and I will be eternally grateful to her. If you are struggling to get pregnant or looking into acupuncture for any other reason, Laura Paris is the person to see. I can't sing her praises loud enough.


Laura is an incredibly gifted practitioner. She assisted me in getting pregnant with my now, 9-month-old son (I have PCOS), and saw me all throughout my pregnancy and into the postpartum period (so so needed!). My husband goes to her for his moderate/severe arthritis, as well! Laura has a deep knowledge base that seems to flow effortlessly from her fingertips. She is compassionate, witty, and smart. She combines treatment modalities like diet, lifestyle, herbs, and movement with acupuncture to give you a comprehensive care plan. Unlike some practitioners, she is thoughtful with her recommendations and doesn't try to upsell you on anything that may not be in your best interest. She's always current on the latest research, and forever taking courses and conferences to increase her skill. I can't recommend her enough.


I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Laura and her healing practice. I went to Laura dealing with severe anxiety, fatigue, and depression that came on rather suddenly. Through thoughtful interviews and investigation, she was able to help me figure out that I had been dealing with hormonal imbalance due to Hashimoto's disease. She helped me navigate my diet and use food and supplements to help heal my imbalance in addition to acupuncture treatments to help me manage my anxiety, Laura is truly a healer and I highly recommend friends and family to her without hesitation. Thank you so much, Laura, for all of your thought, care and active listening - I am truly grateful!!


I've been working with Laura for nearly seven years now. First it was in person with her deeply healing acupuncture, combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine when needed. I have learned so much about how my body works best, and have seen encouraging improvements on many fronts. I still appreciate my face-to-face visits, but I enjoy our phone appointments, too. And I absolutely rely on Laura's new website: my patient portal holds my entire visit history, labs, prescriptions, her recommendations, and conversations. I can refer to them at any time, ask a quick question or make an appointment whenever I think of it. What I most enjoy is how versatile and intelligent Laura's care has been and how she challenges herself to keep growing. If she doesn't know enough about a topic, she will certainly find out. She's a wise counselor with a friendly twinkle in her eye and lilt in her voice. I feel I have a true partner who's fully invested in my total health and helps me be as well.


Laura Paris is a gifted practitioner.  About two years ago I came to her because I was feeling sluggish about two weeks of every month.  I had felt like that for about two years   Laura reviewed my blood test results, prescribed a vitamin regime and in a week I felt better than I ever had.  I visit her periodically for blood test result reviews and any changes in vitamin supplements. Laura also helped my 15 yo son who was very thin, had no energy and was depressed.  Again, after reviewing blood results was able to prescribe protein powders, diet change and supplements that gave my child more energy and made him FAR  more pleasant to be around. I highly recommend Laura to anyone seeking better health and well being.


Laura is extremely present and answers all of my questions thoroughly. She is flexible and honors my experience unlike many other medical professionals who don't listen as well. She has helped to improve my energy, hormones, food cravings and health. She cares so much and loves her work which shows. I always look forward to visits. She's perfect!


I look forward to my appointments, they're relaxing and help me to destress. I began seeing Laura due to my PCOS. Since working with Laura, my cycles have become regular, and I am ovulating!

Woman with PCOS

I was very ill 6 months ago, and with Laura's help and practices of Functional Medicine and Acupuncture, today, I am sleeping, my hair has stopped falling out, my forever hot flashes are minimal, I have lost weight, and I have energy again. Thank you. I am so grateful.


Laura is a talented knowledgeable practitioner who through her wisdom helped me navigate feeling poorly in less than a month with her diagnosis and prescriptive nutrition approach.


Laura listens, and then feels into what I need to provide the purest form of health care. She is present and allows time for your body to integrate the treatment. She is a joy to work with!


I absolutely am so gratefully blessed for having Laura be in my life. I have finally met the angel that knows the secret to my troubles. Laura, thank you for your wisdom, kindness, and love you share with me and others to help make us healthy, beautiful, and our best. Many blessings


Laura Paris is my “go to” acupuncturist and healer... we’ve worked collaboratively for many years and I trust her with my most valued patients. I always know Laura will get them in quickly, treat them professionally, and with immense kindness and empathy. Having a collaborator like Laura has really helped our community find their strength and helped bridge the gaps where eastern and western medicine juxtapose one another. I’m eternally grateful to her for her skill set and friendship.

Dr. Jennifer Zeidberg, OB/GYN

Laura is a gifted acupuncturist. I highly recommend her!

Dr. Sibyl Knight, D.O.

Favorite appointment to go to! Laura is kind, gentle, and ridiculously smart. I love that she can break down super tricky science info into comprehendible terms (just check out the website for some life-changing articles!) I started going to her for infertility acupuncture, who knew that was even a thing?! It was a low point in my life, and she was so empathetic and informative. She has a gentle, compassionate touch, and her goal is your health!


If you are looking for an ultra-personalized care plan, Laura is one of the best practitioners available today! As a highly-trained Chinese and Functional medicine practitioner, her care plans also integrate the patient’s physiologic presentation, minimizing treatment aggravation and expediting progress.

Jenn Gibbons, LAc

Laura is a gifted practitioner with a wonderful ability to develop rapport and make you feel comfortable. She is extremely knowledgable about women's hormones and I would recommend her for anyone wanted to get their health back.

Dr. Emma Sutherland, ND

I have been seeing Laura for about a year for unexplained weight gain, anxiety, insomnia, and infertility. I was feeling pretty hopeless after seeing a number of doctors. Laura ordered extensive testing which revealed conditions which my doctors completely missed, imagine their surprise when I brought my labs back to them which showed a clear, treatable diagnosis! After a year of hormone balancing supplements, adjustments to my medications, and lifestyle changes, I finally feel normal again! I highly recommend Laura’s services, both functional medicine and acupuncture. Thank you so much Laura!


Laura has been wonderful to work with over the last few months. When I started seeing her, I had been dealing with several health issues including hormone imbalance, thyroid problems, exhaustion and sleeplessness. I also have an autoimmune disease. She has been so helpful with everything. After a few short months, I am feeling healthier, my sleep has regulated and my hormones are more balanced. I am so thrilled and very thankful for all Laura has done for me! She is a joy to work with.

I am a Midwife and regularly refer to Laura for fertility, miscarriage support, PCOS, fatigue and adrenal issues, pregnancy (normal and variations like gestational hypertension, breech, pelvic and back pain and labor prep), and postpartum support. I trust Laura with my clients, and I know they will be fully supported. She is clinically skilled, thorough, thoughtful, and smart. It is a pleasure collaborating with Laura. She is respectful, brilliant, and I learn so much each time I work with her.

Jacqueline Little, Midwife

Thank you SO much for the acupuncture session! I can honestly say I feel so much more relief with this than I have a massage or any medication I have taken so thank you thank you thank you! I will be seeing you sooner rather than later, I’m sure!


Laura Paris is the medical sleuth I prayed for. After 60 practitioners, two ER visits and tens of thousands of dollars - with still no diagnosis or treatment (apart from painkillers and antibiotics that made matters much worse), I started working with Laura. She took on my advanced and complex case very seriously and fearlessly. She made a thorough assessment of my history, symptoms, environment, diet and activity, then ordered tests that no other practitioners ever did. Now after four years of being homebound sick with constant physical pain, we have a diagnosis and a treatment plan which she has written up for me very clearly. Honestly, I was on my last hope, and now I can say Laura it is probably saving my life. She is ridiculously smart and always learning more by studying and attending courses and conferences. On top of that she is a very clear communicator, generous, caring and alot of fun to work with.


The Central California Coast is really blessed to have Laura Paris, Functional Medicine Practitioner as well as many other healing modalities, to empower individuals to heal their bodies by addressing the root causes, attaining whole body wellness gently and powerfully after dealing with years of chronic issues. If you feel that standard Allopathic Medicine is not enough and you are not making the health progress you want and need to live a full life, contact her to learn about Functional Medicine.


Laura is the consummate professional in her various fields. I have used her for many years as an acupuncturist for sinus and respiratory ailments with great success. She is so skilled with the needles and so knowledgable about herbs that are helpful.  I have taken many Feldenkrais classes from her that have so helped me with various aches and pains resulting in relief and such improved ease of movement. With her expertise in nutrition, Laura was able to suggest the proper testing to determine that I was, indeed, as she predicted, sensitive to glutens and other foods. An added bonus: she has a wonderful, compassionate "bedside manner" and a great sense of humor for those lighter moments when you are with her. I don't know how I would do without her!


My very first acupuncture experience was with Laura, I saw her regularly for about a year for a chronic pain problem. Laura was attentive to my needs and concerns; she is an excellent listener and was very reassuring. I probably relaxed in my "zone" longer than most patients but left each session feeling pain-free and rejuvenated.


Laura has amazing healing abilities. I had a home birth, and Laura was there to help me stay focused and comfortable as I prepared. Every community needs an acupuncturist like Laura!


Laura's Feldenkrais classes have made a world of difference for the sciatic pain I had as well as for general all over feeling better.  I would not want to be without her classes! Her acupuncture has helped boost my immune system as well.


Laura is an excellent acupuncturist! I went to her for a couple of things - back pain, shoulder pain and sleeping problems. Within hours of my acupuncture treatments more than 80% of my pain was gone. She is great!


Laura was the first (and only) acupuncturist I have visited. She spent lots of time talking to me about my issues and asking good followup questions. She was the first person to point me in the direction of going gluten-free, which has been revolutionary for my health. The treatment itself was relaxing and very enjoyable, I left her office in a blissful state. She has also treated my husband successfully for migraines. I highly recommend Laura!


Moved to Monterey and desperate for an acupuncturist as good as the one I left (and skeptical I could). She conducted a long consult and we worked together to piece together things that have worked in the past coupled with her assessment. We have ongoing debriefs after each session to dial in specific approaches for specific issues. I learned it is good to explore new options in this experience. Grateful to have found Laura. AND she isn't phased by sorting out insurance companies.


Laura did the impossible – she turned me into a morning person. One of the most wonderful side effects of getting my hormones rebalanced is that I am getting amazing sleep. I can now fall to sleep at a decent hour, stay asleep throughout the night, and wake up at a decent hour in the morning after a solid 7 to 8 hours of sleep. I feel much better equipped to handle life’s stresses and not have it affect my health. I fight off colds easily and rarely do I spend a day walking around with brain fog. And I’m still getting better every day.


I have been seeing Laura for almost 15 years and have always had amazing care and compassion. She has brought me through some of the toughest times of my life, including now, while I'm battling some very difficult health issues. She always provides me with alternative methods to regain my health and has successfully kept me off of powerful western drugs. THANK YOU LAURA!


Laura is really patient and knowledgeable. I've been trying to figure out two autoimmune issues on my own for about a year, and made some progress, but I started to feel like I had gotten as far as I could on my own. It is so nice to have a guide instead of the obsessing, compulsive research, and guessing! I'm so grateful to have her kindness and expertise. Because I was working on this on my own for so long, I get kind of intense about it and tend to have a lot of questions, and she handles it really well and doesn't make me feel bad for wanting to understand the complexities. It feels amazing to be on the right track. Already I feel more present with my children and am enjoying our daily routines again. I feel confident that we're figuring it all out. I've only had two appointments and Laura has already honed in on a root cause that my struggles stem from.


Hi Dr. Paris. Maybe you are used to this, but you have helped improve my overall well-being to such a degree that I get all starry-eyed when I see you. You have guru status, celebrity status...whatever you want to call it! I truly do not know what I would do without your support at this point. You speak the language I want to hear. I have been seeing western doctors this last year prior to seeing you, seeking their help...pining for a connection to one of them, an answer, a clear direction to take at least. I am glad I did all the testing and groundwork, I can't change that...but man, I was ripe and ready to come see you. I was down for so long, feeling so off and not knowing why, scared, frustrated. Thank you for helping me!  From the bottom of my heart, thank you.  I am a better version of myself than I have been in a really long time.


I feel like an angel has been sent for me and that's Laura! I have been to many doctors/ Naturopaths/ and Functional medicine doctors and not any of them were able to create an effective treatment plan for what's going on with me. Dr. Laura is getting to the bottom of my issues and I look forward to working with her for a long time. She is intelligent, patient, caring, and compassionate. Did I say diligent?! Thank you for what you do.


I started seeing Laura for acupuncture because I have PCOS. I had a history of miscarriage and was ready to have a baby and my midwives recommended her. I wasn’t sure about acupuncture, but Laura’s knowledgeable, warm and caring presence made me feel comfortable, starting with our very first appointment. Every time, Laura checks in with how I am feeling to explore what I need out of the session. I always feel genuinely cared for. My goal when I first began was to overcome infertility and get pregnant, and have a healthy pregnancy, and that’s what happened! I consider it an amazing bonus that every session I feel so relaxed as well. Thanks to Laura, I was able to get pregnant, and stay pregnant! During my pregnancy, she helped to relieve the morning sickness and headaches I experienced in the beginning and helped induce labor at the end, and everything else in-between. I even received a hand-written card from her after I had my baby (whom she met at my first postpartum session)! Laura is amazing at what she does, what I’ve experienced has been relaxing and healing and transformative!

I have known something was “off” with my body since I was 16. For ten years I’ve bounced from doctor to doctor, tried to self-diagnose and self treat my symptoms but I never found a real solution. The final push was my desire to have children and my fear that I wouldn’t be able to. I found Laura online, read a lot of her writings on her website, and knew immediately she knew what she was talking about. I learned more about my health and body with her readings alone than I did through years of jumping from doctor to doctor. Laura listens (even when you think you sound crazy), she cares, she looks at the entire picture and not just the symptoms, and she is a wealth of knowledge. I’m now on the right track and have made huge strides.


Laura is a gifted acupuncturist and functional medicine practitioner. I not only refer all of my clients to her for fertility, pregnancy and postpartum support but also have had incredible experiences for myself as well. Highly recommend her to anyone needing acupuncture or functional medicine!

Heather Schwarz, Midwife

Wow, what can I say about Laura Paris...Thank you! Your study and understanding of functional medicine and immunology, together with your kind spirit has returned my brain, bladder and gut! I have experienced the aftermath explosion of Hashimoto's, IC and Celiac damage. I really thought I was forever lost... However, I decided that I would spend a little money on myself in an effort to change a situation that conventional medication couldn't change. Unfortunately, I am a conventional medical provider, and had to admit that we are discouraged to seek insight past classic medical training. You have inspired me to help those around me in similar situations. True healing and a path to restoration. Mathew 6:33


I first sought a functional medicine approach for gut dysbiosis symptoms. I chose to work with Laura because she was highly recommended and I loved what I read about her on her website. I made progress toward your goals during our three months together. My biggest health issue was SIBO, which Laura helped me resolve. Now I can move on and deal with other, less crucial health issues. The things I like most about Laura are her warmth, openness, and availability. Plus her vast knowledge of natural medicine. Laura excels at what she does. I only have praise.
