Here for you

Lauren Sugarman, MS, L.Ac., FABORM, FNTP, RWP is passionate about helping people live healthier, happier, and more authentic lives.

Lauren uses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Integrative Medicine to support overall health, well-being and vitality to provide compassionate and holistic healthcare that improves health, quality of life and well-being.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is the oldest codified system of medicine in the world. It restores health and balance in the mind, body and spirit by supporting the whole person. TCM relies on a highly comprehensive and individualized diagnosis of a patient’s unique bioindividuality.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture works to activate self-healing in the body by opening energy channels and increasing blood flow to vital areas of the body. Strategically placed thin needles are placed at specific points in the body in order to balance hormones and body systems as well as to alleviate pain.

Functional Nutrition

Functional nutrition seeks to uncover the root cause of disease and illness in the body. The focus is centered on each patient’s unique bioindividuality and takes into account the whole person rather than a specific set of symptoms. Diet and nutrition, physical activity, stress, genetics, relationships, environment and lifestyle are all considered to promote long-term health and wellness.

Services Offered

This complimentary session is the first step in your healing journey and allows for an explanation of my services and any questions you may have regarding our working together.

Your health concerns will be heard and understood. Together we will get clear on your health and wellness goals and what is involved in achieving these goals. Testing recommendations are given, what tests are involved and why are explained. Short term dietary changes may be suggested as well as supplement protocols.

This package includes the Initial 90-minute Consultation and the 6 follow-up sessions for a total of 6 Telehealth hours, unlimited email support, and an emergency or SOS session. We develop your Custom Protocol, Success Planning/Implementation, Success Check, Retest Prep and Refining your Custom Protocol.

During this session, we go over your complete health history and main health concerns. An acupuncture treatment follows the evaluation. Infrared heat, moxibustion, cupping and/or electrostimulation may also be included in the treatment.

This is a revitalizing and rejuvenating experience that is designed to support your whole body in looking – and feeling – years younger. The sessions support your metabolism, regulates hormones, and increases the circulation of blood and lymph to the face.
Each session concludes with a therapeutic facial oil massage followed by a traditional cooling jade roller technique on the face, and a luxurious neck and shoulder massage. Melt your worries away and float in a sea of bliss!

Success Stories

“For 2 weeks of being light-headed and having a loss of balance, I went to the doctor and had a blood panel. The results of the blood panel was that everything was fine. I was still staggering around so I decided to try acupuncture. Three days after I saw Lauren I was back to my normal self and celebrated by making a large batch of cookies.”

Virginia Tuechert, California (age 93)

“Thanks to working with Lauren, my wrists and hands have improved to the point that I can actually write rather than type without pain. On my vacation, I was able to use my hands and fingers to do the handiwork I enjoy. My ankles and shins have loosened up so I can walk more than 20 minutes pain free as opposed to having to stop every 100 yards in the past. Having more mobility in my ankles has made a huge difference in my life since I enjoy being active. Also, did I mention that acupuncture with Lauren is very relaxing?”

Brian Atkins, California

“I look forward to my treatments with Lauren. I have had an undiagnosed condition for over six years now that has not responded to Western medicine. Through Lauren’s caring, gentle, kind manner and her expertise, my body is responding favorably to acupuncture. I appreciate how Lauren is treating my conditions through the integration of body, mind and spirit.”
