Testimonials

I cannot say enough fantastic things about Vie Healing and Mona!!! I moved to LA a year ago and have chronic health issues and pain. I was beyond lucky to find Mona and her magic needles! She has helped not only with my pain but I have more energy. I have been using acupuncture for 20 years and can honestly say Mona is the best acupuncturist I've ever been to. An added bonus is her calming influence, every session feels like a spa treatment with a good friend. Thank you Mona for everything!!!

Casey, Los Angeles

I have been to medical doctors, nutritionists, and Chinese healers who placed me on various medications and extremely strict diets, none of which were conducive to long-term, lifestyle changes. What I appreciate most about seeing Mona is her patient and realistic approach. She didn't promise a significant change over night. That was refreshing and more validating than a doctor or healer who promises you a magic solution. Mona encourages me to live a balanced life without a rigid, overly-cautious and stressful regimen.
