I have been seeing Lauren now for at least 3 years and even though I recently moved to Orange County, I still drive all the way up to Santa Monica for my appointments every month because she is that amazing. I found Santa Monica Wellness Center after becoming seriously ill from living in a home with toxic mold. No one really knew what was wrong with me and regular doctors couldn’t offer much help, so I had to find some alternative solutions. I began working with Lauren on my symptoms such as food sensitivities, fibromyalgia, extreme fatigue, panic/anxiety, and many more that started from the mold exposure and had gotten so bad I had dropped out of grad school, stopped working, etc. Through weekly/monthly acupuncture sessions, guided dietary changes, various supplement regimes, and lifestyle adjustments, Lauren helped me find my way back to health over the last few years. I can’t thank her enough for helping me in a time of desperate need and couldn’t recommend her more highly. She is truly a healer. She is intuitive, kind, and so much more than just an acupuncturist!
She is a true health practitioner who strikes the right balance between being compassionate and giving it to me straight
I have been a patient of Lauren Howard for more than a decade. Why? Because she is a true health practitioner who strikes the right balance between being compassionate and giving it to me straight. She takes the time to talk to me, and then customizes each acupuncture session based on what I am feeling that day. Over the years, she has educated me about nutrition, energy meridians, Chinese herbs and my unique symptoms. But by far, the most important thing Lauren has taught me is the importance of taking personal responsibility for my health. I highly recommend her as both an acupuncturist and an expert speaker on health and wellness.
My appointments with Lauren always leave me feeling healthier, calmer, happier and more focused on my goals.
Working with Lauren has changed both my health and my attitude toward my health. When I’m with her, I know I have her complete attention. She listens intently and takes note of subtle things that I might not be talking about directly, but she sees where they can have an impact on my health, or where they are clues to the source of a problem. She has helped me through immediate problems like coming down with the flu, and with more long-term problems like work-related stress or a wide range of physical issues. She’s especially great helping me change my nutrition and exercise patterns, and her encouragement and support have really made it possible for me to make the changes and stick with them. On top of it all, she has a great sense of humor! My appointments with Lauren always leave me feeling healthier, calmer, happier and more focused on my goals.
Lauren is such a kind and gifted wellness specialist! She spends the time needed to listen to what you need and responds with all the care her many years of expertise and training provide. Lauren is a deep healer and I would recommend her without hesitation. Give yourself the gift of going to see her!
