“Carmen is magical.  And if you don’t believe in magic, then at the very least, Carmen is amazing.  I went to see her after suffering from insomnia for several months. The hour I spent each week with Carmen was relaxing and rejuvenating in a way that I have never felt before.  Within a few months, not only was I able to fall asleep and stay asleep, but I was also more aware of myself, my patterns and my desires.  Through the combination of talk therapy, acupuncture and reiki, Carmen empowered me to face issues that I had been dodging.  She also helped me improve my diet and in turn, my energy level increased tremendously.” --MN, Brentwood 


“I had a health crisis that centered around my digestion about three months ago, and Western medicine had no answers for me.  They never asked me about my diet or lifestyle and sent me home with a no explanation and some drug recommendations.  I felt hopeless, scared and defeated.  A friend recommended energy healing and acupuncture, and I rejected the idea.  'I'm so scared of needles!'  About a week later, I ended up in Carmen's office.  She was so kind and responsive over email that I had to meet her.  Within minutes of entering her office, I felt welcome and safe. She is so attentive and present, a truly gifted listener.  One of her first questions was, 'What do you eat?' and asked about my past and my lifestyle.  She is so thorough and understands the idea of the mind, body and Spirit connection that encompasses 'health.'  I was almost too scared to try needles during the first session, but after talking with her and getting to know her, I had to try it... and I LOVED it.  She gave me a clear explanation of what was happening and her full attention was devoted to me.  I never once felt that she wasn't fully present.  She's a very special woman, acupuncturist and energy healer.  I would recommend her to anyone (especially people who are afraid of needles!).  Thank you Carmen for letting your innate talents, gifts and abilities for healing guide you to healing others.  I'm so grateful you're in my life.” - KW, Writer, Pacific Palisades


“Carmen is a fantastic acupuncturist that can cure anything! I had been dealing with stomach pain and constipation for many years.  After going through horrible tests, my western doctors still hadn't discovered what was wrong with me and before they could send me to another "specialist", I went to Carmen.  Just after one acupuncture session, my pain was much less and she was also able to handle my anxiety and panic attacks as well!  She knew exactly how to treat my whole body and mind! Now after 9 months, I have no more stomach pain and I haven't had a panic attack in months! On top of being very knowledgeable, she is a warm and caring person and as far as I am concerned she has saved my quality of life.” -- JR, Legal Assistant, Los Angeles 


“I recently moved to the Pacific Palisades and started seeing Carmen for my back, for stress, and many other things. Her treatments are like lifesavers to me. I feel wonderful after each one, and better in the days that follow. If you’re new in town and looking for a great acupuncturist look no further here she is. I felt at ease the minute I step foot in her office.” --HL, Pacific Palisades (Yelp! Review)


“After living with shoulder pain for five years, I felt the beginning of relief within five minutes of my first appointment. After three appointments, the pain was no longer a factor in my life. I’ve been to other acupuncturists, but stopped going because of a factory feel to the office and the difficulty in scheduling follow-up appointments. With Carmen’s practice, the treatments and the setting are so relaxing; the care is very personal. Now I get treatments for overall health. Her knowledge of foods to add or avoid has been most helpful, and she presents various options in a flexible way that makes it very practical to adopt her suggestions. My acupuncture appointment is now my favorite part of my week.” -- KS, Pacific Palisades


“For the past year I have been getting acupuncture treatments from Carmen.   She is an amazing acupuncturist; knowledgable, caring and effective.  Her needle insertion is virtually painless.  Together we have worked through life long issues that had recently begun to profoundly affect my well-being.   There was one treatment specifically that changed the course of my “disease” process.   I have moved around quite a bit in the past ten years and I think Carmen is one of the best acupuncturists in the country.”  --NU, acupuncturist, Florida


“Not only is Carmen a wonderful person, but she is also an amazing acupuncturist.  Carmen’s love towards helping others is obvious within her treatments.  I have been her patient for the past year and a half, and she has helped me through anxiety, chronic stomach pain, and skin breakouts. Apart from treating me in her office, Carmen also recommends vitamins, herbs, and supplements so I can continue my treatment at home.  My stomach pain and anxiety have drastically decreased, and I am very pleased with my skin.   Carmen’s acupuncture is the fastest and most affordable way towards a positive lifestyle change!” --KJ, Student, Pacific Palisades


“I had not received acupuncture for a good year, and last week, I had my first 5 Element Acupuncture session with Carmen! All I can say... it was an amazing experience! My first session was met with a compassionate heart and a true listener. I was put at ease immediately. =)  The session itself was painless. And... I left revitalized, centered, and more strengthened in myself and where I wanted to take my life. Acupuncture rocks... and when it addresses my emotional growth... Carmen is the one to go to.” --VF, Acupuncturist, Koreatown (Yelp! Review)


“I've been to a number of acupuncturists before but what makes Carmen stand out is the warmth and compassion she brings to her practice.   She is a healer who is truly interested not only in the treatment of your physical body but your spiritual, mental and emotional body as well.  Just being in the same room with her is uplifting; she has a calming presence that lets you know immediately that you are in good hands.  Whether she's treating me for a headache or a frown line (her expertise covers cosmetic acupuncture, infertility and stopping smoking as well as more common maladies), she is always thorough, kind, gentle and interested in what is going on in your life and how it is affecting you and I always leave her office feeling balanced, energized and optimistic and really, does it get any better than that?” -- AS, Hollywood (Yelp! Review)


“Carmen is an excellent acupuncturist and a wonderful person!  She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and very professional.  I had never had acupuncture before, and Carmen was kind, gentle, understanding and very attentive which made the whole process very smooth and illuminating.  Carmen's treatments have boosted my energy level, reduced my acid reflux and my food cravings, and after each treatment I feel absolutely wonderful!  She's fantastic and I was sold after my first visit.  I recommend her highly!”  --VM, Grandmother, Pacific Palisades


“Carmen Navarro is a highly skilled acupuncturist who is deeply and passionately committed to her patients' health and well-being. She loves what she does and it comes across in her practice. She is caring, intelligent, well-versed in acupuncture and other Oriental healing practices, and a true professional. She has helped me tremendously through her practice of acupuncture and reiki. I highly recommend her to anyone experiencing any health issues. She's amazing and I cannot say enough about how kind and professional she is.” --SL, photographer, Hollywood


“I've had a number of wonderful treatments from Carmen and she's fabulous!  I hadn't had acupuncture before and she was great with answering my questions (without judgment) and explaining the process.  And not only is she knowledgeable about acupuncture, but she adds other forms of healing, like reiki, when her patients could use a little extra boost as well.  Her treatments literally stopped PMS symptoms that were making me sick every month and even keeping me out of work.  Plus she's just so likeable.  You'll totally walk away wanting her as your friend, as well as your acupuncturist.”  --HM, attorney, Los Angeles (Yelp!

"I have been to other acupuncturists but Carmen is my favorite.  Every once in a while I get muscle spasms in my back, usually from stress.  They would last anywhere from a day to several days but I have learned that If I go to Carmen when it starts to hurt, she can get the pain to go away before it becomes debilitating.  I get them way less frequently now.  She has also helped get rid of my migraines and increase my overall energy level which has been amazing.  I guess it should be obvious but I have found that going to the right acupuncturist makes all the difference.  Thank You Carmen!!!!!" --PR, musician, Pacific Palisades


“Carmen has been treating me for a few weeks now, and I can't stress enough how wonderful she is. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, kind, funny...Yes, I'm a fan - I can go on and on. She has not only helped me relieve migraines and chronic back pain, but has also assisted me with a little will power here and there (we all need a little help sometimes :)).   I highly recommend her if you're in need of a great acupuncturist.”  --JS, Los Angeles (Yelp!
