In the Western world, acupuncture became popular sometime in the 17th century, when travel and trade between the continents sped up. It has since then been a popular and effective treatment for a number of complications and complaints, and even comes up in President Nixon’s famed 1972 China visit.

How We Work

Our acupuncture treatments are designed and customized for each individual client, so as to meet their specific requirements better. For example, if you’re seeking acupuncture for weight loss, we will use premium, thin acupuncture needles and have them inserted at specific and carefully selected Meridian points in the human body. The depths to which these needles are inserted vary according to the specific requirements of the client. The aim and object of the acupuncture treatment is to balance the energy levels and states inside the body to promote harmony and long-lasting wellness. The key to ensuring such is the selection of the right Meridian points in the right combination. We will first carry out an examination, and then devise a course of action that is most suitable for your specific requirements.

Noor Acupuncture and Wellness has operations in Encino, Tarzana, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, North Hollywood, and Woodland Hills.
