Welcome to Joey Komada, L.Ac.

​​Relax the mind, heal the spirit, and balance the body with acupuncture and oriental medicine.

Hello, I am a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist and practice Asian medicine in the South Bay of Los Angeles.  I’m happy that you’ve chosen to visit my site and to learn more about what I do.

This holistic medicine that I practice is just as effective today as it was nearly 2000 years ago because it treats the entire person, not just your symptoms, so that a balance is achieved between the internal organs, the exterior appearance, and the mental well-being.  Then the body with its natural wisdom can ultimately heal itself.  This means that acupuncture is a cost-effective medicine.
​​The ancient Chinese knew that to maintain health and vitality, our bodies needed regular balancing and renewal . An acupuncture treatment four times a year at the change of seasons can function as a general body tune-up to maintain our health. In this way, acupuncture can function as a truly preventative medicine.  

Or it can zero in on more specific ailments ranging from pain, to low energy, to digestive problems, reproductive system issues, or many other ailments.  Acupuncturists are considered Primary Health Care Providers in California and in several other states  and many  insurance companies cover treatment.

In conjunction with acupuncture, herbal medicine  can enhance the effects of the needles and maintain the progress we make together in between treatments.
