I've never had acupuncture before and frankly, needles scare me!! But Zena was so great at calming my nerves. There was no pain and lots of relief after only 1 visit. Her office is clean and relaxing. She is absolutely profesional and really knows her stuff.
If you are considering acupuncture, call Zena. If you're not considering it, you should!! Get ready to be healed.

Conor Logan saved the life that I love. No exaggeration.
I've been healthy and active my whole life, yet slipped a disc (1cm extrusion) in my back and was under excruciating pain. I was prescribed the strongest pain killer available outside a hospital and it wouldn't even touch the 9-10 out of 10 daily pain. My back muscles were spasming so bad that nothing could relax them. (Neither mild acupuncture, massage nor muscle relaxants.)
I had tried other acupuncturists but the results would last 10min to an hour or until I sat in a chair - then the pain would return. Massage was even more of a waste.
I was scheduled for an epidural and had met with two leading neurosurgeons, and it looked like a back surgery was quickly approaching. I would have done it too as the pain was unbearable (having dealt with it for months.)
Then came Dr. Logan, who on the first treatment gave me a rigorous acupuncture treatment. I felt good and the amazing thing was I woke up at a 1 out of 10 pain level. That morning I was scheduled for the epidural, so feeling ok and having approval from my orthopedist I skipped the procedure. I was amazed because I went 24 hours without needing my prescription. The following night, Conor gave me a second acupuncture treatment. To my delight, I haven't taken another pain killer since. My muscles were able to relax and my back healed (basically the extrusion broke up and dissolved.) In combination with Dr. Logan's advice plus soaking in hot Epsom baths and doing abdominal exercise, I've recovered without needing a life/activity changing surgery.
Conor does amazing work, and his heart is really in it. I really respect his passion for healing and helping others. I wholeheartedly support and recommend him. 100%!
(: Thank you Conor for helping me when it seemed the worst was inevitable!
These guys are wonderful. I had a reoccurring tendinitis sneaking back in my wrist. It usually takes quite awhile and lot's of steroids painfully shot into my wrist to make it bearable, but Zena got rid of it completely in a day with acupuncture. I was a skeptic about the effectiveness of the treatment, but now I'm thoroughly convinced!
Use these guys! You won't be sorry!
Had my first ever and subsequently many more acupuncture sessions with Conor going into the end of last year. Conor was professional, punctual, incredibly knowledgable, a great listener. Once he had a full view understanding of my needs he applied tremendous skill, researched deeper into Chinese medicine, followed up on my recovery and carried in him a sense of earnest, genuine concern for my need to improve and move on in life healed. I can't recommend Conor's services higher. His facility was inviting, unique and primely located, too! Let him work his magic with needles, cups and herbs. Go forth, you're in excellent hands!
I'm a barber. I have been cutting hair for about fifteen years. Pain comes with the job. Back pain, neck pain, hand pain. All of the above. For the last few weeks I have been having pain in my right elbow. I figured I would do as I always do and work through it.
Last week if felt as if someone was turning a knife into my elbow and I had a lot of trouble making it through the day.
I got on good ol' Yelp and looked for an acupuncturist with decent hours that might be able to see me that night.
On here I found Conor. I emailed him and went back to work. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to check my email for a few hours, because it was a busy day. He had written me back and said he could see me, but by the time I called him back he was already heading home from work.
He was kind enough to go out of his way and deal with traffic just so that he could head back and help me.
And help me he did. I have had acupuncture treatments in the past, but nothing that helped to the extent of what he was able to do for me.
This review is already long winded, so I will just say that if you are in pain and have doubts about non-western treatments, check him out!
He was super professional and kicked ass at his job.
Thanks again, Conor. I will be seeing you again soon.
Conor has been a wonderful life coach and healer. I suffered some head trauma years ago that plagued me with headaches and a lot of full body physical stress. He was able to help me heal my head trauma and alleviate the maladies associated with my post traumatic concussion syndrome. He was able, through acupuncture and herbal prescriptions, to help me stop taking the very powerful anti seizure medication that was being used to treat my symptoms. I can't thank him enough, and I love being medication and headache for!!!
Zena and Conor are amazing and such professionals. They have a true passion for their work and it is seen time and time again with their patients and the raving reviews that they receive. Not only do they do acupuncture but also yoga and mediation which this busy working mom of two needs. I am also appreciative that they take insurance. Thank you for being such an asset to the community.
I've been to Zena several times for acupuncture for a variety of symptoms. I truly feel it has helped me a lot. Zena takes the time to chat with me and customizes the treatment for my needs. I've also found it very relaxing as she plays a meditation during the treatment. Highly recommended!
I have nothing but great things today about what this team has done for me and my community. I have used them for weight loss help (sleep, digestion, stress) and friends have used them for anxiety relief. They explain the whole process, which for me was wonderful as i had never had acupuncture and made me feel at ease with the whole process. Bonus, they take insurance!!! Thanks to them and what they have done for me!!
This was my first experience with acupuncture, and I was so relieved with how comfortable Conor made me feel during our first session and also four subsequent sessions.
I'm extremely anxious and sensitive to pain. Conor sensed this intuitively and adjusts my treatments in real time to match my energy and needs. I feel 100% safe, understood, and cared for. Parking is simple. His studio is always immaculate and sterilized. He is very empathic and spiritually attuned, a good example to follow.
The treatments he provides have changed the fabric of my moment-to-moment reality; the feeling of traversing the uncertain landscape of existence requires much less effort. In other words, very positive benefits for my anxiety and other discomforts.
I cannot say enough about Dr. Logan. I'm fortunate to have found him after both traditional and alternative therapies had failed me for the better part of 2 decades.
I had been experiencing persistent male problems since my mid-20's (I'm now 43). I had seen both allopathic and holistic practitioners over the years, trying everything from synthetic hormones to hypnosis. The only solution that worked consistently was the expensive blue pill, which never really sat right with me. I knew there had to be a way for my body to heal itself naturally.
Enter Dr. Logan. After a very though examination and intake process (including specific diet and lifestyle questions), Dr. Logan traced my problem to its essential cause, mentioning 4 or 5 other symptoms that I didn't even realize I'd had. Through a series of acupuncture treatments and herbs over the past year, I've been able to progressively lower my V dosage to where I now only need 25% of the amount I was on before. Most of my other symptoms are also gone. I feel great for days after our sessions...energized, in a good mood...just more virile in general. The most remarkable thing about all this is that my busy schedule doesn't allow me to see Dr. Logan on a regular basis. I can only imagine where I'd be if I was able to see him more consistently.
Dr. Logan is an intuitive and gifted healer. He is superbly skilled at diagnosing root issues and adapting therapies as treatments continue. He's a joy to go see and his passion for helping patients really shines through. The bottom line for me is results, and I've had drastic improvement with Dr. Logan.
Recomiendo sumamente a él Dr Conor Logan todos mis problemas se fueron una vez que recibí sus terapias de acupuntura. Su servicio me enseña que él tiene la dedicación y la vocación para entender el problema de raíz. Su naturaleza espiritual hace balance con su notable experiencia en el ramo. Yo lo recomiendo definitivamente y su trabajo será sumamente reconocido con gran satisfacción.
I went to Conor after hearing some rave reviews from a friend. At the time I was dealing with some pretty awful chronic pain and it was looking like surgery might be my only solution. I'll admit it; I was kinda nervous about going to acupuncture for the first time. However, I was pleased to find Conor very much lived up to the hype - he was friendly, professional, very knowledgeable and most importantly highly effective. Also, I was just being a wuss about what I thought acupuncture would be, it was actually a pleasant experience. After my first session I immediately began to notice some pretty amazing results. Aches and pains that I'd just sorta lived with for years went away. I began going in on a weekly basis and in the course of a couple months I saw a dramatic recovery in my longstanding issues. I also appreciated that beyond the acupuncture, Conor provided a variety of suggestions for things I could do on my own to aid my recovery and ensure my longterm health. Within two months of first visiting, I'm very happy to say that surgery is off the table and I'm feeling great!

I was in LA for a convention and had a terrible flare-up of back pain that left me pretty incapacitated and in a terrible amount of pain. I was referred to Conor by a mutual friend, and he was not only able to see me quickly, he was even open to making a house call at my hotel (seriously, who does that?) I can't begin to describe how outstanding the treatment I received was. Conor was thorough and professional and even though he was focused on relieving my pain, he was also tuned into other areas of my health that were important to an effective treatment. I am an acupuncturist myself and greatly appreciated his needling technique (gentle insertion but strong Qi) and his focus on results. I got off the table with a 90% reduction in pain, which is pretty phenomenal after just one treatment. If I lived in LA I'd go back to Conor in a heartbeat.
