I first started coming to Emily Kiba for acupuncture treatments related to back pain issues about two years ago. Her tender way of treating patients is something to be noted, as this is coming from a person who had never done acupuncture before and was nervous initially. However, after a few treatments the pain was noticeably alleviated. She then introduced me to a unique holistic treatment that I had yet to become familiar with called Moxibustion. Her acupuncture treatments proved effective, so I agreed to also try the Moxibustion. I have now continued to do Emily's Moxibustion for about a year and a half, and it has greatly improved my immune health. I have not gotten sick this year, nor last year. Everyone in my office was passing each other the flu, but I was the only one in the office that managed to keep from getting sick. I have referred two of my colleagues to enlist her services in providing this both lesser known and proven treatment option. Emily truly has a talent for what she does.
Prior to my visits with Emily I had experienced two painful miscarriages that were both damaging physically and emotionally. She helped me recover and prepare my body for a healthy pregnancy through acupuncture, loquat moxibustion, and herbs. Due to my age and history, I was very afraid I would not be able to have children. When we found out I was pregnant, Emily prescribed me herbs and adjusted the acupuncture and loquat moxibustion each week depending on the different ailments I had throughout my pregnancy: nausea, back pain, constipation and hemorrhoids. She helped me physically and emotionally, in her nurturing demeanor and always positive spirit. I had a very smooth labor and delivery and now have a very, healthy and happy baby. I was very stressed and had a lot of anxiety during my pregnancy, yet my child has a very calm demeanor which I attribute to the the acupuncture and herbs during my pregnancy. I am so grateful for the wonderful treatment I received and my very happy and healthy acupuncture baby.”
Emily is my miracle healer. I am only 41 years old and have always been in top health, doing yoga and swimming and running all my life. I don’t even eat red meat and somehow i was diagnosed with mild arthritis. My hips and joint pain were so bad that my yoga poses hurt and no CBD creams or oils helped. Emily was referred to me by a nice Japanese acupuncture man so I knew i was in good hands. She’s the nicest soul I have met. I feel very blessed to meet her. I have been to many acupuncturists but she isn’t he typical LA kind. She is very kind, cares a lot about health, and does such a great job. She did cupping, loquat treatment, and I cannot thank God enough for meeting her and getting my health back.

About me

Emily Eriko Kiba is a licensed acupuncturist (LAc) by the California Acupuncture Board and a certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl OM) by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Emily graduated from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine, the No. 1 school in California in the field of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).

She incorporates a unique style, KAN (Korean Acupuncture Nei Jing )style, in her acupuncture practice to balance Yin and Yang, which is the root of all of your symptoms. She also combines the treatment with cupping, loquat moxibustion, and /or herbal medicine as needed.

Loquat Moxibustion is a heat therapy that is very effective in boosting energy and immune system, promote blood and qi circulation, alleviates pains and muscle stiffness, digestive issues, fertility issues, skin issues, etc.

Emily has also studied Dermatology under Mazin Alhafaji and am a member of the International TCM Dermatology Association. She is qualified to treat patients with skin issues with acupuncture and herbal medicine.

Emily has also studied Holistic Nutrition at the American College of Holistic Nutrition and Macrobiotic diet and gives nutritional advice to her patients.

She treats patients from all ages, from 0 onwards.

My Philosophy of Care

I got really inspired into Eastern Medicine especially when I was working for a company in Japan treating people with Loquat Moxibustion and how effective it was on some difficult diseases and thought one day she would like to come to the US to introduce this therapy to help people regain their optimal health.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

They all love the treatments. They are quite surprised that the needles are not painful as they had expected and they find themselves very relaxed after a while. I usually find them a sleep when I come into the room again to either check on them or time to take out the needles. They love the cupping, and loquat moxibustion also gives them relaxation. Even the pediatrics love it!

My Inspiration

In Eastern Medicine, we focus on balancing Yin and Yang energy. Yin is our substance portion (blood, body fluids, etc ) and Yang is the action and function, like gas and engine in a car. We need gas and engine for the car to run, in the same way we need Yin and Yang in balance to maintain optimum health. However, our Yin and Yang gets imbalanced due to the stress factors in our daily living and this imbalance is the ROOT of the cause to all of our symptoms, so acupuncture works to help get the Yin and Yang back into balance and treat the root of our cause. In this way, we can treat the body holistically.

Emily is truly gifted and an angel that has come into my life. Upon meeting her, I was welcomed by a warm smile and calming effect. Her intuition is truly awe inspiring. With a gentle touch and her natural ease of listening, understanding, identifying and engaging, she immediately had an impact on my mind, body and spirit. I was diagnosed with shingles exactly two months ago and before finding Emily I was going to a few other acupuncturists, multiple doctors and taking many pain medications to ease the pain to just get through the day. I have been dealing with postherpetic neuralgia and no one was able to help me except for Emily who is the only one that has been able to ease my pain and calm my nerves. I am at the point where I don't need to take medications anymore. If you or someone you know that suffers from shingles, please don't look further and book your appointment with Emily right away. She truly has magic hands and will provide you with the best care to help you. If I could give her 10 stars I would!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Emily!!!
