Foster Ryan at Oasis Healing Center in Mar Vista has the magic touch. Had been dealing with back pain off & on for 6 years. I am quite the skeptic as many of the treatments I have tried did not help & in some cases made it worse. However, this acupuncturist has got me on my feet & moving again. He also took his time to find out not only about my history with injury & pain, but took the time to find out a bit about myself. Over the years I found it is one thing to get help with pain, but it is just as important to trust who's helping you. All that's left to say in finally some relief!
I was recommended to Dr. Pam by a friend of mine. I hadn't been to a chiropractor in about 5 years - I've been about 3 times to help with constant migraines. I woke up sometime last week with a dull headache and throbbing in the back of my neck. When the feeling didn't go away after 4-5 days I decided going in for a back adjustment would help like it did it the past. Dr. Pam was not only able to make a same-day appointment for me, a new patient, but she is obviously so knowledgeable and skilled at what she does! After my 20 minute appointment, I walked out feeling SO much better. My headache had disappeared, I felt much more relaxed and was able to sleep like a baby that night. And she's great for anyone that typically nervous about visiting the chiropractor. She has such a relaxing presence and keeps your mind occupied in such a way that you don't even realize or worry about what she's doing. I will definitely use Dr. Pam in the future and strongly recommend her for anyone that needs a good chiropractor in the area!
John Brauer - I have lived in the neighborhood for a long time now and always wondered what Oasis was all about. About a year ago my wife sent me to see John about a chronic shoulder problem. All I can say is John has made an enormous difference! I can sleep! I can move! I can put my seatbelt on without agonizing pain! John is also a super nice and patient person. He is very thorough, has an amazingly deep knowledge of the body, and keeps meticulous notes on what he finds and the progress you make with him. Even when faced with a troublesome spot that does not present an easy diagnosis John takes the time, on his own, to research and confer with his fellow experts to zero in on the source of the problem. He did this with a knee problem I was having and it's this kind of all-around engagement and partnership that I really appreciate. Highly recommended! Take care of yourself and go see John Brauer!

James Platts has helped me so much. The first time I went to him was when I had an injury in my elbow and could not straighten my arm nor relieve the pain. Within 5 sessions, all of the pain was gone and I was able to straighten my arm. This is after I had been to many people who were unable to help me. He knows how to find the muscles which are causing the discomfort, and bring a lot of relief. He understands so much about the body and how everything is connected. I am so grateful for his work.
This review is for Cindy who is awesome!!! I honestly don't get colonics that often but every now and then I will need a little help getting regular again. I found Oasis on yelp and called to make an appointment. They directed me to Cindy who does colonic hydrotherapy as well as reiki. I made my appointment for Saturday afternoon - she's in on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays for colonics. The facilities are nice and Cindy makes you feel very comfortable. The overall experience was great and Cindy helps you through it. She is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. You also feel a lot better after! There's usually parking in the front and a lot in the back.
I was so happy to discover this healing center. The acupuncturist Foster Ryan is a gifted healer. He didn't just treat me with acupuncture, he also gave some stretching massages before the end of the session which is a rare treat. My impression on my first visit is that he's really passionate about his job and cares about providing the best healing to his patients. Besides being a licensed acupuncturist, he also practices functional medicine which is similar to what a naturopath does. I've been to different acupuncturists and he just won my vote for being the best.
