I've been working with Danica for just about a year and it has been a transformational life experience. I've been to 3 other practices in the area that focus on fertility and they really don't compare. At those places I was prescribed herbs and treated with needles but beyond a glance at my tongue no one talked to me about what was going on with me. I was initially hesitant to see Danica because I thought I would have a more authentic experience with a practitioner that was Chinese. After frustration with a practice I was with, I decided to try her out by going to a day long retreat. I was blown away. Her emphasis on frame of mind and her ability to give you the tools to get to the right one were incredibly powerful. If you're looking for a fertility acupuncturist then look no further. Danica and her staff are exactly what you need. Really.
Danica is a gift and a miracle worker. I had been struggling with amenorrhea (no period) for almost 3 years. When my husband and I decided that we were ready to start trying to have children, I knew I needed to take a more proactive approach to address the issue. After going to several medical specialists and being told that I needed to gain weight or start taking a heavy dose of hormones, I decided to seek a healthier, natural approach by giving acupuncture a try. A good friend of mine highly recommended Danica. Thankfully, I listened to her. From the moment I met Danica, I felt like she was a trusted friend/therapist. Not only did she provide me with physical treatment, but she also helped me rethink my lifestyle by offering emotional support and guidance. After seeing her for two months, my period came back. Danica suggested I see a fertility doctor to help keep the momentum going and gave me an excellent recommendation. One month later, I was pregnant! Danica is a dream come true. I looked forward to seeing her every week. She's talented, warm, intuitive, smart and a lovely person. There is no one better than her.
I was given Danica as a gift by my best friend who adores Danica and was seeing her for fertility reason's. (which by the way worked!) I myself not getting the chance to have kids took over 1 year to get into Danica...and when the planets aligned and I made my appointment it was as if i had known Danica from another life. I came into Danica confessing all of what was going on in my life from the good to the not so good. Never in my life have I been given permission to continue on in the ways in which I deemed not so good (yup wounded jew) Instead Danica helped me see the celebration and the creative genius that loomed deeper inside of me than i understood. To be released from my own perception of inner demons is exactly what I try to do in my journey as a personal stylist's with clients in their closets. To have another women do that for me that I allowed in? I am sure all of you reading this can relate to doing too much as a women and forgetting to honor yourself. I was given Danica a gift and look how long it took me to receive it? Once in Danica's care-very easy to receive! The intro with Danica that is part of your session is Danica at her most transparent sharing and relieving YOU of YOUR self! Those little needles at the end? The cherry on top!

About me

Well Women Acupuncture refines the traditional application of Chinese medicine to create a style that addresses the modern woman’s emotions, spiritual needs, and the stress she faces daily. This approach yields healing on a deeper, long-lasting level that goes beyond treatment of physical symptoms.

Our practitioners specialize in treating infertility, peri-menopause, thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, digestive disorders, and auto-immune conditions, and at Well Women Acupuncture, our successful pregnancy rate is over 60%.

That’s because our patients benefit from the collaborative efforts of Well Women practitioners, progressive medical doctors, and our online fertility course, The Seed Fertility Program. Our high success rate includes women who conceived naturally from our combined approach of acupuncture, herbs, and The Seed Fertility Program, as well as women who incorporated our holistic methodology into their Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) protocols. Since 2001, more than 1,300 healthy children have been born as a result!

Each session allows for ample talk time for patients to share and create a treatment plan that is personalized and designed to help you reach your individual goals. We provide holistic guidance regarding diet, lifestyle, stress management, emotional support, and when necessary, we work closely with your medical doctors to create a team approach for your healing, assisting with IVF and Egg Freezing protocols.

We intentionally created a warm space that relaxes all 5 senses, including soothing sights, calming scents, and the sound of delta brain wave induced music, all of which give patients subconscious permission to quiet the noise from the outside world and relax on a deeper level, before the treatment even begins. This safe and nurturing environment helps women become more receptive and open to their own intrinsic healing ability.

If there were 10 stars I would give her 11. Danica Thornberry is brilliant, talented and a heart of gold. After a challenging recovery to labor, Danica was diligent and thorough in covering ALL aspects of my needs. From migranes, to potential thyroid, to anxiety, Danica was loving and healing. After over 20 + years of head aches and now post pardom hormones on top of everything else, she was a miracle worker. I went from 5 headaches/ 3 migraines a week , to 1. Each week has gotten better and better. I was apprehensive about herbs and what I like to call the "hokey pokey" (acupuncture) but now I am hooked and truly believe in her work. I am so glad I took this leap to try her. I was desperate and she was supportive and my rock throughout this time in my life.Look no further- she is the only one to go to in LA. No matter how far you live, its worth feeling the best you've ever felt. Thank you for all you do Danica!
Danica is a God-send. Truly. Her book is so inspirational to anyone struggling with infertility. I only went for one visit with her, and then scheduled one of her associates for my IVF transfer (She was out of town but it worked out beautifully with Kristi). Danica spent time during our visit really trying to understand our situation, and the frustrations surrounding it. She had such positive and helpful suggestions for re-directing our thoughts to try to let go and trust, versus stressing over a situation we cannot control. I was seeing my regular local acupuncturist as well, as the location of this office is far for me. But the one visit with Danica was really worth it, and I'm also glad I scheduled them to come to the actual transfer. I was so much more relaxed for this transfer compared to my 1st one, and it was all because of Kristi, whose presence was calming during what could have been a stressful situation. Our 2nd transfer was a success and I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant!
Danica and her office are quite simply the BEST. This review is long overdue. I've tried about 10 acupuncturists (both western and more traditional eastern style) over the last 5 years all over the Westside. This is more of a non-traditional place - in a really good way. Danica is kind, generous, nurturing, and goes above and beyond for her patients. She is a wonderful listener and always has several solutions to help whatever ailment you're dealing with that week.The treatment rooms are super cozy with zen music piped in. Usually I fall asleep and have the best nap. You definitely get your money's worth here - yes, there may be cheaper places in town but you will feel rushed and the acupuncture will feel clinical, not therapeutic. Parking can be a bit of a challenge (garage or street parking) and you will have to handle claims directly with your insurance (they provide superbills) but once you step into the office, it's an oasis.
