- Testimonials“My family and I have seen Dr. Mindy Boxer since 1997 and during this time Mindy has treated us for a variety of health issues, both emotional and physical. Health and well being is what we recieve in results from Dr. Mindy Boxer. Dr. Boxer’s accupuncture treatments are the most effective and lasting treatments I have had. Mindy’s sensitivity and skill are paired well with her practice of Chinese Medicine.”

I tried a few different acupuncturist in Santa Monica and found that while the treatments worked for my upper back pain, the experience was much like going to the dentist. Then I started going to Dr. Boxer and had a whole different experience.
The treatment rooms are very relaxing and spa like, not at all clinical like the others. Dr. Boxer also adds lots of nice touches, like tea while you’re waiting and music of your choice while in treatment.
She did a very thorough assessment of my health, including diet, sleep, stress, medications and personal questions to see how they could be contributing to the pain and how she could customize my treatments. This was way beyond the standard form every doctor gives you to fill out and then promptly ignores.
Dr. Boxer herself is very personable and has an obvious and very genuine interest in the well being... Read more »
“We tried for 2 years to get pregnant. I have PCOS and wasn’t ovulating. I tried many fertility procedures including clomid and IVF without success. Complications from IVF left my uterus scarred, and doctors recommended I consider surrogacy. At 32 years old and healthy, I refused to give up the dream of having and carrying my own children. After researching alternative methods, we began treatment with Dr. Boxer. She is truly amazing and provided us with outstanding patient care. I say us, because she treated my husband, too! After 4 months of Acupuncture, Herbs, supplements, and Nutritional Counseling with Dr. Boxer, I was much healthier on every level, and decided to try clomid again. Not only did I become pregnant, but with identical twin girls. Dr. Boxer truly balanced my mind, body, and spirit!! I continued Acupuncture treatment during my first trimester and felt fantastic as a result. I... Read more »
I started seeing Dr. Mindy Boxer for acupuncture treatments in February. I was almost 39 and wanted to start a family. I had anticipated it taking a while to get pregnant and having to undergo potentially stressful and costly fertility treatments. But my husband and I found out in March that we were able to get pregnant on our own and would have our first child in November! I have to think that the acupuncture, which reduces stress and is reported to improve fertility, as well as the supplements Dr. Boxer provided and the guidance she offered for adopting a more healthful diet all contributed to our ability to get pregnant quickly. Dr. Boxer is knowledgeable, nurturing, has a positive energy, and is fun to work with. I look forward to my sessions with her each week, and so far I’ve had a relatively smooth pregnancy. I highly recommend Dr.... Read more »
“I started seeing Dr. Boxer when I removed my IUD and my husband and I started thinking about having a baby. I was having trouble getting my menstrual cycle regular but within a month and half of Dr. Boxer’s Acupuncture, Herbal and Vitamin treatment, I was able to regulate my period and ovulation cycle. One month later, I was pregnant!!
I continued to receive weekly Acupuncture treatments throughout my pregnancy and I have to say, it was the only thing that kept me sane. I believe that our weekly sessions are what led to a healthy, happy, stress free (and nauseas free) pregnancy. Dr. Boxer’s good natured attitude is so helpful and I looked forward to our appointments every week. When I did encounter some bumps in the road, Dr. Boxer constantly checked in on me and made sure I was doing OK. She goes above and... Read more »
I started seeing Dr Boxer after 3 months of unsuccessful TTC cycles to help regulate my menstrual cycles that continued getting longer each month. Even though it was early, Dr Boxer was warm, inviting, listened to my concerns and in addition to weekly Acupuncture, gave me a great supplement and Herbal program to help regulate my cycles and prepare my body for baby. Three weeks later I got my positive pregnancy test and am now starting my third trimester.
I have seen Dr Boxer throughout my pregnancy and believe her treatments and support have been the key in my easy pregnancy. I had very mild nausea and fatigue in the first trimester and have felt great since. I leave each appointment refreshed and relaxed.
I can’t recommend Dr Boxer enough! She is a great advocate in this journey, extremely knowledgeable about her craft, and truly cares about... Read more »
