“My six months with Dr. Boxer has been better than imagined. I came to her to help ease my Stress and Anxiety. I can say that after one treatment my generalized anxiety had totally disappeared after over 10 years of suffering! If only I had gone to her before all my therapists…
Now I am participating in regular Acupuncture, taking daily vitamins, and recently did her 21 Day Detox/Cleanse, where 2 months later I continue to lose weight! I am happy to say since seeing her I have lost 15 pounds, no longer have intense PMS, and my suffering with the physical effects of anxiety has diminished. I am so glad I found Dr. Boxer”.

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 »
I am so glad I went to Dr. Boxer for help. I loved my treatments. Dr. Boxer is very knowledgeable in Fertility & Women’s Health. She was very attentive to me and my needs, and was able to enhance my IVF treatments and get my body in optimal health before and all throughout my Pregnancy. The office and patient rooms are so peaceful with light music and they smell wonderfully. I’m very happy to recommend Dr. Boxer!
Pregnant over 40! was last modified: August 22nd, 2013 by adminDr. Boxer’s well rounded knowledge and talents in nutrition, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture make her a perfectly suited health care professional for my needs. First off, I was very skeptical about the whole acupuncture thing. She has such a delicate and precise technique. You rarely feel ANYTHING!! Except of course energized after the session.
More often than not, besides treating and alleviating the aches and pains, I leave with a HIGH — feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
I’ve also availed myself of her knowledge of nutrition and Chinese herbs. I now eat very well balanced (she turned me on to excellent books and ideas that are not fads. Just great and fantastic). Several of her cold remedies and vitamins are excellent and most effective. Good energy ,knowledge, effectiveness, pleasant, accessible and flexible to the client’s needs— -that about sums up Dr. Mindy Boxer.

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 »
“I have been seeing Dr. Boxer for 10 months now and the experience has been great. She is very caring and knowledgeable. I always enjoy our weekly session as it is relaxing and soothing. After working with Dr. Boxer for 5 months utilizing Acupuncture & Herbs, my husband and I successfully conceived twins from our first IVF attempt! I strongly believe Dr. Boxer’s treatments played an important role in our success, and I am continuing Acupuncture throughout my pregnancy. I am always appreciative of her help and support. I highly recommend Dr. Boxer without any reservations!”
