Monika Kobylecka, L.Ac
Monika Kobylecka is a licensed acupuncturist who joined the Akasha team in April 2010 and has been thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate on many challenging cases. You’ll find her arriving at the clinic with books and research materials always excited about finding the best way to address patients’ needs.
Monika completed her Master of Science degree at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine where she was first introduced to the Japanese acupuncture. What shaped her current practice was meeting renowned Japanese practitioner Kiiko Matsumoto in 2004 and learning this master’s unique style. It was during one of the first classes Monika took with Ms. Matusmoto that she discovered how acupuncture can be practical and interactive - something that a patient doesn’t have to believe is working; they can feel it working right during the treatment. Her pursuit of learning the techniques and theories of Kiiko Matsumoto Style and of Japanese acupuncture continue to this day. Monika attends numerous continuing education seminars taught by Ms. Matsumoto and assists in her clinic in Boston several times per year. She brings this knowledge back to her private practice where, through careful research of each patient’s case, she is able to incorporate Ms. Matsumoto’s work into patient’s treatments.
For years, Monika has worked with patients whose quality of life has declined due to chronic pain, debilitating illness or persistent symptoms. She finds each treatment an opportunity to restore health and shift the focus from daily limitations to enthusiasm about each day.
In addition to her practice at Akasha, Monika received privileges at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where she treats kids in the pain clinic and is the clinic supervisor for the CHLA-YSU Pediatric Acupuncture Program.
