I have felt fantastic since the cupping. All my family and friends thought I was nuts when they saw my pictures I posted on Facebook.  But now they are all inundating me with Michael Phelps cupping pics and articles and asking me questions.  Crazy good timing!  I have been running better than I have in well over a year. My sciatic or piriformis pain is 99% better.  I don't care if I perpetually  have circles on my body because I feel so great!   I'll see you soon. Thank you again! -Dixie (Marathon runner)


 Thank you for my healing treatment! You know what you're doing and I appreciate it! I have been using acupuncture for medical needs and well being for 30 years. I have been to many different doctors throughout this time. I recently discovered Dr. Emmanuel Sargenti L.Ac. and am extremely impressed with his vast understanding of our body, mind and spirit. He is very compassionate and is a great listener on top of being intuitive. His knowledge of food, herbs, alternative supplements and well being are extensive. He is a true healer and asset to the health community.


I have been feeling so much better since I started to come see you. The acupuncture treatments energize me while at the same time, calm me down so I have sustained energy without worrying. Im very grateful that you figured out with simple blood tests which supplements I needed to take to feel better and I continue to improve more every day. I forgot to tell you another wonderful change since I started working with you is that I wake up in the morning with full energy for the day-it was not like this before! Thank You!!! 

Im loving this diet you put me on!! Energy is up, sugar cravings are GONE! mental focus and clarity are back! ...What else is in store???

I'm still on the diet you recommended. Keto diet. I'm much more focused, more energy, and feeling great!! I can get by on less sleep yet seem to have more energy.  I think I've lost some fat and gaining muscle. I do the fat bombs for my cocoa addiction. Lol. Actually, my cravings for chocolate and sweets are not there anymore. However, I still take cocoa in its natural state. Loving it!!


I have been on a search for the past two years for relief to symptoms I feel are associated with hypothyroidism, which I was diagnosed with about six years ago.  Initially, I was put on 20 mcg of levothyroxine....and at every six month check up, the dosage would increase.  Presently, I am taking 125 mcg.  An endocrinologist I was referred to by my general doctor....at my INSISTENCE....told me my joint pain, fatigue, immune issues....had absolutely nothing to do with my thyroid.  Yet everything I read on my own did not hold true to this medical finding.  The only course of remedy, according to this doctor, was to lose weight...and keep increasing the levothyroxine.  I do know that weight is certainly a part of my poor health, so I decided to seek out acupuncture as a method to assist in this....hoping it would also alleviate some of my other discomforts.

I had the great fortune to come across Emmanuel Sargenti, who has an office very near my home and who so conveniently offers some evening hours.  From the initial visit, I felt almost immediate relief from main of my aches....I was sleeping better....I had more energy....my appetite was suppressed.  I've had more relief to my symptoms in the past month than I have in years of investigating what more I could do to help myself.  Emmanuel Sargenti specializes in thyroid issues and has offered an arsenal of great information and tools to bring my health up to par.  I would highly recommend his services to anyone struggling with autoimmune issues, sleep, anxiety, pain, hormonal upset.....the man is a cure all!!!  Thank you for putting me back on the path to feeling well.


Quick update on my back! Other than slight residual soreness and a tiny bit of stiffness on the right side, I was virtually PAIN FREE all day!!!! I am a cupping believer! I wont be needing to go in to ablate my nerves anymore thanks to you! Thank you so much, I am eternally grateful.


I wanted to thank you for my treatment yesterday. And the good news is I did a three mile walk today with no leg pain, first time in many weeks! I will definitely be back for more acupuncture treatments!

Emmanuel is as much a spiritual counselor and guide as he is an acupuncturist. He has healed my broken leg along with helping me see that I have the strength from within to heal my heart and all parts of me. His knowledge in Medicine is vast both Chinese and Western. He is a healer and it comes straight fromhis heart. His clinic has become my one hour mid-week sanctuary. He has even helped me to begin my meditation journey and helps me with weekly insights into my daily life obstacles. You would sell yourself short if you did not give this man a try to heal what's broken within. -Tabby Hanson Graham (28 year veteran stunt woman)


Emmanuel is a miracle worker!! I have had numerous injuries to my knees, back and hips, including sciatica and even diagnosed my Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroiditis when no one else found it or even cared to look.  Nothing compares to the treatments I receive and the nutritional guidance he dispenses. Emmanuel is extremely knowledgeable and he gets me moving after the first session.  I'm a "scaredy cat" of needles and he makes sure to use smaller ones to make it so I don't feel the needles. My 8 year old son also gets acupuncture and cupping for pneumonia. He has been getting pneumonia every since since he was born and with some simple dietary restrictions (no milk/dairy) and gentle needling and cupping, my son for the first time in his life didnt get pneumonia! Emmanuel is kind and makes sure my son is well aware of what is coming next. My son absolutely enjoys going there each week. Emmanuel is one of the few physicians who still take the time to sit down and go over what your major concerns are. That to me, means a lot. 

Dr. Sargenti is amazing! He makes me feel very comfortable and that he really cares about my health and truly wants me to feel better.  He took my complete health history and thoroughly went over all my health issues. He did acupuncture and cupping and both were way better than the what I've had before at other offices. He used the cups to massage my back which felt so wonderful that I didn't want it to end. Emmanuel takes my insurance and doesn't pressure sell me on anything that I don't ask for. His office is very relaxing and clean. After the session I was in a ton of traffic but I was so relaxed and zen that I didn't even care. I can't wait to go back because I feel so awesome from his treatments.

Thank you Emmanuel for being a kind caring doctor who listens to all his patients’ concerns and stories. Thank you for the information about Ferritin as well, I did not know that it was tied to immunity. You are so informative! See you soon.


Emmanuel Sargenti, L.Ac. is the best acupuncturist!!! Knowledgeable and effective treatments. I have referred Emmanuel to many people whom have all had amazing results including my own son who had severe sciatic pain and no one else could help !! A truly gifted professional!!


Emanuel is amazing and knows his stuff. He keeps everything very calm and he walks you through everything he is going to do for you for your best results. He made me feel at ease with my situation and gave me so many options to get my desired results. I couldn’t be more pleased with my progress and his professionalism yet kind hearted approach. He does not judge you and he lets you know that he is there to help you attain your goal as to why you were seeing him. Extremely knowledgeable and well put together and the office he works out of in the Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village area very clean love the smell extremely calming music the smells just make you feel calm which is part of why you’re there five stars all the way.

I have been seeing Emmanuel Sargenti, L.Ac. for acupuncture and functional medicine for 4 ½ years (primarily in his West Los Angeles office). My previous acupuncturist of 20 years who had moved out of the state referred me and introduced me to Emmanuel and for that I am grateful. Emmanuel has always been kind, gentle, healing, caring and compassionate with me. He is talented, professional and thorough. He treats the whole person—physically, emotionally and spiritually. He is able to address my complex set of conditions (including autoimmune and chronic pain) and respects the fact that I am very sensitive—to herbs, to scents and even acupuncture. (He uses smaller acupuncture needles with me.) Although I have had hypothyroidism since age 17 and have been taking thyroid medication since, he was the first to recognize and diagnose Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis from blood tests done by a medical doctor who didn’t catch the diagnosis. With his recommendation of Selenium as a supplement in addition to my Thyroid medication and diet, I have been able to get the condition under control. He recently introduced energy healing as one of his services which I have found beneficial to my healing process. I feel fortunate and grateful to know and work with Emmanuel and highly recommend him.

His office is very relaxing and clean. I look forward to my weekly visits because I feel so awesome from his treatments.


Emmanuel is nothing short of a miracle worker! He helped my life in such a positive way during one of my most trying times! I would consider him more of a spiritual therapist for me because he is so easy to talk to about anything and has a very calming presence! Although I went to Emmanuel mostly for more energy/spiritual work, he did help me cure some knee pain I had been having and neck pain! He took a lot of time with me at every appointment and I never felt rushed! His cupping techniques are my favorite and of course his acupuncture is magical! HIGHLY recommend!



I’ve gone to Integrated Acupuncture & Herbs a few times and each visit has been fantastic! The acupuncture and cupping helped me with an old neck injury and following the treatment I have noticed significant strength increase and mobility while weight lifting at the gym. His bed side manor is that of a thoughtful, knowledgeable person who genuinely cares. He’s helping me with my thyroid condition and has already helped me rule out Hashimoto’s. He’s recommended a few supplements that are great and his essential oils are second to none. I’ve used the “Anxiety” while flying and it instantly helped calm my nerves. My daughter (5), has a stutter that gets worse with her emotions, I rolled some of the Anxiety on her and the stuttering decreased with in 5-10minutes. I can be a skeptical person—but when something like this works, I think everyone should know. Dr. Sargenti and IA&H is the real deal.


I first saw Emmanuel Sargenti L.Ac. for a very bad peripheral nephropathy in my feet a year ago, with shooting pains into my lower extremities and randomly unable to stand it hurt so bad and I had terrible pain almost always and in agony every night. After the first treatment I felt amazing results right away. I went ones a week for 3 months and now I go ones a month for maintenance. He found the root cause to my peripheral nephropathy through blood testing and prescribed the missing Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D and helped me with lifestyle recommendations that were making my condition worse. Aside from the magnificent change, Emmanuel always gives me a little extra, cupping, or exercises or tips in how to stretch. Because I am not in pain every moment, I can smile every day. I always look forward to my next visit.

Emmanuel is the greatest! I was so nervous to try acupuncture for the very first time, but he talked me through it and made me feel 100% comfortable. I never feel like he's rushing and after every appointment I leave feeling so relaxed. The clinic is very clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to try acupuncture/cupping. My sciatic pain and pain between my shoulder blades (I think he called it my rhomboids) are now a thing of the past! He really knows what he's doing!


I feel so lucky to have found Emmanuel Sargenti L.Ac. for my acupuncture needs. After a failed experience with another acupuncturist I was referred to him by Workers Comp. Skeptical I entered the office, to find a sanctuary of healing with Emmanuel. His holistic approach cares about not only my physical being but my emotional being as well. He took a complete history and helped me identify areas that I could improve. He's not afraid to make suggestions out of the box to find comfort. He is reliable, responding immediately to all questions. I appreciate his sense of humor to lighten the day. His passion is evident when he talks about his work and continued training. Despite the work injury, I also have progressive MS, resulting in years of multiple doctor visits. I have a keen sense of the genuine healers versus the complacent ones. Emmanuel is the real deal, a great combination of passion and professionalism.


I feel blessed to have found Emmanuel Sargenti L.Ac. He is so very thoughtful and takes care of you both physically and mentally. I have been dealing with a number of physical issues that he has addressed amazingly that has resulted in a pain free condition. He does not use a cookie cutter approach, he takes his time to understand what is going on with you and then determine the best treatment. I highly recommend him.


I've been going to Dr. Emmanuel Sargenti L.Ac. since 2017. I see him every 2-4 weeks and he has helped me with various health issues - Epstein-Barr virus, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, acne, hormonal imbalances, and has eased my chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain. He is the absolute best, I highly recommend! -Kylie Conniff (Personal Trainer)


I have been going to Emmanuel Sargenti L.Ac. for 5 years now. I absolutely love this place so much I have recommended friends, family and co-workers!!! I feel very relaxed, at home and comfortable. Emmanuel takes the time to answer all my questions. He gives me relief from my pain. I arrive to my appointments with anxiety, pain, and stress and leave with no anxiety, less pain and no stress. I return to work more focus and energized, with better quality of sleep and lower stress levels!!! A sense of calmness that is indescribable after each session!!! The benefits gained from regular treatments without medication, wasted time spent in doctors offices, or unnecessary medical treatments. I look forward to my regular treatments with Emmanuel. If you are researching acupuncture, this is the place to go!


Dr Sargenti has been my healer for at least 18 months. I initially went to see him to help with a major double ankle injury. The acupuncture treatments helped so much... My ankles were severely damaged and he suggested I look at stem cells which made a the difference and we continued the treatments during my recovery to push it along. I think he's brilliant and thorough. Integrated Acupuncture is more than just acupuncture treatments. Because of Emmanuel my food focus has changed... I'm healthier and have more energy . My cramping issue is almost totally gone because of the supplements that he recommended. My spiritual side has expanded because he taught and shared his meditations and chanting that is now a daily part of my life. I have moved recently out of state. I miss my appointments and I miss talking to Emmanuel. I will book an appointment as soon as I know my dates to visit. Don't hesitate to contact him. You could be on your way to feeling and thinking better.
