About Us

Toru Kodama L.Ac. has over 19 years' experience as an acupuncturist in two different countries, in the USA (state of California) and in Japan.

He graduated from Japan Central Acupuncture and Moxibustion College (Hanada College), obtained his license to practice Shiatsu, Acupuncture, and Moxibustion. He worked for an orthopedic clinic in Tokyo after graduating and was strongly influenced by Master Fukaya’s moxibustion (moxa) therapy. Master Fukaya used mostly moxa for any disease and symptoms and rarely used acupuncture needles. Prior to pursuing studies in Oriental medicine, Toru received BA in international business at Aoyama Gakuin Univ. in Tokyo, Japan.

After years of rigorous studies and treating numerous patients, he came to the United States in order to pursue his career globally and study more from a different point of view. He earned a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine from Emperor’s College. He is licensed by the state of California to practice Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. He started Kodama Japanese Acupuncture after working for an acupuncture clinic in West Hollywood, CA. His practicing has been focused on Men's health (prostate disorder, erectile dysfunction/impotence, urinary incontinent), Stress management (broken heart, anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD), and Pain. He has studied with Kiiko Matsumoto to learn the Nagano style of Japanese acupuncture. Kiiko style and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) are both based on the Chinese classics and modern medical pathophysiology to bring out the best in both.

He loves acupuncture more and more with focusing on Nagano-Kiiko style, and Fukaya moxa. His emphasis on health and healing with a passion for serving people and society will never end.
