KAT FAROVITCH, L.Ac.
I’ve been a Licensed Health Practitioner since 2002. After suffering from many chronic health issues as a child and young adult, and unable to find any results with conventional Western Medicine, I began my quest for natural health solutions. In the midst of working on healing myself, I garnered various professional credentials in the wellness field, realizing that Healthcare is my life’s purpose. Today in my practice, I often find that complicated and “scary” diagnoses can be translated into simple imbalances that are easily resolved. Reframing challenges so that they become empowering opportunities for growth are critical to healing, in my personal and professional experience.
Currently, I hold a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology with an emphasis on Nutrition, and Certifications in Holistic Nutrition, Health Coaching, Massage Therapy, Hair Mineral Analysis, and various Energetic and Intuitive Healing Modalities (Theta Healing, Body Talk, MindScape, Medical Biomagnetism, Emotion Code & Body Code, and Quantum Touch). Often referred to as a “Health Detective,” I am unwavering in my mission to uncover and effectively treat the root cause of imbalances in the body. I am appreciative of my own health challenges, as they have fostered deep empathy for suffering and a wealth of health knowledge to offer others.
Kat has been instrumental in my road to healing. You can tell she truly cares about her patients and is invested in their health. I’ve been to several specialists trying to figure out my digestive issues to no avail. Kat’s deep knowledge of the body’s systems combined with her expertise in nutrition have led to major improvements in my digestion, respiratory issues, and overall anxiety. Kat is a gem and a true healer.
Yesterday I couldn’t move my arm. My shoulder was frozen and it was very painful. I saw Kat for acupuncture and within 45 minutes the pain dropped from about an 8 to a 3. I also gained significant range of motion where I could barely move before. I was amazed!!! If you’re in the LA area I strongly encourage you to see her!
Needle-free pain management
I had periodic wrist and shoulder pain, triggered by CrossFit exercises. I had tried stretches, braces, and other possible solutions, to no avail. I don’t like needles, so acupuncture was not an option. Kat offered a needle-free treatment of cupping instead. After just one session, I noticed immediate improvement in my workout the following day. Would definitely recommend for any level of athlete and/or workout enthusiast.
MRT = ENERGY RESTORED!
For years I had been feeling super tired; falling asleep at my desk at work, dozing off during meetings, and I couldn’t remember the last movie I didn’t sleep through. A friend recommended acupuncture, so I thought I’d give it a shot. On my first visit I told her that someone had suggested maybe I was iron-deficient, to which she responded with an, “Oh no they di-int!” look. She taught me that most people are not only NOT iron-deficient, but iron-toxic. So she treated me for that and I began feeling better within a few days. She then had me take a food sensitivity test that indicated all of the foods that caused inflammation in my body to varying degrees. I discovered that there were numerous foods that I had thought were healthy (e.g., almonds, olive oil, soy, peas) that were not good for me. I eliminated those foods from my diet and now, for the first time in my life, I have energy when I eat and can actually watch a movie in its entirety. Little did I know that when I walked into that first acupuncture appointment that it would change my life more than I could have imagined. Thanks, Kat!
After just one treatment for depression and brain fog, I was amazed at the results! I had so much more energy and felt clarity for the first time in a long time, after an extended battle with these issues. Kat also helped my friend with a pinched nerve and another with digestive issues. Kat is so much more than an acupuncturist– she is a one-stop-shop for treating just about anything that may be blocking your optimal well-being.”
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2008. In November of 2017 I went to Kat seeking relief from disease. She started me on weekly acupuncture treatments. In our first session I realized Kat was unlike any other health professional I had ever met. She listened to me. She took the reports of my symptoms seriously. Never did she discount my experiences like many doctors I had seen in the past. She performed acupuncture and relieved my stress and actually diminished the severity of some of my limb numbness. But Kat did so much more than just acupuncture. She opened a dialogue with me about nutrition and well being. She shared her years of research with me. Without being preachy or pedantic, she made me aware of so many changes I could make and made me feel empowered to initiate these on my own. Since seeing Kat, I have dramatically decreased the inflammation in my body, which has made me more energized, improved balance in my legs, and sharpened my mental focus. I have lost over 30 pounds since I started seeing her! Kat is responsive and supportive in our correspondences, which goes a long way in keeping me motivated. I cannot recommend her enough.
Bye bye shoulder pain!
Thank you so much! You fixed me.
Weight-loss & digestive health
Working with Kat Farovitch has completely changed me for the better! I was having some serious stomach issues along with weight-loss challenges and by having Kat introduce MRT testing to me, I now have a completely customized diet plan to avoid the foods and chemicals that were making me feel sick and inflamed. The results I personally noticed from following the diet strictly: Eliminated all of my headaches, indigestion, and teeth sensitivity, I finally was able to lose 15 lbs, it regulated my menstrual cycle, I’m sleeping so well and just a lot of other little things. It’s been 6 months since I got my results and I’ve never felt better! It’s completely worth the money & commitment because if you’re not feeling good in general, it’s most likely the foods you’re eating. This test can TELL you what is making you sick and then Kat can help you understand the results and how to work them into your lifestyle. I can’t recommend her and the MRT test enough. Thank you Kat!!!
Lifelong acne, histamine intolerance, and anxiety—GONE!
Kat is the only person who has ever truly helped me resolve my chronic health issues. I have had skin issues and impaired detoxification for as long as I can remember and I have literally tried everything with no results. Until I began working with Kat. She not only truly cares about her patients and is utterly committed to their getting well, but she also educates each patient so that they can continue on their journey of self-healing for years to come. She is able to deconstruct any disorder you have, and explain it in the simplest way so that it’s not scary and overwhelming to deal with. That is invaluable, in my opinion. I learned why I was imbalanced and exactly how to fix it with very common-sense approaches. She uses nutrition as the cornerstone of her healing approach and also offers acupuncture, cupping, whole food-based supplements as reinforcements. She is a wealth of knowledge. Honestly, there has never been a topic I’ve brought to her that she didn’t seem to be an expert on. And what she doesn’t know, she researches until she’s an expert on it! I’ve never met someone who is so committed to her work. If you’ve been struggling with health problems and tried everything to no avail–do yourself a favor and go get cured with Kat.
Intuitive Reading & Mold
Kat is absolutely focused on you. She is a great listener and solution-oriented. She is a wealth of information! She is extremely intuitive! After having various symptoms, she did an Intuitive Reading for me and told me I had mold in my apartment. I really didn't think I did. Then, I checked the apartment and did in fact have a leak and black mold growing in the closet! We got rid of the mold and my "allergic" symptoms improved almost instantly! Kat's recommendations are always spot on. She suggested I try earthing/grounding and I started having the best sleep (after suffering from horrible insomnia!) and was better able to concentrate on my studies. If I have a food or supplement question, she is really great at remotely muscle-testing for what I need and she is always on point. And the greatest thing about Kat is that she wants your wellness as much as you do! She is truly invested in you and absolutely in tune.
