Experience Healthy Qi

Qi is our vitality, our energy, our life force. Said like the first syllable in cheetah, qi can be in various states of health and vibrancy. Our goal is to cultivate the healthiest qi possible for our patients. We enhance wellness through various techniques rooted in Traditional Asian Medicine, a system that spans several thousand years of research and refinement. We work from both the outside in, and the inside out to address the whole person: body, mind and soul.

Alanna Flanagan Boldt grew up on an apple orchard in gorgeous New Hampshire. After high school graduation, Alanna was eager for warmer weather and she attended the University of Southern California, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Alanna came to acupuncture after rupturing her hamstring. As with many patients, acupuncture was a last resort. Three days after her first treatment, she was walking without pain for the first time in 9 months. Acupuncture, cupping, diet change and herbal medicine shifted her perspective on how best to care for her wellness and prevent future injuries. She received her master’s degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University, graduating 2nd in her class. Alanna learned Japanese-style acupuncture, in the tradition of Kiiko Masumoto, at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles as a member of their pain clinic. As such, she practices the hara-based approach to acupuncture, using a minimal number of points, specializing in pediatrics, sports injury, fertility, digestive and preventative care. Most recently, Alanna has been the head acupuncturist at the renowned Khalsa Medical Clinic, where she has treated patients with acupuncture for six years.  In addition, Alanna lectures and moderates panels as an advocate of Traditional Asian Medicine, and offers continuing education classes to other acupuncturists. Alanna is an avid hiker, mommy and gluten-free baker.

Tom Boldt hails from the East Coast, having grown up in Philadelphia and earning his bachelor’s from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. An exchange semester in Southern California was all the motivation he needed to relocate to the West Coast after graduation. While in Los Angeles, Tom discovered the benefits of acupuncture and qi gong after injuring his back. He found no relief from standard Western care and sought alternatives. Within two months of acupuncture, massage, herbs and qi gong, Tom’s back pain resolved. He was sleeping better, his digestion improved and his stress level diminished. He was hooked; this medicine was his calling. He received his master’s degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University. After graduation, Tom spent a good part of two years at sea treating patients on cruise ships. After returning to dry land, Tom was selected for a prestigious fellowship at the Tao of Wellness where he spent nearly six years learning from Drs. Mao and Daoshing Ni. Tom’s specialties include: women’s and men’s fertility, orthopedics and pain, digestive health, palliative cancer care, as well as pediatrics. Tom treats his patients using acupuncture, herbs, nutritional counseling, tui-na massage and medical qi gong. In his spare time, Tom stays dry in the ocean using his stand-up paddle board, cultivates his yoga and qi gong practices, plays catch with various flying objects, and with his wife, raises a glorious baby girl.
