Patient Testimonials

“You have performed magic! I feel incredible. I’m sleeping deeper, I feel calm and more balanced. Ive finally got down the vitamin times as of yesterday. I’m also taking more yin yoga classes. I cannot thank you enough! ♥️♥️♥️”

“Well, your wizardry knows no bounds it seems.  I feel A LOT better today.  My feel much more calm (more like myself) than I did yesterday (or for many, many days prior), I got a full night of sleep (amazing!), and this morning, I generally feel the least irritated than I have in weeks.  The world thanks you for that last one the most , but I appreciate it all.”

Common Questions

What is the treatment?

We use a combination of acupuncture, pharmaceutical grade supplements, and classic Chinese herbal formulas to address your condition. Sometimes, we also add focused massage techniques and bodywork to increase the efficacy, if needed.

Do I have to follow a specific diet, or do I have to start meditating?

Only if you want to. We make small suggestions you can take to help increase the speed of recovery. Many of these suggestions have the potential to make a profound effect. But it is not a requirement.

How long does it take?

Hard to answer as everyone is different, however if the case is typical, it usually takes between 2-3 months. Keep in mind, very often, this is to normalize your condition, not just mask it.

Will the herbs and supplements interact with my current medications?

We are aware of how these will interact with all aspects of your condition, and all considerations will be taken into account. In many cases, our herbal therapies can actually work together, and you may be able to modify your current medication with your medical doctor after working with us.

Will it work?

We will not lie, require up-front commitments, or just saying anything to get you in. The bottom line is your case is unique. We promise to give you our opinion, based upon experience, and let you decide from there what you want to do from there.

Brent Garcia – Elite Body Mechanic

Brent’s journey to becoming an acupuncturist and licensed massage therapist started on the soccer pitch. Soccer was a huge part of Brent’s life. He played competitively from the age of six through his late 20s, even after having his left ACL surgically repaired during his freshman year of college.

However, starting in 1999 he began to suffer a chronic Achilles tendon problem that made running painful and left him limping for two to three days after any game or training. He consulted an orthopedic surgeon, and his recommendations didn’t help much. Brent started a search for other ways to reduce his pain, increase his range of motion, and restore the freedom to live his life.

Therapeutic massage, sports massage, and bodywork all helped him run again. He completed his first 5K race in July of 2010, a decade after playing competitive soccer, and today his body functions at a much higher level than it did even five years ago. Therapeutic massage and bodywork produced the results he was looking for.

Brent’s introduction to acupuncture came when it allowed him to quit smoking over a decade ago. He got to experience firsthand the power and potential of the medicine.

Brent chose to study and practice acupuncture, East Asian Medicine, and bodywork so others would not have to go through the pain that he had.

​He combined therapies to become the Elite Body Mechanic he is today.

Brent’s mission and purpose is to help his patients live active, pain-free lives. Whether a patient’s root cause is a physical ailment or a mood issue – which are often linked – Brent focuses on producing results.

He views the body as inseparable from the whole person, and his goal is the help every single person he works with to reconnect to that innate truth, and to live their highest possible life.

Acupuncture in a Nutshell

Upgrade your baths to B.E.P. baths

For years now, I have recommended Epson salt baths as a fantastic way to help wind down the nervous system, relax the mind, and decrease muscle pain and soreness.

Recently I learned about B.E.P. baths. This stands for Baking soda, Epsom salt, and hydrogen Peroxide. 
Use a ratio is 1 cup baking soda to 4 cup of Epsom salts to 1/4 cup

The best hack for sleep in a decade

I was turned on to mouth taping about three months ago by my brother, and separately by a mentor, both of whom had been taping their mouth shut for years while sleeping.

My brother told me about James Nestor’s book “Breath.”

I am a pretty avid reader, but I still haven’t read the actual book.

However, I have listened
