We believe that each person is unique and requires time and attention specific to their own physiological and emotional make up.

DJamal Kord and Linda Modaro have been living and working in Santa Monica from 1992 until 2020 when they moved their residence to Newbury Park, CA. Continuing to work in Santa Monica, DJamal practices Medical Acupuncture, Cupping Therapy, and Chinese Herbology and Linda teaches Reflective Meditation for individuals and groups, online from their home. They offer their services without glitz for ordinary citizens working and living in Santa Monica, the surrounding areas, and more.

Unfortunately, the insurance industry changed Acupuncture reimbursement from a PPO system to American Specialties Health (ASH). We are now out of network for insurance, but will provide a super-bill in case your insurance covers out of network providers.

We find that progress and outcomes from Acupuncture and Meditation are varied and depend upon many conditions in your life; therefore, investigation and exploration into the causative factors of distress and disease are an important part of our work together.

Currently DJamal treats patients at the office in Santa Monica, and provides acupuncture for clients at BeHive of Healing in Agoura Hills, CA. Before the pandemic, DJamal supervised acupuncture interns at the Venice Family Clinic, and taught CEU courses at Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In 2016 Linda founded a non-profit, Sati Sangha. She currently teaches and supports a daily online meditation practice sharing deep friendship with Pine Street Sangha. She mentors Reflective Meditation teachers and teaches online retreats; since the pandemic only occasional in-person retreats. Her online groups and sessions include meditators from around the world, and support reflective meditation with other mindfulness, insight, and awareness practices.
