Although the risk of disease and physical ailments clearly increases as we age, poor health is not an inevitable consequence. Many of the illnesses and health issues are avoidable through preventive measures. These include practicing a healthy lifestyle (regular physical activity, healthy eating, adequate sleep, stress management) and the use of early detection practices. Our focus at the Center for Acupuncture and Anti-Aging Medicine in Santa Monica is to improve the health, quality of life, longevity, and vitality of our patients and help prevent illness.
The 10-week integrated anti-aging and health improvement program was developed to accelerate the achievement of our patient’s health goals, to help them feel better and more vibrant, and to improve their overall quality of life. It is a lifestyle change program that will improve your body, mind, and spirit in a sustainable way.
The program called “10 +” is a customized program that incorporates acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and movement therapy with active lifestyle coaching over a 10-week period.
This personalized 10-week program includes:
An initial 1 ½ hour evaluation where we jointly set goals for the ten weeks
Nine weekly acupuncture sessions, which also include a check-in discussion of progress against goals
Two private movement (yoga, qigong) sessions
Weekly Chinese herbs customized to help address the patient’s health issues and longevity and support their achievement of the agreed-upon health goals
Mid-program (week 5) face-to-face review and coaching session
Ongoing direct access to Dr. Chianni Lin via email and text over the full program
The benefits of the program are multi-fold. In a recent post-program interview with one of our patients, she clearly outlined what she liked about the program and the benefits she achieved:
“What did you like most about the program?”
1. “I was able to better understand my health priorities and set clear goals”

3. “Coming to the Center each week was something I looked forward to very much. It was my getaway. And I loved the space—so relaxing and conducive to healing”
4. “We made significant progress towards my health goals: reduced chronic pain, less stress, and weight reduction.”
