Functional Medicine

Kai Wellness - Functional Medicine in Los Angeles

A term coined in 1993 to describe the “medicine of the future”, functional medicine refers to a higher standard of care. It utilizes diagnostic precision using the latest laboratory testing and specific assessment of genetic markers. Personalized nutraceutical, dietary and lifestyle plans target prevention on an epigenetic level.

When you understand how your body works at this level, you can optimize performance and detoxification pathways. The work is targeted toward optimal genetic expression, and greatly enhancing the quality of life.

At Kai Wellness, we are proud to partner with cutting edge technologies at top laboratories to add tremendous value in making functional assessments and treatment in Los Angeles. We also partner with top of the line, innovative nutraceutical companies to help you achieve your best possible health.

Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture

Specialty Acupuncture Styles:

Nutritional Counseling
Functional Medicine in Los Angeles

Proper nutrition is essential, and without a doubt – food is medicine. Most physical and emotional conditions can be greatly relieved with proper nourishment and supplementation.

More than what we eat, it’s how we eat – and whether or not our bodies are effectively absorbing nutrients from our foods – that makes the greatest difference.

Instead of promoting any nutritional protocols or fad diets, we customize time-tested and thoroughly researched nutritional strategies for each individual based on their unique needs.

Yoga Therapy
Los Angeles At Home yoga therapist

Yoga Therapy combines body movement, awareness, and toning with breathwork, meditation, and Ayurveda (a 5000+ year-old system of traditional Indian internal medicine) to balance the Chakra energy system. Yoga Therapy helps you reclaim physical, emotional and spiritual health and wholeness.

As a physical therapy, Yoga Therapy addresses not only the target area – it treats the entire body as a whole.

Currently, a vast amount of research is becoming available as to the positive effects of Yoga Therapy on physical ailments, mental health, and spiritual wellbeing.

Reiki Energy Healing
Los Angeles Alternative Healthcare

Research shows the positive effects of subtle energy healing techniques on the immune system, on mental health, and on recovery from surgery and illness.

Gentle placement of hands at various energy centers of the body promote deep relax. Deep intuition is accessed as powerful insights come through. Reiki works great as a stand alone therapy. It is also particularly well as an adjunct therapy to any treatment.

Cosmetic - Microneedling
Microneedling in Los Angeles

Microneedling is the insertion of very fine needles into the skin for purpose of rejuvenation. This 30-minute, once per month treatment is used to effectively treat and improve conditions such as:

fine lines and wrinkles,

acne and scarring, l

oose skin,

skin texture,

pore size,

brown spots,

stretch marks,

pigment issues (like melasma and vitiligo),

and on the scalp to promote hair growth.

Microneedling creates micro channels in the skin, which stimulates collagen production and increases serum absorption by 3000%! Results are seen and felt after the fist treatment. Research shows maximum results to arrive in 4-6 treatments and last and average of 5 years.



Each of us is on a unique and fascinating soul journey. Marked by constant change, our lives present us with gateways and cycles that can feel challenging. Navigating initiations, integrating life experience and changing patterns requires skill to do successfully. 

Transformational Spiritual Counseling is a one-on-one engagement that guides you through the process of deep healing and spiritual growth.

The result is completion of unresolved trauma, release of self-limiting beliefs, discovery of your gifts and resources and their implementation in various aspects of your life. Read more HERE

Dr. Karina Klimtchuk

Owner of Kai Wellness, L.Ac., DACM, Dipl. OM, CIAYT, E-RYT500

I aim to bring maximum value. I am here to help and to support you in your journey. My goal is to encourage your empowerment and nourish your innate wisdom and awareness.

What our clients are saying…

... thank you from my heart

“When I started working with Karina I was still getting over a severe, life-threatening stomach issue and surgery, and nerve damage from the surgery to the point of excruciating pain and extreme difficulty using my hands. After an exhausting time with many doctors, neurologists, surgeons, and pain management specialists I was told there there wasn’t anything further they could do for me other than a lifetime of pain medications to help manage the pain. I became depressed, hopeless and confused.

After talking with Karina, I decided to try Chinese Medicine and began meeting with Karina twice per week to receive acupuncture treatments, take herbs, and implement dietary changes. After a short period, I began to notice litte improvements which continued to increase as treatments continued.The improvements continue and I see Karina 2-3 times per week. My Western doctors had no more answers and I am very grateful for meeting Karina and the help and road she has led me on. I can’t say enough about the help she has given me. I am very grateful to have been referred to her and all I can say to her is thank you from my heart!“

Karina is excellent at assisting the body to repair itself...

“I was referred to Karina by my doctor to regain balance, stability and core strength after a stroke 3 years ago. Karina uses exercises and targeted massage to counteract the effects of muscular stiffness and pain. She can just look at your posture and immediately know which areas need work.

Following some unintended side-effects from ankle surgery, she had added acupuncture therapy to help me repair my bladder function and also restore mood and sleep habits. As a result of her efforts, I have returned to a more normal and satisfying life. Karina is excellent at assisting the body to repair itself using very gentle and natural methods.“

Herb E.

Manhattan Beach, CA

I highly recommend Karina because of the positive results I have personally experienced....

“For years I was having a terrible problem with lower-back spasms. As a result of the persistent tightness and pain, my posture, shoulders and upper back were negatively impacted. These conditions were frustrating me and forcing me to skip my daily walks and eliminate other forms of activity, like playing with our grandchildren.

After 6-8 weeks of Karina’s help, I noticed dramatic relief in my lower back tightness and was able to resume most activities that I had given up or reduced dramatically. I am extremely excited about the improvements to my back and positive impact that it has had on my general lifestyle and my day-to-day activities. I highly recommend Karina because of the positive results I have personally experienced, her caring manner and consistent efforts when I have a challenge.“
