Meet Lola Fox-Rabinovich and Mahshid Mireskandari of Luna Body and Mind

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lola Fox-Rabinovich and Mahshid Mireskandari.

Luna Body + Mind first started out as an idea to bring synergy between the best of Western and Eastern medicine to our Santa Monica community. We observed that Eastern Medicine has become either a spa treatment or a conveyer belt of treating symptoms and not the root causes. Both Lola and Mahshid are passionate about Chinese Medicine the way it was traditionally practiced, with intention, attention to detail and individualized treatment plans. We found that there aren’t any treatments as effective as combining acupuncture and ozone therapy for insomnia, anxiety and pain relief. An idea, hard work and a year later here we are in our downtown Santa Monica office, designed and built from the ground up, opened in the fall of 2020.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
As two immigrant women from different backgrounds, we are not strangers to challenges; So signing the commercial lease right before the pandemic hit was a risk to say the least. However, it was a risk we were willing to take to bring our dream to reality.

Remodeling mid pandemic took over ten months instead of two and the opening of the office was during the pandemic in the fall of 2020- it is safe to say that it was not an easy road to get where we are today but we found our previous life challenges a stepping stone for us to push through.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Luna Body and Mind?
We are a wellness clinic known for our unique combination of modalities. Specializing in insomnia, anxiety, and pain relief combining Chinese medicine and ozone sauna therapy. Our office ambiance was intentionally designed to enhance the effectiveness of our treatments.

When our patients notice the effect of the details in our office and give us compliments, it brings us so much joy. From our gemstone far infrared heating pads on each treatment table to the flower essence filling our space, Luna Body + Mind is meant to heal inside and out.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
We spared no cost at making our office the best healing space possible in the middle of the pandemic. We had no idea if investing in the brand new office without knowing the future of how and if covid would end definitely felt risky.
