On this week’s episode of THE FULLEST Podcast, we sit down with Licensed Acupuncturist, Board Certified Herbalist, Lead Health Practitioner, and Co-Owner of Den Mother, Elisa Angelone. Den Mother is a healing house and social space offering myriad services designed to help down-regulate the nervous system to help up-regulate health and healing. They focus on creating a welcoming wellness space that counterbalances the stress of modern-day lives — tucked away on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach, this sanctuary is the ideal place to unwind from the city chaos.
Elisa is an East Asian Medicine Practitioner specializing in Japanese acupuncture and neuromuscular testing. Understanding the connection between the natural world, our physicality, and our inner world is a huge part of Elisa’s professional vocation — and as we learn in this episode, this has also played a significant role in the design and creation of Den Mother’s wellness space.
Listen in as we chat about:
- Getting to the root cause of illness
- Muscle testing
- The power of breath
- Emotional trauma
- Japanese Acupuncture vs. Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
- Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional Cedar Sauna
For those in the Los Angeles area, we strongly recommend popping into Den Mother. Even if you don’t have time for a treatment, you can lounge in their zen garden and indulge in a tonic or plant-based bite!
