I thought I’d just be going in for a relaxing hour, and ideally some immediate relief from the physical pain, but I left with so much more – and continue to reap the benefits of her work! She was also able to help me understand what aspects of my life might have been contributing to the discomfort.
Gianna De La Torre | Acu•Intuit
For the last 12 years Gianna has been a witness to countless healing experiences in the lives of people she works with. Her understanding of the body began 15 years ago on the yoga mat. In 2003 she traveled to India to study Ashtanga yoga and met an Ayurvedic doctor who inspired her to explore alternative medicine. The tools she learned along the way helped her cope with a traumatic event in her own life.
Gianna chose to obtain a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Herbology because it resonates with her energetic understanding of the body. Her Masters Degree is not her most prized credential. She awards more merit to her willingness to take huge risks on behalf of her life’s purpose.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is an integral part of Gianna’s practice, but her offering wasn’t fully expressed until she combined it with Intuitive Consultation. She believes that our behaviors and patterns are reflected in the body. The subtle vibrations of limiting thoughts/fear have the potential to manifest as pain and disease. By balancing the body and upshifting negative patterns, she believes the patient has a greater ability to heal herself.
Gianna’s practice also integrates the use of therapeutic grade essential oils & infrared heat therapy.

What People Say About Gianna & Acu•Intuit
Almost immediately after seeing Gianna the malady that has plagued me since my early 20s (I’m now 51) started to lift. She has done more for me than any therapist has been able to do and I’m eternally grateful. Saying what she does is transformative is a gross understatement, she truly changes lives.
Gianna changed my life! She helped me cope with pain from an old running injury and opened me up to different levels of treatment. She’s extremely intuitive – she has a great sense of the body and is a true healer.
Annie LaksParamount Creative Executive
Gianna is a highly skilled acupuncturist. I have been lucky enough to see some of the most brilliant acupuncturists around the world and I have studied Chinese Medicine myself. I was so impressed with Gianna’s diagnostic expertise and her needlework.
Johann HelfLotus Blooming Herbs Founder
Gianna is passionate and knowledgeable about every health-related topic we’ve ever discussed. I walk out of every session feeling healthy, inspired and unburdened of all stress. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experiences with Acu•Intuit. It has truly changed my life.
Kathryn TamblynNutritionist, Entrepreneur
My experience with Gianna was so powerful that it will take days to process it all. After years of seeing an amazing acupuncturist who moved his practice to San Fransisco, it was time to explore L.A. again for a new one. And boy am I glad I did! I can honestly say, my life just got better!
