While preparing to be an MD/DO at the University of Maryland College Park, Yaron Cohen was exposed to the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Having always been of holistic philosophies, he changed his pursuit from Western medicine towards becoming a physician of TCM. After graduating UMDCP with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy (with Citations in Pre-Med and Jewish Studies), Yaron moved to Los Angeles, California to study at Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Studying under the well-known Ni brothers and the rest of Yo San’s premier educators only helped to fuel Yaron’s passion for TCM. Not only was there an excellent TCM and Western medicine curriculum, but an integrated and vital Qi Cultivation curriculum as well. Yaron believes that it is difficult to separate the spiritual side from the rest of the medicine as it is holistic in nature. Yaron received his Masters of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine with honors from Yo San University.

“I want to promote the wellness of my patients with compassionate care through building a partnership of health, lifestyle guidance, and Traditional Chinese Medicine”. Yaron Cohen L.Ac.

We offer tips and knowledge about how to keep yourself healthy and fit…

  • For many years I have suffered from chronic migrains and have tried just about everything to get relief. I recently started treatments at Wise Wellness and have already seen an improvement in my pain. Melissa is very thorough and works to understand the underlying problems that are causing pain. She also takes it a step further to educate me about my health that will result in a better quality of life.

  • I’ve gone 3 times for help with TMJ relief, and the associated neck and shoulder pain that I’ve dealt with for over 20 years. I’ve not necessarily seen tons of improvement. I’ve tried everything – yoga, stretching, strengthening, tennis ball, massage, etc. She stuck 3 pins in it, and I can honestly say that I have not had this much relief EVER. Super impressed and excited to continue.

  • Simply amazing. I was home visiting family and really needed some help with pain in my shoulders before I flew back to LA and would have no time. It has been over a week and my shoulders feel great. I wish Wise was in California I would go often! I want to say thanks again for such wonderful treatment.
    Justin K. – Canoga Park, CA

  • I injured my shoulder years ago and have tried physical therapy on and off for a few years without any improvement.I was almost ready to give up on treatment because I was hoping for an overnight cure. It might have taken a while, but I’m certain that accupuncture with Yaron was the catalyst that got my body to heal itself. Thank you Yaron!

  • I went to Wise Wellness for treatment of chronic sinusitis, shoulder and ankle pain. The results were amazing! In addition to relieving pain in my shoulder and ankle, I haven’t had a sinus infection since starting treatment. Yaron is extremely professional and caring, and I highly recommend his services, especially if you are looking for an alternative to antibiotics or pain relievers.

  • I highly recommend Yaron Cohen, LAc. I went for my first treatment a few days ago and he is not only a very skilled acupuncturist but very knowledgeable on both Eastern and Western medicine and holistic health. He is caring, warm, and takes time to make sure the patient is comfortable. I personally am a bit anxious about receiving acupuncture but the experience at Wise Wellness was completely relaxing.

    Amanda Thompson

  • Very relaxing and educational experience. Dr Cohen’s extensive knowledge of ancient Chinese medicine has helped me take control of my high blood pressure. I highly recommend wise wellness for anyone looking to extend their quality of life.
