Meet the Team
Dr. Kristen Bohnet, DC, LAC
Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Chiropractic
As both a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Bohnet brings the knowledge and experience of two practices to help uncover the root of each patient’s health problems. Each body is unique, and diagnoses present differently from patient to patient. She enjoys difficult cases where patients have seen a variety of doctors and still don’t have answers, and are still in pain. She believes acupuncture treatments should be very soothing and relaxing. She has developed her own brand of chiropractic techniques that are completely tailored to each individual patient.
As an All-American Division 1 elite athlete at UCLA in springboard diving, she utilized a combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage to help her own body perform at its peak, and she wants to ensure all of her patients are feeling their best!
Dr. Bohnet received her Bachelor’s degree from UCLA in Physiological Sciences, her chiropractic degree from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (Summa Cum Laude), and her Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine (Acupuncture and Herbs) from South Baylo University.

In 2005, she received her Bachelor of Science in Holistic Medicine and Master of Science in Chinese Medicine from South Baylo University. She also holds a NCCAOM National Board license.

Her specialties include pain management for acute and chronic conditions, women’s health, and facial rejuvenation.
Shannon was first introduced to acupuncture through her mother, who suffered from a chronic condition that was not improving with traditional Western Medicine. Seeing her mother’s response to acupuncture sparked Shannon’s interest, and as a teenager, she started going to acupuncture herself for common ailments such as headaches and other body pains. After experiencing amazing results first hand, she was hooked! She knew that it was her passion to help people live a pain-free, healthy lifestyle through acupuncture and Eastern Medicine.
In her free time, Shannon loves being active and outdoors! She enjoys staying fit by hiking and playing tennis and pickle ball. Pilates and yoga have also been a regular part of her health routine for the past ten years.
