Though some may think that acupuncture is something mystical, exotic, or out of reach, in fact, its benefits are comfortably attainable for all.
You don’t have to be a monk or a yogi to enjoy its benefits. Acupuncture is for everyone. It works because it’s based in science, and thousands of years of observation.
We call our clinic “Blue Jean Acupuncture” because acupuncture should be as comfortable, as familiar, and as useful to you as your favorite pair of blue jeans.
For your convenience we accept PPO insurances, will work on liens for motor vehicle accidents, and are open until 8pm on weeknights.
Serving Pasadena, South Pasadena, Arcadia, Los Angeles, Eagle Rock, Glendale, La Crescenta, La Canada, Altadena, and San Marino
Roxy Han had been working in the film and television industry for 6 years before one fateful day when she got an injury that would change her life in the very best way. She was at a Jiu Jitsu convention, zigged when she should have zagged and ended up with a separated AC joint. The acupuncture treatments she received afterward were so effective in reducing pain and speeding healing that she knew she had to discover this medicine’s secrets for herself.
She enrolled at Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine at her soonest chance, and graduated with highest honors in 2006. She went on to treat in different acupuncture clinics all over Southern California, incorporating the very best techniques she observed into her own.
Roxy Han founded Elements Total Health in South Pasadena in 2008, an integrative health clinic, where she performed over 30,000 patient visits. Blue Jean Acupuncture in Pasadena is her newest clinic, where she will be treating people with the same high quality level of care she has been providing for over 11 years. Roxy Han is a caring and effective physician, capable of treating many different types of health concerns, and especially pain related and fertility issues.
Vignette has always felt a strong pull to help people, yet it wasn't until 2009, while living far from home in New Orleans that she found Chinese medicine. Vignette had been working as a counselor for years, but sensed there was something missing in her work and her own personal health. By happenstance, she met an EMT who studied only one protocol of ear acupuncture and was offering free weekly treatments to the community. A lifelong needle-phobe, Vignette was nervous, but also very intrigued. The first session left a deep impression, just a few needles in the ears were having a tremendous impact on her physical and emotional health. She knew she had found something.
Vignette left New Orleans and returned home to Los Angeles where she promptly enrolled in acupuncture school. Upon graduating with honors from Emperor's College of Traditional Medicine in 2014, Vignette was recruited to work in an MD's office in Monterey, Ca. Working alongside physicians and treating many patients rapidly allowed Vignette to develop a practiced and nuanced approach to treatment.
She now specializes in pain and women's health with an emphasis on the root emotional patterning that contributes to disease. Vignette is honored to bring her experience to the high quality of care at Blue Jean Acupuncture.
