Monika Kobylecka is a licensed acupuncturist practicing Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS)
acupuncture at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA).

Monika completed her Master of Science degree at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine
where she was first introduced to Japanese acupuncture. What shaped her current practice
was meeting renowned Japanese practitioner Kiiko Matsumoto in 2004 and learning this
master’s unique style. It was during one of the first classes Monika attended with Ms.
Matusmoto that she discovered how acupuncture can be practical, effective and interactive -
something that a patient doesn't have to believe is working; they can feel it working right
during the treatment.

For the last 12 years, Monika has continued to work closely with Ms. Matsumoto – observing
her in her clinic in Boston, assisting her in her seminars and collaborating on
Ms. Matsumoto’s latest book. Monika also teaches introductory, hands-on classes in KMS
acupuncture in the United States and around the world.

Back home in Los Angeles, Monika’s private practice is based at CHLA where she holds privileges. She sees pediatric
patients in an integrative setting of the Pediatric Pain Clinic; supervises students for the CHLA-YSU Pediatric
Acupuncture Program; is involved in ongoing research on the effects of acupuncture; and runs the CHLA Employee

Her passion for acupuncture, facilitated by Kiiko Matsumoto Style, translates into an ongoing effort to bridge the gap
between Eastern and Western medicine in a practical and patient-focused manner.
