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 14 years, Monika has continued to work closely with Ms. Matsumoto and also
teaches introductory, hands-on classes in KMS acupuncture in the United States and
around the world.
