Arby Robles, MTOM, L.Ac.


    Practitioner: Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Candidate











Arby Robles is a licensed acupuncturist and is board certified by the California Acupuncture Board. She earned her Master of Science in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California. She also has a Masters in Teaching, Special Education Credentials specializing in Moderate to Severe Disabilities from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. Arby is also a licensed 300 Hr. Yoga Teacher from 2 Schools of Yoga, the Chad Hamrin School of Yoga in Santa Monica, Ca and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, Ca.

Her approach to care can best be described as a merging of eastern and western medicine. Applying a comprehensive and whole-listic but integrative perspective to meet patient needs is critical to her art of healing. 

For Arby, healing involves much more than working on physical, emotional and mental imbalances. Healing involves helping her patients by giving them tools they can use for a better life. 

Arby’s specialty and heart's work is providing Acupuncture for Pain Management, Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, helping people to a state of equilibrium. Each session with her is a chance for her patients to reconnect with the self: for your body and mind to re-integrate so that they can restore a balanced state of health.

Arby’s collaborative approach to care emphasizes providing patients with the tools, resources, and rituals for self-care that enable patients to believe in their abilities to fully heal themselves by exploring beyond a diagnosis to identify the fundamental causes of their difficulties.
