In a healthy person, Chi, also known as the life force, flows smoothly through the body’s energy channels in a state of dynamic equilibrium. Acupuncture achieves its curative effect by clearing obstructions and balancing the energy flow. Once the smooth flow of Chi is restored, an individual becomes healthy. 

This Eastern Philosophy is second nature to Dr. Kara MoraMarco and intrinsic to her perspective on health and healing. Kara is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM), and a board-certified California Licensed Acupuncturist whose passion for healthful living began at an early age. Kara’s mother and father, both Doctors of Oriental Medicine were and are her shining examples of commitment to helping others restore and maintain health.

At the age of six, her father, Dr. Jacques MoraMarco (Academic Dean of Emperor's College of Traditional Oriental Medicine)  began training Kara in Chinese Martial Arts, including Tai Chi and Qi Gong.  At an early age, Kara developed a passion for figure skating. She ultimately completed the Gold Medal Senior Level test of the USFSA. In addition, Kara cross-trained in ballet, yoga, and Pilates. While training at the Ice Castle International Training Center in Lake Arrowhead, California, Kara experienced, first hand, the benefits of acupuncture and herbal medicine for both prevention and healing of injuries in the arena of elite athletic training.

Following the completion of Kara’s Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology (Exercise Science) magna cum laude at California State University Northridge, she then earned her Masters and Doctorate  Degrees in Traditional Oriental Medicine summa cum laude at Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, California.

Dr Kara ‘s clinical internships included rotations at UCLA’s Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center as well as the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank as well as the Being Alive Community Clinic in West Hollywood. Dr. MoraMarco’s doctoral capstone project was a review of Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea.

Dr. Kara is also an entrepreneur.She is the developer of the LOVE CUP, (heart shaped cups used for fire cupping therapy) www.lovecupping.com, https://www.instagram.com/lovecupping/ which she created to bring more visibility to ancient cupping therapy.  These cups have been sold in 15 countries throughout Europe and Asia.  A portion of the sales goes to support stateless Thai youths in their endeavors to better their lives through higher education.

Dr. Kara’s passion to share the full range of benefits of acupuncture and herbal medicine is appreciated by her patients, men and women of all ages and from all walks of life.

Kara is amazing! The first time I called her she could sense what an emergency it was that I was having and got me in right away, listened very carefully to what’s going on, and quickly formulated a plan and did her acupuncture treatment accordingly and I felt like a million bucks after leaving! I’m now a regular! : thanks for all the help Kara!

Kara is a Divine savior. I started seeing her regularly to help me balance hormones and fix a few other issues that had become debilitating, and the results are very real and very immediate. I’m looking forward to having her healing and knowledge in my life for the long haul. She’s also got a wonderful disposition - patient, empathetic, soothing.. you will leave her office feeling relaxed and sunnier about the day ahead of you, no doubt. She’s also very knowledgeable and I get her advice on loads of health related topics.
