About Kari Escavacini

Kari is very passionate and committed to helping others. She communicates with her clients, addressing their needs and goals of treatment. She is intuitive, strong, knowledgeable and detail oriented. Kari decided to study massage 18 years ago when she saw firsthand how much it heals people as it was the only type of treatment that worked for her pain after 2 car accidents. After her own experience, Kari realized how much she could help people by providing this type of healing to the community.

After completing 1,000 hours of Massage school, she began her career at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, California. Now, with over 17 years of experience, her purpose is to provide healing, deep relaxation and overall well-being. Kari has also provided massage to young children, because as a mother herself, she knows how massage can calm and support a growing, active body and mind.

Aside from massage, her background consists of the following: Ballet, Registered Dental Assistant, Certified Birth Doula, Certified Childbirth Educator, AA degree, and is now certified in Fertility Massage. Kari is a member of ABMP and CAMTC certified with the state of California. On a personal note: Kari enjoys spending her time with her daughter, husband, as well as other friends and family members. Summer is her favorite season, when she enjoys many beach walks, trips to the pool enjoying the warm sun and fresh air. She also is an avid reader, enjoys making flower arrangements, cooking healthy recipes and doing anything in which she can creatively express herself. Kari loves to find the humor in life and you will most always find her smiling.

She has the gift of a true healer, paying attention to what each individual patient needs and having the knowledge and skill to provide it."- Daniel B.
  • "I started going to Megan for acupuncture a few months ago because I've had chronic knee pain going back several years. I'm not an expert on the ins and outs of acupuncture but the simple result is that the pain's largely subsided since I started treatment...I think the point of going to a specialist like Megan is, you want to feel like you're constantly moving in a good direction. I feel that way, and trust her, and feel very comfortable referring her to others."- Heath B.
  • "Megan Joyce is a great acupunturist! Not only is she professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to her field, she is very caring and authentic... Megan takes her time, asks thought-provoking questions and offers pertinent and appropriate advice. I had reservations of this therapy and was somewhat skeptical. But I'm feeling better and better. I highly recommend her."- Diane W.M
  • "I highly recommend Megan Joyce Acupuncture. I am new to acupuncture and started treatments for a handful of general health issues. Megan is extremely professional, detailed and passionate about the practice. She does not rush through your consultation. She listens and remembers too! I have been amazed by the improvements and effectiveness of acupuncture and herbs. I look forward to my sessions and I always leave feeling relaxed and with a great sense of well being!"- Diane C.
  • "Megan is simply the best and you should go out of your way to see her. She digs very deep into what your issues are before treating you because she genuinely cares about what you are trying to accomplish with your sessions. I have never felt rushed in any of our sessions because she always takes her time in explaining what she's doing.She is extremely professional and makes sure you are comfortable before whipping out the needles and getting the poke party started. I always look forward to my next visit!"- Henry P.
  • "I began seeing Megan two weeks into my first pregnancy until the birth of my daughter (and beyond). I've been treated by a number of acupuncturists over the last fourteen years and can honestly say that Megan has been one of the best. She is professional and thorough ... her warmth and genuine care for my health and well-being were unsurpassed. Megan helped ease any muscle pains and aches I had ... and I'm convinced that it was largely due to her treatments that my pregnancy and birth were as easy as they were. I cannot recommend her services enough to anyone who is interested in finding practitioner who is truly dedicated to this healing art..."- Jackie P.
