Hi I’m Derby, a licensed California board certified Acupuncturist based in Los Angeles, California.
My mission is to empower my clients and help them work through pain to recovery and to discover the gateway into a more optimized, holistic and healthy lifestyle.
Currently I offer acupuncture for stress and pain management, sports related and musculoskeletal injury and cosmetic (facial rejuvenation) services in addition to Women’s Functional Medicine to support fertility, pregnancy, hormonal changes and restore balance in the body. I also offer Herbal + Nutritional Consultations and Cupping.
I am a certified ABORM Fellow (The Acupuncture and TCM Board of Reproductive Medicine), and I have advanced training in Western and Eastern reproductive medicine, with deep knowledge of reproductive anatomy, physiology, pathology, and how Traditional Chinese Medicine can complement and enhance ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) techniques. I have helped many patients on their fertility and pregnancy journey, as well as with pre and post-natal care to prepare patients as they embark on an exciting new chapter of life.
I have served the community as a Staff Acupuncturist at Whole Foods Medical & Wellness Center in Glendale, CA in addition to having my own practice as the Principal Chinese Medicine Doctor at Derby Ho Acupuncture in Culver City, CA since 2015.
I look forward to guiding you on a healing journey and restoring balance for your mind, spirit and body.
In gratitude and in great health,
With a variety of options to choose from, book your next treatment today.
Hear what a few patients have to say about their experience and treatment with Derby.
A.K., Los Angeles
Derby is great at her craft! She listens to all my needs and makes a plan to address my areas of pain. With her knowledge and experience, I feel like I'm in great hands and I trust her with helping me heal my body. I definitely recommend her. Lastly, she has a great personality and bedside manner.
Cassandra T., Los Angeles
Derby is amazing! Actually, I started seeing her during the early part of June 2020 due to a driver falling asleep at the wheel, resulting in my being rear-ended. My body was in need of healing. She goes far and above the call of duty in servicing her clientele. The recommendations she gives are spot on. The excellent attention to detail to my needs at the time - each session is what makes me a repeat patron.
Kris H., Los Angeles
Derby has an incredible understanding of how our bodies work and what it takes to heal them. As a competitive weightlifter I make a habit of putting tremendous stress on my body and being in a constant state of recovery. Treatments with Derby have become a essential and crucial part of my training.

Facial Rejuvenation with Derby is a godsend. She made my jawline look so contoured while increasing the circulation in my skin with her gua sha technique. I left feeling rejuvenated with a rosy glow. The infrared light treatment was such a unique sensation to experience and the results were fantastic. Everyone keeps saying how great my skin looks. Thank you Derby!
