Welcome to Insight Wellness Clinic, where we believe in a holistic approach to healing and well-being. Founded in 2004 by Derek Plonka, Insight Wellness Clinic has been dedicated to providing
exceptional care and innovative treatments to our patients. With a humble beginning in a small office in Santa Monica, we have grown to become a leading center for integrative therapy and Eastern
Derek Plonka's began with a passion for physical therapy and a desire to make a difference in people's lives. As he expanded his knowledge and experience, he recognized that there was something
missing in the traditional approach to patient care. Determined to find a solution, he took on a new path of learning, by immersing himself in the study of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.
Through his studies, Derek Plonka discovered that the principles and practices of traditional medicine complemented and enriched the field of physical therapy. It became clear to him that integrating
acupuncture, herbal medicine, and traditional eastern asian philosophy into treatments, can offer a more comprehensive and effective healing experience for patients.
With this realization, Insight Wellness Clinic was born. Our unique approach combines the best of both worlds, blending the latest advancements in physical therapy with the wisdom and insights of
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. By addressing not only the physical symptoms but also the underlying imbalances within the body, aiming to promote true holistic healing and lasting wellness.
At Insight Wellness Clinic, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment where our patients feel comfortable and supported. Dedicated to fostering a strong sense of trust and open
communication, ensuring that you feel heard, understood, and cared for throughout your entire experience with us.
Your well-being is our priority.
