Erika Barrantes, M.S., L.Ac.

Owner, Pure Life Acupuncture & Wellness Center
23821 Hawthorne Blvd.
Torrance, CA 90505

Ms. Barrantes enrolled in college, in part to fulfill her Costa Rican parents’ dream for their daughter of a university education.  After attending one of Dr. Howard Cohen’s,  a NET practitioner, weekly lectures on mind/body connection,** Ms. Barrantes found her calling.  To her father’s disappointment, she left the university to pursue her licensure as an acupuncturist, with certification in NET.  Ms. Barrantes now runs a successful practice at Pure Life Acupuncture & Wellness Center (and now her father is one of her patients).  Her patient referrals are based 90% on word of mouth, and preteens constitute 25% of her clients.  She shows videos from NET and ONE to all her patients during their second visit.  “It never ceases to amaze me what the body can tell you,” she says.  She is motivated to donate to ONE because of “the need to see data; it’s the world we live in.”
