Growing Up I never had to go to hospital

Growing up, I never had to go to the hospital, take antibiotics or use cold medicine. My father always treated me with acupuncture and herbs whenever I had health issues. For that reason, I never needed Western medicine. As a little girl when I got sick, acupuncture was the first thing I got from my father.

My father helped so many people for as long as I can remember. He had acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinics in Seoul, Buenos Aires, and New York. From the time I was fifteen, I was apprenticing to him. I have watched him treat countless people, from six month old babies to people with facial paralysis and stroke. But his specialty was helping people with back pain.

Through watching him treat all these people, I have gained knowledge and experience  that I could not have learned from any classroom. Now my specialty is also facial acupuncture and pain management, just like my father.  Of course, I also have my master's degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and I am qualified to treat a wide variety of health issues.

It 's my life long passion to use acupuncture and Chinese medicine to help you improve the quality of your life.
