Headaches have Decreased Significantly

"Dr. Kim is a passionate practitioner of acupuncture with a special kindness and warmth. I had been struggling with headaches for years, but with her treatments they’ve decreased significantly.

She truly wants to help her patients get better. Highly recommended!"

Decreased Stress Levels

"My boyfriend and I have been seeing Dr. Kim now for almost a year! We each have our own symptoms we are working on. He has noticed a significant change with his restless arm syndrome, therefore benefitting his sleep patterns. Acupuncture is the only thing that has helped this. I have noticed a decrease in stress levels after my treatments! She is a wonderful practitioner and has great health/diet recommendations to adjunct acupuncture!"

Pain-free

"Went into to see Dr. Kim with some nerve issues from an old back injury that now is affecting my foot. Had several weeks of pain with little sleep. After a few sessions, I am feeling so much better, sleeping, and pain-free. Dr. Kim has a real passion for her profession."

Migraines Gone

"I started my acupuncture treatment a few weeks ago, just to try get rid of my migraines due the Calgary Chinooks and sometimes stressful live. And within just couple visits with Dr. Kim I was noticing lots of improvements on how often and how intense the migraines were happening. This is the December 2018 we have had a few Chinooks and thanks Dr. Kim I did not have a single migraine yet. Highly recommend Dr. Kim . Thanks, Roger"

I finally stopped vomiting

"I was throwing up several times a day for about 2 years and couldn’t make heads or tails of it. Went through all sorts of medical testing and then I finally figured out it was probably anxiety linked to my depression. Well, I certainly wasn’t going to go back on meds (I hate them) and I tried everything: seeing a therapist regularly, an exercise regime, yoga etc. It wasn’t until I started seeing Dr. Kim for acupuncture that I finally stopped vomiting. I was scared at first, I mean needles are pretty scary, but Dr. Kim is so passionate about her work, and spends an enormous amount of time researching and crafting individual treatments. So it has now been a couple years since I have vomited, and I still feel good enough to not take depression meds. Overall, acupuncture with Dr. Kim has been a great addition to my overall health and wellness and I highly recommend her services. Highly. I have seen other acupuncturists that do not yield the same result."

Winter and your Kidneys

Winter and your Kidneys

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, health is achieved by living in balance with nature and the seasons. Winter, the season of the Water Element, is the season for slowing down, reflecting, and conserving our resources. We all feel this tendency, but we don’t always listen to our bodies.  In Western culture, being active is rewarded and expected. We feel

Enjoying Naps in the Winter Season

Most mammals are polyphasic sleepers, meaning that they sleep for short periods throughout the day. For humans, days are divided into two distinct periods, one for sleep and one for wakefulness, which is a monophasic sleep pattern. However, this may be a product of living in an industrialized world and not the
