About me

Why I became an Acupuncturist

As a teenager, I had my first experience with acupuncture. With only one treatment, it surprisingly shortened the recovery time by half for a sprained ankle. Sports injuries were a frequent occurrence from daily skateboarding and playing basketball. Additionally, my personality and upbringing allowed me to be constantly interested in the well-being of others. I'm an INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving) according to Myers-Briggs personality type indicator. It means my default state is empathy, creativity, and utopian dreaming. Growing up in a parishioner family, I was instilled with a high sense of ethics and morality. I was active in serving others. Lastly, my childhood in the mountains and waters of South Korea was a deep appreciation of the depth and wisdom of nature. Over time, I realized the molecular medicine dealt with the basics, whereas working with nature was at a higher level.

The decision to be an acupuncturist was made immediately after an undergraduate university. I was looking for a lifelong enthusiasm with psychology and healthcare. A senior acupuncturist had told me the benefits of being an acupuncturist. That I can treat stubborn and chronic diseases was attractive. It turned out acupuncture fills the dire need in health care. Since that time, I felt the calling and had never turned back. It led me into a path of new discoveries for my patients and the entire world.
