About Dongha

Dongha Kim, L.Ac

National Diplomat of Acupuncture (NCCAOM) 2005

Dongha recieved his Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine from South Baylo University in 2005. He has been a student of  Traditonal Korean Medicine and an avid researcher treating thousands of patients in his 12 years of practice.
Most illness and disturbances are rooted in interruptions to the network of meridians in all of our bodies.  These interruptions compromise our health and create stagnation,imbalances, and sickness.  Dongha uses Traditional Korean Medicine (Sa-Am Acupuncture Method) to treat the health problems of the patient as a result of these stagnations and interruptions.
If you are suffering from chronic pain or severe acute pain, see Dongha Kim.  He is kind, provides effective treatments and most importantly he cares deeply about your health and wellness.
