• Clark Kim PhD, RAc, MSc


    Clark is one of the very few acupuncturists specializing in Korean Elemental Therapy and Korean Modern Acupuncture in North America. He applies small Acupuncture needles primarily to the hands to treat clients as the hands represent the whole body. One of the best advantages is that clients do not need to undress for treatment as Korean acupuncture uses forearm and hands only to treat the entire body

    Clark studied acupuncture and graduated from PCU College.

    He studied Korean acupuncture in Korea and also from Dr. Kim who is a retired acupuncturist doctor. After becoming a Registered Acupuncturist, he continued to study to become an expert of natural medicine and home remedies. He earned a PhD in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and a Doctor of Naprapathy degree, researching exercise and mobility programs for spinal cord injury patients. Clark deepened his botanical medicine knowledge through a Doctor of Botanical Medicine degree as well.

    He brings expertise in physical medicine exercises, botanical medicine, manual therapies, and manual osteopathic techniques to his practice besides his acupuncture practice.

    With this diverse training, Clark takes an integrative approach, combining natural home remedies and manual techniques. He aims to optimize mobility, musculoskeletal health, and internal wellness to help patients regain health and improve their quality of life.
