• Seung (Michael) Kim, R.Ac


    Michael developed a severe pain in his neck, lower back, and hip joint in his early 20’s, then later diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) after suffering for 7 years. He was hopeless until he started the holistic approach. Michael believes that acupuncture and correct lifestyle changes are not only vital to autoimmune disease like AS, but to most of the conditions that modern people go through daily.

    Michael’s practice is specialized in pain relief and various disorders that minimize patient’s mobility. Also, he has been quite successful in treating digestive disorders and psycho-emotional issues.

    Michael has graduated from PCU College of Holistic Medicine (currently Vancouver Career College) and he is a Registered Acupuncturist. He has also finished TCM Practitioner (Herbalist) program and awaiting to be Registered as a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner.

    Michael is currently studying and taking courses on miniscarpel acupuncture (acupotomy). Michael is also exceptionally passionate about weightlifting, and he likes to go camping and hiking whenever he has the chance to.
