What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a comprehensive natural health care system that has been used in asian countries for thousands of years to preserve health and diagnose, treat and prevent illness.
Acupuncture treats health conditions by stimulating “acupoints” found at specific locations on the surface of the body through insertion of very thin needles through the skin.
Dr. On Jung Park explains, “If medication is prescribed according to symptoms in Western Medicine, then Korean Medicine treats disease according to imbalance of the body due to any excess or deficiency of something.” She emphasized on “the importance of health maintenance rather than search of medicine after signs of pain.”
Dr. Park received her Doctorate Degree within ten years and majored in Acupuncture Kinematics in China’s most prestigious school, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine; she handles a wide range of disease from Bell’s Palsy, dermatology, to gynecology. She has seven years of clinical experience in China, and she studied the American Health System in Boston and New York.
After acquiring the California License in 2011, she joined Jaseng Center and got appointed as Clinical Director from 2011 to 2017.
Currently, she established Haeseong Integrative Medicine Center in Los Angeles and has been seeing patients since August 2017.
