Every time something awful happens in the world, it makes its way into my clinic. This week Roe v Wade was overturned and it’s been the topic of every patient’s mind and heart. I often hear the words ‘you’re not my therapist but….’ while my patients explain to me their emotional or spiritual troubles. This happens so often that it’s now one of the main things I treat in my clinic - emotional pain, upset and trauma, and it’s also why I’ve become a transformational Jungian Life Coach, so that I can truly help you in the entire process of body, mind and spirit. You might think heading to an acupuncturist to deal with your break up doesn’t make a lot of sense, but the truth is, emotional pain goes far beyond just the mind, it affects our body and our spirit, and Chinese medicine is especially equipped to bridge between these three aspects of our lives: body - mind - spirit. Feelings are called feelings for a reason - they are literally felt in the body, actual sensations that we feel caused by neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes - it can be tingling, numbness, tension, heat, the list goes on, but every time we have an emotional reaction, before it came a physical reaction. The world we currently live in is rife with reasons to be upset - wars that are never ending, political upheaval, an economic system on the brink of collapse, domestic terrorism, pain and strife is parmount every time we turn on the television or open up TikTok, and that doesn’t even include our personal life’s ups and downs.
It’s incredibly important that during times of stress, change or upset we find support, you may get that from friends and family, a therapist, the gym, and yes, an acupuncturist. Body work can be profound to help the mental and emotional healing process. We have to help the body process and move the energy (and neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes) that is associated with emotional responses so that we can feel clear and like ourselves again, so that we can move forward and make choices out of response instead of reaction. If you’re still wondering ‘how on earth can acupuncture really help me with my emotions?’ let’s dive right in…
If you've had curiosity about past lives, or just want to learn more about yourself and why you do the things you do, struggle with specific issues or the possible deeper causes of illness a Beyond Quantum Healing session might be right for you. Beyond Quantum Healing is a modality of past life regression hypnotherapy which builds upon the work of the late Dolores Cannon founder of the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique. This work is designed to help you witness and heal deeper layers of your spirit, recall fragments, and clear blockages that may block you in your life today.
The nature of time and space is a complex experience, while we may experience time in a linear fashion here on Earth as humans, time is much more complex than we can truly understand. There is actually only the 'now' moment, as what we recall from the past is happening now because here we are recalling it now, and planning for the future also happens now because in this now moment we are visualizing it. We have likely had hundreds if not thousands of lives on Earth and other places in the Universe and beyond, perhaps even experienced 'lives' as atoms or even a color. The list of possibilities is vast and inconclusive which makes for very interesting and enlightening BQH sessions!
A Beyond Quantum Healing session begins with a thorough intake, from which we hone in and set your intention for the session. Perhaps you have questions about your illness, or where you came from, why you are here on Earth, what your life purpose is, what the purpose of a relationship was, wanting to connect more with your higher self and guidance, whatever the reason is it helps us jump into the BQH session. From here we set the intention then Dr. Kim will guide you into a deep state of hypnosis, a theta-brainwave state where you can access your higher consciousness and past lives. This takes us on a journey through different scenes and experiences, we may gain information, insights, connection and we most importantly experience healing and release. Once the session is complete we will do a brief review, any additional healing work necessary to help with integration and you are offered a recording of the session to review at a later date.
Dr. Kim's intuitive abilities make her an excellent guide into the etheric world of past lives and spirit world between lives. She helps to hold your intention for your session and works through the sessions by watching the energy of your experience, body and verbal cues and also listening to the spiritual guidance that is present along the way. By holding a high vibration and safe container for this work her patients are able to often have quite transformative experiences (even though sometimes it may not seem so in the moment.). BQH sessions often 'unfold' more and more deeply after the session has closed, as you integrate the work that has been done, clarity opens up around decisions, life issues and more.
Sessions are approximately 3 hours and take place in-person (online sessions will be available soon)

Looking our best can come with a high price tag in today’s society, we have tons of choices; from topical care infused with gold and diamonds, to medical treatments and surgery, holistic treatments and any one of thousands of facials, for some these are the Holy Grail of anti-aging skincare and looking great, but for others treatments fall short time and time again. I see this in my clinic in San Rafael, some patients respond very well to their Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture treatments whereas some might not see results or the results are too little. Some patients come in complaining that anything and everything they've tried hasn't worked, so helping my patients gauge whether the treatment will work for them is part of my intake process, so that I can help decode what might be going on that could hinder the results, it's why holistic skincare is so important!
The skin is the largest organ in our body, and as many are aware by now: what goes in and what’s going on in our body becomes our body, and this includes the skin. Anything from stress to digestion can have an effect on the appearance of our skin, and this also plays a role in why and how our skincare routines work, or don’t. Here are 5 common reasons your skincare isn’t producing a satisfying result, and what you can do to solve it!
If you're looking for a unique, transformative and chill event to dive into acupuncture, meditation and those relaxed alpha theta brainwave states, then I invite you to join me on Sunday August 11th at 11am or 2pm for my Acupuncture and Guided Meditation event in San Rafael, Marin County at Lion's Heart!

“Qigong and acupuncture will not only make you smarter, but also make you sexier and get better dates” touted the late Dr. Daju Suzanne Friedman to her students. They always laughed at this joke, but also knew there was definitely some merit to it, because after practicing qigong or receiving an acupuncture treatment the results were obvious; feeling better, a clarity of mind and an improved overall appearance. When a person completes a meditation retreat it’s not uncommon for their peers to see them as not just looking more clear and relaxed, but also looking more youthful and more present. Mindfulness works, it helps us to relax, let go of stress and actually takes the body into a regenerative brainwave state, and doing this has an incredible anti-aging effect throughout the entire body, from improved clarity of mind, to preserving telomeres and visible improvements in the skin and appearance.
In the same way meditation helps to take the brain and body to a restorative state, acupuncture does so as well; it’s part of the reason why patients get off the table feeling great, looking relaxed and talking about how incredibly relaxing the treatment was. There are different types of brainwaves the human body experiences, they affect different levels of consciousness and serve different purposes - all relevant and important. In today’s society, the stressed out sympathetic nervous system is ever dominant, so taking time to wind down and drop in to a regenerative state is incredibly important, although it can often be difficult for some to get into that relaxed state. Acupuncture can help almost anyone drop in to a relaxed state without the effort, making acupuncture a great tool, like mindfulness meditation to help people experience renewal and healthy aging.
