About Don Kim

  • Decades of learning and practicing Oriental Acupuncture and Medicine including Korean Hand Acupuncture both in Korea and in NZ
  • The only acupuncturist offering comprehensive Korean Hand Acupuncture seminars in English in NZ and Australia (Most Korean Hand Acupuncture teachers are not qualified acupuncturists but as KHA’s theory is from acupuncture it’s crucial to learn it from a qualified acupuncturist).
  • Much experience at a cancer clinic as a Korean Hand Acupuncturist. (Much of valuable and practically useful info is from the experience here.)

 

How did Don come to be interested in Korean Hand Acupuncture?

One day, over 30 years ago, I sprained my ankle while playing tennis. To my huge surprise I was able to go out and play again straight after 30 minutes of Korean Hand Acupuncture treatment. I was just wrapped! Since then on I have been learning and practicing Korean hand acupuncture, acupuncture, etc. and have fixed a variety of conditions just using hands even before becoming an acupuncturist. So I have come to learn how powerful and effective this technique is for various conditions especially for soft tissue conditions and sports injuries. And I like to share this very unique and most powerful technique with health practitioners anywhere in the world because I know how valuable asset this unique technique will be to you as a health practitioner.
