About Don Kim

How did I come to be interested in Korean HAND ACUPUNCTURE?

One day, over 30 years ago, I sprained my ankle while playing tennis. To my big surprise I was able to go out and play again straight after 30 minutes of Korean Hand Acupuncture treatment. I was wrapped! Since then on I have been learning and practicing Korean hand acupuncture, acupuncture, etc. and have fixed many different conditions just using hands. So I know how powerful and effective this technique is for various conditions especially soft tissue conditions and sports injuries. And I like to share this very unique and most powerful technique with health practitioners because I know the benefits you are going to get from this technique will be huge even after 1 DAY course.

I am also happy to announce that I (partly) opened 'Wellness Retreat' in a beautiful bush environment to help people struggling with difficult or long standing conditions with useful information I have learned over a few decades while teaching to them very safe Self Care methods with which they can help improve their conditions by themselves.
