Dr. Jinman Kim
Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncturist
To achieve optimal health, there is an Eastern saying “鍊 精 化气, 鍊 气化 神, 鍊 神 化 虚, 虚 空 和 道”. The saying translates to:
“Control one’s body to subdue the Qi, control the Qi to subdue one’s mind, control one’s mind to attain unselfishness, and therefrom realize Oneness.”
In medical translation, the duty of a doctor is to carefully observe the mind, body, and Qi and help patients to be able to train their own to optimize their health and quality of life.
While Western Medicine is based on natural science and focuses on material things, Oriental Medicine, which is based on natural philosophy and Western medical knowledge, puts emphasis on body and mind simultaneously.
Fortunately, I studied ancient Asian philosophy at a young age and worked as a nutrition instructor. After passing the age of 40, I completed my 8 years of Chinese medicine studies in Shanghai, China and became a certified Chinese medical doctor. I will do my best to maintain optimal health of my patients by carefully observing their mind and body based on my experiences of more than 50,000 patients in China and Canada. It is my belief that a doctor should only focus on the patient, and for me the greatest reward is the quality of your life to be optimized.
