Growing up with a massage therapist mom, a naturalist dad, and a circle of wise women family friends, Kim has felt drawn to the world of healing arts since her youth. It was a health crisis with Lyme Disease and tick-borne illness in her mid-twenties, however, that drew her in further. Through an integrative combination of therapies, lifestyle changes, and spiritual exploration, Kim found relief, hope, deeper self-intuition, and a path forward — and was inspired to support others in finding the same.
Kim’s personal healing journey and her clinical experience have cemented her belief in the power of integrative medicine to support the whole self — body, mind, and spirit — in achieving long-lasting wellness and deep transformation. She supports patients with a wide range of concerns, including pain, complex/chronic conditions, anxiety and depression, asthma and allergies, digestion, and reproductive and sexual health. Kim strives to help patients of all ages feel affirmed, empowered, and aware of their intrinsic healing potential and intuition.
Kim is licensed with the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and is certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She graduated summa cum laude with a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN in 2015.
Continuing her studies, Kim completed a 6-month post-graduate Pediatric Integrative Health Fellowship at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital in 2016, and in April 2017, she studied in Zhengzhou, China in the areas of pain, oncology, pediatrics, and tui na massage. Kim has received certifications in Reiki and Cosmetic Acupuncture, and has completed advanced study in LGBTQ+ health care, Shonishin (Japanese needle-free pediatric acupuncture), Lyme Disease, and hypnotic techniques for pain and stress management. Kim will be completing a health coaching program in 2018, and is excited to incorporate integrative coaching into her offerings at the clinic.
