About S Acupuncture
Welcome to our acupuncture clinic! We believe in treating the person, not the disease.
You’ll find that we offer a level of comprehensive care that is rare in today’s healthcare climate. We do this by focusing on prevention, balance and wellness through Acupuncture (including ear acupuncture and electro acupuncture), Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, Cupping, Gua-Sha and other elements of traditional oriental medicine.
What differentiates us
The goal is the total restoration of health.
The damages of chemical dependence or the suppression of the body’s own natural ability to heal are reasons to try acupuncture.
Not only is acupuncture useful to treat a multitude of conditions, it can also help prevent the onset of disease.
How we were trained
Sophia encountered acupuncture and oriental medicine in her youth when her aunt had been practicing. Throughout her youth and early adulthood, she was interested in Eastern philosophy and it also lead her to become a practitioner of acupuncture and oriental medicine.
She strongly believes that the effectiveness of acupuncture and oriental medicine is based on logical theory and clinical experiences. At the same time, she does not deny western medicine.
She was educated at Samra and Dongguk University Los Angeles and earned a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM). She was trained in Korea, as well as interned at USC Engemann Student Health Center and Dongguk University Los Angeles in the United States. She earned Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) at Dongguk University Los Angeles in expecting further academic and clinical level.
She practiced in the Los Angeles area after gaining a CA state license as an acupuncturist, and she has now moved to Claremont. Her own experiences of acupuncture and oriental medicine make her confident that she can help others seeking better solution of their holistic health and well-being
