I was born in Korea, and I immigrated to Canada with my family when I was 11 years old. While doing my pre-med studies, I had an opportunity to observe Chiropractic doctors in practice. It changed my view of healthcare, moving from sick care, into holistic and preventive health care. I wanted to change the quality of the life for my patients.
Upon graduating from University of Calgary with a Bachelor’s degree in Human physiology and exercise, I entered Palmer College of Chiropractic, where I obtained my Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. While in Chiropractic College, I have taken extensive post-graduate training, which includes:
• 200+ hours of training in Gonstead technique
• 200+ hours in Functional clinical rehabilitation, including Selective Functional Movement Assessment ® (SFMA), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization ® (DNS) and Shirley Sahrmann
• 100+ hours in Soft tissue techniques, including Active Release Technique ® (ART) and Instrument assisted soft tissue techniques.
I believe in correcting spinal joint misalignments to restore normal function of nervous system and to restore normal joint movement. I utilize Active Release Technique to correct muscle imbalance in order to facilitate the healing process. Lastly, individualized functional rehabilitation is used to retrain proper movement pattern to achieve ideal movement in everyday life and in high level sports.
I aspire to work with all ages, gender and health, to restore their health so that they may live their life to the fullest. I also inspire to work with athletes to increase their potential and level of play.
