Lifetree Clinic's licensed acupuncturist, Junghyun Park, attempts to take some of the mystery out of acupuncture by thoroughly answering questions about the ancient practice on his website. He explains in depth how most clients feel while he is inserting the hair-thin needles, as well as how they feel after the needles have been in for a while. Instead of guaranteeing that acupuncture can solve any ailment, Park explains that, like Western medicine treatments and pleated pants, acupuncture may not work for everyone.
In addition to using acupuncture—which can alleviate problems such as digestive disorders, lower-back pain, and facial wrinkles—Park also relies on Chinese herbs, tui na massage, and cupping to improve health.
