Dr. Hsun Lee, L.Ac., DAOM

Hsun (pronounced schwinn) is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in the state of California. Her career choice in Oriental Medicine was influenced by her deceased mother, a California licensed acupuncturist. In her youth, Hsun used to watch her mother treating people with needles. As a young child, she only knew needling was very painful and never could understand why people still wanted to be needled. Gradually through her life experience, Hsun learned that acupuncture and herbs could help and treat a lot of illnesses and, often she has seen the (micro) medicine doctors were unable to help to treat the same illness. More and more, she started picking up some books and started looking for natural and alternative ways of solving health problems. The more Hsun learned and studied Traditional Chinese Medicine; the more Traditional Chinese Medicine became interesting to her. It is a fun and amazing stuff. It is medicine and philosophy; it is anything and everything about us, the human being, our mind, our health, our food, and the environment surround us. Finally, Hsun went to University of East-West Medicine and formally learned Traditional Chinese Medicine. Now, Hsun is a California licensed acupuncturist with a degree of Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM).
