“Life flows between luminous heaven and tranquil earth. At their junction is Human existence. Unfolding in this middle void, the creation of ten thousand things…”

Welcome,

The view of health in the east has for millennia strived for movement into oneness: Body, Mind and Spirit. A belief that optimal health is reflected by the alignment of ethereal and material, man’s tether among the myriad of things that throw us into chaos. Disease is perceived as disharmony in the interactions of Yin and Yang, Qi and Xue; and/ or of the interaction between the human body and the environment. It is the cultivation of oneness that Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine seeks to support and rectify one’s innate recuperative energies, guiding Qi encourages equilibrium between the physical and emotion health of a being, thus improving overall function.

May Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine be another access to find your healing, well being and higher state of health.

All phenomenon have two aspects:
Yin and Yang

  • AcuDoula
  • Infant Massage Educator, CEIM
  • Relax & Renew® Restorative Yoga

J. Leah Kim is a NY/NJ state licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, with a board certification from the NCCAOM. Earning a Masters of Science from the of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, she continues to deepen her study with her master, Son Jong Kim and Qi gong practice with Master Sat Chuen Hon.

Leah’s strong suit is her personal experience with the efficacy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and her ability to bridge the the “language” and concepts that form the foundation of Oriental Medicine Theories. To begin to know and express one’s truest self, is to start to heal self and the world.

Leah, as a child suffered from digestive issues and insomnia due to her anxiety and sprains and bruises from athletics. Her mother would decide on when to travel, between Western and Eastern medicine. Respecting a holistic view of health and lifestyle, her parents instilled in her a strong love for the nature of things and the powerful beauty and destruction of nature itself. After graduating from prestigious Rhodes Island School of Design, she pursued a successful career in design. She felt that there was something lacking in her experience of the human condition through art, and decided to further pursue artistry in the form of Oriental medicine. Her love of paradox and movement and phenomenon and led her back to her roots.

Her deepest wish is to bring artistry to a lifestyle of wellness & healing.

 

Yin and Yang mutually create one another.

acupuncture

Acupuncture is a medical system originating in China and used extensively throughout Asia for more than 2,500 years.

Its growing prominence in Western countries speaks to its efficacy as a healing modality. Acupuncture balances Qi (vital energy) via meridians that transect the body.

Fine, sterile needles are inserted into specific points along the meridians to stimulate Qi flow.

Acupuncture has been reported to affect the homeostatic controls of the autonomic sytem, which consist of the sensory, motor and enteric nervous system.

The gentle effects of acupuncture stimulation can influence circulation, hormone regulation, digestion, stress and sleep cycles.

Complementary therapies such as moxibustion, tui na, aromatherapy and mediation are often included in an acupuncture session to maximize relaxation and healing.

All phenomenon posses both a Yin and Yang aspect, thus all concepts are relative.

Qi

In a five-part series,  The Mystery of Qi, reknown American journalist Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists, therapists, patients and people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness and health. This hour long special, circa 1993 was one of the first in-depth look into Acupuncture and Oriental medicine.

Yin and Yang control one another

Yin and Yang are infinitely divisible, but inseparable.

herbalism

Herbal medicine effectively treats various conditions, through a holistic approach based on an individual’s constitution and pattern identification and disease diagnosis. Herbal patents are recommended or formulas custom-blended from plant, animal, and mineral sources. Herbal formuls are designed with combinations of six to 20 ingredients acting synergistically to restore overall balance. Many of these herbs are commonly and routinely used in Asian cooking, thus food is regarded as medicine itself.

When prescribed and dispensed by a licensed practitioner, Chinese herbal medicine is safe and produces few or no side effects.

Yin and Yang are "rooted" in each other
– mutually indispensable and engendering
