Led by the expertise of Dr. Yoonyoung Lee, our treatments aim to align the body, mind, and spirit, offering a unique path to emotional and mental wellness.

The Science and Philosophy Behind Acupuncture for Mental Health

Acupuncture, rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, operates on the principle of restoring balance to the body’s energy flow, or Qi. Dr. Lee expertly applies this technique to target specific acupoints, alleviating mental health symptoms by regulating hormones and the sympathetic nervous system, thus reducing stress and promoting relaxation.
