I have been bodybuilding for over 5 years and recently I’ve been dealing with a lot of imbalances/tightness. I have putin my share of hours with different specialists(chiropractic, deep tissue massage, pt, etc.) and have done my research throughout the years so I would say I’m accustomed to dealing with these things. However recently it began affecting my daily routine where I felt uneven throughout the day and would notice it during my workouts. I decided to give cupping a try as I have done acupuncture and heard great things. With all that being said, my experience with Dr. Kang was by far the best. Right away, he noticed the lopsidedness of my body(thank god). It was very easy to speak with him about my past, daily routines and habits. You can tell right away during treatment he has a strong desire to help you and his passion for the field is unquestioned. I can go on, but I’ll let future patients see for themselves. I’ll definitely be returning. CUPPING IS A GAME CHANGER

Dr. Kang is not only extremely knowledgeable in all areas of his work but is also a very kind and compassionate man. He takes his time with all of his patients, and talks through all of their questions and ailments. This sort of care is truly needed and is seriously lacking in the healthcare industry. Through Dr. Kang’s knowledge and care he has helped me recover through numerous injuries over the years. Thank you!

Dr. Kang was fantastic! He spent a lot of time with me during the consult as well as the treatment. He does more than just acupuncture such as manual therapy (massage) and taping. I've seen a few acupuncturists and he was by far the best at putting te needles in.. I hardly even felt it. Highly recommend!

My discomfort level has come down very dramatically to the point where I am almost free of any ailment. He took his time and checked in on me during my treatment very often to see if I was comfortable. For every session, he's usually very engaged with me start to finish, he does not even mind doubling my session when he is not too busy. I really do appreciate that he always wants to do more for me, so it is nice to know that he actually cares !

I had pretty much exhausted all my options for my back pain -- chiropractor, massage therapy, etc, and decided to give acupuncture a shot. I am SO happy I made the decision to visit Dr. Kang. He was able to squeeze me in the same day I called, and really took the time to discuss my concerns, the various treatment options, and what I'd like the accomplish. I felt comfortable and relaxed as he explained step by step while he conducted my first acupuncture treatment -- which was AMAZING. My back pain has subsided, and I definitely feel with continuous treatment my quality of life will improve. Overall, great doctor. Friendly, funny, understanding, caring, professional. It's a huge plus he takes insurance! Highly recommend.

I am a 39 year-old actor with a very serious needle phobia. 20 months ago I developed a large rash in the center of my face. As a professional actor this was a very big deal. The best dermatologists and prescription creams had no effect. It felt like a career killer. With 2 months to go before a major industry showcase I swallowed my fears and went to see Dr Kang. Within the first few minutes he felt the pulse on both of my wrists and seemed to intuit so much about my physical state. We spoke at length about my symptoms and he gave me a very confident diagnosis: yin deficiency. I wish I could attach a photo of my face to this review because his advice, herbal remedies and acupuncture have completely healed my rash! I've also seen dramatic improvements in other areas of my life that seemed to coincide with the two treatments I had at Dr Kang's office - most notably a complete cessation of chronic nighttime cramping in my calf muscles that had persisted for months. I can't say enough about Dr Kang and his patient, wholistic and comprehensive approach. Five huge stars!

Dr. Kang and his staff were excellent! He did an incredible job of listening to my symptoms, running tests to diagnose the cause, and coming up with an action plan. He was extremely thorough and attentive, and on top of that, he genuinely cared about getting me better. The first treatment was fantastic, and I walked out of his office with more pain relief than I have from any physical therapy or chiropractic. Cannot recommend enough!
