Oriental medical protocol says 'first acupuncture, second moxibustion and third medicine'.
Acupuncture and moxibustion are the first and second method of treatment. Therefore, acupuncture and moxibustion is the most important part of traditional Korean medicine which includes physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment.

Through clinical trials and study, we work hard to develop new methods involving acupuncture and moxibustion. We have diverse courses for master's and doctor's degree.

We focus on diagnosis, treatment and quick cure of these diseases.

These disorders come from intensive stress, fatigue, decrease in immunity, etc. Using DITI and brain MRI, differentiation and diagnosis of central type facial nerve palsy and mass lesionis achieved. With guidelines for everyday life accompanied by an explanation for prognosis, acupuncture & moxibustion therapy, dermal needle therapy, taping therapy, aroma therapy and medication therapy are also widely used.
3. Spine·Joint Clinic
We specialize in pains of the neck, low back, limbs, hands and feet which come from problems in bones, muscles, and ligaments of the neck, back, low back, and various joints. Herniation of cervical lumbar disc, cervical lumbar spondylosis, ankylosing spondylitis, spinal stenosis, osteoporosis, frozen shoulder, and sprains are commonly treated diseases in the specialized clinic. Myalgia, MPS(myofascial pain syndrome), and carpal tunnel syndrome are also effectively treated in this clinic. Systemic diagnosis is processed, followed by co-diagnosisboth in Oriental and Western medical clinics, which is then treated with acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping therapy, taping therapy, and medication therapy for the smooth cycle of Qi and Blood within the musculoskeletal system. This, in turn, helps the recovery of muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and at the same time, reduces pain and increases the range of movements by strengthening muscular power and attenuating the stress on muscles. Described is how neck pain, shoulder pain, and low back pain are treated clinically.
4. Arthritis Clinic
Rheumatic arthritis is different from other arthritic diseases in that the pain is not limited to certain joints but migrates through out all limbs. It is an autoimmune disease in which swollen joints hurt and joint destruction occur with pain, which then induces joint deformity. Osteoarthritis, occurring usually on the knee joints of over middle-aged people, is a disease where joint cartilage wears out to cause local degenerative changes. The arthritis clinic provides both oriental medical and western medical methods for accurate speculations. X-ray, bone scan, BDM (bone density meter) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) for western medical examinations, and DITI(digital infrared thermal imaging system) followed by medication,aqua-acupuncture, bee- venom acupuncture, and physical therapy for Oriental medical examinations.
5. Bee venom acupuncture clinic
We use bee venom acupuncture to treat various acute and chronic diseases involving pain. Non specialists use bee venom acupuncture directly from bees which may cause serious conditions such as anaphylactic shock. However, we extract bee venom from bees by electric shock and carefully put it into trigger points to avoid dangerous reactions and gain both biochemical effect of bee venom and effect of acupuncture. Moreover, we published paper in SCI journal, 'Pain' which showed effectiveness of bee venom acupuncture on arthritis and through this, we earned global recognition of effect of acupuncture.

We use device to find exact trigger point on ears and put specially designed acupuncture and use bandage to fix the acupuncture. After the treatment, patients lose desire to smoke because of change in taste of smoke and nausea when smoking. The 70% of patients with anti smoking acupuncture treatment actually abstain from smoke and to get best effect, patients' strong will to abstain from smoking is necessary.

In traditional Korean medicine, these diseases are categorized as wilting disease. These diseases are generally deficient pattern and related to stomach, spleen and kidney. Therefore, we use medicine which tonifies stomach, spleen and yin and eliminates dampness to promote spleen's function. It also promotes function of lung's fluid and humor and liver and kidney's essence and blood to provide nutrients in muscles and blood vessels. We work hard to take care and treat these diseases through acupuncture and medicinal treatment.
