Kui Hee Han
Prior to pursuing a career in acupuncture, Kui Hee was studying Life Science at the University of Toronto to pursue his life goal of becoming a medical doctor. Unfortunately, he had suffered from seizures in his early 20’s, and was later diagnosed with Tonic-Clonic Epilepsy (formerly known as grand mal seizure epilepsy).
After 4 years of trying different treatments, he looked for alternatives and found a Korean-Chinese doctor in Toronto, where he was guided to acupuncture and herbal medicine. After only 6 months of acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments, he has stopped having seizures ever since.
Kui Hee was drawn to acupuncture so he moved to BC to study Traditional Chinese Medicine. Kui Hee believes that traditional Chinese medicine can help with many diseases and health conditions and provide a safe alternative.
Kui Hee combines Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture with Traditional Korean Medicine Acupuncture for treating pain management and various disorders.
