I had given up on acupuncture, but I was convinced to give it one more try because I heard that Dr. Kim is amazing. I have had pain and muscle spasms in my legs for about 30 years and there are no doctors or chiropractors (or acupuncturists) who have ever been able to give me any relief and all the western doctors wanted to do is prescribe pain and anti-inflammatory meds, which I will not take. I also began losing range of motion to the point that I could not cross my legs and my legs will not rotate outward at the hip more than about 1/10th of normal range. I also could not walk for more than 15 minutes without pain. Bending down to get something on the floor or in a low cabinet was slow torture. After 2 visits to Dr. Kim my range of motion improved drastically and my pain and tightness in my muscles decreased significantly. Another benefit has been a huge drop in blood pressure. Mine was dangerously high and my doctor was pushing me to start taking medication, but I kept insisting that I would lose a few pounds, cut back on salt or find another way to bring my pressure down, but no matter what I tried, my blood pressure remained around 190/90. I never mentioned my blood pressure to Dr. Kim, but have long suspected that my chronic pain had something to do with it. Last week I went for my annual physical and cringed when I asked the nurse what my blood pressure was, but she smiled and told me, "It's great! 121/64." I was shocked! I can only attribute the drop in BP to Dr. Kim's treatments. After my 3rd visit I went to the NC mountains with my family. We went to the state park at Mt. Mitchell. Normally, I have trouble walking for even a few minutes and if I try to walk at an angle (stairs, mountains) it really hurts, but when everyone goes hiking (which I used to love) I join the group even though it means I'm pretty miserable during and after. But this time was different. I WAS ABLE TO HIKE IN THE MOUNTAINS FOR ABOUT 3 HOURS WITH NO PAIN AND I HAD NO TROUBLE KEEPING UP! Now that's AMAZING! Dr. Kim's mother and grandfather were acupuncturists and he trained under the master of acupuncture in Korea. I had my 4th visit yesterday and I feel terrific! I wish I had known about Dr. Kim a long, long time ago.
Mr. Kim is trained in an acupuncture technique that has been very effective for me. My pain levels have steadily decreased. It has taken time, but he has played a big role in my healing. In addition, he is a special person with great energy. Bluffton is lucky to have him.
