Practice Philosophy and Techniques
Dr. Kim has integrated a variety of very special techniques into her practice. The over-arching theme of her work is Incarnational Healing, which is a name that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the mind, body and life. What happens in the thoughts, choices and behaviors, is expressed in the life circumstances, and the body's symptomatology as well. Likewise, what we do with our bodies impacts our hearts, minds and souls. We can start the healing through the visible or the invisible, and affect a change in both. By understanding the dynamics of the injuries, patterns or illnesses, we can find a template that then can be used to tease out the corresponding events in the perceptions of the mind. The healing can then be applied to both simultaneously.
Dr. Kim is one of a growing number of doctors in the USA to be certified in Matrix Repatterning (CMRP), a remarkable tool for releasing trauma, tension, expansion and distortion from the frame of the body. This work increases range of motion, normalizes muscle tone and strength, stabilizes joints and releases tension in the matrix that holds the body together. The results are quick and lasting. She also coaches practitioners learning the method through the Matrix Institute.
Physical and emotional traumas often result in some muscles over-contracting and others under-contracting (being locked in fight, flight or freeze modes). She uses Somatic Movements to retrain the body to move efficiently and comfortably.
She is a board certified chiropractic internist (DABCI). This diplomate required 300 hours of advanced training in diagnostics and treatment of internal disorders. This training encompassed: primary care, advanced diagnostics, nutrition and functional medicine. She is also educated in functional genomics and the creation of custom nutritional protocols that optimize your specific genetic make-up.
Dr. Kim is certified in Quantum Neuro Reset Technique (QNRT), an innovative method that releases shocks, stresses and traumas from the lobes of the brain, cranial nerves, organs and other body tissues. She uses NeuroEmotional Technique (NET) to assist her patients in releasing the stresses that may be creating or prolonging physical symptoms. NET allows her to specifically target the connections between a specific moment or thought to a specific symptom. The results are amazing!
