Grace Suh, Lac, Dipl OM started suffering from chronic health issues after college. She tried everything modern science had to offer, but literally nothing helped. It was then that she went back to her family’s traditions in Eastern medicine. After weeks of treatment, the chronic pain lifted.

As a result of this healing experience, Grace wanted to learn more about Eastern medicine including acupuncture, lifestyle medicine, herbal medicine, and nutrition. That was twenty-four years ago, and she’s been in clinical practice for 20 years, helping her patients the same way she was helped.
