Kim’s years of expertise in her professional practice follows a holistic or whole-being approach to health and wellness, allowing her to find the primary driver to her clients’ pain, reduced mobility, and reduced function. Drawing from evidence-based technique and knowledge, Kim supports people as they explore and recover from their pain experience and resistant patterns that are limiting them from feeling their best selves.

Kim is a root cause detective when it comes to listening to her patient’s health stories and finding patterns within their signs and symptoms. Once uncovered, the root causes are addressed with a holistic health approach that may involve simultaneous work on the body, mind, and spirit. Kim works with both men and women who are ready to make significant changes in their health and wellness. These individuals also understand the importance of the mind-body connection and the whole person perspective to rehabilitation, health and wellness.

Kim is known for her work with women in every stage of womanhood to setup their life in a way that works with their menstrual cycle and hormone health instead of against it.
