Hannah Kim - Acupuncture Practitioner in Asheville
Hannah Kim – Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist
I am a bridge between Eastern and Western cultures by heritage, education, avocation, and spirituality.
- By heritage, I am a second generation Korean American. My parents immigrated to the United States in 1969, and I was born in Bethesda, Maryland. Both of my parents, five of my aunts and uncles, five of my cousins, plus my sister are western medical doctors, in addition to one of my grandfathers.
- By education, I graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill with two bachelors degrees, BS Biology and BA Chemistry. In addition to these I hold two Masters degrees, one Masters of Liberal Arts (MLA) from University of North Carolina, Asheville, as well as a Masters of Acupuncture (M.Ac.) from Tai-Sophia Institute in Laurel, Maryland.
- By avocation, I have a great love of the outdoors and most outdoor activities, such as whitewater kayaking, skiing, hiking, backpacking and biking. Also I equally enjoy inner activities such as yoga, t’ai ji chuan, qi gong and meditation.
- Finally by spirituality, I was raised Southern Baptist, and now have an extensive study and practice in Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism.
I draw from my experiences as an Asian American, my studies of western and eastern sciences and philosophies to help my patients heal and flourish into their lives more fully.
