Dr. Sonmi Lee is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine formally trained in the United States. She began her pursuit of Eastern medicine after suffering from debilitating wrist pain where she lost all function and was not even able to hold a steering wheel to drive. Her medical doctor believed that surgical intervention was her only option, and the success rate at that time was rather poor. Out of desperation, she put her skepticism aside to try acupuncture which completely eliminated her pain in a matter of weeks. Since then, she has become a strong advocate of acupuncture and holistic medicine as a powerfully effective tool for safely managing pain, health and well-being.
Dr. Lee has over ten years of clinical experience treating thousands of patients serving the greater Southern California region. Dr. Lee has a passion for providing comprehensive, individualized care through acupuncture and herbal medicine with an emphasis on patient education and lifestyle coaching. She has a special focus in pain management, pediatrics, anti-aging, women’s health issues, psychoemotional issues (eg. stress, anxiety, depression), digestive problems, insomnia, fatigue, headaches, allergies, pain management (musculoskeletal pain, back pain, etc), arthritis, and symptoms associated with many chronic illnesses including hypertension, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune disorders.
