Acupuncture and Herbs: Reconnecting to Sensation with Traditional Asian Medicine in Beaverton
Numbness, a disturbing absence of feeling, can disrupt daily life and raise concerns about underlying health issues. While conventional medicine often relies on pharmaceuticals, Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Beaverton, Oregon, offers a unique approach: Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM).
TAM, encompassing diverse healing practices from various Asian cultures, prioritizes holistic wellness and natural remedies. Dr. Sohn’s approach to treating numbness draws on this rich tapestry, weaving acupuncture and herbal medicine to address the root cause of the problem, not just the symptom.
Acupuncture: Rekindling the Flow of Qi
Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TAM, involves inserting fine needles at specific points on the body. These points are gateways to meridians, channels through which vital energy, known as Qi, flows. When Qi becomes blocked or imbalanced, it can manifest as numbness.
Dr. Sohn’s acupuncture expertise lies in his ability to diagnose and address these blockages. Using various needle techniques, he aims to restore the harmonious flow of Qi, alleviating numbness and promoting overall well-being.

Herbal Medicine: Nature’s Nurturing Touch
Complementing acupuncture, Dr. Sohn personalizes herbal formulas to address the specific type and cause of numbness. TAM’s vast pharmacopeia offers a treasure trove of natural remedies, each with unique properties to address nerve health and Qi imbalances.
From invigorating herbs like ginseng to pain-relieving plants like turmeric, Dr. Sohn carefully selects and blends these natural wonders to create personalized herbal concoctions. These gentle yet effective remedies work synergistically with acupuncture to promote healing from within.

He recognizes the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit and tailors his treatment plan to address any underlying factors contributing to the condition. It may include dietary recommendations, lifestyle adjustments, and stress management techniques.
By addressing the root cause and promoting overall well-being, Dr. Sohn empowers his patients to regain sensation and thrive in a holistic health state.
