Here are a few photos of me riding horses again; Dr. Park had asked if I'd be willing to share some with you. This is something I wasn't sure I would ever be able to do again after my cancer treatment. But, with the help of Dr. Park- with his compassion, care, support and treatment of my whole person- he helped me regain my physical strength and stamina, and my mental fortitude and trust that I could get better.
Duke Health Front Desk Staff Over the past year I've seen patients walk into our office having to be assisted with a walking aide. Once your services are completed the same patient walk out of our office into the world with a new start in life. Your patients rave consistently on how thorough your treatments are and life changing. I respect your healing methods, process and appreciate all that you do. Thank you for being such an outstanding provider and I wish you good luck with future achievements.
Dr. Park is very professional, and a good listener. Fortunate to be his patient.
Dr. Park has a passion for supporting his patients. He elaborately guides his patients to educate about the cause of symptoms and how to manage for maximizing healing. He is a superb doctor!! I would highly recommend him.
Dr Park was one of the best Doctors I have seen through a VA referral. He was professional, listened, and genuinely cared for my wellbeing. This office was SO helpful and professional in navigating some difficulties in getting this outside appointment through the VA. ... This has been an EXCELLENT experience with DR Parks and his office!
Herbal medicine is an important part of traditional systems of medicine in many civilizations including Chinese and Korean medicine.
Herbal products have been studied for many medical problems, including stroke, heart disease, mental disorders, and respiratory diseases (such as bronchitis and the common cold).
At the Meridius Clinic for Integrative Health, highly selective and effective natural herbal medicines with reliable safety profiles will be recommended to the most compatible patients.

Cupping is a practice used in traditional medicine in several parts of the world, including Far East Asia and the Middle East. It involves creating suction on the skin using a glass, ceramic, bamboo, or plastic cup. Negative pressure is created in the cup either by applying a flame to the cup to remove oxygen before placing it on the skin or by attaching a suction device to the cup after it is placed on the skin. In “wet cupping,” the skin is pierced, and blood flows into the cup. “Dry cupping” doesn’t involve piercing the skin.
*Cupping can cause side effects such as persistent skin discoloration, scars, burns, and infections, and may worsen eczema or psoriasis.
Inserting thin needles through the skin. It is one of the practices used in traditional medicines in East Asian countries including China, Japan and Korea.
Some studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. Therefore, acupuncture appears to be a reasonable option for people with chronic pain to consider.
Acupuncture is considered safe as relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. It is noteworthy that improper delivery of treatments by unqualified provider is more likely to result in serious adverse events.
Electroacupuncture (EA) involves first inserting a needle at acupuncture point and connecting the needle with an electrical stimulator that sends electrical currents or pulses into the body. Electrical currents have effects, which can influence the cells, tissues and entire body.
In clinical studies, electroacupuncture has shown to be effective in treating conditions including pain, muscle spasms, urinary incontinence.
EA is safe for most people; but those with a pacemaker or a history of seizures requires extreme caution.
Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based whole person approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
Meridius Clinic for Integrative Health considers “breathe well, eat well, move well, and rest well” as Four Pillars to optimize vitality. Various chronic dysfunctions and illnesses such as insomnia, bloating, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, multi-joint pain can be approached from a functional medicine perspective.
Since Traditional system of medicine in Korea has sustained such a whole person approach, we offer functional medicine consultation and advice for various chronic conditions.
