Introducing Integrative Korean Medicine *

Integrating five components of Korean Medicine - Eight Constitution Medicine, Constitutional Acupuncture, Personalised Herbal Medicine, a diet and lifestyle Regimen, and deep abdominal (Danjeon) breathing.

Dr Hyonna Kang's specialty is working with her patients using a personalised and holistic medical approach, called Korean Eight Constitution Medicine (ECM) & Constitutional Acupuncture. The effectiveness of ECM has been extensively investigated through peer-reviewed clinical research and empirical evidence based on tens of thousands of patients for more than fifty years.

Why Eight Constitution Medicine (ECM)?

People are different. We all have different abilities and preferences, and the same applies to your health and ‘constitution’ (or ‘body type’). So knowing your constitution - for example, what food and fitness activities suit you - is the foundation to leading a healthy life.

ECM recognises these differences and that not all disease is the same, presenting different trigger factors, inflammatory responses, and symptoms. ECM treats disease on this basis by restoring equilibrium based on a patients' constitutional characteristics.

Constitutional Acupuncture

It is a powerful method that can result in rapid improvement of complaints such as: neuralgia, asthma, glaucoma, irritable bowel syndrome, hay fever, arthritis, endometriosis, infertility, dermatitis, low immune function, chronic pain, migraines, insomnia, and digestive dysfunction. It can not only relieve major complaints, but it can also tend to resolve other complaints at the same time because of the treatment's holistic nature.

Personalised Herbal medicine

Herbal Medicine formulations are personalised based on the patient's Constitution and disease state.

Diet and lifestyle Regimen

Dr Hyonna Kang's enduring focus is on prevention, so she provide a personalised regimen of diet and lifestyle advice to each patient after several treatments. This allows her patients to take control of their own health and prevent illness over the long term.

Deep abdominal (Danjeon) breathing

When we do Danjeon breathing, more oxygen goes to all parts of our body, so it stimulates metabolism and makes more oxygen available to the cells. The organs, autonomic nervous function, and musculoskeletal system can certainly get benefit by lowering your heart rate, regulating blood pressure, and decreasing release of stress hormone. Dan Jeon breathing pulls down energy from the chest and head and relaxes the mind.
