Sports Medicine, Pain and Nutrition

Joon “JB” Kim, L.Ac. has been working at Lokahi since June, 2021. He is a California State Board Licensed Acupuncturist and a Nationally Certified Diplomat of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and has been practicing for 9 years.

JB specializes in sports medicine, pain management, digestive health, allergies, and internal medicine with the application of Chinese herbal medicine.

From a very young age, JB was influenced by Chinese medicine by his father, an acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. However, his passion for Chinese Medicine didn’t fully develop until later on in life after facing several health challenges of his own. With the help of his father through Chinese Medicine, JB’s condition was successfully treated. Realizing the power and efficacy of this natural holistic medicine coupled with a desire to help others achieve a better quality of life, JB decided to pursue a path in Chinese Medicine.

JB holds a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University where he specialized in Integrative Sports Medicine and later assisted competitive and pro athletes to enhance performance and recover. During school, he completed an externship at the renowned China Medical University Hospital in Taiwan where he gained valuable knowledge in treating various conditions from strokes to orthopedic trauma.

JB is a first-generation Korean American and has been living in the Bay Area for over 20 years.  When he’s not brushing up his skills to become a better practitioner you can find him reading, enjoying nature and the outdoors, or improving his Mandarin.

JB is amazing! I came to Lokahi in a lot of pain and over some time working with JB my pain is not only manageable, it is almost non existent. I would wholeheartedly recommend JB and the entire staff at Lokahi clinic. Thank you JB for all that you have done for me! I totally appreciate you

JB was very thorough in his examination of me and asked lots of questions. He did some cupping and guasha and trigger point therapy along with some acupuncture needles. After my session I felt immediate relief in my right neck and shoulder. It was my first session and I can't wait for my next few sessions with JB. He is very knowledgable and I recommend you try him.
