Jungho Jang LAc. Having studied oriental medicine in Beijing, served as a UN Peacekeeper in Lebanon, and experienced the fast-paced lifestyle of Los Angeles, Jungho Jang believes that people today are too rushed and pressed for time. He feels that people are losing themselves in their quests, and that stress symptoms are inevitable. Jang wants to reverse this trend. While it may be impossible to slow down the pace of society in general, Jang takes a “one patient at a time” approach. Oriental medicine sees the mind and body as one with an imbalance in either the mind or the body affecting the other. When the mind is stressed, the body suffers and vice versa. Jang’s goal is for each of his patients to develop a healthy, balanced mind and body thus enabling survival in today’s fast-paced world.

Olivia and David are such great acupuncturists that I even considered giving up my weekly talk-therapy sessions. This is how beneficial I found Gen Acupuncture to be. Both of them are so professional and goal-oriented that they actually told me that I didn't need any more acupuncture session after a course of treatments. Read more »
