About Dr. Sook Chung

Dr. Sook Chung

Acupuncturist, AP, LAC, NCCAOM, DOM, PhD

I was born in South Korea in a small mountain village. All my life, I have seen the wonders natural herbal medicine can do for patients. I decided when I was very young to help as many people as possible through acupuncture and herbal medicine the way my ancestors have done for over 5000 years.

I am very grateful that I've had the opportunity to help thousands of patients over the last 30 years by successful traditional chinese medicine, acupuncture, MOXA, and cupping.

In Korea, I studied acupuncture and chinese medicine at some of the best universties.

  • Korean Modern Acupuncture Research Society - Graduated 1975
  • Koryu Hand Acupuncture Research Society - Instructor, 1978-1982
  • Army Reserve Chinese Medicine School - Graduated 1985
  • Bethesda Medical Missionary - Director, 1986-1989

I moved to the United States to continue my education:

  • Royal University of America
  • Emperor's College of Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • Samra University of Oriental Medicine - Master of Science in Acupuncture/Herbology (1992)
  • Yuin University - Doctor of Philosophy in Oriental Medicine (2001)

I started practicing in the United States in 1992:

  • 1992-1993: Practiced in Los Angeles, California
  • 1994-1998: Practiced in New York City
  • 1999:  Opened Dr. Chung's Acupuncture & Herbs in Orlando, Florida
