A Part of My Health Regimen

The benefits of acupuncture treatment and herbal medicine became part of my health regimen in June 2011. What a fortunate day, the day I met Sunghyun Tjen at Holy Family Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine. I did not know then that I was placing myself in the hands of a thorough, knowledgeable and compassionate practitioner. I express gratitude to him for his sincere interest in every aspect of my well-being, for his detailed consultation before each treatment and for his successful results which have provided optimum healing and comfort in my daily life. If you are looking for an impeccable acupuncturist and herbalist you need look no further than Holy Family. My most sincere thanks go to Sunghyun for his fine work and his dedication to his patients.

Friendly, Attentive, Professional

I have been going to Holy Family Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine for my lower back pain and I feel lucky to have found such a good acupuncturist. I was in a rear end collision many years ago and got numerous physiotherapy treatments. However, the back pain didn't go away even after more than 5 years. I wish I had known Dr. Tjen earlier because I can definitely feel the pain healing after his acupuncture treatment and my vitality recovering with the herbal medicine he prescribed me. He is very thorough and listens to any of your complaints. I appreciate the fact that he asked questions instead of just brushing it off as I think many people would. He is very friendly while still being extremely attentive and professional. For an ongoing restoration of your health, Dr. Tjen is someone who takes the time to make sure he does a good job.

Grateful! I was able to dance again!

Because of Holy Family Clinic, I was able to dance again! I had been training for a dance performance for awhile, and in the last week before the show, I had so much pain and stiffness in my knees and back, that I thought I wouldn't be able to participate in the show. Luckily, I found Holy Family Clinic on the internet. And Dr. Sunghyun Tjen made the time and space to see me at the last minute. In only two sessions, I felt a tremendous difference, and my movement was much easier. I also gained the confidence I needed to hold up throughout the performance with a smile. My body was strong enough to get through it because of the treatments I received at Holy Family Clinic. What impressed me was that not only did Sunghyun Tjen help improve my body physically, but his energy, genuine nature, and ability to really listen to me as a whole person made a significant difference to my frame of mind. I could really resonate with his philosophies on health and life, and really appreciated his sense of balance in the way he approaches medicine. It helped to remind me to take care of my body in a more holistic manner and I feel so grateful to know that there are practitioners out there like him. After sharing a little of his story with me about how he got into acupuncture and holistic medicine, Sunghyun Tjen said, "I think I was just meant to do this." I wholeheartedly agree, you definitely were.

He explains and suggests what needs to be done!

Highly recommended. This clinic is above all expectations! At family practice I was told that "there is nothing that can help me with my pain" and "you will just have to deal with it". I am so grateful that I was recommended to this clinic. Dr. Jason is patient, knowledgeable and he listens carefully. He explains and suggests what needs to be done, always has positive solutions and the healing is apparent. Thank you so much!

Exceptional and Caring

I've been going to Holy Family Clinic for over two months now due to a recent back injury. I have found the treatments to be exceptional and the caring service provided to be a constant. I can't say enough good things about my experiences there , I highly recommend checking Holy Family Clinic out if you are in need of acupuncture.

Attention to Details

I had to visit Holy Family Acupuncture& Herbal Medicine for my feet problem that suddenly appeared. I thought it would take a long time to recover but with his detailed approach to my feet problem, I actually recovered within two weeks. Visited only twice but every time I visited, my feet gradually (and quickly) got better. He is also very approachable & friendly but that's not the only reason why I would recommend Dr. Tjen. I would recommend him because he pays attention to the details; he finds the root of the symptoms through my daily life style which I found this quite surprising. Thank you Holy Family Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine! 😀

Helps with My Daily Ailments

I have been suffering from extreme neck and shoulder pain for quite some time now and after only several visits he was able to alleviate the pain and diagnose the problem. He is actually helping me with other ailments that I face daily. What a blessing to have met such a wonderful person!

My migraines have completely gone away!
I visited Holy Family Acupuncture for severe migraines after meeting with various doctors, neurologists, and being prescribed various pills. With only a few acupuncture treatments, my migraines have completely gone away. I recommend Holy Family Acupuncture to anyone suffering from headaches and migraines as well as various other injuries or issues. Thanks for all of your help!

Made me Comfortable with the Procedure

Dr Tjen has a very calm and professional demeanour. He paid close attention to my story of how I injured my back and asked all the right questions before proceeding. This was my first visit to an Acupuncturist and Dr Tjen explained everything in detail which made me quite comfortable with the procedure. I seem to have got the works - acupuncture, electro-stimulation, cupping and a massage. I can confidently say that I will be coming back for a followup treatment and would highly recommend Holy Family Acupuncture to anyone looking for a treatment in the North Shore.
