    I have just had my second appointment with Master Kim. Aside from relieving my pain, I felt like I just spent a day in a work-class spa. Forget the shrinks, the massage therapists and spa days. You will wonderful both mentally and physically after a visit with Master Kim.

    I used to walk miles and on a daily basis. With the temporary physical attack walking the 10 minutes (if you not a fast walker could take you up to 15 minutes) from the Metro train) Station to my office building. This was arduous so I started riding the public transportation (bus) to and from the building. If I walked I would have to stop and take my breathe then walk again stop and talk my breathe until eventually I arrived at the office building - pretty undaunting. After Kosa Acupuncture one day I decided to walk and to my surprise I was able to make the entire trip without all the stopping and it was such an easy walk. I even have more energy and can run a little now - I was impressed and very well pleased - this is a major praise report.

    Master Kim is truly a master at Accupuncture.  Professional, polite, kind mannered, and gets results!  My ankle pain of almost a year is gone after only two treatments!  And he teaches you as he works.  If you are looking for help with any Ailment, look no further than KOSA!

    It was a great experience with Master Kim. I have been suffering for over 15 years 24/7 with a chronic headache. I have tried so many doctors and so many other remedies for over 10 years and nothing had helped this much. not to mention all the side effects of medication. I am just so blessed I found KOSA. During the very first session I started feeling a lot,lot better and I cant thank Master Kim enough. May he live a blessed,healthy life for healing me and giving me this great moments of life free from such a severe long-lasting suffering.

    My wife had a terrible lower back and upper back pain. She was suffering her lower back pain last 5 years and upper back pain last 2 years. We tried with stereo injection, physical therapy. She was not getting better by any treatment. As her orthopedic doctor suggested her to try acupuncture we went to KOSA Acupuncture. Within few treatment by Master Kim, her pain level come down to 5% out of 100%. It's amazing.

    I had injured my elbow and had to go see a physical therapist. I was in and out of therapy for about a year when my physical therapist recommend I try KOSA acupuncture. The first time I went to see Byoung I could barely bend my arm and with one needle that he placed above my elbow the pain had subsided and I was able to bend my arm. I bought 10 sessions and after the fourth session I was pain free and able to go back to training. I loved KOSA so much that I took my mom, my kids, and a few friends to get treated by Byoung. My 7 year old daughter was having a very difficult time with her school work and after only one session with Byoung using only magnets she got a 100% on her spelling test. Youwon't find a kinder, gentler man than Byoung Soon Kim. He was not only a friend but has become part of the family. Byoung doesn't do this for the money, he does it to help people in need. I loved his treatments so much that I took the course to learn KOSA and I've been helping family and friends with a 100% success rate. So if you're tired of living in pain then you owe yourself to try KOSA acupuncture. The pain relief is felt immediately during just your first visit and if you have the pleasure of meeting Byoung you'll realize what a big heart this man has. God bless you Byoung. You are truly missed in Michigan

    Doctor Kim was so bright explaining the philosophy of human health. And I agree with his theory about influence of food culture and body culture on the health condition. I highly recommend to meet with Dr. Kim everybody who wants to understand and feel the magic of his treatment
