David Lee, acupuncturist and practitioner of Chinese herbs
Why I became an acupuncturist
As a teenager, I had my experience of acupuncture. With only one treatment, it surprisingly shortened the recovery time by half for a sprained ankle. Sports injuries were a common occurrence skateboarding and playing basketball daily. In addition, my personality and upbringing allowed me to always be interested in the well-being of others. I am an INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving) according to Myers-Briggs personality type indicator. It means that my default state is empathy, creativity, and Utopian dreaming. Instilled with a high ethic and moral sense growing up in a parishioner family, I was always active in helping others. Lastly, living in the nature of South Korea had indicated to me much of the nature’s potential. Over time, I realized the molecular medicine dealt with the basics, whereas the nature was already operating at a higher level.
The decision to be an acupuncturist was when I was fresh out of an undergraduate university. I was looking for a life-long passion with a psychology degree and pre-medicine. A senior acupuncturist had told me the benefits of being an acupuncturist. That I can treat stubborn and chronic diseases was attractive. It turned out acupuncture fills the dire need in healthcare. Since then, I felt the calling and had never turned back. It led me to a path of new discoveries for my patients and the world.
