She offers her skill and expertise to all patients and is particularly interested in women’s health, focusing on complementary medicine for infertility, irregular periods, menopause, and all other disorders related with female, chronic disorders and pain management.
Chinese Medicine is holistic and has strength in restoring vitality (life force energy) in all dimensions of body and mind. Kang Ja enjoys working closely with her patients and uses her knowledge in TCM to both formulate primary treatment plans or complement Western medicine treatments when needed.
Her approach is to value client education and with this education influence overall wellbeing.
