    Dr. Richie Sun
    Dr.TCM, R.Ac.

Then, he went to school to learn Acupuncture, Acupressure, Herbology, Fengshui, and Hypnotherapy.

    Richie’s treatment style is quite different from other practitioners. Since he knows several different therapies, he can look at the patient as a whole and find the root cause for any symptoms. To achieve best therapeutic results, he usually performs acupressure, acupuncture herbal treatment and hypnotherapy together depending on different conditions.
