    Dr. J. K. Kuan was born and raised in a country where Chinese medicine has been deep rooted in the culture and lifestyle. Since childhood, he had witnessed his family members using Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for healing and wellness. Later in life, after years of being active in playing sports and practicing martial arts, he personally benefitted from Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and Chiropractic treatment for shoulder, knee pain and sciatica, which inspired him to become a licensed Acupuncturist and Chiropractor. Dr. Kuan graduated with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCUHS) with a Doctor’s degree in Chiropractic and a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. There he received the Outstanding Service Award for his individual contributions to the college, made the Dean’s List, and was recognized by the California State Assembly for his steadfast commitment to the community and outstanding leadership in Traditional Asian Medicine and Health Sciences.

He also served as President of the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association, President of the Progressive Acupuncture Association, President of the Tai Chi Club, and a Higher Education Teaching Assistant. He is deeply passionate about his work in alternative medicine, and joyfully shares his knowledge and skills with his colleagues and community. Dr. Kuan began his Acupuncture and Chiropractic career in San Diego and Santa Monica, California where he was working with a seasoned Chiropractor. From there he brought together many of the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern Acupuncture and Chiropractic techniques for excellent healing and wellness. Since then, he has continued to build his reputation as a practitioner who is passionate about healing and providing care to those that find themselves in physical distress. After years of practice in California, Dr. Kuan pursued the opportunity to bring his clinical experience and healing techniques to the East Coast so that he could provide care to those in need. Dr. J. K. Kuan is National Board Certified (NCCAOM) (NBCE) and a Licensed Chiropractic Physician and Acupuncturist in the State of New Jersey, New York and California.
