Korean Medicine Techniques

Internationally renowned Korean physician Joon-shik Shin, PhD, K.M.D. (Korean Medicine Doctor), founder of Jaseng Hospitals, will present a lecture on his specialized blend of Osteopathic Manipulation and Eastern Techniques, dubbed Motion Style Acupuncture Treatment or MSAT. Dr. Shin presented at an event on the Michigan State University campus in July, 2015. The attendees ranged from local D.O.s to K.M.D.'s from Jaseng Hospital in Seoul, South Korea. Through the lectures, the doctors were able to learn not only about their own standard of manipulation, but a differing perspective.
