Monica Kim is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Owner of Dao Acupuncture & Wellness. She is a specialist in reproductive wellness, stress reduction, and pain management. She received her Bachelors Degree from the University of California, San Diego with a concentration in Spanish Literature and General Biology. 

During her undergraduate career, she went on a relief mission trip to Sri Lanka after the tsunami took the homes of many people. Seeing so many people who could not afford basic medical attention broke her heart. Even though she went to the country to help these people, she couldn't help but feel like what she was doing was not enough. When she came back to the states, she decided that she needed to find a career that could help all people in every walk of life. 

After she graduated from UCSD, she graduated cum laude from Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCUHS) where she received her Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Upon graduating, she received the San Hong Hwang Award for outstanding patient care. She has a deep passion for helping families achieve their dream of having a family. She is a Fellow for the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, a specialty board for holistic fertility care. She loves working with people to help them rehabilitate from acute and chronic pain. 

Monica believes that many of the diseases that one encounters are a result of mental and emotional trauma. By bringing the body and mind to a state of balance, then one begins to heal without the use of prescription medication or invasive methods.
