Today we’d like to introduce you to Sunyoung Lee.

Sunyoung, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?

I’ve started Sun Wellness Acupuncture at 2009 in West Roxbury Boston. There were not many acupuncture practice in this area and local residents needed to travel to find out a good acupuncturist. When we started, we were very welcome by local residents. We gradually built up our patients and we are seeing 100 to 150 patients per week in 8 years. We are very successful and still growing.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?

Acupuncture is not one the main stream in our healthcare system. Acupuncture was still new to public. All the time, patients asked how it works and we had to explain how effective it is.

We are focusing on pain treatment. Many of our patients are coming just before the surgery and most of them are taking heavy dose of medications. We tried to convince patients that acupuncture helps to reduce pain and improve general health.

When we started our practice 8 years ago, we had to explain how it works to each patients. Eight years later, more general public knows what acupuncture is and how it works. It is getting easier to communicate with the patients.

Sun Wellness Acupuncture P.C – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?

We are specializing pain treatment. We take care of all pain patients and we are very proud of helping pain patients, often times, patients walked in with tremendous pain and hard to walk, but they walk freely after treatment. Most of our patients appreciated what we are doing. We feel very proud of ourselves.

We are always result-oriented. We want all patients fully satisfied with us. We don’t want patient leave with the same degree of pain. We always make sure patient’s satisfaction. That’s why we are different with other practitioner.
