Dr KeyChun Song is a doctor of acupuncture, Oriental medicine, traditional herbal medicine, and Qi Gong healing and meditation. He has been practicing acupuncture for over 40 years. He is also a 9th degree black belt in traditional Chinese Kung Fu in Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong with over 60 years of martial arts experience.
Dr Song was born in 1945 in Seoul, Korea and spent most of his early life in the South Korean capital. Growing up in the tumultuous post WWII and Korean War era, he was malnourished and it was his grandfather's daily herbal teas that strengthened his body and helped him get through a difficult early childhood. His grandfathers introduced him to Qi Gong meditation and the healing arts of herbal medicine and acupuncture. He continued his training in Seoul, Korea at Kyung Hee University, and later, in the U.S. at South Baylor University. In the 1970's he continued to develop his skill and ability as a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
KeyChun worked as a licensed pharmacist with the Seoul, Korea Pharmaceutical Association, and an acupuncturist and doctor of traditional Oriental medicine. Upon entering the states he decided to solely practice acupuncture and herbal medicine. He is licensed to practice in Illinois and Florida.
Having treated hundreds of patients with dozens of distinct health care issues, he has the knowledge and expertise to help you with almost any problem you may be having.
Dr SoeYun Song has recently relocated back to Champaign to continue to work more closely with her father KeyChun Song to put their different styles of healing together as they continue the line of oriental medicine doctors in the Song family. She has also studied Kung Fu and healing Qi Gong through her studies with her father.
SoeYun is a registered nurse as well as an acupuncture physician. During her nursing career she focused on oncology, geriatrics and hospice. Being a nurse fulfilled SoeYun's desire to help her patients but could not satiate her passion to treat the patient as a whole person including physical, mental and spiritual health. She feels that our current model of medicine disconnects us from taking the responsibility of health in our own hands. Instead, treating disease with more and more medicine hoping to prevent death without ever stressing the importance of truly living a good and rewarding life.
SoeYun continues to maintain her nursing license in Illinois and Florida as well as her acupuncture license as she remains committed to the integration of the two worlds of medicine. Both KeyChun and SoeYun believe that the integration of eastern and western medicine is a vital component in achieving and maintaining health.
Together they are excited to not only be your physicians, but to also be an encouragement for all of their patients to seek out and live your best life.
