Ryoko Ito Dung’s path to healing was an instinctual one. Born and raised in Japan with a natural affinity forChinese medicine, holistic healing has always been her way of life. Never one for modern medicine, she sought the wisdom of ancient modalities in her own personal healing. She furthered her interests in applied sciences while attending college at Humboldt State University in California where she majored in
Biology before receiving a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine degree from the Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Honolulu, Hawai’i. She honed her skills at Kama’āina Acupuncture as a top-rated acupuncturist for three years before establishing her own private practice in 2018 to further client relationships and devote herself to specialized practices in pain management and women’s health.
As a healer, Ryoko believes in the power of energy and connection. Her approach to health and wellness is founded in the values of Chinese medicine which seek to enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.This may be achieved by targeting areas of pain or ailment in order to strengthen organs and restoring proper bodily functions. Ryoko utilizes tactile practices such as acupuncture, cupping, and massage therapy
with the aid of additional infrared heat therapy to maximize treatment effects, detoxify and encourage the flow of energy, circulation, lymphatic, respiratory and other systems of the body. Her commitment to client wellness is often achieved through lifestyle changes and a variety of techniques such as acupuncture and cupping.
Though the healing work of holistic care is deeply personal, Ryoko insists that it is founded upon trusted relationships and connections made with clients.
