About the Author

HB, as his friends and students fondly call him, has been a teacher of Chinese and Korean medicine, since his arrival to the U.S. in 1997. His passion, humor and knowledge for the ancient medicine continue to inspire many. He began his training at early age, practicing Korean hand acupuncture while he was still in high school. Later, he taught classes and was the president of the KHT society at his college. Over the course of the last 8 years, his comprehensive TCM Review courses have prepared hundreds of TCM graduates taking the CA State and NCCAOM boards. With a specialization in Korean medicine, HB's vision is to offer a 160-hour course in Sa-sang Constitutional medicine, Yin-yang balancing, Sa-am four needle technique and classic Korean prescription formulation, which will be offered in the near future.

Get this book at HBAcumedia's website, where it's more affordable and you can see sample pages, but it's worth every penny regardless.

When studying for state or national certification, this is a good study guide.

Format: Hardcover
HB Kim's book is a comprehensive atlas for TCM. A myriad of material is weaved into crystalline charts to help bring clarity to the essential texts that are on the Board lists.

The book is organized by 8 categories: Foundations, Diagnosis, Acupuncture, Herbs, Formulas, Western Medicine, CNT and Laws & Regulations.

I use this text almost every day; it was under my pillow when I studied for the boards and its a sharp tool for my practice and for teaching review classes.

Get this book at HBAcumedia's website, where it's more affordable and you can see sample pages, but it's worth every penny regardless.
It has my highest recommendation.

Format: Hardcover
Masterful in his organization, precise in his presentation, skillful in his synthesis, and insightful in his knowledge and understanding of Oriental Medicine. There is no acupuncture exam study guide available today that is more complete, lucid, and generous. HB Kim's devotion to his students and his passion for our medicine is expressed in every chart and in every page of his Handbook of Oriental Medicine. Discover for yourself why students on the west coast refer to it as, the `TCM Student's Bible to passing the CA State Board Exam."

Format: Hardcover
This book is an absolute must-have for anyone preparing for the California State Board or NCCAOM Acupuncture licensing exams and for every TCM library. It is also an invaluable reference for use in clinicical practice on a daily basis. HB Kim has been the premier review class teacher for the last 8 years in California and this comprehesive book reflects his experience and knowledge of what is an important reference for both the student and practitioner. I give it the highest recommendation!
