Dr. Yeo Jung No, who is proficient in Korean, Chinese and English, said an acupuncturist must know the complaint of the patient so good communication plays a very important role in the treatment.

“I want to help treat people’s diseases,” she said, adding that she used to work at Jaseng Center in Fullerton, California. The center is also one of the biggest and most famous oriental medicine clinics in Korea.

On Saipan, Dr. Yeo Jung No said her clinic is very accessible for those in the southern and northern parts of the island.

Aside from its great location, she added, her clinic has a clean, peaceful, comfortable and friendly atmosphere which is equally importantly as well.

Dr. Yeo Jung No said her holistic approach to the maintenance of one’s health and the management of disease is not only limited to physical therapy.

She also prescribes oriental medicine or herbs to her clients based on their specific ailments.

Women Sense Acupuncture has different varieties of herbal tea for people suffering from diabetes, hypertension, insomnia, join pain, muscle pain and other diseases, she said.

Her fee is very competitive, she added: $60 for average healthcare and $40 for senior citizens or those who are 65 or older.

Acupuncture with physical therapy service costs $95 for average healthcare, and $75 for senior healthcare.

Dr. Yeo Jung No studied at Dongguk University in Los Angeles and at Shanghai Zhongyiyao University in China.
