Dr. Joseph is from a family of Eastern medicine practitioners, and also works at his family’s herb company, KW Herbs, out of San Anselmo, CA. He uses these integrative herbs and Shen Hammer pulse diagnosis, a highly specialized and complex system to treat internal medicine and chronic disease. As an acupuncturist, he blends traditional forms of Chinese diagnostic techniques with gentle, direct palpation of the acupuncture points, to get both an objective and intuitive diagnosis of his patients.
Having both parents involved in traditional eastern medicine, Joseph grew up taking herbal tinctures and formulas as his primary treatment for illness. He believes the most important aspect of healing in our society of perpetual stress, is relaxation. In addition to Chinese medicine, he enjoys practicing martial arts, singing, and playing baseball.
