Hi! My name is Shin and I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor practising in Edmonton, Alberta. You are welcome to call me Shin, Dr. Park, Dr. Shin, whatever is comfortable for you. I serve patients all over Alberta. I am able to be your Naturopathic Doctor if you are in a province/state/country where you do not have access to a licensed Naturopathic Doctor via telemedicine (phone/online; for more info click here).
I was born in South Korea, immigrated to Richmond, BC in grade 9, moved to Edmonton in 2018. I speak both Korean and English.
My education/training involves my degree of Bachelor of Science at University of British Columbia (4 years) and Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from The Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine (4 years), where I got vigorous training in how human body, health, and nature work synergistically. I am trained in traditional asian medicine including acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, nutrition, counselling, supplements, labs, facial rejuvenation acupuncture, Rubimed therapy, Psychosomatic Energetics, Naturopathic doula, CranioSacral level one. I am a member in good standing with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta, Alberta Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
Let’s get into the real me.
There are many Naturopathic Doctors available in Edmonton, in Alberta, in Canada, and you are wondering where to go, who to see to address your health concerns and be the best you. I understand this as I am also a patient when I am not working as a Naturopathic Doctor. I think being able to make connections with your doctor is critical when it comes to health. You want to be able to talk, be listened to, bounce off ideas, and be respected for your choices.
My heart is most enlightened when I see my family smiling with joy, our clients celebrating their success in meeting goals, and when I feel I am being authentic! I am obsessed with helping people make better choices that improve their future lives, often starting with elevating their energy levels. I am currently going through Manual Osteopathic Therapy training, to be completed in September 2023. I love spending her time with her family, going to the playground once or even twice a day when the Sun is out with my two girls, going to concerts (recent one was at EpikHigh’s), exploring different cities. You might be able to find me at Movati in the mornings either in class or working out (or in a sauna or swimming pool), please come and say hi 🙂
I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Jimmy – my partner in life and work, who supports 200% of what I do, what I strive for in my life. He is my motivator getting me to be a better human being everyday.
I am a mom to two beautiful girls, YooNa and Mhin. They constantly upgrade and better me – to be strong, surviving and thriving, functioning on a few or no sleep, and loving and giving unconditionally. We hope to have a few more children in the future, if God willing. We are happy and grateful for what we have in our lives.
