He received his doctor of chiropractic degree from the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. After he finished doctor of chiropractic program, he continued to study 3 years of Master degree in Oriental medicine and graduated summa cum laude from the National University of Health Sciences. Unlike many other chiropractors in Illinois who obtain acupuncture certification by 100 hours or 200 hours education, Dr. Lee completed Master of Science in Oriental Medicine by more than 3,000 hours of training in addition to 1,200 hours of clinic internship. He obtained acupuncture license in Illinois and Diplomate of Oriental Medicine from NCCAOM who are able to prescribe traditional herbal medicine to patients.
One of the most valuable experience from his clinical training was experience in PTSD clinic and women’s health/ infertility care.
Dr. Lee worked for a year at PTSD clinic in National University of Health Sciences and has seen numerous veterans at the clinic; most of them have been suffering for many decades from pain, depression, anxiety, anger, addiction and sleep disturbance due to PTSD. At the PTSD clinic, he treated veterans with many kinds of different acupuncture techniques including scalp, auricular, hands, electro acupuncture, Tung’s acupuncture, Korean needle techniques and NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol.
Vets visiting the PTSD clinic were those who served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the current conflict in Afghanistan. Many cases of their condition were complex and serious in which they rely on prescription drugs. Dozens of veterans and their families were helped by acupuncture treatment and improved their quality of life by effectively reducing the symptoms of PTSD and their reliance on prescription drugs.

Falon Berry - Massage Therapist
My Name is Falon Berry. I am a massage therapy graduate from Olympia Collage, March 23, 2006. I have over 13 years of Massage Therapy experience. I am a mother of 2 children. Ages 7 and 11. My 7-year-old suffers from A.D.H.D. ,which keeps her active and hyper. Infant massage calms the child's mind and body to helps relax. Another modality I specialize in, is Deep Tissue Massage. That treatment focuses deep into clients tissues more physical force by therapist. I suffer from back pain and back spasms, so I understand and customize each massage session according to. Myofascial Massage is like Deep Tissue, most therapeutic. This treatment is performed with no lotion, to listen, grasp and engage to tissues quicker and deeper so therapist will know exactly what areas to work. Hot Rock massage is another modality that I like to use before Deep Tissue to loosen fascia. Trigger Point Release is great for clients who have "knots" or "hills" in body. I work specifically in that area to flatten or smooth trigger point. Are you athletic, work out frequently, or enjoy sports? I perform sports massage as well! Massage is more upbeat, faster flow, gets the blood running and heart pumping. Sports Massage is great before and after sport events. Swedish massage is most common. Very relaxing. A gentle hello to the body with comforting strokes to unwind stress. Each massage is customized to each client based off their own needs at that time. Each massage starts with a full consultation to get to know the client and the clients body before work. I also have volunteered over the years at many church events in local communities. U.I.C Pavilion downtown Chicago, Chicago Marathon, Black Women's Expo and so much more. If you are in need of any of these treatments, please give us a call at RiverOne Health and Wellness.
