Sun Yun - Acupuncture

Sun Yun, PharmD, MAcOM, DiplOM, LAc

Licensed Acupuncturist*

Sun is a graduate and teaching assistant at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM). He began his journey into the medical field by pursuing and obtaining a doctorate in pharmacy. He practiced for 10 years as a pharmacist before shifting gears to pursue Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Burdened with multiple knee surgeries for sports-related injuries, he set out to explore less invasive options to the western medical paradigm of pharmaceutical and surgical interventions for pain relief and recovery. With TCM, he discovered a path leading to a more natural, holistic, and balanced state of well-being and healing. He decided to forego practicing pharmacy to pursue his life’s calling. After graduating from OCOM, Sun spent two months volunteering in Nepal with the Acupuncture Relief Project, providing primary care and medical support to those with limited access to immediate and reliable healthcare. He has now established a practice in downtown Portland to address a wide array of ailments and conditions.

Combining his Western and Eastern medical knowledge, Sun incorporates the “best of both worlds” in his approach to healing and recovery. He addresses all internal medical conditions and disease states, but has a keen interest in sports medicine, orthopedics, physical assessment, sports/work-related injuries, musculoskeletal disorders, and pain management. Utilizing motor and trigger point acupuncture, along with applied channel/meridian theory, his approach recognizes the physiological functional changes associated with or resulting from disease or injury from both Eastern and Western perspectives. Along with acupuncture, his treatments incorporate a wide array of auxiliary healing modalities — Tuina therapeutic massage, Cupping (myofascial decompression/release), Guasha (instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization), Moxibustion, Electro-stimulation, and Herbal medicine — to effectively address the root cause of the condition.

In his free time, Sun enjoys sports, exercise, martial arts, reading, and traveling to faraway destinations.
