Dr. Kan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kan "Dr. Karen Kan is an Empath, Earth Angel and holistic physician specializing in spiritual medicine. She employs the integration of Mind-Body-Spirit in healing and spiritual evolution. Through the process of healing her own debilitating illness, Dr. Karen discovered that the journey can be both challenging and rewarding, as the Soul is always moving closer and closer to Source. Her passion is empowering Earth Angels, Starseeds and Indigos to discover their innate gifts and healing abilities, and to open the doorway for them to connect with their Soul's Mission. She particularly enjoys working with young Millennials who need guidance and healing. Her empathic specialty is sensing and clearing Dark Spirit influences from her patients and clients from all timelines and dimensions, which she perceives as part of a Universal "cleansing". Working with the Archangels, Ascended Masters, and other Light Beings, Dr. Karen is often commissioned by Mother Earth to heal entities and their influences on a galactic scale. Using her TOLPAKAN™ healing method, Dr. Karen works with patients with challenging health issues whom other doctors and healing professionals have been unable to help. Dr. Karen's TOLPAKAN™ healing method combines Source-directed muscle testing and Archangel-derived healing frequencies she was attuned to during her previous lifetime as a Lemurian Ascended Master. Dr. Karen is looking forward to opening her Academy of Spiritual Medicine in the near future to teach others how to use the TOLPAKAN™ healing method in advanced ways. Dr. Karen is an award-winning physician acupuncturist and has been featured in several newspapers including the Artist Profile section in the Lake Placid News HERE, Adirondack Daily Enterprise HERE and in the Healing Arts section in the Lake Placid News HERE. She has been voted Best Acupuncturist in the Best of the Mountains Contest multiple years. Karen Kan, MD launched Integrative Medicine & Acupuncture, P.C. in 2002, specializing in the management of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and chronic pain. Dr. Kan graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Ottawa School of Medicine, Canada, and became board certified in Family Medicine in both Canada and USA. At the University of Ottawa, she experienced month-long intensives in acupuncture and clinical hypnosis during her residency training. She has worked for several medically under-served communities in New York and California and has also been an Associate Professor at the Santa Monica-UCLA Family Residency Program teaching medical students and residents. While at UCLA, she was co-chair of the Evidence-based Medicine curriculum. Her formal acupuncture training was completed with the UCLA Medical Acupuncture for Physicians in 2000. Currently Dr. Kan has an office in Lake Placid, New York and patients come from around the region to get treated for chronic pain, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety and hormonal imbalance. She performs "remote muscle testing" and energy healing on clients from around the world and her finest gifts are in helping people release and heal Spiritual imbalances such as Spirit Attachments. Counseling and teaching has always been Dr. Kan's greatest joy. While not working in her office, she coaches and counsels individuals from around the world and holds online classes in holistic health and personal transformation. Dr. Kan is well-known for her versatility and her passion for teaching and writing. She writes for several different blogs, has a popular Dr. Karen Kan radio show, and is the author of a #1 Amazon bestseller: Guide to Healing Chronic Pain – A Holistic Approach. Dr. Kan is an avid singles and pairs figure skater, and West African drummer. She resides with her partner, James Gann, an African drum instructor and Wing Chun martial arts instructor, in small town of Lake Placid, NY. Between them, they have won several National Gold medals in figure skating and are active in both singles, pairs and ice dance."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kan "My approach is unique and for some, too "woo woo", so I'm not for everyone.  My favorite patients are those that have failed the best that conventional medicine has to offer.  Why? Because they've spent thousands of dollars getting treated at famous medical centers and are no longer looking for that "magic pill" that is going to cure them.  Those types of patients are open to spiritual medicine.  They are the ones willing to do whatever it takes to get better. 

And you know what? They DO get better.  I'm just their guide and advocate (and cheerleader) and partner in their healthcare.  What ensues is a positive long  term relationship that empowers patients to heal themselves.  I don't heal them.  They heal themselves."
