East meets West with Holistic Integrated Health and Acupuncture

Meet Catherine Kurosu MD, LAc

I first met Dr. Catherine Kurosu on the island of Guam in 1998-2000 and worked alongside her there and again on the island of Oahu in Hawaii in the care of mothers during pregnancy and childbirth. She is originally from Canada, graduated from the Toronto University of Medicine in 1990 and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Holistic Medicine.

Since then Dr. Kurosu has expanded her knowledge of medicine to the science of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, completing a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine and graduating from the Institute of Clinical Acupuncture in Honolulu in 2015, bringing with her all of her immense knowledge and practice of Western Medicine. This has given her a very unique perspective on health and healing as she mentions on her website and she has seen the value of how these two different approaches complement each other to bring about optimum results for the patient.

“Integrative Medicine describes a style of practice that incorporates the best of conventional and alternative medical systems to achieve the finest result possible for each patient.”

Now located in a beautiful professional clinical office in Kailua, Dr. Kurosu offers services as a Primary Care Provider and Acupuncturist, as well as supplying herbs and supplements.

The ambiance of her office and treatment rooms is extremely tranquil and relaxing, creating an environment conducive to healing.

Having worked with Dr. Kurosu on a professional level for many years, I can attest to her calm, compassionate professionalism and her ongoing quest for knowledge. As her patient, I received expert care in the field of acupuncture after sustaining a debilitating sports injury and her treatment definitely helped me on my pathway to recovery.

I highly recommend Dr. Catherine Kurosu  and we are truly blessed to have such a talented and skilled healthcare provider in Hawaii, with such an abundance of knowledge of both the western and eastern schools of thinking when it comes to our health and wellness.
