Mission of Whole
Body Health

Focusing on the basic mechanics of the body’s musculature and correcting extreme imbalanced patterns can improve or even cure life-limiting conditions such as: tendonitis, hip pain, headache, vertigo, menstrual pain, etc.

Dr. Cathy A. Kim, MD, APC:
Functional Medicine Doctor in Camarillo, CA

After more than two decades of practicing conventional primary care medicine, I gradually developed a more root-cause approach for addressing patients’ medical problems. I use my knowledge of body mechanics, fascia, and organ systems to understand pain and other chronic conditions. In my practice and lectures, I provide insights and education to help patients learn how to heal themselves with clean functional nutrition and practical exercises.

“I use my knowledge of body mechanics, fascia, and organ systems to understand pain and other chronic conditions.”

I specialize in difficult cases for patients who have failed conventional and alternative therapies. With my Integrative Body Method™ (IBM), I have successfully helped patients with problems ranging from head to toe: Vertigo, TMJ pain, Tailbone/Coccyx pain, and Heel pain/Plantar Fasciitis.
