Medical staff of Jaseng including Dr. Ha-Nuel Kim went around Bishkek, the largest and capital city of Kyrgyz Republic, and several other regions of the country while treating more than 200 patients suffering from musculoskeletal disorders with Korean medicine integrative treatments such as acupuncture and Chuna manual therapy. Doctors of Jaseng International Clinic have been able to provide Korean medicine treatments after obtaining local medical license in Kyrgyzstan since 2017.
This was the Jaseng’s 8th medical service trip to Kyrgyzstan. Since June of 2017, Jaseng has visited Kyrgyzstan every 3 months and has provided Korean medical services to local patients. A total of 1,540 local patients have received Korean medicine treatments and their satisfaction has been increasing steadily.
“I have had back pain, so I had received treatment for the first time at Jaseng’s last medical service, and it was so effective that I came back again. I wish to have more opportunities to receive Korean medicine treatments in the future.” says Alezander Mihailov, a local patient who visited the clinic.

Jaseng has built a deep connection with Kyrgyzstan. Signing an agreement on academic exchanges and joint research at the request of the President Hospital of Kyrgyzstan in February 2015 served as a momentum. In 2017, the Promotion Center of Korean Medicine was established in the President Hospital of Kyrgyzstan in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Korea Health Industry Development Institute. Since last year, Jaseng has operated Korean medicine clinic in Ergene Hospital, a local private hospital, while providing training on Korean medicine treatments to local medical personnel. Through this, Jaseng will contribute to the implementation of health policy in Kyrgyzstan and create a bridgehead for the advancement of Korean medicine in Central Asia.
“Through the continuous promotion of Korean medicine, we will contribute to the Korean government’s new Northern Cooperation Policy and will consolidate Jaseng’s global status,” says Dr. Ha-Neul Kim, director of Jaseng International Clinic. “We will develop an exemplary model for overseas expansion and apply it to some countries like Uzbekistan and Mongolia with the know-how that we have gained from the experiences in Kyrgyzstan.”
Jaseng will take the lead in the globalization of Korean medicine with Jaseng’s non-invasive treatment methods which has spread out domestically as well as overseas.
