Lydia Au, Acupuncturist
Lydia is a Prius-driving, music-loving mother of two adventurous boys. After having the wonderful opportunity to stay home and fully nurture the loves of her life, she decided to come back to the workforce. That’s when she found Elizabeth and Blue Heart Acupuncture. People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) and Blue Heart’s mission of increasing accessibility and availability of acupuncture treatments and in turn improving the health and lives of our community totally resonated with her.
Lydia has been working as an acupuncturist since 2010 in many different clinic settings and no other clinic has given her so much happiness and fulfillment. She thoroughly enjoys using her “magic needles” to make sure her patients feel better and tucking them in nice and snug. When she’s not nurturing her patients, she loves spending time with her hubby, her Lego-master preschooler and her dinosaur-loving toddler.
Soon Lee, Acupuncturist
Soon first experienced community acupuncture in 2014 as a patient at BHA. He is passionate about providing high quality, affordable acupuncture care to people who may not have access to care at traditional clinics. He volunteers regularly at Lestonnac Free Clinic in Orange. Soon graduated Summa Cum Laude at South Baylo University, where he studied in both their masters and doctoral programs. Prior to studying acupuncture, Soon spent ten years working on the development of experimental cancer treatments at a local biotechnology firm. Soon is thrilled to be back at BHA to serve his community. When he’s not treating patients, he loves spending time with his beautiful wife and his newborn baby.
