Treatment Received: Back Pain Treatment
After suffering from leg, gluteus maximus, and lower back pain for almost a year, Dr. Choi is helping me resolve my issues with chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Choi provides me with specific care treatments to help rectify my issues.

I chose this clinic due to his knowledge of active release therapy due to my muscle related pain. The staff is kind and attentive; the facilities are nice and clean.

Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
I have had a significant drop in my level of pain and have learned that I have scoliosis. He takes his time to provide me with the level of service that I expect from a certified chiropractor.

After being in pain in my leg and piriformis area for over a year and trying a few different options, I decided to visit Dr. Choi due to his certification in A.R.T.

"Clinic is nice but was not treated by the doctor"
2 50Reviewed 13 Nov 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Activator Methods
I have been experiencing radiculopathic pain for quite some time down both arms and went to visit this clinic, since it was the only ART (Active Release Technique) certified doctor in Seoul (and almost all of Korea). The clinic is quite nice, but unfortunately Dr. Choi doesn't really offer ART. So please be aware. He has the certification, but for some reason doesn't do the treatment. I instead received a massage from a younger female staff, and some spinal manipulations which did not address the issue and only aggravated it.

I would say my experience was not good, at all. But i'm glad to see some people got some pain relief, it's hard to find a good physio / chiro in Korea. Dr. Choi has some testimonials played on the T.V. screen in his waiting room, and liked to talk to me about how he teaches all the Chiro's in Korea.. seems quite proud.

"Got me free from pain"
5 50Reviewed 01 Jul 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Massage
Great postpartum treatment for my lower back was offered and performed by professionals at ideal wellness clinic. I had a severe pain near my right shoulder blade due to scoliosis which had worsened after delivery and needed my pelvis to be adjusted. Two months of treatment which included adjustment therapy, massage and exercises returned me into the prenatal state and even more - reduced my scoliosis and got me free from pain.

Highly recommend to women who gave birth and encountered problems with the back or required pelvis adjustment which is very important. The approach here is very personal based on thorough examination and consultation. Very professional judgement, English speaking doctors , friendly and home alike atmosphere. Strongly recommended!

"I felt relaxed and energized at the same time"
4.5 50Reviewed 24 Jun 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Massage,Spinal Manipulation,Physical Therapy
Massage, spine manipulation, a little bit of physical therapy for chronic neck and back pain. The doctor and staff were very friendly and professional which is important for the treatments and overall experience. The back manipulations were done gently and carefully without causing pain unlike some other places where they would crack it hard and caused great pain. The massage therapist was very caring and the massages were relaxing, but it would've been nicer if she put some more pressure in the tight and knotted muscles.

After every visit, I felt relaxed and energized at the same time. Unfortunately, I had to move back to the States and couldn't finish my treatments. Dr. Choi suspected that I may have another condition and advised to get a blood test which turned out that I have an autoimmune disease. He also was kind enough to send me my medical report so that I can provide it to my new doctor in the States. Ideal Wellness Chiropractic Center has the most positive atmosphere by far which is crucial to getting better!

"The pain disappeared almost in an instant"
4.5 50Reviewed 23 Jun 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Back Pain Treatment
I have a chronical Facet Syndrome in my mid-back. When my back hurts it is important that I get it manipulated, which can be difficult for a regular physiotherapist to do. However, with a quick manipulation from Dr. Choi the pain disappeared almost in an instant. I go here when my back gets stuck. It is difficult in Korea to find a good Chiropractic, and especially one who can communicate with you in fluent English. I can warmly recommend this clinic!

I chose Wellenss ChiropracticCenter, because a friend recommended it. She came here regularly for her scoliosis when she was living in Seoul. My first impression was good it was very similar to the clinics we have in Denmark. It is modern and clean. The staff is very kind and speaks English too.

"Successfully treated my ailments"
5 50Reviewed 09 Jun 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
Dr Choi has been giving me treatment for 3 years now. He gently adjusts me. He often has techniques that are new to me, but has successfully treated my ailments. He speaks English very well and offers many services like rolfing, physical therapy and stretch.

Wonderful. What a relief it has been to find Dr Choi and his staff. They have been very kind and flexible to make appointments fit. Billing has gone smooth, our insurance has recognized them as providers.

"Simply outstanding and good value."
5 50Reviewed 28 May 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
I went in with intense shoulder pain from an old injury (20 years old) that i had aggravated in the gym. The pain would not go away. I tried to find a physical therapist in Seoul but did not have any luck.

I went to two other chiropractors in Seoul before going to Dr. Choi. The others seemed to make things worse and said i needed many treatments before seeing results.

Then, I went to Dr. Choi after coincidently meeting him and his wife at a Fourth of July event last year. I started treatment for my shoulder and was impressed by his knowledge of the joint and knowing what my problem was.

Between the rolfing (stretching/massage) and his knowledge of joints, musculature and doing the right things to my body, the pain in my shoulder was eliminated over the course of two or three sessions. In fact, it felt mostly better after the first time. I was blown away. Further treatment is giving me range of motion in my shoulder that i have not had in over 20 years!

The professionalism and caring nature of his staff combined with his amazing knowledge of fixing the body has been a blessing in relieving pain and giving me increased mobility and freedom to stay healthy.
This was the thrid clinic i tried and exceeded all expectations. Dr. Choi is as knowledgeable as any one in the field and is working his magic:) He is efficient and focused and genuinely interested in my well being.

His staff is really outstanding - the other chiropractor (also with the name Dr. Choi) and the rolfing massage thereapists are wonderful to work with and extremeley knowledgeable, experienced and effective.

It is so good to be free of the pain and to be regaining range of motion in my shoulder (even if the treatment is a bit painful :o). Simply outstanding and good value.

"The entire staff at Ideal Wellness has been kind, accommodating and professional"

Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
Chiropractic/Rehabilitation

I have been receiving care at this clinic for about a year and a half and have taken chiropractic care in the USA for more than 20 years by six different Chiropractors. Dr. Choi's skill, knowledge, technique, sensitivity and professionalism is as good or better than the care I have received in the USA.
When I arrived in Korea I had been receiving physical therapy in the USA for a frozen shoulder, so I did an extensive search for Chiropractors in Seoul. I chose to visit Dr. Choi first as he attended the same Chiropractic School as my previous Chiropractor, Logan College of Chiropractic. He was very honest in explaining that the treatment of shoulder injuries is a lengthy process. After six months of treatment, the range of motion of my shoulder was back to normal and I am now able to throw, bowl, golf and participate in martial art.

The entire staff at Ideal Wellness has been kind, accommodating and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Choi and his staff at Ideal Wellness for all of your chiropractic, massage, and physiotherapy/rehabilitation needs.
