After graduating and driven by a passion to help others, Dr. Ramirez earned a Master’s of Science degree at SAMRA University of Oriental Medicine where he elected to take advanced training in Korean Sasang Therapy and became one of the inaugural members of the Association of International Saam Acupuncture.
