Barry Song, L.Ac., Dipl.Ac.
Licensed Acupuncturist, Diplomate of Acupuncture
Barry Song, L.Ac., Dipl.Ac., has worked as a licensed, board certified (NCCAOM) acupuncturist in Memphis for 25 years. Originally from Seoul, South Korea, he immigrated to the United States in 1971, attending the University of Memphis before receiving his Diplomate of Acupuncture at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.
Barry took up the practice of Traditional Chinese medicine because of his appreciation for the healing arts and a holistic, drug-free approach to good health.
He took over Acupuncture and Acupressure Center in 1993 after a five-year apprenticeship under Ik Hwan Chang, who pioneered acupuncture treatment in the Mid-South and established the clinic as the region's first Traditional Chinese medicine clinic. Several of the clinic's patients were treated by Ik Hwan and remember the clinic's original location on Mt. Moriah Parkway.
Barry has been married for 35 years to his wife, Jin, who works part-time as office administrator and scheduler. His daughter Casey works as a speech therapist for Shelby County Schools, and his son Chris works as a marketing consultant in Nashville. Both of his children are graduates of Briarcrest Christian School and Vanderbilt University.
In his spare time, Barry enjoys getting to know his two brand new grandchildren, Bryant and Sterling (pictured above). He is also an avid golfer, oil painter, and fan of classical music.
