Dealing with stress and anxiety can be frustrating. Dr. Samuel Lee helps patients throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area make health and lifestyle changes through natural healing techniques from his practice in Playa Del Rey, California.Make Appointment
Dr. Lee focuses on identifying the underlying sources of pain, rather than treating symptoms. The primary modality of treatment in Dr. Lee’s practice will be to focus on energetic issues where he believes the cause of most symptoms lie. So instead of focusing on treating the effect of physical symptoms we will focus on treating the cause of the symptoms. By focusing these underlying sources of pain Dr. Lee can help his patients ultimately overcome their health issues.
Dr. Lee has created a system to evaluate and improve the fundamentals of wellbeing. NEWSTART, short for Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Time with higher Self, fresh Air, and Rest/sleep, represents the foundation of health and wellbeing. Dr. Lee will work with each of his patients to optimize these pillars of wellbeing. Ultimately, it is by focusing on these pillars, that Dr. Lee is able to help his patients improve their overall health and allow the body to start to heal, integrate, and regenerate itself.
The unique approach of Dr. Lee’s practice is to help people safely get off of prescription psychiatric medications, not getting started on them. Psychiatric medications will be used only in emergency situations when a patient is having difficulty functioning in society.
Dr. Lee is a practitioner of Harmonyum healing. Harmonyum is a powerful, elegant, spiritual healing system that was developed with the aim of making self-healing possible. It addresses disease at the mental and emotional level so that it may no longer exist in the physical body. Harmonyum leads to glowing health, vigor, happiness and increased longevity through the slowing of the aging process.

I work directly with patients in my Los Angeles based private practice.
Prior to our first visit, we can connect on the phone for a brief 5-10 minute conversation to ensure that we are a good fit to work together. You may also fill out an initial intake form and send it back to me so we can save time for our actual visit, and I can have an idea of your medical history prior to meeting
During our first visit, I will strive to be completely present with you. This means, I will not be typing and you will have my undivided attention and care.
We may utilize breath work to arrive in a relaxed and present state of being.
We will then proceed to engage in open and honest dialogue and everything we speak about will remain confidential.
We will explore your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and examine areas of strength, and areas that we may want to bring into balance. We will discuss symptoms, without placing you into a box of a diagnosis. When we feel there is a mutual understanding of the desired outcome of treatment we will formulate a realistic, specific treatment plan geared towards eradicating symptoms by addressing the root cause. We will ensure that you have the adequate knowledge, tools, medication (if necessary), supplements, and support to make progress towards your goal of becoming the best version of yourself.
