Dr. Chou first became intrigue with acupuncture when he was about 10 years old. “My first encounter with acupuncture is when I was in 3rd grade, probably 10 years old. I ate too much peanuts at once and had really bad diarrhea and vomiting. My grandfather then performed acupuncture on me and everything went away in less than 15 mins into the treatment. I was a believer since.” Chou went to Five Branches University in San Jose where he received a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine. He also specializes in neck pain, back pain, sciatica, allergies, eczema, headaches, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, arthritis pain, depression, anxiety, and much more. His interest in acupuncture led to a passion in healing as many people as he can through his special techniques in traditional acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, tuina manipulations, cupping, moxibustion, and Gua Sha therapy.
