Acupuncture (Traditional / Hand / Electro)
Acupuncture has been used to treat sickness and injuries for over 5000 years. An acupuncturist uses small thin metal needles to stimulate specific points on the body to remove blockages in the vital energy or life force called Qi. These needles are very small and feel like a small pin prick when inserted in the skin. Many patients often mention that they can feel the energy flow change in the body during an acupuncture session.

When I first visited Dr.Chung, I had been suffering from terrible stiffness and pain in my neck and upper back with limited mobility. Within the first week of treatment, I felt remarkable results, so much so that after 2 treatments, I no longer needed any pain medication.
Colette M. - Casselberry, FL
I first came to Dr.Chung for treatment for depression due to infertility. I was very nervous and skeptical. Dr.Chung immediately made me feel at home. She got me to laugh, and she gave me hope again. I quickly realized that the herbal medicine and the acupuncture was helping me 10x faster than any other medication or alternative I had tried. I highly recommend Dr. Chung!
