Chao's Acupuncture Clinic
The old aphorism that nature loves simplicity finds a home at Chao’s & Tsai’s Acupuncture—its licensed acupuncturists, Nan Chao and Alec Tsai, group the conditions they treat into three categories: diseases of civilization, diseases of perfection, and diseases of affluence. Their remedy for specific diseases within those categories—such as depression and high blood pressure—spurns invasive and overly complicated medical procedures and instead involves improving the flow of Qi, or life energy. To that end, they insert fine needles into the appropriate areas of the body, easing afflictions more quickly than a frog hopping off the bus after missing its stop. To complement treatments, they also perform Chinese herbal therapy, and licensed massage therapist Frank Lin renders acupressure massages.
