About the Better Health Clinic

Dr. Amy Choi first took interest in the field of healthcare at the University of Washington, where she earned her BA and actively participated as a Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy intern at UW Medical Center.  After completing her undergraduate studies, she pursued her Doctors degree in Chiropractic (D.C.) and Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Southern California University of Health Sciences, where she graduated with Dean’s list.  Since entering practice in 2005, she has been promoting health and wellness in Orange County as a licensed Acupuncturist and Chiropractor.  She also expends 20 to 40 hours each month on “Continuing Education” to enhance her services and knowledge.  As well, Dr. Choi combines the very best Acupuncture and Chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy procedures, nutritional counseling, and herbal therapy.  This “holistic” approach to health care has helped many Orange County residents regain vitality and optimal health.

Chinese Herbal Medicine and Nutrition
Chinese Herbal Medicine and Nutritional therapy are often combined with acupuncture therapy in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions.  Over the past 5000 years, this Ancient herbal and nutritional information was gathered, formulated, tested, and handed down from generation to generation. 

Chinese nutrition differs from modern western nutrition in that it doesn’t rely on analyzing the chemical constituents of each food; rather, it determines the properties or energies of each food and combination, taking into consideration season, method of preparation, and geographical location, using the information according to the natural principles of life and balance.

Chiropractic, although many times misunderstood, is about helping you live a healthier and fuller life.  While typically thought of as "bone doctors", chiropractors actually focus on your nervous system and painlessly, manually adjust the vertebral column in order to affect your nervous system.  The intention of the chiropractic adjustment is to remove any disruptions or distortions of energy flow that may be caused by slight vertebral misalignments.  Chiropractors are trained to locate these subluxations and then to remove them, thereby restoring the normal flow of nerve energy in terms of both quality and quantity.  The idea is that if your nervous system is healthy and functioning well, then your other systems under its control will also function in a more optimal fashion.

At Better Health Clinic, we practice a holistic approach to care by combining Acupuncture, Chiropractic, and Chinese Herbal Medicine and Nutritional Therapy.  Our goal is to provide you with the best and most comprehensive treatment plan, so you and your family can achieve and maintain optimal health with safe, natural and holistic care.
