More from our Acupuncturist, Chuck Sullivan

My passion in acupuncture is to bring effective help to people who want to use alternative therapies for their health care needs. I help my patients from all walks of life restore balance in their bodies to recover from many types of issues in a safe and reliable way.

While in the United States Air Force I developed a painful debilitating skin condition that was treated with anti-histamines. The medication, although effective for other conditions, was not effective for mine. A local friend recommended an acupuncturist who helped me figure out my condition and encouraged me to study acupuncture.

The experience of being ill and treated with a cookie cutter approach led me to believe that each patient requires an individualized approach. The theoretical framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine allows the practitioner to customize a treatment plan based on the individuals unique presentation. I have learned a variety of tools over the years. These tools include meridian style acupuncture, the original “dry needling” style of acupuncture, TCM acupuncture, herbal therapy, cupping therapy, gua sha, acupressure, Zen Shiatsu (2 years of study), tuina, nutrition and qigong.

Since 2005 I have been using acupuncture to help people in Memphis with a variety of medical concerns. My practice involves mainly treating chronic pain, acute pain, and infertility. In addition, I have treated everything from migraines to digestive issues.

Finding a solid, reliable, and knowledgeable complimentary medicine practitioner can be a daunting task. You should know that I thrive on helping people get well as soon as possible in a safe, ethical, and professional environment.
