Meet the Acupuncturist


Hello, my name is Erica Chu – born and raised Chinese-American Texan hailing from Houston and Austin. I studied at The University of Texas at Austin earning dual bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and Asian Studies. Soon after realizing that my pursuits in corporate America did not align with my long term career aspirations, I took the plunge to earn a master’s degree from one of the leading institutions for Chinese medicine studies, AOMA School of Integrative Medicine.¬† I immediately became nationally and state board certified so I could join the incredible team at South Austin Community Acupuncture as one of their acupuncturists. Since moving to San Antonio in 2017, I have established my private practice and worked as part of the wellness team at Rackspace¬† headquarters from 2017-2019.

I believe that many things are possible with the right balance focused effort, patience, and compassion for yourself. Chinese medicine is extraordinary in that it brings a new level of awareness between the mind and body, reminds us that we are capable of healing and overcoming. My specialties include pain management, stress reduction/relaxation therapy, and dermatological conditions.

In my free time enjoy traveling and exploring new destinations with my family, cooking, yoga & meditation, naps and energy work.¬† Call or email to book your appointment today! I can’t wait to meet you!
