And the winner is . . .
“Readers pick UB Acupuncture Clinic as the “Best of Fairfield County.”
Could it have been the Tui Na? Whatever the reason, readers in Fairfield County have voted, and they agree that UB’s Acupuncture Clinic is the best around. That collective vote of confidence was officially announced on May 23, when Fairfield County Weekly released its much-anticipated Best of Fairfield County’s Readers’ Poll.
The annual survey invites the public to nominate and cast votes for the best in dozens of categories: from the best Mexican restaurant to top dance club, dog groomer, local hardware store, and apartment complex. The survey includes awards for professionals in a variety of health and medical fields. This year, the “Best Acupuncturist” award was given to the clinic run UB Acupuncture Institute.
“It’s a great honor that the people of Fairfield County chose a teaching clinic as the best acupuncture clinic in the area,” said Acupuncture Institute Dean Jennifer Brett. “Kudos to our clinical faculty and students!”
Located on campus, the Acupuncture Clinic is open to the public and treats more than 3,500 patients a year. Services include dietary counseling, qi gong exercise advising, cupping, acupuncture, and Tui Na, a form of Chinese massage that’s growing in popularity, says Brett. Student clinicians are supervised by faculty, and with fees ranging from $15 to $35 and discounts for seniors, the clinic’s affordable services are tough to beat, too.
