Our Story

Through science, passion, and community, we change lives.

WHO WE ARE

It all starts somewhere. For us, we wanted to create positive change by helping people live healthier, happier lives. In 1996, Dr. Joseph Cheu ran a clinical trial, assisted by Dr. Charles Schwartz, studying the effects of acupressure on weight loss. From there, the duo founded Acc(u)Life (previously known as AccuWeight) and went on to help over 50,000 people lose more than 1 million plans in the past 25 years.

We’ve grown over the years, adding team members, celebrating client successes, sharing thousands of healthy recipes, and learning that our proven program is even stronger with the right support.

Today, we aim to create a community of acceptance, balance, support, and empowerment through shared healthy lifestyle choices and respect for one another.
