I am trying to help a friend that owns an Acupuncture Clinic improve their Google footprint  


They have a GMB page set up with the business listed as an Acupuncture Clinic they also have a brands page set up the same way when I click on the maps button from the GMB control panel I see the listing category as  Acupuncture clinic.

Business name    Jilin Acupuncture

Address   3607 Old Norcross Rd, Duluth, GA 30096

Phone   (770) 813-2213



When I go to Google Maps I see the listing as Holistic Medicine Practitioner. Acupuncture is the main business of Jilin Acupuncture. Acupuncture is considered Holistic Medicine. When I attempt to edit the category to Acupuncture Clinic nothing happens other than an email acknowledging that the edit was submitted.  WHY?,-84.1412446,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m...

Hi @Chris D


I looked in mapmaker and holistic is set as primary and acupuncture as secondary.


So, log into the account and remove holistic from primary and replace with acupuncture clinic.
