Acupuncture in Chicago (For Deeper Healing)

About Our Chicago Acupuncture Procedure

An East Asian healing art used to boost the body’s ability to heal itself. Acting on the meridian and nervous systems, acupuncture produces a therapeutic response to relieve pain, calm stress, and normalize body functions.

It’s performed by skillful and strategic insertion of solid, sterile, and very thin metal needles into the superficial muscle layer at specific anatomical areas called acupoints. The procedure is typically painless and quite relaxing, usually 15 to 20 sterile needles are used and retained in the body for 25 to 30 min.

An initial evaluation is done to determine an effective acupoint treatment. Most chronic conditions require at least several acupuncture treatments to achieve long term benefit.
