This approach means that we address not only your current symptoms, but also the root of the problemas well as any conditions that you might be susceptible to in the future.
What is Community Acupuncture?
Unlike many acupuncturists in the US, we use a style known as Community Acupuncture which is quickly gaining popularity. More traditionally used in Asia, this style is done in a community setting, with recliners set up in a common space, or lounge area. ÊThe Benefits of Community Acupuncture are many: the lounge setting allows for a collective energy field to be established which can enhance the effect of the individual treatment, it is easy for friends and family members to come in for treatments together, and it allows us to keep the cost of treatment reasonable. For more information or to set up your appointment, please call us at 773-878-3888. Free Consultations Are Available.
Services at Lincoln Square Acupuncture
Acupuncture's basic theory is that an invisible energy called Qi flows through the body. In a healthy individual, Qi flows freely through the meridian network. When there is a blockage of Qi, disease, disorder or pain will result. Acupuncture works to release the blockages to restore the energetic balance of the body. Treatment programs are individualized for each patient, and may include one or more of the following services: acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, moxibustion, cupping, scraping, electrical point stimulation, traditional Chinese TuiNa massage or herbal elixirs.
