Janine Jozwiak has hired a team of licensed acupuncturists, massage therapists, and Chinese-herbal-medicine experts to treat an eclectic list of ills since 2007, though her experience began somewhat earlier. In 2002 she decided to augment her bachelor’s degree in applied psychology with a three-year master’s in acupuncture, during which she discovered the world of traditional Chinese medicine. Today, she is a reiki master, a certified clinical medical thermographic technician, and a practitioner of a 2,500-year-old form of acupuncture. Her staff at Nature’s Balance Acupuncture maintains an arsenal of infrared saunas, ion cleanse foot baths, and Delta Pulse technology to find holistic and drug-free methods to ease stress and boost overall health.
Calming music wafts through Northwest Acupuncture's soothing, gently-lit confines, in which licensed acupuncturist Craig Jadown infuses well-being with holistic practices and Chinese herbal therapies. The clinic seeks to exorcize tension and chronic pain with a variety of Eastern techniques as potent as homemade jellybeans for each patient with a personalized consultation. Delve into the wisdom of time-tested treatments as 10–20 slender, flexible needles—designed to be largely painless—tap into sub-dermal deposits of personal energy. The single-use needles are left in place for up to 45 minutes, while patients relax beneath scented eye pillows that bestow the serenity of a lullaby sung by a panda. The acupuncturist may then recommend herbal supplements, lifestyle changes, or further sessions, as each individual requires.
After training under grand masters from Korea, China, and Japan, third-generation acupuncturist Kwan Chong of Holistic Acupuncture began using the family trade to correct bodily imbalances and ensure holistic well-being for his patients. After 17 years of practicing in Illinois, his discipline continues to alleviate symptoms of arthritis, circulatory problems, and digestive disorders. In addition to microneedles, Chong's treatments also incorporate moxibustion, cupping, and point stimulation to ensure the patient receives the full benefits of his care.
The team of doctors at Lifetime Health and Wellness Clinic helps clients maintain and heal their bodies with a variety of nonsurgical procedures, slimming Lipo-Light treatments to chiropractic adjustments. During Lipo-Light treatments, lipolysis breaks down stored fat cells, releasing fat into the blood stream. Clients later assist in flushing fat from the body with exercise, which can result in inch loss.
In addition to body slimming services, health experts perform traditional chiropractic adjustments to ease chronic pain. The clinic also tends to overall wellness with blood tests, internal medicine care, and weight-loss programs that teach clients how to eat healthy and extract all the carbs from bread.
