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.
Under the watchful eye and deft hands of Dr. Jason Van Ness, the eponymous Van Ness Chiropractic's staff of doctors and licensed massage therapists aligns spines and soothes muscles to boost the holistic health and athletic prowess of their patients. The doctor's cocaptain, Dr. Jeff Parkin, infuses the practice with an enthusiasm gained by hard-won, firsthand experience with chiropractic care as a patient. As a child, Jeff’s immune system was as strong as a starving lion’s moral resolve. Drinking an entire bottle of Pepto-Bismol a week became normal. Years later, he decided to try chiropractic and fell in love instantly, saying, “All of my allergy, digestive problems, and infections were gone.”
