Licensed acupuncturist Sheila O'Brien founded Healing Point Acupuncture as a means of putting her knowledge of ancient Chinese medicine into practice. Though the needles she uses in her acupuncture treatments are finely pointed, her well-rounded background in Oriental medicine helps first-time clients feel more at ease.
With certifications in addiction therapy and craniosacral therapy, O'Brien hardly limits herself to acupuncture. She performs holistic treatments such as cupping and gua sha healing both at her office and in clients' homes as part of her mobile practice. She often combines these techniques to help her clients overcome physical and emotional ailments or unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, gambling, or crying loudly on commuter trains.
When Jennifer Martinez created the A'staisora, she wanted to create a business that held beauty and well-being in equal esteem. In doing so, she created a menu of treatments for men and women that tackle everything from expanding range of motion to relieving emotional stress. Her facial and body treatments call upon A'staisrora Savon & Spa products, which use petroleum-free ingredients from sustainable farms or that are organically grown or harvested wild.

Within her cozy studio, Joy can promote deep relaxation with reiki or aromatherapy or alleviate tension more directly with firm acupressure treatments.
Shorewood Today magazine states "One of Wisconsin?s most prominent doctors of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is now practicing right here in Shorewood." Dr. Xiping Zhou, MDOM asserts that his application of TCM is "beyond needles... beyond pain," as he once told the Isthmus in a lengthy profile about his practice. His approach to acupuncture transcends the boundaries of traditional therapies. Although many holistic practitioners eschew Western medicine, Dr. Zhou established his belief in its benefits, such as modern diagnosis technology used with traditional Eastern healing modalities.
Dr. Zhou now performs acupuncture in his own 6,500-square-foot facility, called Dr. Zhou's Acupuncture, Pain Management and Natural Wellness Clinic. Zhou draws from what he sees as the best elements from different healthcare philosophies to treat ailments such as chronic pain, infertility, and to encourage weight loss. In feng shui-inspired rooms, diagnostic equipment sits alongside maps of the body's chi. A staff of eight massage therapists, including three acupuncturists and two doctors of Chinese medicine, are on hand to help in all treatments.

Abundant Health’s founder and national-board-certified acupuncturist Gladys Novak became aware of the therapeutic benefits of Chinese medicine over 20 years ago after witnessing the transformation of a friend afflicted with chronic back pain.

Gladys’s ongoing education in Chinese medicine has allowed her to specialize in acupuncture, facial rejuvenation, hormonal balancing, herbal medicine, nutrition therapy, and ice-fishing on the local lakes in summer.
