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.
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.”
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.
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Atkinson, the friendly staff of Atkinson Chiropractic allays vertebrae and soothes spines through holistic practices and stress-busting massages, including prenatal massages. A one-hour Swedish massage at the hands of a professional limb-loosener will relieve tension and untie double-Windsor dorsal knots through fluid, gliding strokes. Alternately, a deep-tissue massage can appease pains associated with chronic muscle tension by gently penetrating deeper layers of muscle and rooting out stubborn aches tucked away in corporeal crannies.
