The aim of the practitioners at Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Center is to better the health of their clients. They use acupuncture and massage therapy to halt muscles spasms, renew energy levels, and heal injuries. And though acupuncture and massage instill a sense of relaxation on their own, the practitioners add to the tranquility with soft music playing in the room or seashells to hold up to your ear.
A licensed doctor of chiropractic, Eliesha Evans uses a “whole person approach” to wellness, which means she first looks for the underlying causes of pain and then suggests interventions and lifestyle adjustments to address them. This method is what distinguishes the approach at Evans Chiropractic Health Clinic from that of conventional medicine: instead of focusing on treating disease after it occurs, the clinic emphasizes improving health to reduce the risk of illness or pain before it happens. The resulting treatment regimen may consist of spinal adjustments and massage therapy, lifestyle advice and nutrition counseling, or even laser therapy. Often, patients learn exercises they can use to correct their problems from the comfort of their home or the lobby of an ex’s apartment building.
Fluent in Romanian, English, and German, holistic practitioner Eugenia Otilia Mariana Paul worked in veterinary medicine and medical research for years before graduating magna cum laude from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine.

Inside Blue Lotus's relaxing space, decorated with coral walls, swaths of colorful fabric, and scads of flourishing plants, Eugenia helps relieve common bodily ailments. She restores inner balance using acupuncture, herbal therapy, and other techniques that include sound therapy, foot detoxification, and Chinese body work.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Koch, who is also a licensed nutritional counselor and certified wellness practitioner, combines chiropractic techniques with diet advice, supplements, and exercise to help clients get healthy and stay healthy. The doctor eschews rough chiropractic techniques in favor of the Activator Method, gently tapping vertebrae back into place with a hand-held instrument, instead of twisting and cracking the spine or whacking it with a mallet. Because this technique is so gradual, it can help ease nerve irritation, relax tight muscles, and relieve headaches. To bolster its effectiveness and address any underlying muscle tensions, the doctor combines the Activator Method with pressure-point massage.
The chi masters at this trinity of acupuncture and health centers seamlessly weave Chinese medicine stretching back 3,000 years with modern medicine's focus on disease and pathology.

Trained his native China, Dr. Liu helps patients manage pain and stress, restore energy, and obtain optimal health through therapies including the AcuRelief and AcuHealth systems, which he helped found.
Dr. Rapkin, who has appeared on programs such as 60 Minutes, keeps patients on the path to wellness through treatments at Vitality Health & Wellness Center of WI. There, the team boosts health with a variety of services, assisting weight loss with HCG treatments, fortifying immune systems with vitamin B12 injections, flushing out built-up hazards during detox regimens, and breaking bad habits through addiction and pain management treatments. Acupuncture sessions dispel lingering pain and symptoms throughout the body, busting insomnia, depression, and gastrointestinal disorders while simultaneously regulating blood pressure and balancing hormones. Dr. Rapkin also blends the ancient arts with modern technology; noninvasive light beams take the place of needles during laser therapy, stimulating the body’s own innate healing abilities, reducing pain, and increasing circulation.
