Treatable Conditions

Here is a short list of ailments we commonly see in our Chicago acupuncture and herbal medicine practice. Click on each title to learn more about how Chinese Medicine can addresses that particular ailment.

  • STRESS and ANXIETY  –  It’s no fun feeling like you’re “ON” all the time, can’t turn your brain off, and find it difficult to truly relax. Ongoing stress and feelings of anxiety can cause a cascade of health issues in the body. We will be your ally to make physical and lifestyle changes so your body and mind get the support they need.
  • WOMEN’S HEALTH – A woman’s body goes through a lot of changes on a daily and monthly basis. Whether it’s periods that are too long, too painful, non-existent, pre-menstrual issues, trying to get pregnant, need help through a pregnancy, or transitioning to menopause. We can help you comfortably navigate your body’s needs and changes to get you where you want to be.
  • HEADACHES – It’s difficult to think or function optimally when there’s a storm going on in your head. Low or high blood pressure, stress, muscle tightness, hormones, fatigue…we’ll listen to you to get to the root cause of your headaches.
  • DIGESTIVE DISORDERS – Ongoing constipation and diarrhea are not part of of healthy digestive tract. Irregular bowels, cramping, gas, and bloating are not only uncomfortable, they can make work and social settings embarrassing. We can help make your insides happy.
  • ALLERGIES – If you battle with seasonal allergies or food allergies there is a lot we can do to decrease the allergic reactions you experience to external triggers.
  • PAIN – Whether you are an avid athlete, a weekend warrior, or someone who lives with chronic pain, we will use all the modalities in our toolbox to get you pain-free. We know that pain can take you “out” of your life, let us support your path of recovery to get back “in”.
