Return To Health
We help your body’s
natural healing systems
relieve your pain.
Our goal is to help your body’s natural healing systems relieve your pain, return you to health, and maintain your wellness without side effects and with lasting results. If other types of medical treatments have not been satisfactory or if you have been referred to alternative medicine, we invite you to schedule an initial consultation. Whether you seek immediate pain relief or an end to chronic health issues, our care begins with your story, and we hope you will share it with us.
Patient with Injured Forearm & Shoulder
After injuring my shoulder and forearm I experienced a gradual loss of range of motion and the ability to grasp. Simply shaking hands with someone caused a great deal of pain.
Vel completed a health history, discussed the circumstances related to my injury and completed a hands on evaluation to determine that acupuncture could help to alleviate the pain, increase range of motion and allow the healing process to begin. Throughout, Vel provided thorough and easy to understand explanations of each step of treatment.
In just three treatments, I had regained almost full range of motion in my shoulder, had regained my grip and was now pain free.
Thank You Vel!

What is YOUR Story?
Because the power to heal should be in your hands, we want to hear your story. Chinese Medicine, as a medical system that views the mind and body as one, encourages us to understand the physiological and emotional factors associated with pain and illness.
You are far more than a medical diagnosis. You are a unique person with a unique story that is integral to your treatment, healing process and return to wellness. Carefully listening to your individual story, shared in complete confidence, enables us to select a method, or a combination of methods, including specially formulated herbal formulas or nutritional recommendations, to meet your needs.
Our goal is to provide care to you that is time- and cost-efficient. Together, we can work to return you to health quickly and effectively. We will share with you ways to maintain your own wellness.
To share your story and to learn if Chinese Medicine can be appropriate for your health concerns, please call (224) 541-0022 to book an appointment today.
Oriental Medicine uses a number of beneficial therapies, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, food-therapy, moxibustion, tui-na, guasha, cupping and electroacupuncture. We will discuss the therapies we think are most appropriate to your treatment beforehand, and we encourage you to ask questions. Your continuing feedback is welcome and helpful, as well.
How long will it take to get better?
The number of treatments necessary to resolve an issue depends on several factors, including:
• acute or chronic conditions; acute require fewer treatments than chronic
• the age and health of the patient; children typically respond quicker than adults
• lifestyle activities, including diet, exercise regimen and changes in your daily routines
