Acupuncture In Park Ridge Chicago

Acupuncture therapy in Park Ridge Chicago

ES Health Balance is a Chicago alternative medicine practice that uses acupuncture extensively due to its effectiveness. Acupuncture is a time tested therapy that was first developed in China thousands of years ago. It promotes health and alleviates sickness through the stimulation of specific anatomical points.

According to the classical theory there are three hundred and sixty five acupuncture points along the meridians. The twelve main meridians, where the body's energy (Qi) flows are linked to specific organs or particular body functions.

By inserting hair thin, sterile, disposable needles the acupuncture points are stimulated, which restores the natural balance and smooth flow of energy (Qi) through the body. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.

Modern science proposes that the needles stimulate the nervous system to release bio chemicals, such as endorphins, immune system cells and neurotransmitters. In addition to relieving pain, these chemicals can influence the internal regulation of the body and effect involuntary bodily functions such as blood flow, immune reactions, body temperature and digestion. ES Health Balance brings this tradition combined with the modern acupuncture therapy through our licensed acupuncturists to the residents of Chicago area. We have an office in 1400 Renaissance Dr, Park Ridge, Chicago and we also offer home visits in Chicagoland. Please contact our acupuncturist to schedule your treatment.

Acupuncture is well known form of treatment used in Chinese medicine. It creates balance in the body, where the energy has been blocked. Constantly influenced by different forces, the body’s energy and blood flows are blocked, which creates disease. By inserting needles in specific points of the body, the proper flow of energy is reestablished and the imbalance is eliminated.

According to the classical theory there are three hundred and sixty five acupuncture points along the meridians.

There are twelve main meridians, where the body energy (qi) flows, and they are linked to specific organs or particular body functions.

The main instruments of the acupuncturist are fine, sterile needles. First they were made of stone, bone, horn or bamboo slivers, then the metal ones were introduced—bronze, silver, gold, copper, and today the very thin needles are made of stainless steel and are almost painless.

Acupuncture FAQS

Does acupuncture hurt?

For most people, acupuncture causes minimal to no pain. The needles used are very fine. A patient may feel a slight prick similar to a mosquito bite when the needle is first inserted. At times, a tingling, dull ache or warm sensation may be experienced at the point where the needle is inserted. This is a desired effect and should not be uncomfortable. Often, during acupuncture the treatment a patient feels so relaxed that he will fall asleep.
