Natural Healing from Certified Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture Therapy for Mount Prospect, Des Plains, Arlington Heights & Beyond
Acupuncture treatment is a branch of Oriental medicine that’s over 3,000 years old. Its goal is to rebalance a patient’s Qi (pronounced “chee"), and thereby promote natural healing. When the Qi is blocked, weak or excessive, it can lead to illness and disease. At Schulze Chiropractic, we stimulate acupuncture points and meridians using a variety of methods:
- Acupuncture: An acupuncturist inserts thin, sterile needles into strategic points along energy meridian pathways
- Electronic stimulation
- Acupressure: The application of heat through moxibustion — drawing out energy via “cupping,” and a specialized massage system called “tuina.”
