What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture uses specially placed hair thin needles to enhance the natural healing ability of the body. Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing. By inserting the needles at specific points in the body along acupuncture channels, the points have been identified to have the ability to affect biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses. Along the acupuncture channels there are specific acupuncture points that have a designated electrical sensitivity that stimulate various sensory receptors that can stimulate the hypothalamic-pituitary system in the brain.

Acupuncturists believe that within these channels an energy exists called qi (chi). It is when there is blockages or imbalances of this within the body and organ system is when disease develops. Within the human there are over 365 acupuncture points not including extra points and points located on Microsystems within the body ie: the ear.

The Food and Drug Administration considers acupuncture needles to be legitimate medical instruments. At Eastern Healing we only use sterile disposable needles.

Wheaton Acupuncture Clinic Serving Clients in Joliet, Naperville, Chicago and Surrounding Areas

Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine that has become more useful in traditional Western medicine today, especially when it comes to fertility and the issues women in Wheaton, Joliet, Naperville and nearby areas often face when trying to conceive. Our natural fertility specialists know how critical overall health and emotional well-being are to becoming pregnant. At Eastern Healing, we provide fertility and IVF acupuncture to help women and couples in the Chicago area realize their dreams of beginning or expanding their families.

Infertility is often a result of disease or illness in the body, although it can be due to genetics or environmental factors and lifestyle. Unfortunately, many women suffer from conditions that may impact fertility including endometriosis, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), irregular periods, hormonal imbalance, or even stress. Any or all of the above can affect your ability to conceive a baby. Modern Western medicine typically focuses on alleviating symptoms rather than treating the root cause of fertility issues; we view the human body as a whole, and realize the power of self-healing using natural medicine.

Acupuncture is a treatment that promotes energy flow in the body, reduces stress, increases blood flow to reproductive organs, and even enhances egg quality. For men who experience low sperm count or low motility, acupuncture can be highly beneficial. Ultimately, achieving optimal overall physical and emotional health is vital to fertility. It is about the health of the entire body, mind, and spirit as all systems and cells are connected and all have a profound impact not only on fertility, but wellness throughout the body. We urge those in Wheaton, Chicago, Joliet and nearby cities in Illinois to learn more about acupuncture and how our infertility specialists can help to contact us today.
