About Peter Harvey – Board Certified Acupuncturist with Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine
Peter Harvey’s first introduction to acupuncture was as a patient. From the beginning he was intrigued by this ancient art of healing. It wasn’t long before he restructured his entire life around the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and devoted himself to helping others in the way he had been helped.
Peter became an apprentice to an acupuncturist in Salt Lake City and dedicated himself to learning all he could. He soon realized that the harder he applied himself, the more he came to appreciate the subtleties of the ancient practices of Eastern Healing. After completing an apprenticeship, Peter traveled to China to receive more advanced training in TCM at the first teaching hospital in Tian Jin China.
Upon his return, Peter enrolled in a graduate studies program at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. He earned a Masters Degree in TCM and graduated with high honors before setting up Eastern Healing in Chicago’s western and southern suburbs.
Although his practice addresses a wide range of medical conditions, he specializes in the natural treatment of infertility. Peter was recently featured in a Channel 7 News story about acupuncture treatments for infertility. This story explains and demonstrates the role of acupuncture in treating this common condition affecting reproductive health.
In his frequent public appearances he lectures on the poorly understood techniques of acupuncture and Eastern Medicine. Peter is an ardent believer in the education of the public in these concepts and the benefits they offer. In this role, he emphasizes a holistic approach to overall health in the way he works one on one with patients.
He collaborates with medical doctors and other medical professionals throughout the greater Chicago area. He regularly receives referrals from physicians in the area that are awakening to the complimentary role that Eastern and Western medical approaches can have in supporting the needs of the patient with an “integrated team” approach to treating the individual.
Peter Harvey is the ultimate professional in his personal style and combines a focus on the patient, thoroughly modern pragmatism and the effective approach that the ancient traditions provide. This approach is truly the foundation of Eastern Healing.
Peter graduated from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, IL, Summa Cum Laude with Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has over 27 years of clinical experience.
