Source Healing does not accept insurance but strives to work with you to help provide the required information to your insurance provider so that you may obtain reimbursement. While we treat all conditions through TCM, you may find that your insurance company only covers specific diagnoses. Before your appointment, call your insurance provider and ask if they cover acupuncture for your condition whether it be stress, fertility, pain, insomnia, migraines, etc. Upon payment, we will provide you with a copy of the bill and an itemized receipt to submit to the insurance provider.

Acupuncture FAQs

Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that dates back over two millennia and focuses on correcting imbalances in qi, the vital energy that is essential for good health. Acupuncture facilitates the flow of qi through the insertion of fine, disposable needles into different points in the body.

Whenever there is a disruption in the flow of your qi, it can lead to disease and disharmony in the body. When your body exhibits symptoms, like headaches, bad digestion, or insomnia, it is signaling that there are imbalances in the body. We use acupuncture as a way of communicating with the body to signal healing and bring you back in balance.

At Source Healing, we go beyond the traditional practices of Asian Medicine, providing a more modern take on acupuncture. We carefully evaluate every client and ask ourselves, “What does this person need?” Teaching responsibility for one’s health and a holistic approach to life is integral to our treatments. Beginning with the one-on-one consultation, our acupuncturists tailor each treatment to your specific needs.

You will embark on a healing path that teaches you how to care for yourself and live a vibrant, fruitful life. Life is full of transitions and each has its own effect on our body and well-being. At Source Healing, we use acupuncture as a tool to help you learn how to let go and successfully navigate through all of the changes and challenges you experience.

Our clients develop a lasting relationship with the acupuncturists. In fact, we know all of our clients by name. At Source Healing, you’re coming in for the quality service, for the personal relationship you build with your acupuncturist, and the high quality of care. We welcome you to try us out.

Acupuncture is used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Research has shown that acupuncture calms the areas of the brain associated with pain, stimulates parts of the nervous system associated with rest and recovery, increases blood flow to the treated area, and reduces inflammation.At Source Healing, we specialize in treatments for fertility, stress, pain, women’s health, men’s health, teen health, and digestive health. We’re here to help provide you with the tools you need to live a healthy life. If you have a condition you would like to ask us about, please do not hesitate to contact us at 312.335.9330.

Your initial treatment includes a thorough evaluation and intake. We need to get to know you in order to determine the root cause of your body’s disharmony. Your acupuncturist will then pick points in the body to balance out and harmonize. Because this is a full service treatment, we may also recommend oriental food therapy and other adjunctive therapies, such as cupping, gua sha, or moxabustion, to assist in the maintenance of the body’s harmony.

In the following visits, we will assess your progress and make tailored adjustments to your treatments as you continue to progress. Within the first five visits, your acupuncturist will determine the course of treatments based on your response.

Each body is unique, and therefore will experience acupuncture a little differently. Clients typically describe acupuncture as a tiny, mosquito- like, pinch at first, followed by a mild tingling sensation, body temperature shifts, and/or heaviness and achiness where needles are placed. For most, acupuncture does not hurt and some clients may feel nothing at all. Acupuncture should be a calming experience, so if you do feel any significant pain or discomfort during your treatment, please inform your acupuncturist.

Everyone can react to acupuncture differently, but most leave calm, relaxed, and with awareness of self. Some may feel emotional and even cry. You may experience minor bruising, fatigue, soreness, muscle twitching, and lightheadedness, though these are less common side effects.

We believe that you are unique, even if your symptoms are the same as another person, and therefore you come with your own blueprint for healing. As your body begins to shift and change, so will our treatments. Some clients see us once a week, while others are more in maintenance mode and come only a few times a year.

Acupuncture needles are sterile, pre-packaged, disposable, and hair-thin. They can vary in size and length.
