AV ACUMED is a Chicago alternative medicine practice, located in Arlington Heights 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 biochemicals, 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. AV ACUMED brings this tradition combined with the modern acupuncture therapy through our licensed acupuncturists to the residents of Arlington Heights area. We have an office in 4256 N Arlington rd, Ste 100, Arlington Heights, IL  and we also offer home visits in Chicagoland. Please contact our acupuncturist to schedule your treatment.

Acupuncture is a 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 has been proven effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions.
