What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a proven natural healing therapy. Using very fine, sterile and disposable needles, our skilled practitioner gently and painlessly inserts needles into predetermined points on your body to harmonize the balance of energy flow. Occasionally, mild electrical stimulation or heat is applied to specific points for increased effect. Acupuncture includes Asian Body Work, 
Therapeutic Exercises, Qigong (chee-gong), Cupping, Guasha (mild scraping), Meditation and more. 
Most of our patients experience a calm exhilaration during and after therapy as their conditions improve...

How does Acupuncture Heal?
Over two thousand years ago, Chinese healers began mapping out our body’s energy pathways or channels called “meridians”.  Meridians run through and on our body’s surface as electric currents, activating organs and tissue functions. The vital energy flowing through the meridians is called “Qi” (chee). If a meridian is not open or free flowing, the Qi~energy can build up causing blockages. If this occurs, ample energy is prevented from reaching other sites along its path, preventing your body from being naturally nourished.  Acupuncture stimulates Qi flow into areas that lack vitality and away from areas that store excess. Both activities can stimulate your body’s innate healing ability to increase your energy balance and enhance mental well being. 

                                                             The Chinese Doctor says 
                                        “There is no pain if there is free flow
                                                If there is pain, there is no free flow.” 

Today, electromagnetic research has confirmed the locations of acupuncture points, providing scientific explanations that acupuncture needles stimulate the release of chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These natural chemicals can change pain sensations and activate other chemical and hormonal releases that help regulate healthy body functions. 

We help you lead each day with health, happiness and harmony using 
Acupuncture and Massage Therapies in Oak Park's healing oasis 

What does Acupuncture feel like?
Many of you will feel no pain when a needle is gently inserted, while others of you may feel some mild cramping or tingling, warming sensations. If you are uncomfortable with needles, please ask us about our non-needle techniques.

Acupuncture is safe!
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, stainless steel, sterile needles that are only used once. Acupuncture needles are not like hollowed hypodermic needles that have cutting edges. Inserting an acupuncture needle causes far less pain than needles used to give blood or receive injections. We only use new needles with each treatment. Always.  

Consistent treatments equal wellness 
The number of sessions depends on your treatment goals. Acute problems need fewer sessions, whereas complex or chronic conditions may require one or two treatments per week for several months. Acupuncture effects build and strengthen with repeated visits. After your condition has been treated successfully, less frequent health maintenance “tune-ups” will keep your energy flowing and in good balance.  

Insurance? 
Each day, more insurance companies include acupuncture therapy as a covered treatment. 
Visit our Insurance page to help you determine your benefits.

What about side effects?
Although uncommon, one of the needled points may develop a small bruise. Please relay any concerns to your acupuncturist before treatment. The most noticeable side effect is a good one, likely to occur after the first couple of treatments. It will be a feeling of deep relaxation or invigoration.

"Yosef is a gifted healer who brings many skills to bear in his health practice. His approach is to consider the person as a whole, with an emphasis on therapeutic lifestyle change and natural therapies including Traditional Chinese Medicine. His sunny personality alone is enough to get a healing process started. I have had many patients thank me for leading them to Yosef."

Dr. Keith Berndtson, Park Ridge MultiMed ~ August 2010

“I began seeing Yosef for treatment of migraines after having limited success with another acupuncturist. I really appreciated Yosef ‘s thorough evaluation that sought not just to eliminate my headaches but improve my health overall. Yosef is professional, personable and compassionate -amazing traits for a former New Yorker ”Great Results, Expert, Creative April 2009 ~ Lisa B.

“I have known Yosef for 10 years. When I pinched my sciatic nerve years ago, I called him in agony. Yosef initially did a comprehensive intake of my health, and took the time to discuss my health in a proactive way. I recieved two acupuncture sessions from him, and felt like a new woman! He taught me proper stretches to do, and to this day, I still do them after a long day on my feet. I also have never had a recurrence - and it was because of his motivating force that helped me get into yoga, lay off smoking and be a healthier person. I have recommended him to several other friends, and they have been grateful!” Expert, Good Value, High Integrity ~ 2009 Andrea C.

“Yosef loves what he does and it shows in the care that he delivers to his patients. He takes the time to listen and really understand what you are experiencing and then creates a treatment plan that is very customized to your individual needs. I would highly recommend Yosef and his team to anyone seeking acupuncture or massage treatments.” Great Results, Personable, High Integrity 2010 Georgia M.

“Pregnancy is a time when OB/GYN's avoid treating patients with medicine's because of the unknown effects on the fetus. Dr. Yosef Pollack uses alternative methods of treatment such as Acupuncture for the treatment of common pregnancy conditions. Here is a list of some of the problems that an acupuncturist often treats during pregnancy: Nausea and Vomiting Heartburn Constipation Hemorrhoids Edema and Swelling Pelvic Pain Neck and Back Pain Sciatica Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Leg Cramps Fatigue and Exhaustion Insomnia Anxiety and Depression Massage is also helpful in relief of back pain and sciatica common in pregnancy. It's also great stress relief for the Doctor.” 2009 Dr. Lyndon Taylor

“Yosef provides excellent service from the very detailed and thorough intake session throughout the treatment process. His expertise in acupuncture and in Traditional Chinese Medicine made a huge difference in my recovery from a serious case of mono and also specifically in addressing debilitating fatigue, chronic pain and chronic health issues.

He is a caring and knowledgeable provider and a person of great commitment. He has fantastic hands that communicate on many levels and deliver powerful results.” 2009 James P., Student , Tri-State College of Acupuncture

“Yosef has really helped me with my migraines, tension headaches, lower back pain, and stomach problems. I look forward to my sessions because I feel relaxed and renewed when I leave his office.
