National University of Health Sciences is celebrating Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine week from October 17-22, 2016, and is offering free oriental medicine consultations to new patients at the NUHS Whole Health Center in Lombard.
By appointment only, the free consultations include:
- A complete oriental medical exam
- A thorough oriental medical diagnosis
- A free acupuncture treatment (optional)
Oriental medicine is the oldest codified system of medicine in the world and relies on a highly comprehensive and individualized diagnosis of a patient’s Qi (or chi) energy. To restore health and balance, the oriental medicine practitioner uses a broad scope of therapies, including, acupuncture; Chinese herbal medicine; oriental nutrition and dietary therapy; tuina or oriental bodywork; as well as tai chi and qi gong.
The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture and oriental medicine as effective for over 43 medical conditions in 9 major health categories, including, respiratory disorders, reproductive disorders, neurological conditions, gastrointestinal disorders and more.

“Many of our patients find success with acupuncture and oriental medicine, even after other health care options have failed to give them the results they are looking for,” says Dr. Hyundo Kim, chief clinician for National University’s acupuncture and oriental medicine program.
The NUHS Whole Health Center has expert clinicians and interns who are highly trained in traditional oriental medicine and acupuncture. The university offers masters degrees in both acupuncture and oriental medicine at its Lombard campus.
