Reviews from GoogleCarlos is an incredibly knowledgeable and professional acupuncturist. He has he helped me with various ailments ranging from emotional instability to physical pain over the course of the last four years. His kind and compassionate demeanor is exactly what you're looking for when it comes to a healthcare provider. I highly recommend him and all of his massage therapists at OCAC.EleLotus Yoga Amy B01:02 12 Aug 18For years I suffered from migraines and as a result I was taking two medications. I was beginning to have serious side effects from the medication so I decided to try acupuncture with Carlos. I am happy to say that I am now completely off all medication and I don’t have migraines anymore! It is amazing what acupuncture can do and Carlos is a master. I have referred many family members to Carlos (including some who were afraid of needles) and they all had positive results. My husband’s back injury was cured quickly while my daughter finds acupuncture and cupping helpful in relieving stress. I have a relative with lupus who could not sleep due to pain in her legs and she found great relief after seeing Carlos. I have also known women with fertility issues who were able to conceive after treatment with Carlos. I believe that any problem, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or psychological can be helped by acupuncture and Carlos’ friendly manner and gentle approach puts his patients at ease.Teresa22:36 18 Feb 18In my experience, Carlos is the most experienced and skillful acupuncturist in Chicago's western & northern suburbs. Highly recommended. Very kind. Very reasonable rates. Carlos made a big difference in my successful recovery from surgery as well as calming stress.P Rush14:33 18 Dec 17I had been experiencing digestion issues for over 6 months. I tried traditional medicine and multiple remedies before finding Carlos. I couldn't be more grateful I did. After regular weekly visits (which include acupuncture and cupping), I am off all medications recommended by doctors and back to having a full functioning digestive system in and of itself. Carlos is incredibly knowledgable and makes every experience an enjoyable one. Would highly recommend him to anyone.Meryl Cripe23:42 31 Jul 17Carlos was able to alleviate my back and shoulder pain in just a couple sessions. My experience is always relaxing and I would recommend to anyone looking to avoid pain medication and other traditional treatments which tend to provide only symptomatic relief but require constant use.Kristin Kinnaman21:36 14 Aug 17Carlos is great! He helped me with a shoulder issue before a big event, without his help I would have struggled through the event.Nicole Pawola00:13 22 Nov 18‹›

The Small Intestine type of neck, shoulder and jaw pain is caused by stagnant QI (vital energy) and Blood along the energetic channel of the Small Intestine. This is caused by physical or mental/emotional imbalances in the Heart and Small Intestine. Poor sleep, digestive problems, sadness, inability to let go of harmful states of mind, poor body posture, and repetitive movements due to work or sports are among the most common reasons causing imbalances in the Small Intestine channel.
Acupuncture, cupping and guasha are very effective in relieving muscle tension and pain, relaxing the mind, and improving sleep quality. If you think you are suffering from muscle tension and pain associated with Small Intestine and want to learn more about how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help you, give us a call or schedule your free consultation online
Muscle tension is natural reaction to stress since it is the body’s attempt to protect itself, it is a guarding action. Moderate to intense muscle tension is often caused by an imbalance in the Liver/Gallbladder organ’s systems. If the energetic function of the Liver is impaired symptoms such as severe muscle tension and/or spasms, anxiety, irritability, and poor sleep can manifest. Liver imbalances often cause stagnation of QI and Blood along the Gallbladder channel causing tension headaches, migraines, shoulder and neck pain, and poor sleep.
Deep abdominal breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, cutting down on stimulants, reducing fatty foods, and drinking enough water are some of the things that you can do to help your Liver and reduce muscle tension.
There are other organs that are often involved in muscle tension and pain such as the Heart and Kidneys. A practitioner of Chinese medicine is qualified to perform a differential diagnose and formulate a treatment plan to correct your unique condition.
If you are suffering with muscle tension and or pain acupuncture can help you. I will be happy to explain and show you how acupuncture can help you feel good again. Give us a call or schedule a free consultation to learn more.
