 Your Specific Ailments Targeted at Deerfield Community Acupuncture Clinic

    If you haven’t heard of community acupuncture or how it works, you are not alone. Anatoliy Pak, a licensed acupuncturist, is educating the North Shore community on what this type of acupuncture is, and how it can help you. Anatoliy, the owner of a small, family-owned acupuncture clinic, Deerfield Community Acupuncture Clinic, at 405 Lake Cook Rd., Suite 211 in Deerfield, guides and assists his patients in finding their personal balance of health and well-being.
    “Community Acupuncture is an innovative approach to traditional Oriental medicine that painlessly places needles in strategic points on the body. Your individualized treatment, which is designed to target your specific ailments, is administered in a comfortable zero-gravity reclining arm chair, alongside two to five other patients,” says AnatoliyPak.
    Because the needles are placed below your knees and elbows, there is no need for his patients to undress.  Meditative silence occurs during all sessions, which may last up to two hours. Anatoliy believes that one of the important keys to successful acupuncture is a commitment on the part of the patient to wanting to feel better and be healthy.
   Community acupuncture offers numerous advantages for patients seeking acupuncture treatments that individualized sessions can’t offer. Deerfield Community Acupuncture Clinic uses a sliding scale with pricing between $20-$40 per treatment. “This allows our patients to pay what they can afford; therefore, allowing increased access to treatments,” says Anatoliy Pak. “Affordable pricing also allows more frequent visits and a way for our patients to achieve their healthy goal in a shorter period of time.”
    Anatoliy Pak strongly believes that the current healthcare systems makes people sicker. As medicine becomes more specialized, a physician isn’t trained to treat or looking at the whole person. Your physician may be specifically trained to treat your knees, shoulders, thyroid issues, allergies or neurological problems. Medications are dispensed quickly to relieve your pain or treat some specific symptoms. But, the benefit comes along with significant toxicity damaging the body. Practitioners at the Deerfield Community Acupuncture Clinic concentrate on each person’s complete health. They focus on the entire person; thus, improving the whole body....not just a single complaint.
     “Pain tells us something important. When doctors use pain medications, they are interfering with the warning system of the body,” he says. “Oriental medicine is not ignoring the pain, but it doesn’t need biochemical agents to solve the medical problem. Acupuncture, along with herbs, massage therapy and therapeutic exercises, starts the repair of  the whole body by engaging the body’s own healing mechanisms.”
    Anatoliy Pak’s ultimate goal is to provide public awareness about community acupuncture, and how it can restore and improve your health. He also wants to let people know that acupuncture doesn’t have to be expensive-as many people think- but that anyone can afford it.
