Introduction: NatureMed Acupuncture uses a combination of massage and acupuncture to relieve pain. From acute to chronic, we treat stress, anxiety, high-blood pressure, men’s reproductive health, fertility, menopause, hormonal imbalances in both men and women, and sports injuries. My entire career, I have been a healer. I have an undergraduate degree in Nursing and a strong knowledge of the underlying causes and aggravating factors of neuro-muscular injury and pain. I took that knowledge and focused on the benefits of healing through medical massage. I wanted to learn even more, so I completed the master's program in Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chicago to expand into acupuncture and chinese herbal treatments. I believe in using known and studies techniques from both eastern and western medicine. It is the integration of these methodologies results in the most holistic beneficial treatments - such as targeted acupuncture, herbal medicine, and manual bodywork.

I had a wonderful experience of both healing and relaxation. He addressed what my body needed relative to massage therapy, acupuncture, and energy work. Definitely plan to come back in the next couple weeks!

I had been in an automobile accident...net result was surgery on shoulder, whip lash, physical therapy for shoulder. Have been in severe pain for 5 months while going throught PT. Medical Doctors no help PT kept saying pain will go away. Oleg in 2 sessions completely erradicated the whip lash...and all tension in the back area. He did a deep tissue massage...which helped break up the scare tissue which was impending my progress with shoulder therapy. Oleg brings a rich approach to his practice based on a variety of approaches from various cultures. I have been to various alternative practioners but I must say that Oleg is the best. Even if you want to feel better and do not have any real pressing problems...I can assure you of one thing. Take the x-tra time and go to Oleg instead of your standard run of the mill massage parlor.

I have been going to cheap massage places for a long time but never was satisfied. And finally i found someone who is a pro and believe me or i felt the difference in the first minute of my massage and the price is nothing compared to the massage you will get.

I needed to find a massage therapist that could help me with an angry IT band that had just flared up. Oleg responded immediately and had an opening at the end of the day which I snagged. He was very professional and worked hard on breaking up the fascia that was causing the pain. I felt a little beat up but that was needed for the situation. Feeling much better today!

My, experience with Oleg was great! I asked for work to be done on my lower back due to a muscle pull, he worked the area diligently until pain was virtually gone. He was prompt when meeting me, the experience was top shelf. He is now on my speed dial. Highly recommended.

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Listening is the most important element of beginning with a new client. I listen to understand the reason they are there to visit me on that day, and what underlying or related issues may also need to be address to feel better.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an undergraduate degree in nursing, and worked in a hospital for many years. While there, I became very interested in pain management, and studied medical massage. Wishing to learn even more - I completed a master's program in Traditional Chinese Medicine where I learned, among other treatments - acupuncture, and chinese herbal medicines.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My career began in nursing. I saw the pain people were in and learned how medical massage can help ease pain and quicken healing. After many years of helping people through massage therapy, I wanted to learn more and studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and became interested in how acupuncture can relieve pain and speed healing.
