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.

Alternative Healing

Oleg spent a 1/2 hour asking me questions about regarding the results I was looking for. Based in noir conversation, he then explained where he was going to apply the needles and why. Through the process, he explained the how the therapy over time would continue to provide relief, and recovery. I have been to Acupuncturists before. This is the first Dr. of Acupuncture that explained the benefits and the philosophy behind the process

Massage Therapy

Oleg helped ease the tension I had in my neck and upper shoulders! My neck finally doesn’t hurt all throughout the day like it used to before I got the 60 min massage. I will definitely be back soon to continue this service. He was also considerate enough to move my appt to his Arlington heights location instead of downtown.

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.
