Acupuncture and Energy Medicine

Acupuncture works by mobilizing and regulating the energetic system of the body to prevent and treat disease. Drop a pebble into a pond and you see ripples. The effects of acupuncture are just as immediately felt. The medicine I offer is 'rooted in the Spirit', meaning that the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects are always taken into consideration in understanding and treating a disease.
Complex and difficult conditions become treatable when we understand that they are not separate entities but stages of transformation. Whether the problem is migraines, high blood pressure, low back pain, anxiety, insomnia, low energy, or hair loss, knowing how diseases move and mutate within the body to affect different functions and organs points the way to cure. Energy medicine is not deterministic. It is an open system that allows for transformation. There are always alternative ways to understand and solve a problem. There are always possibilities for change.
Lok-Kwan has two office locations. The Lincoln Park office is right by Lakeview and DePaul and only ten minutes from downtown Chicago. The Wilmette office is centrally located to serve Evanston, Winnetka, Glenview, and Glencoe. Weekend and evening hours are available.

My gratitudes for Dr. Niemtzow

Things happen and sometimes you only realize much later how much they have influenced you and shaped you. My experience with Dr. Niemtzow is one of them. I met Dr. Niemtzow in 2008 and was fortunate enough to be able to follow him around and learn from him for a week. This is a list of what I learnt:

  • Piezoelectrlc stimulation
  • The use of ASP needles
  • Cold laser
  • Battlefield acupuncture protocol and
  • His insight that energy medicine would be the medicine of the future

But most importantly:

  • The importance of patient mobilization during treatment and that
  • Improvement in symptoms should be achieved within the treatment session

All these techniques and principles continue to guide me in my everyday practice.

Dr. Niemtzow continues to transmit his lode of knowledge and experience. Take advantage of it:
