Likely the most beautiful benefit of both Chiropractic and Acupuncture is the way they empower you to heal your body without the use of drugs, surgery or any other invasive treatment. Chiropractic care balances the mechanics of the body, Acupuncture balances your state of health and both work in their own unique way.
Dr. Ryan Han from Han’s Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Palatine, IL is a doctor of Chiropractic and is highly trained in Acupuncture and has completed over 3500 hours of training in Oriental Medicine.
What is a Chiropractic Treatment?
An adjustment from a Chiropractor means removing a subluxation from your body. This is a partial dislocation in your spine. The theory is our entire body is connected through the spine, and when a vertebrae is subluxated, our nervous system can not operate at it’s optimum.
Think of pinching a garden hose, and when pinched, water flow is restricted. Our nervous system works in much of the same way.
Dr. Han uses mild pressure to locate and remove the subluxation, restoring your body’s natural flow and communication.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture in the United States is very often misunderstood. Our patients report no pain. The process is using extremely thin metallic needles and is inserted into the skin by hand at very critical points in the body.
The main purpose is to stimulate blood flow to points of pain. This regulates the flow of the vital energy of the body and is referred to as ‘qi’ (pronounced Ch-ee).
Born in South Korea, Dr. Han brings 1000’s of years of traditional Asian medicine to his practice by combining Oriental Herbs with Acupuncture and adjustments.
