Products & Services

Cellulite Cupping Therapy

Cupping massage therapy is used on problemed areas of the skin, such as the back and outer thighs. The negative pressure created by heated cups together with herbal cream work to break down the fat deposits that give that cottage cheese like appearance as well as drain toxins and excess fluid in the area. This effective natural form of treatment feels much like a deep massage, and results can often be seen in as little as 2 procedures.


Gua Sha

Gua sha is a healing therapy that includes the cutaneous stimulation of the skin in strokes using a round-edged instrument. The goal of gua sha is to remove blood stagnation, which is considered pathogenic and a cause of ache. This results in increased circulation and metabolic processes, and often, the patient experiences immediate improvement of pain, stiffness, or respiratory issues.


Tui Na

Tui Na is a form of massage based on Traditional Chinese Medicine theory. It is generally stronger than a massage you might experience at a spa. Various massage methods and passive movements are employed and, like with acupuncture, it is aimed at alleviating pain by correcting imbalances and removing obstructions in the energy pathways. Often, special oils and balms containing pain-relieving herbs are employed along with the massage therapy.

A friend recommended acupuncture to me as a way to address lower back pain from years of being a desk jockey. I'm grateful my first experience with acupuncture was with Angie! She is incredibly knowledgeable, skilled, and kind, and went out of her way to explain everything she was doing on my first few visits to help put me at ease and understand how acupuncture really works.

After my first session, I honestly felt like I was walking on air. The tension in my lower back had evaporated! I continued seeing Angie for the rest of my time in Chicago, and she helped me address other lingering issues in my neck, shoulders, and upper back, all of which I had accepted as inevitable, though now I know a lot better.

The second I'm back in Chicago, I will be making appointments with Angie again!

I have just great things to say about Angie! After years of trying IVF we had success - a lot of it was acupuncture here! I went to all other places like NEST etc and wasted a ton of money.
Angie is responsive, flexible and listens to her clients.

I had a successful IVF round after 2.5 months of acupuncture with Angie.

I truly believe our acupuncture sessions helped improve things and led to a good outcome. Angie had me take some herbs and was very helpful. I highly recommended her.

I was so excited to find MAT (Muscle Activation Therapy) in Chicago that's covered by insurance! And in the Loop where I can go during lunch break! I used to pay for it out of pocket for the past few years because it's the only healing treatment that works on my stupid body and I was willing to try anything. I'd even tried rolfing, which is good too but really painful. I prefer MAT where they test my muscles and work on the weaknesses. They usually identify a weak muscle that I didn't realize was related to the original tightness I mention. A pain in my neck might be due to an issue in my foot or hip, for example.

My flexibility and range of motion have always been terrible since childhood, I can't even reach my shins most days when I stretch to reach for my toes, but the improvement I've noticed most from MAT is that I injure myself far less. I used to get aches and pains or pull a muscle from simple everyday sort of movements, but MAT has made me more stable -- moving toward a normal human body. Ask for an appointment with Ralph Klisiewicz. A massage therapist had recommended MAT to me so I researched it and found Ralph's video, and now he's at the Acupuncture for Balanced Wellness office!

The office is really nice too. I was impressed because some of the offices I go to in these Loop high-rises are dated and stuck in the seventies. This office was very modern though. It's clean but not sterile or unfriendly like a clinic, it's a little like a spa even.

I went to Angie when I learned at 38 weeks that my baby was transverse lie (laying sideways/not head down) and that I may need an aversion and worst case scenario, a c-section. I called Angie's office immediately and she got me in for acupuncture 3 times that week and on an at-home regimen of moxibustion to supplement the effects of the acupuncture points. When I showed up to Hospital, the nurses and doctors could not believe that the baby flipped so late in the pregnancy. Without Angie's help, I don't think I would have had the same favorable outcome. Angie has also helped me in the past with pain management and I have found her knowledgeable and her treatments very effective. Highly recommend!

I was seeing Angie for a year and a half and think she is an extremely effective and professional accupunturist. I started seeing her because I have IBS and was trying to get pregnant and wanted to stop taking my meds. She not only helped me regulate my digestive track but later helped me with fertility issues, stress and sleep. I can honestly say that I felt very balanced while receiving weekly Accupuncture treatments. I would highly recommend Angie!

Wow!! I went to a chiropractor for back and neck pain for the first half of the year and finally decided to try acupuncture... what an amazing treatment!
Angie listens so thoroughly to all of the issues I'm having and is able to help treat the root of the problem. Not only has she improved the stiffness in my upper back, neck, and shoulders, but she's also given me mood and anxiety therapy and treatment for digestive problems.
The procedures are painless and so relaxing. Angie makes sure you're completely comfortable with the treatment she's providing and seems to have a real passion for her work. I would most certainly recommend her practice to anyone, especially those who find that chiropractic therapy is helpful, but not quite the "above and beyond" treatment that can truly solve underlying issues.

I've had chronic issues due to my figure skating background, and not only does Angie listen, she gets to the root of the issue. Words can't describe how much better I feel after visiting Angie. And I've been going to chiropractors since I was 13.

Customer Testimonials

I went to see Angie after seeking out many different forms of therapy for my back pain and anxiety. Angie took the time to listen to my concerns and helped bring great relief for my issues. Although acupuncture is no overnight cure, after consistent treatments, I continue to feel better and better. Overall, acupuncture has helped me more than any other therapy


I first saw Angie when I sprained my ankle. The sprain was severe and the swelling prevented me from walking. After the first session of acupuncture, the swelling decreased significantly. I was able to walk. I returned for three more acupuncture treatments and I was back to playing volleyball two weeks after the sprain. About a few months later, I banged my knee with an opponent while playing volleyball. The knee was swollen and I could barely walk. Once again, I saw Angie for an acupuncture session and the swelling nearly abated with one treatment! Ever since, I have been regularly getting acupuncture treatments for aches and pains resulting from playing volleyball and working out. In addition, I have been receiving acupuncture treatments for relaxation and stress relief. Thanks to Angie, I have grown to regard acupuncture as an effective healing modality. I have also been impressed with broad application of acupuncture, as it can be used to treat anything from an ankle injury to stress.


Angie has been helping me with my chronic neck and shoulder pain for almost 6 months now and have seen great results due to her service! I have had this chronic pain for over 10 years, and having her as my acupuncturist, she has helped alleviate most of my symptoms! I can actually sleep at night in a normal sleeping position- whether that is on my back or just on my side. She is extremely passionate in what she does and I would truly recommend her to anyone who is curious and interested in trying some alternative measures! Angie is the answer!

Balance is the key to health. Sickness, injury, poor lifestyle habits, and the stresses of everyday life are things we all experience that disrupt the delicate balance that is so important to wellness and vitality. Acupuncture is a time-tested method for restoring a healthy balance. It has been used in many parts of the world for thousands of years and has helped a countless number of people. In the few decades since its introduction to the West, acupuncture has become one of the most proven and well-known forms of "alternative" medicine that exists in the United States today.
