WHAT TO EXPECT

 

Our clean, inviting, storefront clinic is conveniently located at 3234 W. Fullerton Avenue in Logan Square.  We have cozy private treatment rooms and a spacious community treatment area. The private rooms allow for more intensive therapies and one-on-one interaction between you and your practitioner, while the community space provides the opportunity for the same quality care at a lower cost.

 

Preparing for Your Appointment

  • If this is your first time at Five Point, please complete your initial paperwork in advance or arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment time.

  • Be sure to eat a small meal a few hours before your treatment. Our therapies are best received when not overly full or overly hungry.

  • Dress in comfortable clothing that can easily be rolled up to the elbows and knees.

During Your Acupuncture Treatment

  • Needles are retained for up to 30-45 minutes.

  • During this time of rest and relaxation, you may not get up or walk around with needles inserted.

  • In the community room, other clients will be resting or receiving treatments at the same time, but music and white-noise machines allow for a quiet and tranquil experience.

During your bodywork session

  • Bodywork sessions happen in a private room.

  • The treatments are done over the clothing and include some passive/active stretching, so be sure to wear comfortable workout-type clothes.

After Your Treatment

  • Respect your body for the rest of the day by refraining from rich foods, alcohol, vigorous exercise, or other strenuous activity.

  • Enjoy the benefits of your treatments including better sleep, calmer moods, and pain relief.

 

Remember: As with all medicine, a certain therapeutic dose is required to affect a change. Acupuncture works best when received at least once a week or when combined with other therapies. Herbal formulas work best when taken at their prescribed dosage on a regular basis.
