Traditional Chinese Medicine
With a warm, caring demeanor, Joey Wertheimer uses her deep knowledge of acupuncture and craniosacral therapy to holistically treat mind and body.
While practicing acupuncture in New York City for six years, she successfully treated many women for hormonal issues, including infertility, postpartum recovery, weight gain and acne, as well as digestive disorders, anxiety, insomnia, body pain and depression. Joey's patients consistently describe feeling calm, happy, rooted and deeply relaxed during and after treatments.
She holds a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Manhattan, and earned a certification in craniosacral therapy from Dr. Ron Wish of Nyack, New York, learning to listen and respond to the body's energy. She worked for three years under Shellie Goldstein, an innovative cosmetic acupuncturist in Manhattan.
In 2016, Joey and her family moved to Skokie, Illinois, where she practices out of her home office. She also offers home visits.
CRANIOSACRAL & ACUPRESSURE
While the needles are in, I provide cranio-acupressure, a relaxing and powerful form of healing energy work. This magic touch treatment is a combination of acupressure and craniosacral therapy. It is very gentle; you may not even feel my hands on your feet, but you may feel waves of relaxation, emotional releases, or other sensations. Some become so relaxed they fall asleep. Cranio-acupressure feels gentle and relaxing, yet it is very powerful. It speeds recovery time and propels you toward your optimal health.
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 2,500 years. Tiny metal needles are inserted into energy vortexes on your body (aka acupuncture points) to harness your body's energy ("qi") to heal itself, so your body and mind can achieve a state of health and balance. The metal needles conduct your body's own electricity, waking it up to itself to realize its own magic and healing power.
