Specialty Treatments

Licensed Practitioner Shifts (General Practice)
Monday 1-4pm and 5-8pm, Wednesday 9am-12pm

The Practitioner Shifts offer patients diagnosis and treatment by licensed professionals, as well as the opportunity to help our student clinicians experience the work and world of the professional acupuncturist. These shifts are a good choice for people with complex health issues.

Five Element Style Acupuncture
Tuesday and Thursday, 5-8pm  (Student Interns)

Five Element Acupuncture seeks to find a patient's "Causative Factor" (CF), more commonly referred to as the patient's "Element".  The Causative Factor is considered the primary root of all imbalances a patient experiences, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual issues. Five Element Acupuncture also finds 'splits' and 'blocks' in the patients energetic relationships according to Five-Element Theory.  Diagnosis is made through question/answer sessions, observation, listening, smelling and pulse palpation.  Treatments may include needles, moxibustion, ion pumping chords, lifestyle insights or a combination of these.  Along with relief of symptoms, patients can experience a better sense of well-being, a knowledge of relationships between physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and a sense of how they can take better control of their personal health overall.

Muscle and Joint Pain Acupuncture
Thursday, 1-4pm (Student Interns)

This shift focuses on musculoskeletal disorders, including sports injuries, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, sprains and strains, arthritic pain, and a variety of other muscle and joint complaints and injuries.

Externship Clinics

The externships our students can become involved with provide them excellent learning experiences, and our patients can take advantage of them as well! Off-site clinics have the power to change the way a patient thinks, as well as how a student practices, broadening and enhancing views on the application of the medicine. They also offer students an opportunity to integrate with other medical practitioners, and influence the perception those medical practitioners have of our profession.

For more information about these offsite clinics, please call our main campus clinic: (773) 477-1900

Project Vida
Chicago, IL

PCOM is thrilled to collaborate with Project VIDA to expand their existing Chinese Medicine services to patients, with both acupuncture and herbs. Project VIDA was founded in 1992 to address the urgent needs of racial and ethnic minorities. Initially, the agency provided HIV education through street outreach services to area youth. Now, Project VIDA has expanded its community scope by initiating a variety of programs: direct services for people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS and various prevention education programs, offering offers individual and group services for adults living with HIV/AIDS. The program offers workshops focusing on prevention related topics for those living with HIV/AIDS, designed to encourage healthier lifestyles, as well as support groups that help reinforce coping skills and decrease psycho-social stress associated with living with HIV/AIDS.

Chicago Women's Health Center
Chicago, IL
Chicago Women's Health Center provides PCOM students with the opportunity to experience clinic in a unique health care setting. They provide access to gynecological health care, alternative insemination, health education, and counseling services in a respectful environment where women pay what they can afford. Acupuncture and herbs services include the treatment of a wide variety of conditions from allergies to fibromyalgia, as well as women's health and psychological issues. In addition to the regular duties each student experiences as a clinic participant, they will also have the opportunity to learn about business functions of the clinic. Students will schedule patient appointments, take payment, check inventory and answer incoming calls. This experience is invaluable to any future practitioner of Chinese Medicine.

Heartland Health Center: Devon Chronic Pain Community Clinic
Chicago, IL
