Global Balance Acupuncture

Dear Patients,

After great consideration and deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to close the Global Balance Acupuncture office till April 4th and will re-evaluate the COVID-19 situation moving forward. This was not an easy decision but rather made out of an abundance of caution for the health and wellbeing of our patients, staff, families and community. We understand this will likely be an inconvenience to you and we will do our best to accommodate you in the following weeks and to reschedule appointments in a timely and convenient manner. As usual, Dr. Chow will be available for those patients who are experiencing a true emergency and are in need of assistance.

If needed, please email Dr. Chow at We will be in touch in the near future with updates about when we feel it is safe to reopen and will then start the process of rescheduling appointments. We do want to convey that this decision was incredibly difficult, but our patients overall health and well being is most important to us and our community. Although our office will be closed to patients, please feel free to contact us by leaving a message at (847) 788-9999 or by emailing us at with any questions or concerns and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

In health and best wishes.

Dr. David Chow, L.Ac., M.S.O.M., AP, D.N., LDN

“There are many benefits to acupuncture, one of the most immediate of which is a balancing of energy and emotions. This is typically evident even after just one treatment. Traditional Chinese Medicine allows the element of balance and healing that promotes a great sense of well being and peace. Together we can work to achieve an optimum state of health that does not rely on chemicals, but on natural principles that have been proven over thousands of years.”

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve function. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses.

Acupuncture is also used as a preventative medicine. Many people see their acupuncturist only 2-4 times a year for a “tune up” or “balancing” treatment. This can prevent disease and promote health, energy and vitality.

The origins of acupuncture lie in ancient China and can be traced back 5000 years. It is used to prevent and treat mental and physical disorders restoring the body’s natural balance. The first Chinese Medical Textbook was written 2,500 years ago, more than 400 years before the Chinese made the first paper in the world.
