Cristina Torres-Moore is our Oriental Alternative Medicine member. Cristina reviewed her background in doing clinical research in the pharmaceutical industry. While in that position, she realized that the drugs were mostly designed to be a temporary fix for the symptom, not necessarily directed at solving the cause of the disease. She made the decision to go back to her original training in preventative medicine and explored the career opportunities. She studied to become an Oriental Medicine practitioner and a licensed Acupuncturist.
Since starting her business a year age, she has enjoyed the adventure of finding the root of her client’s issues, not just fixing the symptoms. She described her routine as taking the time to talk and listen and observe to help her figure out what is unbalanced in their system . Her goal with her clients is to restore the body’s balance, make significant improvements all in an effort to reverse their particular situation.
Some of the issues she is able to address include: insomnia, food allergies, and pain issues among others. Cristina practices out of two offices, one in Evanston and one in the Chicago Loop area. Her practice includes 2 acupuncturists, and a massage therapist. They also provide herbal medicine to augment their treatment plan. She stressed that they take the time to provide customized treatment plans to address each clients specific needs.
