Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, & Herbs

For nearly 3,000 years now, traditional Chinese medicine or TCM has been taking a holistic approach to diagnosing and treating bodily disorders and dysfunction. To eliminate disease and discomfort, TCM involves restoration of the balance between bodily systems through Chinese herbs on one hand and acupuncture or Tuina therapy on the other. This approach is guided by Chinese philosophy and its worldview. Chinese philosophy sees the human body as a system within the system of the universe. It is a smaller system within this greater system, and any function or behavior exhibited by the body can find its parallel in the workings of the universe. With TCM, overall well being requires that our attitudes, level of contentment, the food we eat, the air we breathe, the work we do and the lifestyles we live are all in balance.

Life Rising was founded with these tenets in mind. After immigrating to the United States to continue his research, our founder Zhengang Guo established himself as a leading acupuncturist and master Chinese herbalist in Chicago by being a pioneer in TCM education in Illinois. His dedication and devotion to the research of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) have led to the opening of a flagship clinic for TCM, Tuina and acupuncture in Chicago on Archer Avenue.

Master Guo has also overseen the opening of additional clinics in the Chicagoland area; one for TCM consultation, Tuina and acupuncture in Westmont and another location for TCM consultation, Tuina and acupuncture in Northbrook, IL. In addition to clinic services and locations, Life Rising also offers a full product line which draws on Chinese herbal medicine at its best and most powerfully effective. Ease, convenience and palatability are key factors in keeping patients on task with a regular course of herbal formulas and supplements.
