It's been a solid year in the Sloop with numerous new businesses opening. One of the newest is Equilibrium Health + Wellness at 1509 South State Street. They just opened in November of this year and are eager to be your local holistic health resource. We're excited to have them in the neighborhood!
We recently sent them some questions about their offerings as well as some specific South Loop questions:
What is Equilibrium Health + Wellness?
Equilibrium Health + Wellness is a holistic health, wellness clinic. They are dedicated to not only bring their patients back to a pain free state utilizing several different modalities, massage, chiropractic, and rehabilitative therapy, but most importantly, to help their patients maintain their symptom free state and regain normalcy in their bodily function.
Why did you decide to open up Equilibrium Health + Wellness in the South Loop?
Dr J Chan opened Equilibrium Health + Wellness, November 2012, in the South Loop neighborhood of Chicago. The vision behind the office design is to make her visitors feel very pleasant and relaxed and not feel intimidated or uncomfortable as one would when they enter a typical medical facility. Dr J's intention is not only to promote holistic health care, but also to raise awareness of the importance and the simplicity to lead a healthier lifestyle. Dr J is passionate about helping her patients through their entire recovery process and loves building a close relationship with each and every patient.
What is "alternative health care"?
Alternative health care is a form of healing the body back to its healthy state utilizing techniques and modalities that are non-invasive and natural. It differs from traditional medicine because no drugs are administered and no surgery is performed. Dr J recommends patients should consult an alternative health care practitioner before resulting to surgery or medication, or also to patients who have consulted multiple traditional practitioners but have found no relief in their recommendations.
Who benefits the most from this type of treatment?
The wonderful thing about chiropractic care is that it caters to patients of all ages, from newborns, to the elderly. Patients of all ages may suffer from some sort of neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction, or have some pain symptom they have been enduring because they have never found a proper remedy to rid the issue.
Why should people come to Equilibrium Health + Wellness instead of a different doctor?
Equilibrium differs from other offices because Dr J truly cares about the well-being of her patients. Unlike most doctors, she takes a great deal of time on their first visit to get to know the patient. This helps to build a relationship between her and her patient, because chiropractic care is a very intimate form of healing and treatment. The better the relationship, and more information is revealed, the more specific the treatment plan is designed for each patient.
Do you offer any specials?
We are currently offering a holiday special on our therapeutic massages. The original price is $80/hour, and our holiday special is $55/hour.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes, we do accept insurance. We also have cash plans for patients that do not have insurance.
What's your favorite thing about the South Loop?
The diversity. The community ranges from kids to retirees, Asian to Caucasian to African Americans.
