Chiropractic Hoffman Estates IL Amy Yehoshua Acupuncturist


Amy Yehoshua, L.Ac., M.S.O.M

Amy is a licensed and board-certified Acupuncturist with ILAAOM and NCCAOM. In 2007, she graduated from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago with a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine and a Bachelors in Nutrition.

Amy has always been interested in holistic medicine. "I love to see how simple changes in diet, exercise, and energy can create such overwhelmingly beneficial changes to the body. There was always a clear path for me to end up practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine." All it took was a few treatments to help her own health issues to be hooked. Acupuncture and herbs worked like magic.

Starting her college career, Amy was interested in the who, what, when, where, and how we all got here. She studied and graduated with degrees in History and Anthropology, focusing on China. At Northeastern Illinois University she completed three levels of Chinese language. She also spent a summer semester doing Archeology in Xi'an, China at Xi'an Jiao Tong University.

"After college I decided to take a few years to backpack solo around the world. In my travels, I met many wonderful people and learned an appreciation for nature and the simple things in life. When I returned, I turned back to my studies and completed the Masters program at Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. Since then, I have spent the last twelve years practicing Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutritional health. I love caring for and watching my patients grow and feel better".

While Amy enjoys treating a wide variety of health issues, she has a particular interest in women's health (including menstrual & hormonal issues, fertility, pregnancy, menopause and beyond), stress and mood issues, and wellness care. Her other areas of specialization include treatment for stress, anxiety and depression, as well as pain care and management.

Amy's treatments always begin with a verbal and physical assessment. Acupuncture needles are then inserted and you are left to rest while the needles guide your energy throughout your body. Tui na massage, gua sha, fire cupping, herbal and nutritional counseling are also part of your personal treatment.
