About Sue Cook

Hi, I’m Sue! I have a Master’s degree in Traditional East Asian Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science and a Master’s in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago. I have been in practice as an acupuncturist for the last eight years and am in the process of becoming a licensed social worker. I offer traditional Chinese style acupuncture as well as motor point/trigger point acupuncture (sometimes referred to as “dry needling”) in addition to cupping, guasha, and moxibustion. I am also a passionate herbalist and have trained in both traditional Chinese herbalism as well as the more commonly used European and North American herbs. In additional to herbs, I enjoy recommending nutritional supplements such as amino acids and vitamins.

I love to use acupuncture in supporting my clients in their journey to reconcile and heal their bodies and mind. I have worked extensively with trauma survivors, people with chronic illnesses and pain, and LGBTQ2IA emerging adults. I am sex/kink/polyamory-positive, body-neutral, and sex-worker affirming. I strive to acknowledge and to combat the systemic impact of White supremacy, including its relationship to fatphobia, transphobia, and ableism.

I studied at Pacific College of Health and Science’s Chicago campus, a school with the highest reputation for academic rigor in both Chinese and Western subjects, and graduated in 2012. While at Pacific, I was honored to receive the Golden Flower Service Award for excellence in herbal studies. I returned to my alma mater as a professor in 2020 and currently teach a first year course on clinical counseling skills.

I use my own personal experiences dealing with chronic pain and trauma to fuel my compassionate, common-sense approach to treating my patients. My specialties and current interests include sports injuries, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, trauma recovery, sexual and reproductive health, IBS, and autoimmune diseases. I am honored to be working with such a skilled and thoughtful team of healers! I believe that trauma is a story that is written on both the body and mind; it is important to bring the body back to a place of safety in order for the mind to recover. I am so excited to be able to be part of a group that recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to trauma recovery.

Fun fact about me: I am an avid tabletop and video gamer. Since the pandemic started I have been running a series of Dungeons & Dragons and Star Trek Adventures role-playing games with friends from all over the country via Zoom! I also love to cook, garden, and read under a blanket pile with my cat.
