About Angie Ng
Angie Ng is a licensed acupuncturist and is board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She graduated with highest honors from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, one of the first established acupuncture colleges in the country. She is a member of the Illinois Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ILAAOM). Additionally, she is trained and certified as a personal trainer and has been a fitness and nutrition enthusiast for 15 years.
Angie's interest in Chinese Medicine began as a child growing up in a traditional Chinese household where herbs and foods were routinely used as therapy for common ailments. This interest grew into fascination years later when acupuncture helped resolve some of her own troublesome health issues while other forms of medicine provided unsatisfactory results. She had always been a believer in the body's own strength and capacity to heal and acupuncture proved to be an effective form of therapy that encouraged that natural healing process with no negative side effects. After experiencing the powerful effects of acupuncture, she decided to make a dramatic career change from her corporate job to become an acupuncturist in order help others experience the benefits of this amazing form of therapy.
Angie's approach to treating her patients is highly individualized and holistic. She carefully listens to and builds a strong relationship with her patients in order to develop a detailed and clear picture of each patient's overall health and unique needs. From this, a comprehensive treatment plan that not only addresses the presenting complaint, but also treats the root cause of the condition is developed. She uses not only acupuncture but also other time-tested techniques within the umbrella of Chinese Medicine to effectively treat a wide range of conditions that stem from both physical and emotional imbalances. In addition, she believes in empowering her patients to take a proactive role in their own health by counseling them in diet, exercise, meditation, and other lifestyle changes. In this way, effective and lasting results are achieved.
Having successfully managed an active lifestyle, a full time job, and going to school to pursue her passion, Angie understands the challenges and stress that a busy schedule can bring. She believes that balance is the key to health, and uses this as a guiding principal in her approach to treating her patients, regardless of what ails them. Her areas of specialization include pain problems, sports injuries, weight management, smoking addiction, anxiety, and women's health.
