Learn More about Larisa Turin.
Larisa Turin is one of the most experienced acupuncturists in the metropolitan Chicagoland area. The foundation of her success is the unique combination of experience and education as both a physician and an oriental medicine practitioner. She has over 40 years of expertise in Western and Oriental medicine. She merges the best aspects of Western medicine (diagnosis, physiology, and disease etiology) with those of Chinese medicine (treatment of the root of the the disease instead of just the symptoms, restoring overall body balance without the side effects of medications). Larisa specializes in the treatment of chronic and complex conditions, as well as anti-aging and longevity medicine.
Larisa’s knowledge of anatomy as well as many years of experience allows her to perform safe and painless acupuncture.
After many years of working with infertility patients as a Medical Doctor in Russia, Larisa Turin was the first acupuncturist in Chicago to recommend 48 hours of bed rest for patients that just had IVF procedures. While most doctors at that time simply laughed at her recommendation, it has now become a standard doctor’s recommendation for all patients undergoing IVF.
Larisa Turin was also the first acupuncturist in Chicago to recommend the use of a Basal temperature chart to track levels of estrogen and progesterone and presence or absence of ovulation. Basal temperature is a very efficient tool to help treat hormonal disbalance and become pregnant. This has also now become a standard doctor’s recommendation for all patients that want to become pregnant. Larisa’s treatments not only restore reproductive functions, but also minimize the stress at the time of fertility treatment and/or ART.
Using her extensive Western and Oriental medicine experience Larisa is able to develop customized treatment plans for every single patient; she doesn’t just use a one size fits all approach. This allows her to have a high rate of success.
Larisa’s treatments include not only acupuncture, but also many other additional alternative treatments as well as herbal and nutritional counseling. Larisa also provides fertility counseling for couples to have a much higher chance of conception.
