Steven Vasilakis L. Ac, Dipl. Ac.

Steven is a licensed acupuncturist, and is nationally board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine and is licensed in the state of Illinois.

His journey in Oriental Medicine began in 1985 when he had the good fortune of meeting and studying under one of the world's leading authorities on Taiji and Qigong, Master Waysun Liao. Although his initial attraction to Taiji and Qigong stemmed from his interest in martial arts, he realized that the spiritual and healing aspects of these systems were most profound. This prompted him to study Daoist philosophy, spirituality, and medical theory, and would eventually lead to a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In 1998, Steven became a full-time student and assistant to Master Liao and dedicated much of his time to understanding the subtleties of Qi cultivation. In 2002, Master Liao requested that Steven share his expertise to benefit others. At that time, he began teaching at the Taichi Tao Center in Oak Park, IL and the Chinese Cultural Center in Westmont, IL. As a teacher for several years, Steven's skills in the area of Taiji flourished. His expertise was further recognized in 2006 when he competed in the First Taiji World Cup Championships in Taipei, Taiwan, and was given an award of excellence for his performance of the 37-form Taiji. In May of 2010, Master Liao granted Steven the rank of junior Taichi Master .

Steven's first exposure to acupuncture was in 1997, when Master Liao introduced him to Dr. Wang, Fuda during a trip to Taiwan. Dr. Wang's unique electro-acupuncture methods have shown astounding results in treating stubborn illnesses and are especially effective in helping cancer patients not only cope with the side effects of chemotherapy, but also regain their strength and vitality. Fascinated by this modern day miracle worker, Steven has traveled to Taiwan on several occasions over the past decade to observe and study under Dr. Wang. In February of 2008, Dr. Wang awarded him an official certificate of competency in the practice of his methods.

Steven feels it is his destiny and duty to promote the traditional healing arts he has been taught. His main goals are to help people restore their health and to benefit the community. In his approach to treating his patients, he believes that helping people achieve the smooth and harmonious flow of Qi (life energy) means helping them obtain health and longevity. Some of the conditions he treats include sports injuries, pain disorders, infertility, digestion problems, fatigue, stress, allergies, and more.
