I came to Larisa for problems with hormonal acne that I've had since I was a teenager. I've had some moderate success with other practitioners in the past, but not nearly as good as since I've been working with Larissa. She did the most thorough history taking I've ever encountered taking into account my diet, stress, family history etc. She also spends considerable 1:1 time during treatments answering questions and offering suggestions, some based in alternative medicine and some more traditional. I feel like her combined knowledge of both western and Chinese medicine offers a distinct advantage over most

I have been a patient of Larisa's for years. I went to her frustrated with having the autoimmune symptoms treated by western medicine without ever getting to the root of the issues. I've seen dramatic differences since working with her. She is a font of knowledge and I would recommend her highly to anyone interested in or wondering about acupuncture.

Larisa is the best! I have been seeing her for last 4 months. I started noticing improvements in some of my chronic conditions within first month. I had seen many conventional as well as naturopathic doctors, nutritionists and acupuncturist before but no one was able to help me until I met Larisa. She has very deep knowledge on both Western and Chinese medicine and the way she combines them is amazingly effective. Larisa always takes time answering questions and advising on best approach to tackle the problem. I feel so much better and finally feel like I found someone who is able to help improve my well

Larissa has been amazing. I went to several acupuncturists in the city after having an amazing one in nashville and no one compared. Finally I found her. Not only has she helped with my issues but she has given me insight into things I had no clue could be causing them. She is very educated and gives a medical reason for problems but unlike most doctors spends a very long time talking to you about when they started and ways to treat them without medication. She is the best acupuncturist in the city and I'm positive about that.

I've been seeing Larisa for Acupuncture care, balance and preventative maintenance for many years. I actually relax and fall into a deep sleep on her table. My recent visit was for a case of pneumonia with an acute cough after hip replacement surgery. After two rounds of antibiotics from physicians, I was wasn't healing; I was exhausted, in pain and still coughing. Larisa does not do "one size fits all" treatments. Because she also has a medical degree, she uses all her educational experience to diagnosis the source of my issues rather than only treating just the symptoms; and she listens. She uses many different methods including cupping, electrical treatments and more. Her prognosis is always right on and I'm amazed at my speedy results. Larisa is dedicated, compassionate and her patience is limitless. I feel grateful that she is in my life

I consider Larisa extremely knowledgeable about medicine and how its practiced in the West as well as Chinese medical approaches and therefore she is uniquely positioned to help patients whose background is in Western medicine. She has been extremely helpful to me and I recommend her without reservation. S. Arjmand, MD

Larisa treatments have made a great difference in my on going health. I would highly recommend her services if your interested in moving your health to the next level.

Dr. Turin is a wonderful acupuncturist. She treated my condition with reassurance and guidance. I will forever be grateful for her help.

Greg Bloomer

Going to Larisa is always a highlight of my week. I always leave feeling better than when I came, and in just a few sessions she was able to help me immensely with issues I had been suffering from for years. Would highly recommend her to anybody.

Kelly Oswald

I had not been able to find a solution to my problems for as long as I can remember. No doctors were able to help. Larisa cured my problems and I could not be more thankful! If you are looking for a solution, this is it! I would be shocked if another acupuncturist would be able to help you like Larisa can

Stephanie Slawnik

I've been struggling with digestive/hormonal/mental health issues for years and haven't been able to get a clear diagnosis or effective treatment from US doctors. I truly believe that the combination of Larisa's European Medical background and her deep commitment and talent with TCM allowed her to see the big picture with my case. After one treatment I felt immeasurably better and I have a clear plan moving forward. Even though I live out of state she has made herself available to me as I work towards better health. She spent so much time connecting with me and I reached such relaxation during the treatment I want to move to Chicago just to keep seeing her regularly! I can't believe the results. I'm so thankful for her multi-disciplinary approach. It's exactly what I've been searching for.

Larisa is a compassionate, kind and most-of-all, GIFTED doctor. After receiving impersonal acupuncture services elsewhere during my fertility journey, I found Larisa at her convenient and beautiful location. Immediately after my detailed consultation and first treatment, I was confident that I was in the best hands. She took her time with every session combining acupuncture, cupping, and other techniques to customize each visit. As a patient, I never felt rushed or excused and Larisa always makes time to connect and provide her insights to curtail the treatment addressing all my concerns. I am confident that it was through her expert care that I conceived my daughter and had a healthy and pain-free pregnancy. Since then, she has often checked in on me....not something you often find in a healthcare professional. I'm so grateful for her!

Robyn Scott

Larisa is an incredibly gifted healer. She has depth and breadth in her knowledge base and skill set. She has helped me remedy very serious health issues. Larisa is as kind as she is brilliant and I recommend her highly!

Dustin Kaminsky

Larisa truly is one of a kind. I have been seeing her for several years now for various issues ranging from seasonal allergies to elevated blood pressure. She has been able to get to the root of each problem and correct them through acupuncture. Larisa's ability to blend eastern and western medicine enables her to treat the cause and not just the symptom.

Kevin Brockenbrough

I found Larisa to be knowledgable, thorough, friendly and thoughtful. I had never tried acupuncture before and her office was a great place to start. Both her manner and her office space are very soothing and her placement of the needles was very gentle. My fears of being jabbed like a pin cushion were completely unjustified! Ha ha. She asks a lot of questions prior to seeing you, and that thoroughness before the session assured me that she would be just as thorough once I was under her care. I would definitely recommend that you check her out, especially if you are new to acupuncture.

Tiffany Williams

Larisa is amazing at what she does. I started going to see her for a bladder issue I was having, and she was the only person who could actually help me. I had been to two urologists and a physical therapist, and none of them could effectively treat my condition. She was able to treat it with acupuncture and I experienced a significant reduction in my pain and discomfort after my first visit. I continue to see her for maintenance of my bladder condition, improved circulation, and now pregnancy. During my first trimester, I was very tired and nauseous and she was able to eliminate 90% of my nausea and fatigue with one treatment. She also has a wealth of knowledge on many other topics related to the body and gives great advice on how to eat properly for your specific condition and what natural herbs and supplements to take that could help. I would highly recommend her to anyone experiencing a medical issue that western medicine has not been able to effectively treat. Also, getting acupuncture just feels good! When I leave her office, my body feels relaxed, rejuvenated, happy, and just generally good.


Larisa is very gifted. I came to her in an effort to get pregnant but I most immediately noticed improvement with my sinuses. I have had several surgeries and taken medication for many years without much noticeable improvement and after only a couple sessions my breathing was vastly improved. I also became pregnant the month after I started seeing her and have continued seeing her throughout my pregnancy. I am now 3 weeks away from my due date and am fortunate to say that the pregnancy has gone very well. I believe my sessions with Larisa have greatly contributed my overall well being as well as the health of my baby. I have seen other acupunturists and the experience was nothing like seeing Larisa - I now would only trust her or someone else that she specifically recommends for acupuncture.

Laurisa is one of the most knowledgeable persons as far as her acupuncture services go. I have suffered many years and her treatments have helped me immensely. The pain subsides within a day or two and I am pretty much good for a few months and sometimes longer. Truly recommend her for any of your sciatica, back or just general pain. She also does face acupuncture which has helped me in looking better and much healthier.

Glad I found Dr Turin. I have had lower back and hip pain for 3 years and have gone to all M.D. doctors in the Chicago area who have not been able to help. I noticed improvements after 3 visits and will continue to go her for treatments. She is very knowledgeable in health related issues, nutrition, etc. I would recommend Larisa to anyone with stress,pain, high blood pressure ,etc. This was my first time experiencing acupuncture and was not disappointed.
