The air is cooling off, the summer winding down and the general feeling of fall is setting in. If you feel like you need to kick off Chicago's most comfortable season with a little pick-me-up, consider acupuncture at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. For $5 a session you can experience the benefits of this traditional Chinese process and maybe be inspired to make it a regular part of yours.
