Brian Musial Licensed Acupuncturist
Founder of Acupuncture INC
Masters of Science of Oriental Medicine (Cum Laude) from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine
Brian Musial is a professional that came upon his career in acupuncture accidentally quite literally. This is true of the practitioner in that his first exposure to traditional Chinese medicine was when he sought treatment for lingering back pain experienced after a sports injury. When the results amazed him, he became so intrigued that he investigated this alternative to common medicine that offered him the relief that his regular doctor had been unable to achieve.
Having been a science student at the time of his injury, he made a convenient detour and focused his aptitude and his talents in the direction of alternative medicine at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. After graduating with honors, he became board certified at NCCAOM and belongs to the Illinois Association of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (ILAAOM), and is also national acupuncture detoxification association (N.A.D.A) certified.
Brian has logged many hours of experience with various clinics specializing from women's health issues to muscle and joint pain. The possibilities are endless with what acupuncture can do for your body and mind.
Integrative Natural Care INC is owned and ran by Brian Musial.

Tom Betts Licensed Acupuncturist
Tom Betts started in the health and wellness industry as a Personal Trainer after graduating from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Physiology.
His thirst for knowledge and constant drive for improvement pushed him to become certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. While working as a Personal Trainer he soon realized his talents could be utilized further and transitioned into a position as Corrective Exercise Therapist. Tom's strong knowledge of the body and his natural ability to teach helped him demonstrate stretches and exercises to patients to correct their posture and mechanical movement, thereby reducing pain and preventing future damage to the body.
After experiencing the benefits of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine first hand, Tom decided to undertake Graduate studies at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. His efforts led to a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine and a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition. Today Tom is a licensed Acupuncturist and is board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Tom's first goal is to treat the problem that brought about the office visit and his second goal is to educate his patients to help prevent these issues from returning. This education goes beyond the treatment in the office and Tom's sincere hope is that patients will only return for treatment when it is necessary to restore balance to their health. Tom helps his patients achieve their optimal health through education, which includes instruction on self-care techniques and incorporates counseling on diet, exercise, lifestyle, awareness, and relaxation techniques. This approach is very holistic and encourages patients to take an active role in their own healthcare and to use Tom as a guide to maintain their health. Patients can achieve effective and lasting positive results by managing their symptoms from several different angles.
