A new holistic health boutique in the West Loop aims to help patients improve their physical and mental wellbeing through eastern medicine techniques.

Moon Rabbit Acupuncture, which opened at 1111 W. Madison St. in Chicago in June, offers services such as acupuncture, cupping, herbal formulation and gua sha, a treatment that involves scraping the skin to improve circulation, the company announced in a news release. The boutique also features an infrared sauna and selected products focused on health and wellness.

“Our approach to healing is rooted in a whole body approach to health and wellness," Moon Rabbit Acupuncture owner Gudrun Snyder said in a statement. "Instead of limiting treatment to one small ache or pain, we focus on the body as an interconnected whole and develop treatments that benefit the entirety of someone’s body.

According to the release, patients must wear a mask when entering the building and are screened for travel and symptoms of COVID-19 before receiving treatment. To further enhance patient safety, the boutique's employees are required to wear masks and gloves while performing treatments and use medical-grade cleaning solutions.

Practitioners at the boutique include Snyder, a doctor of East Asian acupuncture; Justina Pham, a doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine; and Meghan Schmit, an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist.

Appointments at Moon Rabbit Acupuncture can be made through the company's website,, or by calling (773) 234-1042. For more information, click here.
