Dr. Vadim Dekhtyar, Glenview, IL

Vadim Dekhtyar, DACML.Ac.

Despite graduating as a medical doctor in 1990 (Kaunas Medical Academy, Lithuania), Vadim Dekhtyar did not follow the traditional path of Western medicine. Instead, in 1991 he pursued a certification in acupuncture and embraced the practices of the East.

Today, Dr. Dekhtyar integrates his knowledge of Western and Eastern medicine at the Life Balance Clinic, where he heals using techniques such as acupuncture, tui na (Chinese massage), and relaxation.
