CCHW's move is rapidly approaching. Teri's last day in the South Loop is July 13th!

There are still a couple of appointments available in the South Loop. They are filling up fast!

We will miss seeing those of you who have been part of CCHW's South Loop community. We'll miss being close to the lakefront parks, museums, and all the summer festivities! We will also miss all our wonderful neighbors in Dearborn Station and Printer's Row, and being part of this quirky, lively corner of the South Loop. We've been through a lot together.

We are still here to be a contribution to you. Just... In a slightly different location. See you in Schaumburg!

Online scheduling - some updates:
  • Online scheduling for appointments in August and beyond is not available until after July 14.
  • Why wait? Please call or email us if you want to start scheduling ahead now!
  • See below for Schaumburg hours starting August 1.
  • NOTE: Online scheduling now requires that you set up an account for a "patient portal." Although potentially a bit annoying at the front end, this looks like it will streamline things with online scheduling going forward. You may access the portal through our website by clicking "Schedule Appointment", or by clicking on "Manage Appointments" within any reminder email.
Changes to policies and procedures:
  • The Pre-Visit COVID-19 Screening form has been discontinued for now. You may receive a notification about it before your appointment, but you may disregard it.
  • Instead: We are reverting back to our pre-COVID policies. If you are sick, please notify us and reschedule. If you are exposed to or test positive for COVID-19, contact us prior to your appointment so we can apply current guidelines for those situations. The late cancellation fee will not be imposed in any of these circumstances.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out. 

Best Wishes & Good Health,
Teri Calandra, L.Ac. Dipl.Acu, MSTOM, LMT, RMT

Weather Policy

Your safety is important to us. Keep an eye on the weather. If there is a weather advisory the day of your appointment, please consider your safety as well as travel times. Try to let us know 24 hours prior. We do understand that weather in Chicagoland can change quickly. If this happens and you need to cancel, you will not incur the 24 hour late cancellation fee.

Illness Reminder

If you are sick or starting to feel sick, please reschedule your appointment. Late cancellation fees will not be incurred for such cancellations. If you are exposed to or test positive for COVID-19, let us know; we'll proceed according to guidelines in effect at that time.

There are a number of low immune patients in our practice. We strive to minimize exposure for all, and thank you for your consideration.
Please note the following dates and plan accordingly
