About Mavis

Home_r6_c12I am Mavis A. Bates, L.Ac. (Licensed Acupuncturist) and I founded Inner Harmony in Aurora, Illinois, in one of our beautiful historic districts. I treat all kinds of patients for all kinds of illnesses, with special emphasis on treating pain and on helping with the special problems of women’s’ health, including infertility.

Inner Harmony Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is dedicated to creating Harmony in every aspect of your life—body, mind and spirit.

  • We create Harmony in the Body by balancing every system, every
    organ, every meridian, so that pain and suffering are eliminated and joyous
    rejuvenation can take place.
  • We create Harmony in the Mind by listening to your worries,
    frustrations, and fears, and strengthening what is weak and moving what is stagnant,
    so that the mind can experience the Harmony of Restfulness.
  • We create Harmony in the Spirit by providing caring, nurturing,
    peaceful treatment experiences, which bring the Spirit back home to safety.

*Results may vary from person to person.

I received my MSTOM, Masters of Science, Traditional Oriental Medicine, from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. This intensive four-year program included almost 3000 hours of class work and clinical training, including evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of patients. I am Board Certified by the NCCAOM (National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine). My training and experience include an understanding of Western Medicine, as well, so I can understand your doctor’s diagnosis and work with your Medical Doctor to integrate the benefits of both Eastern and Western approaches.

I also hold a Doctor of Naturopathy from Clayton School of Natural Healing. This includes western herbs, essential oils, and nutrition.
