OUR PRACTITIONERS

All our practitioners are trained in the Source Method, which combines a blend of intuitive acupuncture, East Asian herbs, Eastern Nutrition, guided meditations, energy work, breath work, flower essence remedies, and other tools to assist clients in their health and well-being. Each practitioner is also National Board Certified by the NCCAOM (Dipl.OM), which certifies them for acupuncture and herbs, is licensed by the state of Illinois for acupuncture (L.Ac.), and has a Masters of Science Degree in Oriental Medicine (MSOM). As part of the Source Healing group practice, each practitioner infuses treatments with intuitive grace, deep listening, and gentle, expert guidance.

Founding Director, Acupunturist+Herbalist

Christie Hwang Jordan

I started practicing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 1999 with a passion to assist people through health crises that often happened with life transitions. Before long, my little word-of-mouth practice blossomed into a full business, and Source Healing opened at its current location in the River North neighborhood of downtown Chicago.

I realized my passion for the healing arts after I watched my dad move through his healing process when he was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. I wanted to help people get in touch with their own body’s ability to heal and teach them to become aware of the effects of emotional and spiritual disharmony in the physical body and take action before they debilitated to a point of no return. I made it a goal to not only heal my own heart but to educate my clients for lifelong empowerment and evolution in health and wellbeing. That is what Source Healing does.

Christie received a Masters Degree from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine and her B.A. in History and Literature from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champagne. She also studied acupuncture in Japan under the direction of Nakao Sunsae, was an apprentice to herbal master Dr. Zhengang Guo in Chicago, and interned with John Pirog. Christie has appeared as a guest on several cable shows, on the E! channel, and on FOX News. She has been featured in Chicago Tribune, RedEye, and Chicago’s own 190N.

Liz Miller developed a passion for holistic healing when the chronic headaches she experienced in her teen years were not relieved by traditional methods. She searched for other perspectives and started practicing meditation and yoga and eventually enrolled in school to become an acupuncturist. She earned her Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Before pursuing a career in Chinese medicine, Liz studied special education at the University of Kentucky, where her love for working with children grew. Liz was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. Outside of acupuncture, Liz loves traveling and spending time outdoors. She especially enjoys running, hiking, and skiing.
