I've been struggling with digestion and IBS issues my entire life and after several unsuccessful GI doctor visits and diets, I decided to try acupuncture. I am so thankful that my blind internet search led me to Source Healing. I knew I picked the right place as soon as I called to make my first appointment. The tone was one that proved they were excited to have me and anxious to help. There's always something intimidating about going to a new place for an experience you know nothing about. I was so relieved to find that I felt at ease the second I walked in the door. There's a vibe that exists at Source Healing that can't be put into words and I think it's one that is created from the people that work there and what they believe in. It's an incredibly genuine environment and one that carries into every treatment.
The questions asked in my first visit alone opened my eyes to an entirely new approach. The questions were about me as a whole rather than me as a stomach! An evaluation of my progress is discussed each time and my treatments is catered accordingly. I love that my treatment varies every time I go in and I love that my herbs aren't pulled from a shelf but are made to order according to my needs. The constant analysis of my symptoms make me feel like she is truly invested in my well being and it taught me that my body isn't something that can just be categorized and prescribed. It's something that needs constant maintenance and my treatments at Source Healing have given me the awareness I need to do that. After only 4 months I feel better than Iv'e ever felt and my symptoms are finally under control. This success has actually turned out to be a bittersweet one as I miss my regular visits. But my tune-ups will be ongoing because I have found acupuncture to be a necessity in regaining balance no matter what the ailment. - F.P.
I can't say enough great things about Source Healing. I've been seeing the full team for over 6 months now and I feel the healthiest I've ever been - physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Diabetes runs in my family and I've always struggled to control my hypoglycemia (genetic blood sugar issue) - it's totally gone after a few months of seeing Christie and Heidi. They've also help treat many chronic muscular issues I have from a ski accident and emotional blockages. The combo of Jeries' trigger point therapy + acupuncture/cupping/gua sha with Christie or Heidi is perfect for me. Christie, the owner, is straight up magical, and worth every penny, but it's really the full staff that makes source healing a home away from home and amazing healing center. I recommend them to everyone looking for acupuncture/holistic health/healing. - Cara K.
My life has evolved in such an amazing way since I began treatments with Christie Jordan at Source almost a year ago. In addition to healing my IBS, Christie continues to guide and teach me a healthier way of life physically, emotionally and mentally through her incredible wisdom. Every time I walk through the door at 650 N. Dearborn, a sense of calm comes over me. Both my mind and my body know that whatever the ailment, whatever the stressor, Source Healing will help me overcome it. I am so thankful for the Christie and her team, I truly cannot say enough positive things. I wish Yelp offered an infinite amount of stars for Source Healing. I would highly recommend them to anyone. - J.E.
I LOVE THIS PLACE. I had always thought that acupuncture was best for specific pain like your back or a knee injury. My dr. referred me here because I had been having a lot of stomach issues, and I had no ulcers, no Celiac, etc. I now realize the cause was stress and dairy.
The practitioners, particularly Christie, are fantastic. Your first session is with her, the founder, and they ask you to fill out some paperwork. She asks you tons of questions to get to know you and learn how to best treat you. That first session was truly life changing. Christie is so in tune with your energy and is incredibly intuitive to the things you need to work through. I hugged her after our session and left floating on a cloud. And with a list of small life change suggestions (probiotic, supplement, vitamin, try going 90% dairy free).
Besides acupuncture, I've also had cupping and guasha. All have been pretty painless except the guasha at first (hurts so good though).
Overall after six weeks, my stomach issues have subsided, I've quit a few bad habits, I've cut a lot of dairy out (despite my love of it, I really do feel better), my allergies and sinus problems are practically non-existent, I sleep better and I have more energy than before. I'm still a work in progress, but I really look forward to continuing my work with Source Healing. - Amanda K.
My life has completely changed since starting regular weekly acupuncture at Source Healing. The space is welcoming, and warm. The people that work there are extremely nice, thoughtful, kind and gentle people. I have learned so much about my body. Every week my treatments with Source Healing is what I look forward to. I come in every Friday knowing whatever worries I walk in with I will leave without. They have helped me with managing stress, IBS, anxiety, depression, changing my diet, weight loss, back pain and migraines, I cannot imagine life without them. Source Healing keeps me together and calm in the midst of this stressful and crazy world. - E.L.
I have been working with Christie for the past 5 years or so and it has been a life changing experience. She has an incredible understanding of the mind, body, spirit connection and how everything interrelates to one another. Depending on what you are looking to get out of the session, you could feel like you just visited a therapist, a doctor, a nutritionist, and a massage therapist all in one day. She doesn't actually offer massage, but when you leave you feel like you had one. I always left feeling like I was floating on a cloud (in a good way). I know the price can sometimes be hard to justify, it was for me at first, but I promise you she was worth twice as much of what I paid. I do recommend her herbs if she thinks they are necessary, but she also frequently recommends supplements and rather than trying to sell you overpriced versions from her office, she always recommends brands you are able to get at a natural store or on amazon. She has such integrity and is always trying to do the best by her patients and I feel her prices are beyond fair for the benefit you get in return.
The past 5 years were very hard for me because my entire eco-system was so messed up (thyroid/hormonal imbalances) and today my life is full of incredible joy and I owe a large part of that to Christie. I honestly don't know where I would be today if I had not discovered her 5 years ago. She is the best guide I could have asked for during this transformative journey. She is pure magic and I would trust her with any and all of my loved ones. In fact I do, I have sent several friends to her for many different reasons from hip pain to anxiety/depression to fertility issues. If I had more money, I would pay to fly everyone I love to see her when they are working through anything related to their overall health. She is a healer in the truest form and I strongly encourage you to visit her if you are lucky enough to live near the Chicago area. When I say near, I mean within a 4 hour drive. I promise you...she's that good...you won't regret it.
I also don't want to scare you away if you are only looking for physical relief from something like joint pain, arthritis, migraines, etc. She is incredibly adaptable and will tailor her approach to whatever your needs are. I have sent many friends to her to just treat physical symptoms and everyone of them has raved about their results. - Ashley P.
I can't begin to tell you how much Source Healing has changed my life. I had been going to Western doctors for 25 years for my ailments. I have asthma, hay fever, many food allergies including gluten and dairy, mood swings, digestive issues etc... I've taken every type of medication, such as steroids, inhalers, allergy shots, antihistamines, stomach relaxers, etc... Having had no relief with western medicine, I decided to switch my mindset and find the source of the problem. So, for the last 15 years, my search to heal myself switched to Eastern medicine. I've had to stay on several of my prescriptions in order to function, but I was determined to heal my body in a more homeopathic way. I needed someone special that knows more than the standard testing because I believe I have something wrong with my system that no one has been able to diagnose. In my journey, I've been to 4 other acupuncturists, had cranial sacral therapy, NAET therapy, chiropractic therapy based on Cayce, tried various exercise techniques (yoga, pilates, etc... ) eat a gluten free, dairy free all organic unprocessed foods diet leaning towards vegetables and nothing has worked until Christie Jordan.
I've been going to her for 6 months now and have never felt better in my life! I finally found the right person to heal me! I don't have to take my inhaler anymore before exercising. I can open the windows in my house during spring, summer and fall and not have an allergy attack. I can ride my bike outside and not have an allergy or asthma attack. I can sleep at night without wheezing. I can weed in my garden and not have a reaction and the list goes on. I still am eating organically, unprocessed, and gluten free, but am able to digest and process foods without issue or wheezing. I am in a slight state of shock because I can't believe this is really happening - that I am able to function like a normal person! My 40 year search is over. I am constantly testing myself to see what I can do without incurring an allergic or asthmatic reaction and being drug free!
When I say she has truly changed my life, I really mean it. I'm forever grateful that I found her and can live a normal life. I've finally found the healthy me that I've been searching to find for 40 years. Thank you Christie Jordan!" - Jennifer T.
