CHRISTIE JORDAN, L.Ac.
Founding Director of Source Healing
Founder of The Awakened Now
Acupuncturist + Herbalist
Energy Healing, Fertility, Pain, Holistic Internal Medicine
Christie 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, her 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.
Christie realized her passion for the healing arts after she watched her dad move through his healing process when he was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. She 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. Christie made it a goal to not only heal her own heart but to educate her 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-Champaign. 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 the Chicago Tribune, RedEye, and Chicago's own 190N.
"Christie is a true healer in every aspect. Whether it's healing physical symptoms or evaluating one's spiritual awareness, Christie possesses the gifts of connection and intuitiveness. She has been one of the most important aspects of my life, and it continues to be so." - R.D.

Heidi specializes in treating chronic and acute pain, women's health and fertility, and emotional resilience. She is adept at supporting patients emotionally and spiritually as they deal with challenges and transitions in life, such as the fertility journey. “I see myself as a guide to empower people not only in their health but also their lives, enabling them to move forward.”
Heidi is a first generation American born and raised in Chicago and lived above her parent’s Austrian tavern near Roscoe Village. Prior to studying acupuncture, she owned a custom fragrance and aromatherapy shop called Body Chemistri. She now lives in Portage Park with her partner and two rescue dogs: Sadie and Roy.
“…my acupuncturist Heidi is one of the best practitioners I have encountered in my 20+ years of receiving acupuncture. Her openness and honesty are greatly appreciated, she is a wealth of knowledge and shares it to whomever is open. She really understands energetics and helps you get to core issues… Honestly, I could gush about her for a while but just give Source a call instead and experience the shift.” - S.S.
