What is Traditional Chinese 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. In 2016, the Winnetka satellite office opened.

          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-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.
