The two are such great healers! I truly recommend them to anyone trying to improve themselves through healing and self care.

Division Chiropractic & Acupuncture
Michelle Young’s beliefs in natural medicine stem from childhood, when she and her mother gathered wild foods and herbs in the local forest preserve. They collected slippery elm for cough, dandelion leaves for detoxification, willow for headaches, and St. John’s wort for depression. This path led her to the natural healing system of Traditional Chinese medicine which views the body as a whole being, inherently part of nature, ebbing and flowing with the sun cycles, moon cycles, seasons, and weather.
Michelle graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine with a Masters in Oriental Medicine and a Bachelors in Nutrition, and is board certified in acupuncture through the NCCAOM. She combines these credentials and book smarts with intuition to give each person what their body needs on that particular day, as each treatment encompasses a personalized fusion of acupuncture, herbal remedies, Chinese dietary therapy, and lifestyle counseling. Michelle then adds the powerful element of touch to her sessions by doing energy work over the needles, while Cupping and Tui Na massage further address both chronic and acute pain.
