Meeting through a mutual patient in 2009, Alicia and Michelle immediately joined forces with the mission to explore the synergistic benefits of multiple services, therapeutic modalities, and holistic philosophies. Having both worked within Wicker Park and the Ukrainian Village, respectively, the women's collaborative vision became a reality in 2009, when a two-room clinic at 1630 W. Division was transformed into a warm and welcoming wellness center thanks to an upstairs addition of five state-of-the-art treatment rooms. They sought out like-minded practitioners with the same passionate commitment to natural healing and integrated healthcare.

The result is a neighborhood clinic as unique and special as its Wicker Park locale! Exuding a heartfelt Midwestern friendliness, the women's genuine dedication to their patients overall wellbeing sets the standard for their small staff of kind and seasoned practitioners. They adhere to their own principles of vibrantly healthy living by receiving regular acupuncture sessions, chiropractic adjustments, and massage treatments, and give back to the Wicker Park neighborhood through event-based fundraising and charity initiatives.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture

In a healthy body, blood and Qi, flow freely like a river through the body's landscape via meridians. The meridian system is like a highly complex electrical circuit. Acupuncture points lying along the meridians are epicenters where the body's Qi (electricity) gathers. Metal needles inserted into these points act as conductors to move, tonify and drain Qi, returning the body to a state of health. Accessory modalities include cupping, gua sha, electro-stimulation, moxabustion, and herbal medicine.


Chiropractic

Chiropractic

A chiropractic spinal adjustment the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own. It also helps to relieve pain, stabilize and mobilize joints, balance the muscular system and promote optimal body function.


Massage

Massage

Therapeutic massage differs from a spa massage in that it is more clinical and intended to address the deeper muscles of the body and underlying imbalances. Our therapists have extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology. They act as pain detectives working various muscles groups with a variety of modalities until the root cause of dysfunction is addressed.

I have too many good things to say about Division Chiropractic. A chiropractor that no longer works there changed my life with my chronic back problems (thank you, Dr. John), and Ada, the world's best massage therapist, continues to improve my world each month. Ada gives my body a restart and a refresh every time I get a massage from her. I've been through many massage therapists and I plan to stay with Ada as long as I possibly can. Today, I left with a little more life in me than when I arrived.

I have struggled with intense muscle spasms in my shoulder for the past couple of years. I started seeing Dr. Megan a few months ago and I'm doing so much better! I haven't needed muscle relaxers since seeing her and every appointment she checks in on life updates in relationship to my health and then makes adjustments to my care as needed. Additionally my sister came from out of town and saw Dr. John. He was very thorough and thoughtful in regards to pain caused from dog grooming, did an examination, did an adjustment and a referral for care in her area. Also an awesome experience. Highly recommend this place for back care!

Dr. John has been my only doctor for all of my chiropractic visits. His advice and my 2 time a month visits are life changing. I am back on the basketball court and into the gym. Not only does he provide remedies for common body aches, he also provides advice to change daily movements and sitting posture. Which ultimately have a positive impact in the long run. Pay them a visit because utilizing there services will change your life for the better. Services include but not limited to chiropractic, acupuncture and professional massages

I cannot believe that I haven't written a review for this amazing clinic until now!! I need regular chiropractic care due to a lumbar spinal fusion I had in 2014. I have also found acupuncture to be very helpful in managing my pain and reducing my anxiety. I moved back to Chicago after living in Seattle for three years and needed to re-engage with care. Fortunately for me, I found Dr. Alicia's and Michelle's wonderful practice. Even though I was an experienced chiropractic patient, Dr. Alicia explained to me in depth about how she practices (every doctor is a little different) when I got my first adjustment with her. I told her then that she would be the PERFECT doctor for a first time chiropractic patient. If you're in pain and you've never seen a chiropractor before, don't hesitate to see Dr. Alicia. I am confident that she will take the best care of you. She is intelligent, experienced, compassionate, and collaborative. I have never felt pressured at her office to come more often than is necessary for me or than I'm comfortable with. I have seen many chiropractors since my surgery, and she is an excellent doctor, one of the best in my experience. Michelle is one of the acupuncturists and the co-owner of the practice. Dr. Alicia initially recommended I see Michelle because of my back pain, nerve pain, anxiety, and stress (I am a grad student). I now see Michelle every week and have had amazing success with her treatments. These women have truly enhanced my quality of life and I am so grateful for them.

Valerie and John are miracle workers. I broke my jaw a few years back and suffer from really bad TMJ and they helped me get to where my neck and jaw are leaps and bounds from where they were before starting treatment. Super friendly service and very nice space as well. Valerie also hooked me up with a yoga routine. I could not recommend this place more.

Dr Jon is great! He listened very carefully to all of my issues and worked with me slowly to figure out the main problem and find a solution that I can work on myself. Unlike chain chiropractors, he did not give me an xray and start adjusting my back forcefully right away. This has happened to me in the past and it felt like a 1 and done who is next sort of situation. Jon approached my neck and back pain responsibly by listening and making adjustments slowly until we were certain it would help and not hurt. I can say only after a couple of sessions my neck pain is 95% gone and my lower back pain is 90% gone. And if I feel like I might get the pain again due to too much bending or lifting, I have tools to make the pain go away. This is LIFE CHANGING. I can focus at work, I get more things done and I am more active without my pain and with more range of motion. Thanks Dr Jon and staff at Division!

I initially started going for acupuncture at this practice because my insurance covered it...(yes, I know -- #blessed).

Well, that gravy train of benefits ended and even still I continue to come here and pay out of pocket, because it is GREAT.

I see Cassie and Michelle for acupuncture, and every time it is lovely. Calm, effective, professional. A 1-hour power healing nap is how I like to think of it.

Scheduling is always a snap, and their front desk is friendly and kind. I've never had to wait.

Street parking only (DO NOT park in adjacent MB Financial lot), but I never have a hard time finding a metered spot. It's steps from the Division blue line and accessible by several bus routes (Milwaukee, Ashland, Division).

Also, there's Scone City next door in the event you are early -- enjoy a great scone and coffee/tea while you wait!

Dr. Megan is amazing and her adjustments always help with my hips and lower back problems. I've been to other chiropractors who want to pre-set a treatment schedule (one wanted me in 3x/week!!) dr. Megan always makes it clear she wants to listen to what my body wants and not overcharge me with redundant visits.
I've also had Alyssa and sherry for massages. Both are so skilled in different ways, definitely worth the experience.
Every time I've called to schedule appointments or even initially to check benefits, everyone I've spoken to has been so helpful and friendly. There are a couple 1-star reviews on here about poor customer service; completely unfounded. I was even that horrible patient who has to reschedule 4x on one call (I apologized profusely) and the woman working with me was nothing but gracious.

Customer Testimonials

Warm and friendly staff that made me feel great when first arriving up until leaving. I went for a 60 minute sports massage and I'm thankful for the wonderful job Ada did! I'll definitely be back soon!


Great people serving you here. Jenni gave a great message.


My neighborhood massage and chiropractor! The staff is warm and friendly and the massages really help me as I'm at a computer all day.


I've been going to Divison Chiropractic and Acupuncture for quite a few years now and my chronic back pain that was ailing me for years has gone away. I moved away from the area, but I'm able to go in once a month, which helps me maintain good back health. Michelle Young has helped me a great deal with acupuncture and she is my go-to person for any questions about my general health. Alicia Cohler and Paula Halfman really got my back to a great place with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massage. I highly recommend Division Chiropractic and Acupuncture. The practitioners there really care about your health and I always leave there feeling amazing.


I've gone to Division Chiropractic for an assessment, acupuncture and massage. I feel very taken care of and listened to with each practitioner I see. I always leave the building feeling incredible, and in a great mood. Would highly recommend this establishment. And it's a women-run business! A huge plus!


I'm new to acupuncture but it was something I've always wanted to start up and make a regular part of my wellness program. A shoulder injury set me over the edge and got me to finally make an appointment. I met with Michelle and knew almost instantly that I was hooked.

Michelle, the space, and her practice are top-notch. Not only does my shoulder feel 100x better but I look forward to my weekly appointments to recharge, relax, and reconnect with my body.

I wish I could give Michelle and the team at Division 10 stars--they're truly the best.


I had a bike accident a few months ago, and I can't sing enough how wonderful all the therapists at Division Chiropractic have been for me! I would highly recommend Jenni and Megan!


I started with a consultation by Dr. Cohler, she was so thorough and listened to all my issues. After taking the time to talk through everything with me she suggested I start seeing Jenny for therapeutic massage. Jenny is very very experienced and put me at ease right away. She knows the body and after just one visit she knew how to help me. Massages like this are not exactly enjoyable (deep tissue work and breaking up scar tissue is painful) but I do look forward to my visits because they help me so much throughout the work week! The front desk staff is lovely as well!


Division Chiropractic & Acupuncture has such a nice group of people working there. I highly recommend! Everyone is friendly and professional, and Megan has done wonders for my neck pain.


I love this place. I visited once and Im hooked. Dr. Thompson is friendly, spends time with me, and cares. I only pay my copay here. No hidden charges and excessive cost. Im a continuous patient now.


I have been meaning to write a review for such a long time. I have been getting deep tissue massages from Sherry for several months now and she is the best massage therapist I've ever had. If you have chronic soreness and want actual relief as opposed to sensory Swedish massage, then Sherry is your girl. She really has made a difference in my body! Now I can actually start trying to think about my posture and other issues besides shoulder and neck tightness all the time.

I have also visited with Dr. Megan Thompson who is a wonderful chiropractor. She gives me a little rub down before each adjustment to get my body warmed up. Gotta love that.

These guys know what they are doing and will help you! I went on vacation once and got a massage from this Not-Sherry character, and I was so disappointed. I came back and told her she has ruined other massage therapists for me. I don't think I'll ever go anywhere else!


I have two herniated discs and acupuncture has consistently helped when I have a flare up. I had a bad experience here in Chicago with an acupuncturist and I get a little woozy with needles. Thank goodness I found Samara!!! She is so gentle and soothing, just being around her makes me feel relaxed. I've seen her off and on for the last year when I have a flare up, and she has consistently helped relieve my pain. She is wonderful and I would see her for any/all other issues if something came up.


I've been coming here for 2+ years and can't say better things about this group. Alicia is a phenomenal chiropractor, and Jenni does great massage work. They're super focused on understanding the root of pain and working with you to improve it - can't recommend them more!


These people keep in line and happy. Good crew and very professional.

From Our Website

I have gotten a massage from many places, and Sherry is the absolute best! Her professionalism, kindness, attention to detail and overall knowledge of her craft is superb. I recommend Division Chiropractic to any and everyone! Welcome to Division Chiropractic and Acupuncture, a wellness center with a dedicated and compassionate focus on integrative and holistic approaches to healing. Every patient's wellness journey is as unique as the treatments we provide, so offer comprehensive care through our synergistic services that enhance and accelerate the healing process.


Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. No part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments-called subluxations-can cause poor health or function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment.
