Review

I was referred to Karissa by a coworker and friend of mine to help regulate my cycle. At that point I had been trying to get pregnant for 6 months with irregular cycles. I started going weekly for acupuncture treatments in October. Karissa was amazing from the get-go. I immediately felt comfortable talking to her about my medical concerns. Karissa would frame her treatments around my medical needs, as well as emotional needs. I quickly loved going for acupuncture! (Something I never thought I would say about getting a bunch of needles stuck in me!!) I always left feeling very relaxed and like a whole new person. I had started seeing a fertility specialist in November, and by December when I had some blood work done, I found out I was pregnant. I knew that Karissa played a big role in this-- one, by helping to balance my hormones, and two, by helping me relax. I continued to go throughout my pregnancy- first trimester she really helped with nausea symptoms and third trimester with back pain and preparing for birth. I discovered along the way that she was also a doula, and I decided to have her be a part of the birth! Karissa was there for me throughout my entire journey and made me feel more confident about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. On the day of delivery, she was very calm from the moment I called her when my water broke, to the time the baby was born. She was an amazing support at the hospital: emotionally, mentally, and physically, providing different kinds of support that my husband could not. I really can’t imagine her not being there. She has continued to provide me with support postpartum through acupuncture and as a friend. I would recommend Karissa to anyone who wants to work on infertility, pregnancy symptoms, or stress in general. She is absolutely fantastic!!

Treatment by Michael Sassack changed my life. I have a semi-permeable membrane that caused me to have terrible nosebleeds -- sometimes while at restaurants, on vacations, etc. Acupuncture has almost eliminated these incidents, and if I occasionally have an occurrence, it's no more than a few drops or a trickle. I'v also had cosmetic acupuncture by Michael, and everyone thinks I am ten years younger than I am. Michael listens well, and is always concerned about my comfort during treatment. Acupuncture can treat more conditions than most of us realize. I recommend a consultation to see whether acupuncture can help YOU!

Review

Knowing that Michael is ready and available makes me feel safe and cared for .

Highly recommend this place

I highly recommend this place. I had few health issues and Michael was able to regulate and balance it all with acupuncture. He is very knowledgeable and will take time to discuss it too. I’m very happy with the outcome.

I have been going to see Karissa McCallum for over 2 years for accupuncture and cupping treatments. I originally went for treatment of migraine headaches, but quickly learned that accupuncture can treat almost anything. Karissa is a true healer that is intuitive, caring, comforting and has provided much relief for me through her accupuncture and cupping treatments. Karissa’s ability to make you feel cared for and understood is remarkable, and she provides amazing care. The office is warm and inviting, having almost a spa like feel to it. Scheduling is easy and flexible. I highly recommend Family Tree Holistic Health and all of the practitioners there!

Like family

Coming to see Karissa is like visiting with my sister.

Family Tree was recommended to me by my Pilates instructor for neck and shoulder pain. I was skeptical that acupuncture would help but thought I would try it. I felt better after the first session. I have seen Michael and Karissa. Both are very caring and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend either of them.

Review

I’ve been going to Family Tree Holistic Health for about a year now. Acupuncture with Karissa has really helped loosen up my tight shoulder. She is very caring and always listens to my concerns and treats them accordingly. The office is very calming and the entire staff is super nice. I highly recommend Family Tree Holistic Health for all your alternative health care needs.

Review

Karissa is such an amazing acupuncturist! She puts so much time and effort into my care! She always knows exactly what I need out of each session and I always leave her office feeling 100x better than when I walked in! I am so grateful I found her!

The best.

I had unsuccessfully tried acupuncture three times (going regularly) over the past ten years at other practices with no success, a lot of frustration, and side effects after every treatment that ranged from mild to severe. I had completely sworn off acupuncture because of this. Then I had a health issue flare up and my Dr recommended seeing Karissa specifically. I was desperate and had run out of other options so I agreed to give it a try. No side effects and I felt better after the very first session. I was shocked! I really think it’s the practitioner that makes the difference, and Karissa has a true gift. I have been seeing her regularly for months and it has helped me tremendously. In my opinion after trying other places previously, Karissa and Michael are the BEST in the entire Chicago area!

Review

Karissa has dramatically improved my families health and wellness. She is a wealth of knowledge and we are so thankful to her. All of the staff at Family Tree Holistic Health has been wonderful.

Migraine and stress relief

I and so grateful for being introduced to Michael and Karissa. I have struggled with chronic migraines and anxiety for as long as I can remember. Most migraine meds had stopped working except for prescription meds that made me sick. Since starting acupuncture about two months ago, my migraines have lessened in severity and frequency, and I’m using over the counter meds to manage the ones I do get. Michael and Karissa have done an amazing job working together to develop a plan of attack for me individually. They truly listen to and care about every patient they see.

Excellent care in the suburbs

Karissa is an excellent practitioner who works to find a treatment to help. I have seen her for circulatory issues, stress relief, and rosacea. Her acupuncture treatments are gentle and effective. We are glad to have found a great clinic like Family Tree so we don’t have to travel to Chicago for treatments.

Karissa is such a gift!

Our family is so grateful for Karissa McCallum, who has helped both my husband and I with her wonderful talent and skill of acupuncture. Our family wouldn't be the same without her!

Review

I’m not someone who leaves reviews, but this place is amazing. I have gotten such great relief from my seasonal allergies over the past few years that I no longer take any meds. I went from having daily headaches and constant sinus pressure and post nasal drip to literally being completely clear and able to breathe normally. When Michael says he specializes in allergies and asthma, he’s not lying. I did so well with treatments that I referred a few family members and work colleagues to Family Tree. Not surprisingly, they all found it pretty transformative too. I’d recommend them very highly to anyone.

Review

I received acupuncture treatment with Michael during my pregnancy. I had fibroids that started growing during my second trimester and it caused a great deal of pain. I found Family Tree Holistic Health online. Based on their reviews, I decided to give them a try. I’m very glad that I did! Michael was very thorough and professional at every treatment. I continued treatment until my last weeks of pregnancy and felt great the entire time. I know this would not be the case had I not started the treatments. I highly recommend them!

Review

Michael is just amazing!!!!! Highly recommend Family Tree Holistic.

Review

I suffer from chronic migraines, anxiety and fibromyalgia, Michael has been amazing at helping my treat my body. Even though I will never be cured he is providing me some relief

Amazed as overall health time movement improve

It's been awhile since the migraines that I lost days of living have invaded. Over time and treatments I've seen and felt an overall improvement. Until someone said "I hope to move and have energy like you when I'm your age" hummm on the positive note. Others are seeing things change that I didn't go to acupuncture for. Grateful for Michael and Jasmines patience combined with understanding. That helps me continually keep moving with less or no pain which used to be daily.

Review

Monthly Reiki with Jasmine is the highlight of my month! It is the ultimate self care and relaxation! She is very warm, kind and really takes her time with me. She answers any questions I have and also recommends appropriate treatments to compliment the Reiki!

Review

I began services several months ago via Groupon and am so glad I did! I have continued with Reiki and recently began acupuncture! I learn a little more each time, because the practitioners are so informative and really take their time to treat you. I feel safe, comfortable and confident with their services and HIGHLY recommend them!!

Review

We had a fantastic HypnoBirthing Class experience led by Jasmine. She was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and made learning fun. I highly recommend this class to any couples looking to try for a natural/unmedicated birth.

Review

I've been going to Family Tree Holistic Health regularly since the start of the year. Michael takes the time to talk to me about what I need and is so helpful, calm and patient with me. My body has changed so much and greatly benefited since having acupuncture regularly. Every week I look forward to going to my appointment!

Review

I have been going to Michael at Family Tree Holistic Health for almost two year now and am so pleased with the experience. He is a very kind and attentive treater who really takes the time to address your issues with specificity to your needs. I highly recommend Michael at Family Tree Holistic Health for your acupuncture needs. Update 10/8/19: I achieved pregnancy and took advantage of the HypnoBirthing Class led by Jasmine. She is very knowledgeable, kind and made learning fun. I highly recommend this class (series of 5 classes) to expecting parents seeking to have a natural/unmedicated birth.

Dr Sassack and everyone at this office is the best if you’re looking for good acupuncture office . Trustworthy, good doctors that actually care about you , and affordable .

Review

I use Family Tree Holistic for accupuncture and I couldn’t be happier. I started using them to balance hormones and get pregnant. I highly recommend Karissa. I even ended up using her for her doula services. This place is great and I love going there regularly!

Karissa is a healer and helped me prepare for my birth!

Karissa helped me prepare for my birth before and on the day of my labor with her acupuncture treatments. She helped me feel comfortable and completely ready for my birth experience. I had aches and struggled with pregnancy ligament pain and I would often feel low energy. In the weeks leading up to my birth, she helped me relax and I felt so much better after my treatments. One thing I noticed and appreciated is that Karissa offered to use essential oils with my treatments which also made a HUGE difference both physically and emotionally. Other acupuncturists I’ve been to did not offer this option! The day I started labor, Karissa was the first person(besides my husband) I saw! She was willing to do a house call and she and I shared a lovely breakfast together before she did my treatment. We talked about the joy of birth (it was a home birth) and she was so comforting and sweet. She was right there in my corner! Thank you Karissa for being such a huge part of my pregnancy and birth journey! I would recommend her to anyone!

Karissa is an amazing doula and acupuncturist!

Karissa is a wonderful doula and acupuncturist. We started working with her early in my pregnancy and she was always available to answer questions and would reach out to her large network for resources. She was very thorough in asking me what kind of environment I wanted when I was in labor and asked about things I liked/disliked so she could plan for how to best support us. We were planning a home birth and Karissa came over to the house when we were ready for her help and she was a calm, gentle support as labor unfolded. When things weren’t progressing, she gave me ideas of things to try to get labor started again. She gave me a gentle acupuncture treatment that worked well to get the contractions going again and used her essential oils to provide a relaxing environment as well as an oil on my abdomen to help get the contractions going. When we ended up transferring to the hospital, she stayed by my side as I was put on Pitocin and was a knowledgeable advocate with the OB and nurses as well as a continued support for me as I was scared and exhausted. She stayed with us for over 55 hours of labor until they took me in for a c-section. She stayed in contact in the days and weeks after our son was born and even brought a nourishing, home-cooked meal to us at home. I can’t recommend Karissa enough and am so thankful we had her by our side as we navigated a long, difficult labor and delivery.

Review

I recently went for my first acupuncture session, I was blown away! Karissa did a tremendous job of educating me and made me feel very comfortable with the process. I have already recommended this treatment for a few of my family members. I will definitely going back for additional treatment on my shoulder. Thanks again!!

Review

I love working with the team over there. I don't really like needles, but they make the process smooth as gravy :-) I first started seeing Michael a few years ago and I have seen such a change in my allergies; I barely need medicine now.

Review

If you live in the area and are looking for acupuncture or cupping, I highly recommend seeing Michael. For the quality that he provides, the cost is more than reasonable. Michael is super knowledgeable, very welcoming and will go out of your way to make sure you’re taken care of. I came to him with inflammation in my knee and couldn’t walk without pain when I first saw him. Now I’m back to playing sports without worrying about knee pain. As someone who was very skeptical of acupuncture at first, I highly recommend it.

Review

i am so happy i found this office. michael is very talented at treating pains. after only 2 sessions my back, neck, and shoulders are feeling so much better and looser. i look forward to more benefits! tambien, habla muy bien el español.

Review

Karissa was such a loving and amazing doula for my pregnancy and home birth of my daughter. Her passion for birth, Chinese medicine and all things natural shined throughout our prenatal visits and most especially during the birth! She incorporated her skills as an acupuncturist and essential oil guru to calm and ease my labor!! It would not have been the most amazing and relaxing birth without her gentle guidance to me as well as to my husband. We cannot thank her enough for her essential role in helping us bring our daughter into this world!!

Review

This is a wonderful clinic. I struggled for years with emotional problems because of chronic pain and family stress. With Michael's help, I was able to process through a lot of the pain that had been holding me back. Since I started seeing him 7 months ago, my appetite has come back, I am sleeping better, and I have a more positive outlook. Plus, I have been able to stop taking my pain medication! He really is a miracle worker. I would HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone.

Review

This review is long overdue! I have been a patient of Michael’s for almost 6 years. I started seeing him for severe carpal tunnel pain and it worked so well that I decided to let him treat me for my chronic migraine headaches. Those took a while to get better, but they did get better! I still have a migraine on a rare occasion, but when they come on it’s much less intense than it used to be. I used to get a treatment once every week, but now I just see him once a month or so to help keep things stable. The changes I have seen over the course of his care have been remarkable. Michael has use a lot of different ideas to help me get better, including recommending supplements and changing my dietary patterns. He uses a comprehensive approach and is very knowledgeable, professional, and personable. I really can’t say enough good things about Family Tree Holistic Health. This place is the real deal.

Review

I’m a 30 year old female with sciatica. Last year, my pain increased out of the blue and spread all the way to my toes. My husband was having to carry me up the stairs on a regular basis and assist me every time I sat or stood. Working became a struggle and I limped everywhere for about 6 months. I was spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on doctors, tests, physical therapy and medication, which never seemed to help. I Began to worry I would become dependent on pain medication, as it was the only thing that would stop the pain. In a last ditch effort, I scheduled a free consultation with Michael. Michael was confident he would be able to help, but realistic as well. He explained that results may not be immediate, but I figured I’d give it a try. I painfully limped into my first treatment and Michael was very calm and patient with me while I freaked out as needles were inserted. It wasn’t extremely painful, but I found it very unpleasant...I hated it. I sat there with needles in my back, butt and legs wondering why the hell people pay for this. Despite my doubts, I scheduled a second appointment, as I wanted to give it at least 3 sessions before I quit. The week following my first session, my limp improved drastically. I thought it was just coincidence at first, but I continued to improve each time I went and now, I definitely understand it. I’m getting emotional even as I write this because Michael has drastically changed my life. I was starting to give up on my dreams of traveling with my husband, having children and just walking in general, but Michael has given me hope again. I’m not cured of pain completely and I will probably always struggle to some extent, but my pain has not stopped me from doing anything since starting acupuncture about 10 months ago. I can now walk upstairs, go to concerts, run and play with my little cousins and enjoy life again thanks to Michael. I have also been able to get off 2 of my medications and significantly decrease a third. If you’re on the fence with acupuncture, I encourage you to just try it. I wish I had done it sooner.

Not only can they help you with aches and pains, they also help with fertility and hormones! Amazing place. I HIGHLY recommend!

I've been seeing Dr. Michael for a few months to treat PTSD. I cannot express how grateful I am for his help. With a combination of therapy, medication and acupuncture, I've made so much progress in such a short amount of time it's almost hard to believe. Dr. Michael is attentive, caring and truly cares about his patients. Each week he asks how things are going and adjusts the treatment accordingly. Each week I feel better and better!!! I also had a Reiki session with Jazmin and absolutely loved it. Jazmin picked up on blockages and I felt free and light after our session. If you are looking to make some changes in your life, whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally, I highly recommend Family Tree Holistic Health.

I discovered this place about three months ago in a desperate attempt to get rid of my newly discovered sciatic pain. Having been unsure and skeptical of acupuncture, I saw a deal on Groupon and thought I have nothing else to lose and to just give it a try. I am so glad I did. For the month prior I suffered the worst imaginable pain as every move I made was unbearable.It basically hurt to walk, eat, even sleep. Not even the strongest pain medications provided any relief. My first visit with Michael was very informative and he took a thorough assessment of all my problems or issues happening with my body. He informed me of all the steps and what to expect and also that it may take time to see and feel any difference for my sciatica in particular. In my second appointment, to my pleasant surprise, I already felt a noticeable difference in the pain reduction. The pulling of my sciatic nerves lessened more and more after each visit. Fast forward to now, I am virtually pain free when it comes to the sciatica and I am just working on a little numbness I still have in my foot. I continue to see Michael weekly and hope to see if he can help me with my other issues now ...such as allergies for example. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for an alternative cure that is natural and free of chemicals and medication! Even if you are unsure or perhaps skeptical like I was, give it a try....it is worth it, acupuncture works.

After injuring my elbow at the gym, I decided to see if Mike could help relieve the pain and swelling. This was my first time trying acupuncture so I was a little nervous of what to expect but he came highly recommended from a few of my colleagues. In just 3 sessions he was able to help me get rid of the pain that had persisted for over 2 months! I am now a believer in the power of acupuncture and would highly recommend Sassack Family Acupuncture to anyone. Thanks Mike!

I originally started coming to Sassack Family Acupuncture about a year ago mainly for allergy and sinus related issues. My experience has been wonderful. I no longer suffer from major allergy and sinus attacks. I also see Michael if I happen to be feeling anything coming on (sinus, colds, migraines, etc.) and with his work, I can say that I'm able to stay healthy and feeling great. I will also mention that I'm not a fan of needles. They make me pretty anxious, but Michael does a great job of putting me at ease and it's no longer something that causes me anxiety. I would highly recommend Michael and Sassack Family Acupuncture for any health related ailment.

This was my first experience with Acupuncture and I loved it! I was having some elbow pain after a hard workout and it wouldn't go away for a couple weeks. After just 3 sessions, the pain was gone and hasn't come back for months. In addition, I got relief immediately after each session. Thank you Sassack Family Acupuncture!

My doctor suggested I try acupuncture for chronic back pain but I was reluctant. The idea of acupuncture was not something I was immediately comfortable with but decided to give it a try. Sassack Family Acupuncture came highly recommended and I, in turn, am highly recommending them here. Michael put my mind at ease during my first visit about the whole process and I am so thrilled at the decision to try it. The physical effects have been great but the mental aspects are even better. It is a very meditative time for me each visit and I feel so much more at peace after a session. Michael is very knowledgeable and talented and I feel very comfortable hearing his recommendations and ideas. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Sassack. If you are toying with the idea of acupuncture but just can't seem to make the first appointment, go ahead and do it now - I promise you, it is worth it!

Review

It is with great pleasure, that I write this testimonial on behalf of Michael Sassack from Sassack Family Acupuncture. I was previously a member of the ill-informed and unenlightened group of people that was quite dubious of this practice in Oriental Medicine. Although it is still quite difficult for me to understand the details of how acupuncture works, I can testify with jubilation that the success of this practice has been a turning point in my life. I have and will continue to be a Michael Sassack groupie. I say Michael and not acupuncture because it is HIS expertise, patience, caring and ability to hear what you tell him that makes what he does, work. His ability to address his client’s needs is what makes him stand out from the rest. My list of referrals for Michael is long. My ability to express how incredible my experience has been has become second nature. I now am learning how to explain why this practice in Oriental Medicine works and is worthy of trying. Thank you Michael for giving me this new perspective on life. You will continue to have me in your corner as one of your biggest fans.

It is with great pleasure, that I write this testimonial on behalf of Michael Sassack from Sassack Family Acupuncture. I was previously a member of the ill-informed and unenlightened group of people that was quite dubious of this practice in Oriental Medicine. Although it is still quite difficult for me to understand the details of how acupuncture works, I can testify with jubilation that the success of this practice has been a turning point in my life.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Sassack. I first began seeing him for seasonal allergies. I had never been to an acupuncturist before, and I was impressed with how comfortable and painless the treatment is. I was pleased with how quickly my allergy symptoms were relieved. What has kept me coming back has been the massive improvement I've seen in my immune system. I used to get a cold or a flu at least five or six times a year. Over the last two years since seeing Michael, I've barely gotten sick. And, as an added bonus, whenever I return from an international trip, I go see Dr. Sassack, and it has helped me recover from jet lag faster than I had ever experienced before. I strongly recommend Sassack Family Acupuncture for those with allergy, immune system, or sleep concerns, as well as those who are looking for a holistic way to maintain their health and prevent illness.

I saw Dr. Sassack when I was pregnant and overdue to help induce labor. It worked! Dr. Sassack is a very caring doctor who makes the experience very comfortable. I have also referred tons of people to his office for hip pain, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sinus problems (to name a few) - and everyone loves him! You won't be disappointed if you visit Sassack Family Acupuncture!

I saw Mike at the very end of my last pregnancy. I was hesitant about seeing him. Needles terrify me and, honestly, I didn't think it would actually work. However, I was 37 weeks pregnant, in a lot of pain, and had a baby facing the wrong way to be born. So, I took my friend's recommendation and gave him a call. He made me feel very relaxed and comfortable before he even started the procedure because he knew I was nervous. I saw him twice in as many weeks and he helped me so much. Not only did he help to alleviate some of the end of pregnancy symptoms, but he also helped my baby turn into proper position to be born. I am a believer in acupuncture now for sure!

I've been seeing Michael at his Long Grove office for over a year now, and I highly recommend him! He's knowledgeable in the field and always very easy to work with schedule-wise, whether it's a change in an appointment or anything else, he's very accommodating! Also the acupuncture sessions themselves are very relaxing and helpful, also very affordable. I'm so glad I found Sassack Family Acupuncture last year!

I started looking into acupuncture for fertility issues. I decided on Sassack Family Acupuncture mainly for its location close to home and convenient hours. I am very lucky I found Michael as my first acupuncturist! He is very professional, knowledgeable and effective. My first round of IVF was successful and I believe the acupuncture was helpful. I have continued with treatment throughout my pregnancy and have had no complications. I got relief from nausea, back pain and sleep issues. I look forward to all my appointments. I would recommend Sassack Family Acupuncture for anyone trying to conceive or during their pregnancy!

I started going to Mike about two years ago for lower back pain and numbness in my legs/feet. Within a couple of visits, I started feeling better. After seeing the positive results, I decided to make acupuncture a regular part of my life as a preventive measure. I cannot say enough good things about Mike and his practice – I only wish I had started sooner!

Review

It actually works!! I received as a gift a groupon for 3 visits, and was very skeptical however after the second visit I noticed a decrease in my allergy symptoms. I kept going and by visit five I went from 7 pills a day to one. Allergies, sinus issues and headaches all significantly relieved, Michael has made a DRASTIC improvement in my quality of life. If you are dealing with chronic issues give it a try, you might be a happier healthier person.

My doctor suggested I try acupuncture for chronic back pain but I was reluctant. The idea of acupuncture was not something I was immediately comfortable with but decided to give it a try. Sassack Family Acupuncture came highly recommended and I, in turn, am highly recommending them here. Michael put my mind at ease during my first visit about the whole process and I am so thrilled at the decision to try it. The physical effects have been great but the mental aspects are even better. It is a very meditative time for me each visit and I feel so much more at peace after a session. Michael is very knowledgeable and talented and I feel very comfortable hearing his recommendations and ideas. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Sassack. If you are toying with the idea of acupuncture but just can't seem to make the first appointment, go ahead and do it now - I promise you, it is worth it!

I have been getting acupuncture for almost a year at Sassack Family Acupuncture. The acupuncture has helped tremendously with my hot flashes and mood swings. Michael addresses concerns at each session and tailors the treatment. If you have been considering trying acupuncture, Sassack Family Acupuncture is the place to go!

Review

This is my first experience with acupuncture. I decided to try acupuncture for knee pain, and after about 4 treatments, it began to help me very much. Michael is very patient, professional, and efficient. He is attentive to individual needs. After receiving weekly treatments, I now plan to continue with a treatment every 2-3 weeks to maintain the progress. I would recommend Michael Sassack after the successful experience that I have had.

I highly recommend Sassack Family Acupuncture. I am new to acupuncture and it has been a wonderful experience. My chronic struggle with migraine headaches has been relieved! Mike is very thorough in understanding the situation, and very effective in treatment and explaining the process. The Long Grove location is very convenient, welcoming and professional.

Sassack Family Acupuncture (SFA) is a high quality, professional company that provides affordable acupuncture in the northwest suburbs. Michael Sassack is a knowledgeable practitioner who strives to meet the needs of all his patients. In November 2013, I stumbled upon SFA through a deal on Groupon and was thrilled at the competency, appointment length (no more than 30 minutes), and cost-effectiveness of this practice. I see Michael for weekly appointments due to a life-changing neuromuscular illness and his skills have helped immensely. Through his thorough care, I have noticed a positive change in my stamina since seeking treatment. He is conscientious of one’s busy schedule and does his utmost to accommodate the patient’s needs. I plan to continue my weekly session with SFA indefinitely.
