Elaine J. Wagner, D.C.
Elaine J. Wagner, D.C., is a licensed chiropractor, acupuncturist, and certified hypnotist who opened her Chicago practice in 1980. She uses detailed history-taking to pinpoint the main contributing factor and then approaches the problem in layers, using one modality and then adding others as needed, including qi gong, flower essences, rehabilitative exercises, massage, and nutritional counseling. Dr. Wagner encourages patients to assume responsibility for their health through good posture, abdominal breathing, healthy nutrition, regular, appropriate exercise, stress management, and more. She learned gentle adjusting at National College of Chiropractic: if you understand how a vertebra or other joint articulation needs to change and hold it in the correct therapeutic position, it will often move into place. One of the first trained acupuncturists in the Chicago area, she graduated from the Midwest School of Oriental Medicine in 1983. She has studied and taught qi gong since 1983.
