"I love Tim, Rhiannon and everyone at Alternative Health Group and highly recommend it! I had been searching for a place to deepen my yoga practice and help resolve some back / shoulder / rib issues I have been struggling with for over two years. My very first day I could tell this place was special. I instantly felt welcome. All the yoga instructors are incredible. They also have acupuncture, massage and other alternative health services which I have heard only great things about. I really cannot say enough good things about Tim, the amazing owner. He is kind, funny, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. He knows everyone by name. Always has time for a question. He will instantly try to help with anything you may need and even things you didn't know you needed! It's rare to meet someone with so much genuine compassion for all others. In a little over a month, his excellent yoga instruction has taken my practice to an entirely different level. My back and shoulder feel better daily, and I have new resolve and confidence in myself. I also love Rhiannon and her Ashtanga Vinyasa classes. She, too, is an amazing teacher - knowledgeable and caring. I actually starting coming to her classes first, and she had me hooked! Her classes are challenging and fun. Her clear instruction and motivation has also helped me find opening, balance and gain confidence physically and mentally. If you want to understand what yoga truly is and what it can mean in your life, this is the place to go. I am so glad I found it!"

"Dr. Tim is seriously a miracle worker. My insomnia had proved untreatable by western medicine. I had tried every pill imaginable. as well as other natural remedies. although I'm not very compatible with acupuncture (unfortunately...though I'm hoping for another go at it soon), Dr. Tim was able to recommend a couple different herbs, as well as diet and exercise changes. since i started working with Dr. Tim, my sleep and anxiety, as well as my overall well being, have been better than ever. I recommend him to everyone. my insomnia seemed like it was never going away, and now its MUCH improved. I'm sure everyone at the alt. health group is pretty amazing, but Dr. Tim is my go-to for pretty much everything. he's always available, and super quick to return all emails and phone calls. also seems to find a way to squeeze you into his schedule no matter what. I'm consistently impressed by him!"

"I have seen Tim at Alternative Health Group. I was having a lot of trouble with pain and wasn't in great shape when I got there. Within 2 hours my troubles were "handled" and the treatment lasted at least a week. There is your information about results. Now, about the ever important human connection. Tim show'd a genuine interest in my health and my feelings about my health. This is a truly gentle, compassionate man who really cares about how you are feeling. He shows a great respect for you, your body and your feelings about your health care. His outlook is always positive and reassuring. What ever the reality may be I always leave feeling that everything wil be O.K. I really don't know what else you could ask or hope for. "

"I have been going to alternative health for about a year now for acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy and yoga. I cannot say enough about the staff and the environment; all good people doing good work. The environment is warm, unpretentious and approachable. I've been worked on by Daryl, Danielle, and Tim and I would and have recommended them to everyone I know. Do yourself a favor and check these guys out."

"Yoga, Tai Chi, accupuncture, and Chinese medicine - just wonderful. Tim and the other staff are incredibly knowledgeable and kind."

"The Yoga classes here are unbelievably refreshing and centering! I have been attending class once a week since February because of the amazing results in my body and mind. Each class is between 75 and 90 minutes, includes an opening and closing prayer and a serious of gentle (yet sometimes strenuous) stretches that i can feel the impact of throughout the week. I love practicing yoga here, and look forward to it every week!"
My favorite 90 minutes every week!
"I cannot say enough good things about this place! They have such a great deposition, and I can feel the soothing energy as soon as I walk in (the incense smell does help). Their yoga classes are amazing with an attentive but patient instructor, Tim. I'm going to try Tai Chi soon (when I have time) and I'm looking forward to it. They also have a free art show (with FOOD!) once a month, and they accept donations for charity. They also have some great herbal remedies and Tim is also an acupuncturist. My friend had a sore throat once, and Tim took a look at it and told her what kind of herbs she needed to take. It worked, and she was thrilled because it saved her hundreds of dollars at the doc's office. If you're into Tai Chi, Yoga, or natural remedies, this is the perfect place to visit. They'll welcome anyone with open arms."

"I came here every Monday for a while. I got out of work at 6 and the classes started at 6 also so I called him in advanced and he would actually start me off at 6:15 and usually his classes last way longer than an hour. He would ask me if there was anything wrong i.e my knees would sometimes hurt and he would help me w/ positions to mediate the problem. I need to start going again but it's a lot farther for me now."

"I have been going to AHG for 1 yr now for both yoga and acupuncture. I have been helped tremendously by both programs. As a health care professional myself, I am very selective with the treaments and wellness programs I involve myself in. This facility is professional yet personal attending to your individual needs. The staff is involved with each client and truly enjoys assisting people through life. I highly recommend any service provided at this location."
Great attention to clients
"I started seeing Tim at the Alternative Health Group after my husband was seeing him for 5 months. I was a skeptic about acupuncture, despite growing up with very traditional Chinese remedies. My husband swears by Tim's sessions and what he offers as ways to treat his ailments. Always a non-trusting of what Western medicine had to offer, he gave acupuncture a shot. He was suffering from a variety of ailments, including digestive problems, lactose intolerance and sinus problems. He was willing to try anything. After religiously using a combination of acupuncture, change in diet and Chinese herbs, he has noticed a drastic improvement. Tim is essentially his primary physician now and helped him through an episode of kidney stones - non-evasively. I started seeing Tim in August after suffering similar sinus problems, specifically congestion in my ears that caused really loud ringing. I also was suffering from a heel spur that made it very painful for me to walk. I was at my breaking point and decided to give Tim a try. I can say now that I feel so much better, possibly even better than before seeing Tim. I adjusted my diet along with regular treatments and herbals. Can you believe that dairy was the root of my sinus problems? I cut that daily Starbucks (which was the hardest thing for me)and have slimmed down in weight, as a result. I highly recommend the Alternative Health Group. Tim and the rest of his staff are super friendly and knowlegeable. They will help you whatever your situation is and give you guidance towards the right path to better heath."
"Since my first meeting of the staff at Alternative Health Group, they have been above and beyond. I suffered from health issues on and off for quite a few years. With the guidance and devotion of Tim and his wonderful team I am now able to understand the "how's and why's" of my body. This facility is a gem in Wicker Park and a zen-like atmosphere in a world where finding peace is a rarity. I have been going to Alternative Health Group for almost a year now and I recommend them highly to all that I know. If you are looking for a staff of health specialists that know how to treat you and your body 110% phenomenal, then this is the place for you!"
