  • What makes us different?

    Here's what our patients can expect:


    All treatments are completely personalized to you and your case receives attention. Here’s an example of how we address our patient's health differently: when your lab results arrive, Dr. Kristen will do a “Lab Review Appointment” where you’ll sit with her for 30-45 minutes for a personalized result presentation and understand a pre-prepared solution plan she’s created.



    Our doctor’s time is important – but so is yours. We run a prompt schedule, our environment is relaxing, and appointments regularly begin on time. We offer hours on your way home from work or every other Saturday morning. You can even self-schedule online from the comfort of your home! And, our patients receive transparent information about our cost and billing practices so you’ll always know what to expect.


    Our office only offers natural, non-pharmaceutical options for healthcare and we do work collaboratively with (and receive referrals from) other providers. We practice "Lifestyle / Functional Medicine" and that means we’re driven to answer the question of WHY. We’ll always be ready to brainstorm natural, research-backed, effective solutions (or enhancements to your current care) with you!

  • Welcome! Let us introduce ourselves...

    Kristen Halland, DC, DABCA

    Dr. Kristen Halland is a functional medicine practitioner who helps people feel their best and live life fully - by using only natural and conservative treatment. She is a chiropractic physician by profession with specialties in acupuncture and nutrition. She is most inspired by the opportunity to coach patients in successfully moving away from medication dependancy through natural lifestyle change. Outside of the office, Dr. Kristen teaches Anatomy to nursing students, as well as Continuing Education seminars to other physicians. She lives in Roselle with her husband (and their two pets) and enjoys yoga, reading, cooking, and spending time with their families in Illinois and Iowa.

    Madelaine Schaufel, RD

    Madelaine Schaufel is a registered dietitian nutritionist with extensive specialty training in integrative and functional medicine. Central to Madelaine's approach is working as a team with clients to help them achieve their goals for lasting diet and lifestyle changes. She believes that optimal nutrition is achievable for every individual if they are provided tailored support, education and encouragement and they are committed to positive change. She is especially passionate about working with those who have chronic and autoimmune conditions, because these populations are so often failed by conventional therapies. As a practitioner, she is motivated and inspired by empowering clients to take control of their health with natural, safe, and effective therapies that address the root cause of the condition. Her integrative approach to treatment considers the health of the mind, body, and spirit as interconnected and equally important. Outside of the office, Madelaine enjoys nature photography, trying new recipes in the kitchen, beach volleyball, and time spent with her husband, family, and friends.
