Chiropractic Hoffman Estates IL Shandalla Rumack Acupuncturist

Nurse Practitioner, Functional Medicine Practitioner, Acupuncturist

Shandalla Rumack, M.S.N., R.N., F.N.P., L.Ac

Shandalla often states that the healing arts chose her. When Shandalla started college, she originally started off pursuing a degree in Environmental Science and Ecology, but after training and teaching Wing Chun Kung fu for multiple years, she had an overuse injury that caused her much pain.

The pain was so terrible, she could not bend over and tie her shoes. Throughout that 3-week period, she was following western therapies that included muscle relaxers and pain relievers. Unfortunately, they did not help her pain. During that time, she had a trip to Seattle planned to visit the University of Washington School of Biology.

While visiting WA from Missouri, she slipped and fell at a park making the pain even worse. Her pain was so great that the traditional muscle relaxers and narcotics didn't ease it. At this point, she decided to see an acupuncturist because she heard they could help with pain.

After one treatment, her pain was completely gone. Once she had this profound experience, the healer in Shandalla was awakened, and she set out to learn everything she could about health and wellness. She now utilizes everything she has learned over the last 20 years to help her patients achieve a better quality of life.
Shandalla has an extensive educational background. Her formal education includes a Master of Science in Acupuncture and Natural Health from Bastyr University; a Master of Science in Nursing from University of Illinois Chicago; she has completed her training as a Family Nurse Practitioner at DePaul University in Chicago. In addition, Shandalla was trained in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. She is trained in nutritional therapy, a Reiki master, and trained in several techniques of massage and manual therapy.

All of her training has allowed her to hone her skills as a healer and healthcare provider, so that she may offer the best care she can for her patients. Her unique educational background and extensive experience allows her to feel very comfortable working with people from diverse backgrounds with many different health maladies. Shandalla is passionate about patient centered care and meets her patients where they are at. She provides compassionate care designed around her patient's needs and desired healthcare outcomes. Whether it is chronic pain, migraines, gut dysbiosis, infertility, PCOS, hormonal and menstrual issues, or autoimmune diseases, Shandalla has the tools to work with you.
