Mari Stecker Fundraiser

As many of you know, our acupuncturist Mari Stecker has been battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma for the past year. She is now in her sixth round of chemotherapy. The lymphoma came in the wake of uterine cancer, which Mari overcame less than five years ago.

With all this treatment, Mari has been unable to work for more than a year. To help with her considerable financial distress (and provide a nice Valentine’s Day gift), WholeHealth Chicago is holding an unusual fundraiser.

A portion of the profits from all purchases in our apothecary on Valentine’s Day will go to Mari.

Please review your supplements now so you can place an order on Thursday, February 14. If you’ve not been a regular customer, consider using our apothecary this Valentine’s Day to help bolster our fundraiser. We stock the highest quality brands of virtually every type of supplement. Our knowledgeable staff can help you with questions. Contact them at 773-296-6700 ext. 2001 or click here to send an email.

Sweeter than chocolates or flowers, you can be certain this gift will be gratefully received.

With our personal thanks,
David Edelberg, Paul Rubin, Casey Kelley, Cliff Maurer, Larry Stoler, Cindy Kudelka, Helen Strietelmeier, Marla Feingold, Seanna Tully, Sujatha Mannal, Samson Wong, Karen Meier, Katie Oberlin,  Janet Chandler, Lizz, Raquel, Nancy, Beth, Brenda, Sarah Jean, Cigi, Donna, Ellen, Heidi, Idette, Lori, Renee, and Kelly.

Stress Reduction for the Holidays

Wednesday, December 10th (6:30 – 8:30 pm) or Sunday, December 14th (12:00 – 2:00 pm) at Whole HealthChicago, 2522 N. Lincoln Ave, Chicago IL.

The Holiday Season can mean time spent with family and friends, work parties, social gatherings, and the closing of a year. Joyous occasions can also be stressful as to-do lists are longer and anticipation is greater. The closing of the year brings many deadlines, either professional ones that must be met, or personal goals to close the year. For others, the joy of the holidays is overshadowed by a feeling of loneliness, or the loss of a loved one.

Stress Reduction for the Holidays at WholeHealth Chicago will address anxiety and stress that manifest uniquely in each person. Mindfulness and meditation will be used to acknowledge the mental or emotional stress of the holidays, and reestablish a sense of gratitude, contentment from within, and a vision of yourself closing out the year. Gentle movements and breathing techniques will be used to see where we hold tension and stress in the body, and discover how we can open and unlock healing energy.

Pre-registration and payment upon registration is required, as space is limited. To register, call (773) 296-6700.  Price- $30

Renee Zambo is the instructor.
