INTRODUCTIONS, PLEASE!Mari Stecker

Along with Dr. Edelberg, Mari Stecker is one of the three original co-founders of American WholeHealth which became WholeHealth Chicago in 1999. After graduating from the Midwest College for the Study of Oriental Medicine, she was one of the first recipients of licensure in acupuncture in the State of Illinois. Mari received National Board Certification from the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as well as hospital training in China. She has completed postgraduate studies in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

SHOULD I SEE HER? YES!

According to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, traditional Chinese medicine has been proven to successfully treat a broad range of acute and chronic medical conditions. This has created a professional partnership between acupuncturists and the conventional medical community as physicians refer an increasing number of patients for treatment. Among the numerous diseases and disorders helped using acupuncture are:

  • Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraine and Tension Headaches
  • Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
  • Low Back Pain/Sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, tendinitis, and carpal tunnel
  • Food/Seasonal Allergies (NAET allergy elimination technique)
  • Endometriosis, Menopause, PMS, Menstrual Disorders, Infertility
  • Colds and Flu, TMJ, Asthma

Let Mari’s expertise and experience support and guide you on your personal Healing Path.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

The diagnostic process in traditional Chinese medicine involves classical procedures of observation, listening, and questioning. It also includes testing the quality of pulses, appearance of the tongue, and sensitivity of body parts.

Once your condition has been evaluated in terms of traditional Chinese medicine, Mari will review your specific concerns and develop a treatment plan. This may include acupuncture, remedial massage, cupping, herbal medicine, and nutrition/dietary interventions.

The duration of each session is one hour. Depending on the condition you may need one or two visits per week. You will be regularly re-evaluated to determine the total number of treatments needed.

FROM MARI…

“I have immersed myself in the world of traditional Chinese medicine for almost twenty years, and continue to study and teach every day. But the real joy from all this is when I hear, ‘Hey, Mari, I think I’m finally feeling better!'”

Our Services

At WholeHealth Chicago we provide our patients with access to providers who use an integrative medicine/functional medicine model. Functional medicine is a real paradigm shift in the practice of health care.
