Ancient Healing: An Evening of Acupuncture and Shamanic Healing

Thursday, September 20, 6-7:30pm
Registration: $65

Join Katie Oberlin, shamanic healing practitioner, and Mari Stecker, licensed acupuncturist, for a special evening of healing in preparation for the autumn equinox.

In both Traditional Chinese Medicine and shamanism, autumn is a time to celebrate the harvest. This pertains to crops as well as other things that we grow and nourish such as ideas, dreams, relationships, our bodies, and the fruits of our labors.

It is also a time of change as the living world begins to wind down and we reflect inward on our life’s path. There is great potential for healing as we release what no longer serves.

This event is sure to be a unique opportunity to experience the ancient traditions of acupuncture and shamanic healing blended into an evening of relaxation and renewal.

After a shamanic opening ceremony, participants will receive an acupuncture treatment to encourage deep relaxation. The evening will continue with other features of shamanism including healing songs, drumming and other energetic clearing and alignment techniques. We’ll end the evening with a closing ceremony and time for integration to support moving forward with health, vitality and gratitude.

You will be lying on yoga mats so please bring a pillow and blanket to ensure your comfort.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Registration online only.

  • New Hope For Sinus Sufferers

    When osteopath Dr. Rob Ivker moved to Colorado in the 1980s to set up his family practice, he had no idea that when he stepped off the plane he’d succumb to symptoms of chronic sinusitis that just wouldn’t go away: stuffy nose, thick mucus, pressure behind his cheekbones and above his eyebrows, dull aching headache, and thick goopy drainage in the back of his throat.

  • Director of IV Therapies Katie McManigal, BSN, ANP

    Most people at some point in their lives have had an intravenous (IV) line. An adept nurse warned you about the tiny pinch of the needle as it was smoothly inserted and taped in place.  Then the  fluid dangling above your head slowly started making its way through a tube and into your body. IVs are all over the place in hospitals. They’re seen in Read More

  • Welcoming Sandra Subotich to WholeHealth Chicago

    Normally, when I write a welcome Health Tip announcing a new WholeHealth Chicago practitioner, I go right to the person’s biography to illuminate why you might consider making an appointment. Dr. Sandra is a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and her bio is rich with detail, so I’m saving it for the end. First, I asked her to tell me about a recent patient Read More
