Our Partners

The following are institutions that we formally partner with, either to provide educational opportunities or wellness resources for our students.

 

Eight Dimensions of Wellness NorthShore University HealthSystems Integrative Medicine Center

We strive to expand the definition of healing to include the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual. We endeavor to create an environment in which both practitioner and patient are engaged in their own healing process and lifelong learning. We intend to serve as a new model for addressing health in this country.

Zen Shiatsu Chicago students have annual learning opportunites at the Integrative Medicine Center, to prepare themselves for participation in integrated therapeutic environments.

Hip Circle Studio

Hip Circle Studio

Malik Turley founded the Hip Circle Studio to meet the needs of women (and the people who love them) throughout every stage of life. Providing a blend of classes, services, resources, and community events, Hip Circle Studio is the place to be for you and your family.

Malik is a great neighbor and community leader within the Main Street neighborhood in Evanston.  Please take the time to visit her studio and familiarize yourself with the great womens' resources she offers.

True Nature Foods

True Nature Foods

At True Nature we strive to be a trusted source of natural foods and products.  From farmer to local grocer to you we make decisions based on the common interest of our customers.  We share in co-op communities by being a drop off site for two independently owned and operated farms: Farmer Tom's CSA and Family Farms. You are helping to support an ideal, a goal and a purpose: control of our food sources in the hands of the people.

Zen Shiatsu Chicago recognizes the need for local sourcing and locally-owned retail of wholesome, organic food.  We recommend that clients and students support True Nature, learn more about Community Sponsored Agriculture, and consider how agricultural methods impact personal and social health.
