OUR TEAM

He is also an assistant instructor of the Chicago branch of ICEAM under the direction of his teacher, Stephen Bonzak, L.Ac, and under the mentorship of ICEAM's founder Dr. Arnaud Versluys, L.Ac. Though Collin is a skilled acupuncturist, his real passion is the study and practice of classical Chinese herbology. His areas of special interest are dermatology and men's health issues. Outside of work, Collin enjoys riding his bike and hiking the Indiana Dunes with his wife and dog.

 

 

 

 

Nathan Paulus uses a combination of Shiatsu, Tui Na (Chinese massage), Acupressure and Trigger point therapy (myofascial structural work) in his sessions.   His strong ability to sense and move energy come from long standing Yoga and Tai Chi practice.   Sessions usually favor either a deeper connection to the subtle body, or rehabilitating the muscular body and structural issues.  The treatments almost always include some form of Yoga for diagnosis, treatment positions, homework and self-care.  Nathan is a believer in an individual’s capacity for self-healing, rather than relying on the notion of being “fixed” by someone else.  His treatments are designed to improve and compliment the process of self- healing.

Nathan strongly believes in teaching his clients how to care for themselves, how to make simple interventions effective in improving their lives.  His treatments are dynamic, and have been described as “half science and half magic.”  Nathan is effective at meeting clients with where they are at and working towards a common goal.
