New Edgewater Wellness Center Opens Inside The Historic Colvin House

Therapist Dov Epstein

A new wellness center will be moving into part of the Colvin House (5940 N Sheridan), a mansion that recently received an overhaul and became an Edgewater co-working space. The new business promises not only to provide holistic healing to its customers but also provide a fair living wage to the therapists who work with the center.

According to an announcement from Sage and Healer; the business has been years in the making by the founder and owner Dov Epstein who is a licensed massage therapist, Reiki practitioner and esthetician. Since a child he has been helping heal those around him and it was only natural that this would be his calling.

Through the years Epstein has performed many roles including CNA psych nurse, hospice worker, and in nursing home assisted care. As he began his pursuit to become a registered nurse, a class in massage therapy changed his course. He soon started training in skincare and then ultimately found his passion in reiki.

“I found that Reiki was directly aligned with practices from my martial arts training that I took up concurrently with my dance training in college and in fact, was complimentary to it,” says Epstein, “when I took up the task of opening Sage and Healer, I decided to make Reiki a highlight in the menu of our services offered.”

Sage and healer will be holding an open house next week on Sunday, April 18 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at their new home in the Colvin Mansion. All covid protocols will be followed during the event which includes lite bites, music, free chair massages and small group tours. RSVP at adme.lmt@gmail.com
