About Heartwood

heartwood-entranceFounded in Evanston, Illinois, in 1999, Heartwood Center opened its doors in downtown Evanston with a community of twelve healing professionals.  Since then, our center has grown into a new location with more than twice the space and more than forty practitioners and teachers.  We offer a wide array of therapies and classes to provide a truly integrative approach to health.

Heartwood was conceived by founder Nancy Floy as a membership organization where practitioners could work together in a collaborative environment as they grew their practices. Sharing resources and supporting one another to increase business for all exemplifies Heartwood’s vision of an interdependent network of health and wellness specialists.

Our Mission

Heartwood is a community-based center committed to providing exceptional holistic health services in Evanston and the greater Chicagoland area. We provide a supportive and peaceful place for practitioners and teachers to grow their businesses; they in turn foster balance and harmony in the patients,clients and students who walk through our doors. We believe in an integrative approach to health that encompasses mind, body and spirit.


Heartwood is located in Evanston at the intersection of Dempster and Dodge. We are in a newly renovated accessible building with free parking available in our lot, two doors east of our building on Dempster.  Our beautiful center creates a serene, welcoming environment with attractive landscaping, slate floors and natural light. Those who visit describe it as a peaceful, uplifted space ideal for relaxation and rejuvenation.

We are easily accessible by public transportation. The Pace Bus #250 picks up from the Davis Metra/El Stop in downtown Evanston every 15 minutes and stops just down the block from our front door.
