Rena Zaid

Calm Massage Therapy is pleased to announce its new affiliation with Rena Zaid, M.S., L.Ac, Dipl.Ac., owner of North Shore Chinese Medicine, at its Highland Park location.

Zaid, a board-certified acupuncturist, will provide acupuncture and other Chinese medicine treatments to promote wellness, facilitate healing and help individuals achieve mind/body balance. Acupuncture is highly effective for reducing pain, boosting energy levels, minimizing the side effects of cancer treatments and alleviating insomnia. It addresses the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, supports emotional well-being and works on a wide variety of concerns, such as addiction treatment, weight loss, smoking cessation and facial rejuvenation. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine offer a powerful, yet natural and safe, way to bring harmony to the whole body.

In addition to her Chinese medicine education, Zaid holds a bachelor’s degree in behavioral sciences and a master’s degree in counseling. She is committed to helping people through challenging situations, and administers patient care with kindness, respect and compassion. Since many people are interested in acupuncture and Chinese medicine and want to learn more about treatment choices for their particular issues, North Shore Chinese Medicine offers free consultations.

“I chose to affiliate with Calm Massage Therapy Center because of its beautiful healing environment, large tranquil rooms and the Center’s embrace of Chinese medicine as an important healing modality,” says Zaid. “I think it is important to take the time sit down, listen to people, find out what is going on, answer questions and see if acupuncture is the right approach for their health concerns.”

Location: Calm Massage Therapy Center, 467 Roger Williams Ave., Highland Park 60035. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 847-809-1200 or visit
