Meet the Founders of Soder World
From the beginning there was something magical, even synchronicity, which kept driving us toward the manifestation of our center.
We love to share our Story & Experience
Eric, during his years as a professional baseball player always pioneered alternative ways to better his career such as, Hypnotherapy, Bio-Feedback and Nautilus strength training. After a successful career in professional sports and business, Eric felt it was time to share this knowledge and give back. At that time Daughter Misty, found her life’s passion when she graduated from the in San Diego School of the Healing Arts and worked at Deepak Chopra’s Center for Well Being. Her passions lead her to study and teach all forms for massage and alternative healing. Son Chad, brought a mad-scientist perspective to the mix helping to create some of the unique offerings at the center.
Finally, Mom Ginny, the rock and matriarch of the family, helped to bring it all together with her business acumen and love for helping others. After a week at the Chopra Center, the family sat around the kitchen table and imagined creating a world-class healing arts center back in Chicago. In 1997, Soderworld Healing Arts Center was born. Our early success made us quickly outgrow the small strip mall and through a series of cosmic events, the property we are currently housed became available (great story if you want to hear it).
Live with peace, prosperity, joy and abundance.
Sincerely, The Soderholm Family
