Urban Zen Integrative Therapy



“Through Urban Zen Integrative Therapies, we help patients and families find the calm within the storm…(we are) treating the patient with the same passion as we treat the disease”
– Donna Karan, DKNY.
Founder of Urban Zen

IMAGINE a healthcare system where the patient is treated, not just the disease. A system where healing modalities such as yoga therapy, Reiki, essential oil therapy and contemplative care are integrated with mainstream, allopathic medicine in a holistic approach to patient and self-care. Donna Karan (DKNY) and Urban Zen foundation created the UZIT Program to meet this vision.


Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program (UZIT) trains members of the healthcare community in the healing modalities of yoga therapy, breath awareness, guided imagery, Reiki, essential oil therapy, nutrition and healing presence. The UZIT model is uniquely designed to treat the classic symptoms of stress and illness: Pain, Anxiety, Insomnia, Nausea and Constipation and exhaustion —PANIC. The PANIC model also has great benefits for pain and distress from other illnesses and for everyday challenges including insomnia, anxiety, and stress. This model is currently being used to specifically address these challenges with cancer patients who are in treatment at Beth Israel Hospital, Farber Center for Radiation Oncology and Hope House in New York City and UCLA in Los Angeles.

Mary attended the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program in New York City in 2011-12 in order to bring the PANIC model of integrative therapy to Colorado. She Did her clinical rotation at the Farber Center for Radiaton Oncology in New York City. She graduated in March 2012 and is now one of a few Urban Zen Integrative Therapists in Colorado.
