    The Holistic Rehabilitation Unit is located at Chi Wellness Waltham Clinic in Waltham, Massachusetts. We have developed a unique treatment procedure that combines our TCM practices (including acpuncture, Tuina manipulations, herbal medicine and Chinese therapeutic exercises) with chiropractic treatment and physical therapy. We plan to help our disabled patients get their insurance to coverour holistic rehabilitative services.

    Our goal is to restore the natural balance of the mind and body, to regain lost function in a holistic and personalized way.

    We focus on the specific needs of patients struggling with disabilities due to three types of causes:

    1. Stroke

      A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is suddenly interrupted (the ischemic type) or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling blood into the spaces surrounding brain cells (the hemorrhagic type). The symptoms of a stroke include: sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech; sudden trouble seeing, in one or both eyes; sudden trouble with walking, dizziness or loss of balance and coordination; or sudden severe headache, with no known cause.

      We focus on treating chronic disabilities that result from stroke. They include hemiplegia (complete paralysis on one side of the body), hemiparesis (one-sided weakness), impaired movement, impaired motor coordination and balance, impaired reflexes, speech impairment, depression, numbness, pain, and other strange sensations. In addition, our treatment aims to prevent future strokes.

    2. Traumatic or Repetitive Injuries

      We provide treatment for disabilities caused by a broad range of soft tissue and joint conditions including the shoulder, hip, knee, ankle/foot and spine injuries, acute and chronic injuries, muscle imbalances, overuse injuries, post surgical injuries, post-traumatic injuries, sports injuries, repetitive injuries, such as "tennis elbow",and work-related injuries.

      Our personalized treatment helps patients restore normal function as well as to develop compensatory strategies in order to minimize their disabilities.

    3. Anxiety Disorders

      Anxiety disorders are conditions that fill people's lives with overwhelming anxiety and fear that is chronic, unremitting, and can grow progressively worse. Tormented by panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, flashbacks of traumatic events, nightmares, or countless other frightening physical symptoms, some people with anxiety disorders even become housebound.

      We provide holistic treatment that helps patients to re-connect their mind, body and emotions. We focus on alleviating disabilities:

      Panic Disorder- Physical symptoms include: chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, abdominal distress, feelings of unreality, and fear of dying.

      Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder- Repeated, unwanted thoughts or compulsive behaviors that seem impossible to stop or control.

      Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder- Persistent symptoms that occur after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event such as rape or other criminal assault, war, child abuse, natural or human-caused disasters and accidents. Nightmares, flashbacks, numbing of emotions, depression, feeling angry, irritable or distracted and being easily startled are common.

      Phobias (social phobia or specific)- Symptoms include: overwhelming and disabling fear of scrutiny, embarrassment, or humiliation in social situations, avoidance of normal activities, extreme, disabling, and irrational fear of something that poses little or no actual danger. The fear leads to avoidance of objects or situations and can cause people to limit their lives unnecessarily.

      Generalized Anxiety Disorder- Symptoms include: constant, exaggerated worrisome thoughts and tension about everyday routine life events and activities, always anticipating the worst, even though there is little reason to expect it, constant fatigue, trembling, muscle tension, headache, or nausea.
