SUSTAINABLE WELLNESS THROUGH PERSONALIZED HOLISTIC HEALTH CARE
HOLISTIC REHABILITATION UNIT
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:
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.
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
Our personalized treatment helps patients restore normal function as well as to
develop compensatory strategies in order to minimize their disabilities.
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.
