The Spaulding Rehabilitation Network has been providing Integrative Medicine – also known as Complementary or Alternative Medicine – long before the term came into popular use. Integrative Medicine emphasizes patient empowerment and functional performance. We believe that each person has the resources for recovery and for maintaining health. Techniques such as acupuncture, reiki, and massage therapy help patients harness the power of their own body, mind, and spirit to assist in recovery.
The goal of our Integrative Medicine services is to enhance therapy outcomes by providing you with options for alternative medicine techniques to be combined in conjunction with their current therapy. We aim to assist you with pain and stress management as well as improve flexibility and balance. We believe that learning self-management tools that utilize the healing resources of body, mind, and spirit can empower our patients to more effectively meet their goals.
Services include acupuncture, biofeedback, craniosacral therapy, energy psychology, hypnosis, massage therapy, myofascial release, reiki, t’ai chi, yoga, and meditation. In addition, targeted exercise classes for osteoporosis, arthritis and lower back strengthening are available.
Many people can benefit from Integrative Medicine techniques. These practices can enhance well-being, increase calm, improve sleep, and deepen relaxation. Integrative Medicine techniques are effective for many health issues including anxiety, arthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches, hypertension, insomnia, pain, Reynaud’s and other circulatory disorders, repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, stress and stress-related symptoms, mild traumatic brain injury and post-stroke recovery.
