Integrative Pain Management
Is pain stopping you from living a full life? Have conventional pain management strategies stopped working? Treat your chronic pain with an integrative approach. Modern medicines provide a diagnosis for your pain but only treat the symptom, not the cause. The best treatment plans are individualized, using both holistic and conventional medicine to help you regain control of your health.
At Akasha Center, we begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment of your pain with Dr. Bren Boston who will spearhead your program design and care. The first consultation begins with an in-depth physical and psychological examination. Your treatment plan is then executed with a team of specialists who understand your pain. The result is better control of your health, fewer flare-ups, and better pain management.

There are no magic wands to cure chronic pain. However, studies have shown that pain is not debilitating to people who know how to use their mind-body connection. The goal of our program is not to erase all pain, but rather to optimize the health of the pain generator (nerves, muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons, bones), provide mechanisms for reducing the pain, and help our clients to take the driver’s seat to leap over the obstacle of pain.
Patients should be ready and open to changing their lifestyle before starting Integrative Pain Management services at the Akasha Center. Patients who are dedicated to improving their health and embrace treatments fully see the best results.
The cost of this comprehensive service is $1250. This includes your initial assessment with Dr. Bren Boston and three one hour treatments with either physical therapist Danél Lombard, acupuncturist and Chinese medical doctor Yi Qiao or somatic therapist Kevin Kunkel depending on your specific treatment plan.
