Ketamine Infusion Therapy

Ketamine Infusions are an effective treatment for mood disorders and certain pain conditions.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

TMS is a non-invasive procedure for treatment-resistant depression. It delivers magnetic impulses through an electromagnetic coil to the prefrontal cortex, the region of the brain associated with mood control. TMS helps nerves begin to communicate again and reinforces positive nerve pathways. Therapy takes place five days a week for four to six weeks. Each treatment lasts less than 4 minutes. TMS is FDA-approved for treatment-resistant depression. We preauthorize patients to make sure that their insurance is accepted.

Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) 

Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) is a single constant 39-second train of impulses that inhibits neurons on the right side of the dorsolat­eral prefrontal cortex (mirror image of spot targeted for depression). It rapidly alleviates anxiety and, combined with standard TMS treatments, yields a much higher success rate in healing depression.

Massage Therapy

Massage brings many benefits to those struggling with both chronic pain and depression or anxiety. It improves circulation, increases endorphins, reduces stress hormones, relieves muscle tension and pain, and increases mobility. Perhaps most importantly, massage provides an opportunity to slow down, pause, and concentrate on getting in touch with your body and the power it has to heal itself from within. Our experienced massage therapists are here to help you with a variety of modalities to meet the physical, mental, and emotional needs of your overall healing. 

COVID-19

COVID-19 Antibodies Test

The COVID-19 antibodies test is a blood test taken through a lab draw at our clinic that screens your blood for antibodies to the virus – your body’s response of building up the immunity to infection. Through this test, we will be looking for IgG antibodies, which are more likely to show up later after you’ve recovered. Please note that current antibody tests can’t tell you if you’re fully immune to COVID-19 and are not used to diagnose the virus. Our current patients can have the test billed directly to insurance. All other patients will be provided a superbill to be reimbursed via the CARES Act.

If you are interested in this testing, please call us at 330-754-4844.

Strong feeling of relief

“I have been depressed since the age of 10. That was when I made my first suicide attempt. I’ve been on more than 15 anti-depressant medications and gone through many different therapies. For years, I had almost constant thoughts about suicide. I knew about TMS from previous research, and after I heard an ad for Alleviant on the radio, I was at the clinic within a week. Nick and his staff were all very professional and kind and made me feel very much at ease. After 8 or 10 sessions, I realized that I wasn’t thinking about killing myself anymore. Now I am no longer stressed and have a strong feeling of relief. “

So fortunate I found Alleviant!

“I am so fortunate that I found Alleviant Health! Dr. Molina has helped me so much. He talks with me in ways I understand and that means a lot to me. Julie is also able to help me with understanding how to better help myself ! A great team is here to help!“

Ruthann M.

The pain from my rheumatoid arthritis is pretty much gone!

“The pain and inflammation from my rheumatoid arthritis is pretty much gone. For years and years, I always have this nauseous feeling especially when I wake up in the morning and I have a hard time eating. So when I do feel like eating I binge eat and so I gained a lot of weight doing that. That’s all gone, and the treatments have reduced my anxiety and my anger mood swings.”

Jason M.

My boyfriend was previously prescribed Suboxone but this helped him come off of it!

“By my boyfriend’s second treatment, his agoraphobia, pain, limp, and depression were gone, and he continued to improve for the last four. Just a different person, the person I fell in love with. He was previously prescribed Suboxone but this helped him come off of it.”
