Your pain ends here

You’re not feeling like yourself lately. We can help. Our dedicated medical team specializes
in the following health conditions:

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and apathy. It affects how you feel, think, and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.


Postpartum depression is moderate to severe depression in a woman after she has given birth. It may occur soon after delivery or up to a year later. Most of the time, it occurs within the first three months after delivery.


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction occurring after experiencing a highly stressful event (such as wartime combat, physical violence, or a natural disaster) that is usually characterized by depression, anxiety, flashbacks, recurrent nightmares, and avoidance of reminders of the event.


Anxiety is a persistent feeling of apprehension and fear, characterized by physical symptoms such as palpitations, sweating, and feelings of stress. Anxiety disorders are a group of mental illnesses including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.


Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder sometimes called manic-depression which involves cycles of depression and elation or mania. It is characterized by unpredictable changes in mood and impaired social function.


Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent obsessions or compulsions or both that cause significant distress, are time-consuming or interfere with normal daily functioning, and are recognized by the individual affected as excessive or unreasonable.


Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread pain, tenderness, and stiffness of muscles and associated connective tissue structures that is typically accompanied by fatigue, headache, and sleep disturbances.


Migraine headaches are recurring headaches characterized by severe throbbing pain, dizziness, and light and sound sensitivity during the acute phase. The disorder occurs more frequently in women than men, and a predisposition to migraine may be inherited.


CRPS a condition of unknown pathogenesis that causes chronic pain in part or all of the arms and legs. It is characterized by severe and often burning pain. CRPS is often accompanied by swelling, skin discoloration, abnormal sweating, and impaired motor function in the affected area.


Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease characterized by chronic inflammation of joints. Rheumatoid disease can also involve inflammation of tissues in other areas of the body, such as the lungs, heart, and eyes.


Peripheral neuropathy is a disease or degenerative state of the peripheral nerves in which motor, sensory, or vasomotor nerve fibers may be affected and which is marked by muscle weakness and atrophy, pain, and numbness.


Sciatica refers to pain or discomfort associated with the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs from the lower part of the spinal cord, down the back of the leg, and to the foot. Injury to or pressure on the sciatic nerve can cause the characteristic pain of sciatica: a sharp or burning pain that radiates from the lower back or hip, possibly following the path of the sciatic nerve to the foot.

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.”

This is how Alleviant Health Centers of Akron heals

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.

Counseling is the first step to healing the whole person as you journey to rediscover hope.

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.
