Building on a 30-year history of interdisciplinary inpatient treatment of chronic pain (starting with a biofeedback-oriented, self-management philosophy inspired by Norm Shealy, MD), integrative medicine approaches at Spaulding have steadily spread to other inpatient and outpatient settings in recent years. A 2003 grant from the Victoria and Jacob Langeloth Foundation enabled these disparate initiatives to coalesce under the direction of Eric Leskowitz, MD, a psychiatrist and writer/researcher/practitioner in energy medicine. Current funding comes from the Maynard Family fund. Clinical care, education for healthcare professionals and patients, as well as research activities are features of this program.
Complementary practitioners from many modalities work with primary care physicians and medical specialists to provide patient care. Providers are qualified in their specialty.
