Brighton Wellness Clinic Blends Eastern and Western Medicine

Dr. Seetal Cheema, a board-certified physician in anesthesia and pain management, now offers holistic care in Cambridge and Brighton. Cheema combines her physician’s training with additional studies in Eastern medicine, including acupuncture and yoga, to help patients integrate resources for physical health, emotional growth and well-being.

“While working in a pain clinic, I found that simple measures and a multidisciplinary approach to treatment often yield the greatest changes in health,” says Cheema. “Specifically, I saw that acupuncture can provide relief for a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and insomnia.”

Cheema started her practice last September at Sollievo Massage and Bodywork, in Cambridge, and recently opened a clinic in Brighton that offers evening hours. Group and individual yoga classes are offered and discounts are available to veterans. Wellness education seminars will be held throughout the summer, and a young women’s wellness fair will be held in conjunction with the nonprofit The Butterfly Soul Initiative. This workshop is for teen women that would like to meet others in their community and learn tools for coping with stressful challenges.
