I had the good fortune to work with Dr Rakhshani for a five week period. I had a stroke last year and was still having balance and coordination issues. Dr. Rakhshani gave me yoga centered exercises which proved to be perfectly suited for helping me with lingering strength and balance problems. I am now able to climb up and down stairs without having to hold on to the rails. He also gave me some chanting exercises which helped open up the flow of energy in my body and also further activated my chakras.

Prior to visiting Dr. Rakhshani, I was diagnosed with Scoliosis. The condition had progressed to the point when I where I was in a lot of pain and my breathing and mobility was greatly affected. I had a great deal of difficulty climbing the stairs in my home and was constantly struggling with my balance. Understandably, I was very dejected on my first initial visit with Dr. Rakhshani, not to mention skeptical about whether he would be able to help me. After my initial consultation, I felt very comfortable with him. After my first session, I was quite impressed to say the least. The relief both mentally and physically was immediate.

I am 65 years old. retired, married male with two children. I had a top management position with a national restaurant, which came with many responsibilities and associated stress. I also lived an active and health conscious life. I ran for miles daily and even participated in the Boston Marathon. In 2005, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and in 2010 with secondary progressive MS. The condition by its nature, quickly became worse and started affectingly gait, posture, and balance; as well as causing other symptoms, such as muscle spasms, urgency to urinate, and chronic fatigue. I first visited Dr. Rakhshani on September 10, 2014 and have been seeing him every since on a regular basis. The mind-body therapies that I have recieved have been focused on preventing the progression of MS, restoring my functionality, and improving my quality of life. At times that i felt hopeless, Dr. Rakhshani was and continuously is searching for a new reason to battle this ailment. While we have not been able to reverse MS entirely yet, and i am not sure if that would be a realistic goal, I am delighted to say that all of my medical reports indicate that MS has been kept at bay. In addition, I feel: 1) I have more energy, 2) I am now able to walk upright and with canes rather than with walkers and scooters, 3) my urgency for urination is dramatically improved, and 4) I feel I have better balance and less muscle spasms. But perhaps the greatest change in me is my perspective toward life, which has lead to fewer hurts of anger and much improved quality of life. I am NOT writing this to sell Dr. Rakhshani’s services, rather to encourage you to seek alternative care with him or any other qualified practitioner. While western medicine focuses on treating the symptoms and at times that is necessary, the eastern medicine for centuries has been geared toward removing the root causes of the ailments. I wish I had seemed alternative care before MS had started its progression but I am happy that I did eventually because I could have lost a lot more functionality. If you have been recently diagnosed with MS, please don’t take the disease casually. If the root causes, not just the symptoms that medications treat, are not addressed properly, the loss of functionality can be swift and devastating. If you have any questions and wish to speak with someone who has battled this disease for over a decade now, please feel free to contact me (828) 545-0671.

When I came to see Dr. Rakhshani, I had no idea what I needed to be well again. I only knew I needed guidance and support, which I hadn’t been able to find anywhere else, and that is exactly what he has offered me. With his kind, gentle, and very supportive coaching, I am regaining my health and now have hope for the future. You don’t need to have all the answers or have it all figured out. You only have to show up and be willing to listen and try.
Before I met Dr. Rakhshani, I had very little hope that things in my life could change, but he has opened my eyes in many ways and given me the tools I need to walk a different path. I may struggle with this new path from time to time, but I will always be eternally grateful that he has shown me a better way. And I will always strive to make the things he has shown me a permanent part of my life.

If you are struggling with any aspect of your life you owe it to yourself to book some time with Dr. Rakhshani. He is caring, intuitive and deeply knowledgable. He provides you tools that empower you to heal your wounds….wounds of both body and spirit. Highly recommended.

Late fall of 2016 I knew I needed to make a life change. Years of 50+ hour work weeks and a significant car accident had caught up with me. I was experiencing increased pain, trouble sleeping, and diminished engagement in the things I enjoyed (to name only a few repercussions).
Dr. Rakhshani has helped me tremendously in finding life balance again – his therapy massage techniques, coupled with his caring and accepting demeanor, has enabled me to not only move better and have less pain but also to mentally process and manage stress. He has helped me rewire my connections of mind, body, and spirit. Thank you, Dr. Rakhshani!!

Dr. Rakhshani has helped both my wife and me to make much needed changes in our diets, exercise, and attitudes. After struggling for years with her weight, my wife has lost 25 pounds without being hungry. My own hunger roller coaster has stabilized significantly. We are both stronger and happier. Dr. Rakhshani has a gift for knowing just what to say to help you get “unstuck.” Thank you, Dr. Rakhshani.

Dr. Rakhshani is the best. He really makes you feel relaxed after his massage. He really knows what he’s doing and he really caters to your needs. I was having back problems and after my massage, it felt like he put everything back into place. This is the best Holistic healing place I’ve been too. I recommend everyone come in and let him work his magic on you.
