Holistic Thinking for Anti-Aging Lecture in Las Vegas December 2009

Blatman Health and Wellness Center is dedicated to providing traditional and holistic pain and healing solutions. We’ve served Cincinnati and the tri-state area since 1988. Our team continues to improve patients’ lives by relieving and eliminating chronic pain and other conditions using the body’s natural capacity to heal.


No one wants to be in pain, and when you are, all you can think about is getting relief. However, pain has an essential function. Whether constant or sporadic, it’s your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong, even though the reason isn’t always obvious. And when the reason is obscure, it is not in your head, as is thought by many standard of care practitioners.

For instance, the cause of myofascial pain is tension deep within a muscle but transmitted or referred by free nerve endings to other areas of the body. Pain referral and even pain quality (the specific sensation) makes it difficult for the patient or their provider to identify the origin of the discomfort.


At Blatman Health and Wellness Center, we strive not only to relieve your pain but also to uncover the root cause and work towards eliminating it. We do this by supplementing traditional medical treatments with holistic therapies, such as dietary changes, exercises, and acupressure. Depending upon the patient and diagnosis, we may suggest proven alternative therapies or non-drug treatments to stimulate the mind and body’s natural healing power.

We believe patient education and support are the keys to sustained health. To this end, we’ll teach you techniques to manage and prevent pain long after you leave our office.

A holistic approach to diagnosing, treating, and managing chronic pain can greatly improve your quality of life now and into the future. The following topics reflect some of the most common conditions that Dr. Blatman and his colleagues treat. Learn how patients can find relief from troublesome and debilitating conditions without addictive prescription drugs and invasive procedures.


A holistic approach to chronic illness is essential for treating people with complex chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, ailments that go together for many patients. Dr. Blatman has expertise in these areas and has been an advisor to local fibromyalgia support groups for many years.

Blatman Health and Wellness Center treats adults and children with fibromyalgia through holistic techniques like massage and biofeedback. Patients also get guidance on incorporating exercise and nutrition into their regimens.


Do you have pain that no one has been able to figure out or help? Perhaps it feels like numbness, burning, sharp stabbing, or is difficult to describe. This condition is at least partly myofascial pain, which is from a lifetime of injuries to the myofascial tissues and muscle fibers that hold you together and allow for movements. If you suffer from most any kind of pain, especially what is resistant to standard of care treatment, don’t give up hope. See a myofascial pain specialist, like Dr. Blatman, for an evaluation and treatment. Even if you’ve suffered for years, you can most often successfully treat and reduce the pain.


Do you have headaches that don’t respond well to treatment? Most people with migraine or tension headaches have an underlying myofascial pain condition. If this applies to you, know that relief is within your grasp. The Blatman Health and Wellness Center offers comprehensive care for migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, and other headaches.
