Dear friends/neighbors,

I want to tell you about a wonderful place and doctor who has helped me to begin to manage the tremendous chronic, phantom limb pain that I have been experiencing since my accident. The holistic doctor’s name is Howard Weissman and his office is called the Chicago Stress Relief Center. The web address is

Dr. Weissman provides all of his patients with a free “Stress Consultation” in either his Chicago or Northbrook office. Dr. Weissman is personable with a great bedside manor.

One of the most amazing treatments in Dr. Weissman’s arsenal is the “sensory deprivation flotation tank.” The only way to describe the experience in this salt water pitch black chamber (salinated to the consistency level of the Dead Sea), which is heated to your exact body temperature, is to compare it to floating in a zero gravity chamber, completely weightless without stress on any bones or joints in your body. Being in this chamber is the only true pain relief that I have experienced since my accident and I credit Dr. Weissman’s treatment methods with enabling me to reach this point in my recovery.

Dr. Weissman specializes in all aspects of stress and pain management and has been instrumental in guiding me to start to manage my chronic pain.

I highly recommend Dr. Weissman who can be reached at (847) 412-0922.
