What others say about us…

“Medicaid should cover massage and acupuncture because there is very minimal risk and a high reward without expensive means of hospitalization; wellness can be more economic.”

“I feel a ray of hope upon entering the Chanda Center for Health, and my mood greatly improves after therapy. I struggled for two years to find such a warm and welcoming place where people understand the difficulties of life in a wheelchair. I can now work efficiently and enjoy a greater sense of myself in the community.”

“Too often, I feel as if my body is dead, devoid of sensation, but with the massage therapy I receive through The Chanda Plan, I have the opportunity to bring some sensation back to my body and the sense that I am functioning once again.”

“The Chanda Plan makes the world seem bigger and more possible while giving me the energy to explore it.”
