Manakai O Malama is the largest integrative health clinic in Hawaii and located in the heart of Honolulu. Manakai O Malama has departments of medicine, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, chiropractic, naturopathy, psychology and of course occupational therapy. The OT department was started in 2013 with a vision of providing health and wellness based services in a primary care setting to the clinic population. The OT department quickly became a missing link for many of the patients, providing services for patients who previously “fell through the cracks” and did not have the optimal outcomes despite seeking services in many different departments. Over the past 7 years the OT department has become integral in the care of the clinics’ diabetic/metabolic disorder, chronic pain and concussion populations. The OT department also works with upper extremity orthopedic patients, with a high population of active duty military, as well as, community dwelling geriatric patients. The medical providers regularly refer patients to the occupational therapy department who are struggling with their day-to-day activities and seeking alternatives to surgery, pharmaceuticals, psychology and even physical therapy.
Our treatments lie heavily in the biopsychosocial model, looking the patient’s physical impairments in addition to their mental status, emotional wellbeing, environments, cultural implications and any other relevant life factors that may be impacting their daily occupations and ability to thrive. Typical treatments range from development of life management skills, self care skill development, stress management, manual techniques, therapeutic exercise, modalities and development of individual healthy living plans. Our primary goal with all patients is to support, educate, and improve their ability to resolve and/or manage their symptoms independently.
We look forward to hearing from you!
