WELCOME TO THE BRESLER CENTER

The Bresler Center was established in 1989 by Dr. David Bresler, the founder and former Executive Director of the UCLA Pain Control Unit. Dr. Bresler was one of the first American scientists to seriously investigate and validate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) during his tenure as Associate Clinical Professor in the UCLA Schools of Medicine, Dentistry and the UCLA Department of Psychology. As a result, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Academy for Pain Management, and was appointed by President Clinton as a White House Commissioner on CAM Health Care Policy.

Dr. Bresler has served on the editorial staff of eight professional journals and is listed in several editions of Who’s Who and The Best Doctors In America. His numerous radio and TV appearances have made him a well-known authority in the field of mind/body medicine, and he’s been featured or interviewed in many popular magazines, including Time, Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, People, US, and Prevention.

The Bresler Center provides state-of-the-art patient care under Dr. Bresler’s direct supervision, utilizing a variety of mind/body medicine approaches, including acupuncture, psychotherapy, EMDR, interactive guided imagery„ , biofeedback and relaxation training, therapeutic massage, transcranial stimulation and electrotherapy, medication management, as well as nutritional and herbal therapies (see Services). Our staff works closely with patients and their family members, and has exceptional success in treating persistant pain, addiction, trauma, anxiety and stress, grief and depression, and chronic fatigue when all other approaches have failed (see What We Treat).

Dr. Bresler is an outstanding diagnostician and with his vast experience in evaluating a wide variety of pain, stress, and trauma related symptoms, he is often able to diagnose and treat problems when other health care practitioners have been unsuccessful. Dr. Bresler and our staff members also conduct clinical research and teach a variety of courses for both health care professionals and the public.
