Occupational Therapist

Deb Fraine is a graduate of Tufts University, Boston School of Occupational Therapy. She completed a Masters Degree in Healthcare Administration at Salve Regina in 2015. She has been a Certified Hand Therapist since 1999. She has been trained through the STAR program founded by an oncologist from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the comprehensive rehabilitative care of clients with cancer diagnoses. Deb is a registered Yoga instructor and has been teaching yoga in the local area for 4 years. She is certified in Accessible Yoga and Y12SR- yoga for recovery from addictions. She is a reiki level II practitioner. Deb is the director of the New Bedford Wellness Initiative yoga program. She started the Occupational therapy/ Hand Therapy department at Hawthorn Medical Associates in Dartmouth, MA and was formerly the manager of the Hawthorn Medical Rehabilitation department. She continues to see patients with upper extremity conditions including acute post surgical shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand at this location.  She is experienced in fabricating custom post surgical and fracture splints.  She has always dreamed of having her own private practice in which the patient is treated with as much time and care as they need to expedite recovery, prevent further injury  and facilitate an optimal mind- body connection for life- long wellness. She is looking forward to integrating her yoga skills, reiki, mindfulness and other modalities which may not be typically covered by insurance payers. With the freedom from the cumbersome insurance billing and documentation systems of modern outpatient clinics, a cash based, fee for service practice will allow direct access to patients to facilitate expedient recovery and return to a productive balanced lifestyle.
