CELEBRATE HEALTH: A Multi-Disciplinary Program for the Treatment and Management of Chronic Pain 

The Cornerstone Wellness Center is pleased to offer this dynamic program that will include treatments with: Physical Therapy, Counseling, Movement Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Acupuncture. Participants will learn the powerful interplay between the mind and body and will practice valuable skills and strategies to empower oneself to increase wellness and promote healthy living.

With a referral from your doctor or medical provider, treatment will begin in Physical Therapy for evaluation and assessment of your individual needs (this service is covered by most major insurances); you will schedule appointments according to your goals. In conjunction with your individual Physical Therapy treatments, a 6-week small group (4 participants at a time) will be held twice monthly, for approximately one hour, that will include skill development and treatment with: Counseling, Movement Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Acupuncture. Cost of this 6-week program will be $150. We require a $75 deposit at the time of your registration for the program, which is refundable up to two weeks prior to the program start date should your schedule or needs change. The remaining $75 is collected during your initial group session. Our Spring/Summer 2019 session begins on May 15th and our Summer/Fall 2019 session begins on August 14th.

During your participation in this program, you will learn about the psychology of pain, as well as central sensitization, the circuitry in the brain that often contributes to persistent pain. You will learn lifestyle skills that include cognitive, emotional, and physical strategies to rewire the brain and minimize the negative impact of this cycle in the brain. You will also be given the opportunity to schedule individual sessions with Counseling to participate in Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which helps the body release endorphins (our "feel good hormones") and create new connections in the brain to minimize the intensity of your discomfort (also covered by most major insurances). 

At the start of the program, you will receive a folder with your welcome documents. At each session, you will receive comprehensive information from all providers that will include at home skills and strategies to promote sustained progress and results to add to your folder. At the completion of this program, during your final session, we will review progress and identify the components that were most effective and valuable to you. As participants of this program, you will be given exclusive opportunities to continue treatment with any of the providers at discounted rates. 

Here's to your health - we look forward to working with you!
