Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Offers Integrative Wellness Program

November 09, 2017

Compassion Podcast

Allentown, PA – Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network has developed an Integrative Wellness Program designed to help individuals with chronic illness or disability lead healthier lives. The holistic program strives to support the body’s ability to heal itself and reduce the need for other medical interventions.

Under the guidance of physiatrist Dr. Ayanna S. Kersey-McMullen, participants in the Integrative Wellness Program can benefit from an expanded menu of traditional and non-traditional care and treatment options. The program consists of four basic components: traditional medicine, psychology and wellness coaching, nutrition and physical therapy.  Based on the patient’s condition and goals, a program will be customized for them that may include meditation, Botox®, nutrition counseling and art wellness classes, for instance.

“Good Shepherd’s Integrative Wellness Program is based on the mind-body connection,” says Dr. Kersey-McMullen. “Our goal is to educate patients to be active participants in their health care. By offering a comprehensive team of rehabilitation professionals, including physiatrists, physical and occupational therapists, certified wellness coaches, dietitians, exercise physiologists and psychologists, we can look at the complete patient and create a program just for them.”

While the program is specifically designed for those with a chronic condition, anyone looking to improve their health is encouraged to participate. Patients with conditions such as diabetes, obesity, chronic pain, hypertension and general disability/deconditioning may find the program especially helpful.

For more information about the program, call 1-888-44-REHAB (73422) or visit GoodShepherdRehab.org.
