Introducing SEE Alternatives Wellness Modules

We utilize SEE Alternatives Wellness Modules to provide additional education and non-pharmacological pain management tools.  Pain medication is very helpful in managing pain and we know that there are other tools and skills that are beneficial for patients.

Taking Command of Your Pain Module:
This module includes tools for becoming aware (SEE) of your pain and how it impacts you–body, mind, heart, and spirit. We have created multiple tools that are scientifically proven to improve pain management. When used regularly over time these tools can reduce the intensity of pain, reduce the amount of pain medication required, and improve mental and emotional states, just to name a few.

Taking Command of Your Stress Module:
Up to 98% of physical symptoms and chronic illness, including pain, is related to stress! Stress is a natural part of life. We will always have stress, but our stress does not have to have us.

To take command of your stress reaction, you must first be AWARE of your stress! Then you can take actions to minimize the impact stress has on your health and well-being. This module is designed to support you in Taking Command of Your Stress, which can dramatically impact your health and well-being!
