Transforming pain shared medical visit
The Transforming Pain Shared Medical Visit is a non-drug approach to treating chronic pain. It combines the latest evidence-based neuroscience understanding of chronic pain with the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The program uses group synergy, mindfulness, tai chi, qi gong and education to reduce your pain and improve your quality of life. The program consists of eight weekly visits of two and a half hours. There is also one follow-up appointment approximately eight weeks after program completion.
Good to know
The full program includes eight group visits, each lasting two and a half hours.
Before scheduling the group visits, we request that your first complete an individual intake visit with an integrative medicine provider to make sure this program is right for you.
There will be up to eleven other people in your program group. You and the group will learn new practices and develop new habits for coping with your pain.
There will be two providers involved in the weekly groups: an acupuncturist trained in traditional Chinese medicine and a provider trained in Western medicine.
