Alternative Health Care

After attending her first World Burn Congress in 2001 with her mother Sally, Julie Spiegel, a nationally certified therapeutic massage and bodyworker, volunteered to provide FREE Massages to burn victims attending World Burn Congress the following year. Needless to say, a 3 page waiting list was quickly generated, and an additional therapist was recruited to serve the requests. Thus the Wellness Program concept was born.

This program introduced the benefits of Massage Therapy and other Alternative Modalities available to assist burn survivors in their continual search for relief from emotional and physical discomfort. (You can download a pdf of an article on this that first appeared in the Journal of Massage Therapy.) The Wellness Program is supported by a growing list of certified massage therapists. This initiative also ensures continued research and investigation of additional complimentary health care methods of healing.
