Modern medical treatment meets natural medicine
Palm Beach Wellness Institute provides a blend of traditional and alternative medicine practices for a wide range of medical issues and chronic health conditions. Located in the heart of West Palm Beach, PBWI emerged from our founding physician’s desire to integrate the benefits of conventional medical treatment with holistic healing modalities.
“Through many years as a hospitalist at Good Samaritan Medical Center, I was able to see how often traditional medicine launched patients on a course of recovery. However, I also noticed that strictly conventional treatment neglected an important human component of healing: the connection of the mind and body working in tandem toward the desired wellness goal. Through PBWI we’ve launched a mission to integrate conventional and alternative approaches to healing. This intention allows us to develop personalized programs for each individual patient so that they follow a treatment program designed to activate the body’s natural ability to heal.”Dr. Karen Flannery, Founder, Palm Beach Wellness Institute
PBWI’s extensive network of practitioners creates a proactive integrative wellness team that addresses healing processes for the mind, body and spirit. With traditional medicine as the starting point, the PBWI team creates treatment programs that incorporate physical fitness and mindful movement, emotional stabilization and positive psychological focus, and spiritual alignment with the recovery journey. The combined result allows patients to experience both the physical healing outcomes they seek while also enjoying the emotional process of empowered recovery.
Science-based, evidence-backed methodologies form the foundation of all PBWI’s programs. From functional fitness to acupuncture, massage, nutrition, hypnosis, psychotherapy, and recovery coaching, PBWI’s commitment to the integration of science and alternative healing offers a strong program for any patient seeking to combine doctor’s orders with alternative ways of engaging the body’s innate resilience.
Our 3-phase approach to wellness creates an organized, balanced, and sustainable whole-health program delivered in a personalized setting of your preference. This may be in the comfort of home, hotel, hospital room, wellness center, or even a natural outdoor setting. With every patient we follow a thoughtful model that structures healing around easy-to-implement programs within the themes of 1) clarifying health and wellness goals, 2) strategizing a healing mindset, and 3) implementing a fully personalized integrative medicine program:
In Phase One of our approach we focus on your current health issues and objectives. Through assessments and personal history we identify your healing goals, recognize potential challenges, and design focused solutions to support the achievement of your most desired health and wellness outcomes.
Phase Two of the PBWI process combines mindset and movement. First, we teach you to create an empowered healing perspective based on elements of positive psychology, intentional living, and optimizing resilience. Then, we show you how to mirror the fitness of your mind with mood-boosting movement in your body.
Phase Three launches a fully personalized PBWI-designed integrative medicine program. Here, Dr. Flannery’s step-by-step healing recommendations direct your schedule of appointments with each specialist, creating a sustainable health and wellness regimen for all of your healing goals. At every point of care, Dr. Flannery reviews your progress and ensures that each treatment is safe and appropriate.
