What types of Wellness Education does Dr. Breunig do?
I do two types of wellness education:
- In-office education with clients
- Public speaking to groups
With a client in my office, we discuss posture, exercises, and home self-care. For example, for a client with lumbar disc dysfunction, I often recommend backward bending exercises, hamstring stretches, and hip flexor stretch. I will phase in the exercises according to the client's level of pain and stage of recovery (acute, rehabilitation, or maintenance). We may discuss whether to use ice or heat or both. If appropriate, an acute homeopathic remedy may be recommended for an acute problem. Many nutritional products are appropriate to promote healing and reduce inflammation. I teach you how to get well and stay well!
During my 21 years in practice, I have done public speaking on various topics. I am an enthusiastic advocate of alternative healing methods and enjoy making them available to people through my health care talks. Below is a sampling of groups with whom I have spoken:
- University of Minnesota Libraries: staff symposium
- North Country Food Cooperative: staff in-service
- Minnesota Association of Rehabilitation Providers
- Regions Hospital Fibromyalgia Support Group
- United Steelworkers of America, "Women of Steel" group
- Neighborhood Involvement Program: staff in-service
- Herbalist Guild
- Aspen Medical Clinic: staff continuing education
- 3M Cancer Support Group
- American Cancer Society
