Wellness Institute Celebrates Fifth Anniversary with Second Location, High level of Certification for Professional Staff

Wellness Institute Celebrates Fifth Anniversary with Second Location, High level of Certification for Professional Staff

(BLUFFTON and HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.) As the Wellness Institute prepares to mark its fifth year in business, it is opening a Hilton Head Island satellite office and announcing that all three of its physical therapists have qualified to the fellowship and/or board-certified level.

Hours for the new 1,300-square-foot Hilton Head location at 1 New Orleans Road, Suite E, will depend on the demand from its clientele but will start with four afternoons a week.

Why the expansion?

“There is an increased demand from our existing island clients and a need for sports-specific rehabilitation for the tennis and golf community to have a convenient location. We decided to accommodate that with a Hilton Head Island location,” said Warner Peacock, CEO of Peacock Automotive, one of two partners in the Wellness Institute.

The Wellness Institute is a multi-faceted healthcare facility, headquartered at 100 Okatie Center Blvd. North, that offers physical therapy, rehabilitation, wellness instruction, personal training, massage, Qigong and martial arts instruction, yoga (both group and individual) and physical conditioning for golf and tennis.

Other special services include dry needling for pain, spine and peripheral joint manipulation, headache treatment, TMJ treatment, vertigo rehabilitation, medical massage and golf-specific myoskeletal stretching; tempering, cupping and instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation; kinesiology tape for soft tissue support and athletic taping for joint and ligament support; as well as pelvic health and personal training in both individual and small group formats. The same services, with the exception of pelvic health services, will be available at the Hilton Head Island location.

“No other company has an across-the-board level of expertise like this. Therapists at the Wellness Institute are among the most highly trained in the Lowcountry,” said Craig Weyer, who is a partner with Peacock Automotive in the Wellness Institute.

“Training to the fellowship level requires postdoctoral professional, one-on-one training under the direct supervision of leaders in the field. It is an intense program, and the qualification is held by fewer than one percent of practicing therapists,” he said.

Research on the effectiveness of fellowship-trained therapist finds significantly greater improvements were achieved in treatment than those treated by therapists without residency or fellowship training.

Fellowship status is granted by the American Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapists, which is a member of the International Federation of Orthopedic Manipulative Physical Therapists Board and the American Physical Therapy Association Section on Women’s Health.

The Wellness Institute’s professional staff includes:

*Lauren Lee is fellowship trained in manual therapy and holds a doctorate in physical therapy. She holds a diploma in osteopractic manipulation, as well as certification in dry needling and spine manipulative therapy.

*Andrea Schultz, a board-certified clinical specialist in women’s health physical therapy, holds a doctorate in physical therapy and sits on the national board of the Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy Committee. She also is certified in dry needling.

*Wade Welsh is fellowship trained in manual therapy and holds a doctorate in physical therapy. He is a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist and holds a diploma in osteopractic manipulation. He is certified in dry needling and spinal manipulative therapy. Wade is also certified in LSVT Big program for Parkinson’s Disease and Otago Exercise Program for Fall Prevention.

*Craig Weyer is fellowship trained in manual therapy, holds a doctorate in physical therapy and is a certified orthopedic manual therapist. He holds a diploma in osteopractic manipulation and certifications in dry needling, spine manipulative therapy and athletic training. Additionally, he holds degrees in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science.

Peacock Subaru Donates $4,875 to Greater Bluffton Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine

(HARDEEVILLE, S.C.) Peacock Subaru has donated $4,875 to Greater Bluffton Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine as part of the annual Subaru Share the Love event.

The funds were raised during November and December 2018. Each Subaru buyer could decide whether to donate a portion of the purchase price to a national charity or Peacock Subaru’s hometown nonprofit, the local chapter of Volunteers In Medicine.

Volunteers with the organization provide care to community members in Bluffton and Jasper County who are without medical insurance.

“It’s donations like these that give us the freedom to stop worrying about how we can do it and to start focusing on the people who need it,” said Dennis Toney, director of development for Bluffton Jasper County VIM. “We have outstanding nurses and physicians who donate their time and expertise, but it’s imperative that we have the financial assistance to make a difference, and Peacock Subaru just made that possible.”

The donation will go toward the daily operations of the organization, which is run by approximately 90 volunteers.

Peacock Subaru General Manager Ken Kirby presents the Subaru “Share the Love” check to Bluffton-Jasper County Volunteers In Medicine Director of Development Dennis Toney.

Peacock Subaru and Palmetto Animal League Featured in Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XV

Peacock Subaru and Palmetto Animal League Featured in Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XV

(JASPER COUNTY, SC) Peacock Subaru in Hardeeville, S.C., was jammed Sunday afternoon with several hundred people who turned out for a watch party for Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl XV.

Peacock Subaru was featured in Puppy Bowl XV to give national recognition to adoptable pups currently under the care of the Palmetto Animal League.

Included in the turnout was a puppy named Cameron, pictured with Jill Jauch with Peacock Automotive and Brendan Peavy with the Palmetto Animal League.

Included in the turnout was a puppy named Cameron, pictured with Jill Jauch with Peacock Automotive and Brendan Peavy with the Palmetto Animal League.

Animal Planet crews were in the area in December to film puppies between 3- and 6-months old at the dealership and PAL’s facilities. Footage from the shoot was incorporated into vignettes aired as commercial messages for Subaru during Puppy Bowl XV. Subaru of America picked Peacock Subaru for the spots because of its involvement with local animal welfare organizations.

The Palmetto Animal League brought adoptable dogs to Sunday’s party. Supported solely by individual donors and “Partners in Rescue” such as Peacock Subaru, PAL’s no-kill shelter serves as a temporary residence for about 200 dogs and cats.

The puppy bowl began when Animal Planet, a cable network focused on animal-themed shows, confronted the question of what to program against the Super Bowl with a mock football game featuring puppies playing on a gridiron-marked rug. The idea caught on and now attracts millions of viewers. Since its inception, the program has starred adoptable puppy “players” and has since added kitten “cheerleaders” and other pets looking for a hom.

Subaru is a national sponsor of Puppy Bowl XV.

ABOUT PALMETTO ANIMAL LEAGUE
Palmetto Animal League is a private, non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization that saves abandoned, abused and neglected pets and places them in loving homes. Visit PAL’s adoptable cats and dogs at their adoption center, located in Okatie’s Riverwalk Business Park, Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. These are Lives Worth Saving.

22nd Annual Southern Coast Heart Ball Set for Feb. 2

By | Local NewsWIRE

22nd Annual Southern Coast Heart Ball Set for Feb. 2

(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.) The American Heart Association (AHA) will host the 22nd Annual Southern Coast Heart Ball on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 6 p.m. at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.

The annual black-tie gala, chaired by Catherine Donaldson of Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty, will celebrate life-saving advances made in the Lowcountry over the last 22 years. Donaldson is chairing in honor of her husband, who served in the U.S. Army Reserves and died of a heart attack in 2016.

“This year’s theme is very special to the Southern Coast community. It represents our heroes in the community, from our veterans and survivors to our caretakers and first responders, and that is the American Heart Association’s mission, to end heart disease and stroke,” Donaldson said.

The Southern Coast Heart Ball will bring together more than 400 guests from the corporate, philanthropic and medical communities to celebrate 2018’s accomplishments while raising funds to further the AHA’s mission.

Guests will enjoy an evening of dining, dancing and live entertainment as well as live and silent auctions.

The event will celebrate the heart association’s mission, supporters and volunteers while honoring lives saved or improved because of the work of the AHA and the generosity of the Lowcountry and Savannah communities. In addition, guests will hear the story of Lilly Cochran, who was born with several congenital heart defects. The event also will honor her father, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, who had heart disease.

Thanks to the generosity of local institutions and businesses such as Legacy Sponsor Audi Hilton Head and Signature Sponsor Hilton Head Regional Healthcare, the Heart Ball is able to fund cardiovascular research, professional and public education, school site programs and advocacy efforts throughout the year.

Despite advancements in the fight against heart disease and stroke, heart disease remains the number one cause of death among U.S. citizens. In South Carolina, strokes are the fifth-leading cause of death. Nationally, nearly 2,200 people die each day from cardiovascular disease, an average of one death every 39 seconds.
