The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) is a 501(c) (3) non-for-profit organization whose mission is:

To improve the quality of life for people with chronic pain and prevent development of medical pathologies in children.

GWI has a vision of building stronger and healthier families by focusing on existing medical pathologies in adults, AND preventing those pathologies from developing in our children.

  • further and support the promotion of health and health care, and the use of therapeutic massage as a treatment modality for diseases such as fibromyalgia, hypertension, peripheral vascular disorders, headaches, Parkinson's Disease, lower back pain and sciatica, bronchial asthma in children, and lymphatic drainage in cases of the immune system deficiencies;
  • sponsor, conduct, and further medical research and medical education as it relates to therapeutic massage and remedial gymnastics; and to
