Nurses do not have any special privileges or access to medical physical and mental health. They access health benefits just like you and me.
With any healthcare regimen in the US, the first approach is always a Western methodology that, at times, does not fulfill the treatment needs. Nurses have been turning to alternative, more complementary, unconventional methods to manage their overall wellbeing.
Conventional Western medical benefits don’t necessarily pay for all alternative supportive treatments and therapies without restrictions. If a nurse felt that their physical health or psychological welfare would better be managed by chiropractic care, reiki, acupuncture, or even additional therapy sessions with a counselor, those are not considered within their healthcare plan and they would have to find ways to pay for them on their own.
So, the question is, “If nurses cannot pay to heal themselves holistically, how can they keep working to heal others?”
Hands Deliver provides financial assistance that supports physical and mental health that isn’t considered in their healthcare plans. We offer supplemental monetary support for the following services.
Psychological Counseling & Therapy - Nearly 30% (1 out of 4) of nurses suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the suicide rate is 23% higher than the national average.
Acupuncture - This Eastern alternative to Western conventional medical treatment provides a holistic approach that can minimize medicative care and support stress, reproductive concerns, and physical treatments.
Chiropractic Care - Nurses suffer from “musculoskeletal symptoms (MSS) with 57% experiencing lower back pain, Many studies now suggest that chiropractic manipulation is the most effective conservative treatment.
Reiki – Nurses are turning to reiki as complementary supportive treatments that work with integrated medical treatment plans. UCLA health studies reported 75% of nurses feeling “peaceful, calm and relaxed”, and about 38% mentioned that Reiki “grounded and focused” them.
