You’ll leave these sessions feeling ready to conquer anything life throws your way.
Learn more about the sessions
The first four sessions will help you work through everything you may be feeling in a positive, productive way. Once you wrap up these four, you can come back for monthly Empower Hour sessions about a variety of topics, including confidence, setting boundaries, self-care, and so much more.
Who should join The Empower Hour?
The Empower Hour is designed for kids and teens with scoliosis. It is open to both boys and girls. The recommended age range is 8-18. The Empower Hour will touch on all things scoliosis, so it does not matter what type of treatment you are doing for your scoliosis. Everyone will benefit!
When you sign-up for The Empower Hour, you can book the sessions individually or you can book all four sessions as a package and save $20. We highly recommend that you participate in all four Empower Hour sessions to get the most out of the experience! Each session is focused on a different topic that will help you navigate scoliosis and anything life throws your way. However, we acknowledge that scheduling conflicts may arise, which is why we offer the sessions individually.
