Lifestyle practices are important parts of understanding coronary heart disease. Research has shown that complementary medical approaches, when used in conjunction with traditional Western practices, can help guests recover from heart attacks and possibly help prevent coronary artery disease.
In the Mind/Body Studio, we focus helping guests change their lifestyle to create wellness and prevent issues, rather than waiting to treat specific symptoms as they arise.
To accommodate patient individuality, we offer a variety of complementary medicine services, including:
- Yoga of the Heart
- Tai Chi
- Relaxation classes
- Stress Management and individualized HeartMath programs
