A. PRESCRIPTION: HEALTH is your prescription for discovering what you can do to prevent or overcome disease through exercise, nutrition and stress reduction.
At PRESCRIPTION: HEALTH as a professional, I am qualified to design and implement an exercise prescription for healthy individuals as well as those with health challenges. Cancer, hypertension, Diabetes I and II, Obesity, Arthritis, Anorexia, Pregnancy, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Asthma, Post-Cardiac Rehab and Post-Orthopaedic Rehab are among the approximately 40 different populations I am qualified to train.
I also offer a Nutritional Program design that includes behavior modification techniques and nutritional guidelines specific to reach each client's health needs.
With a degree in Health Psychology, certification in Iridology/Nutrition, certification in Clinical Exercise and Personal Training from American Council on Exercise, as well as over 20 years experience in holistic medicine and over 2000 hours in exercise training, I am well equipped to meet the specific needs of varied health challenges. My approach to each client is holistic, as I recognize the whole person, mind, body, and spirit must be incorporated in a wellness program in order to achieve optimum health results. My programs include:
Consultation with body fat analysis and pre-testing for fitness levels
Pilates-based flexibility and core body strength training
Progressive Muscle Relaxation Training
Progressive Diaphragmatic Breath Training
Nutritional Counseling and Support
AT PRESCRIPTION: HEALTH, "COMPLETE HEALTH IS MY PERSONAL GOAL."
These are but a few of the health benefits gained through exercise and they are why everyone should view exercise as an enjoyable way to prevent and overcome disease.
