What Do We Do?

We offer a number of different services to help you achieve optimum health.  It is up to you to choose which services you feel will be most helpful in getting your life back to ideal.  Here is a brief overview of what we can offer:

Cardiology – we work with the finest physicians to ensure you're provided with the highest level of care for your heart condition.  Our physicians understand the importance of treating your whole body, not just your heart.  Our physicians want to make sure that they not only keep you healthy but make sure you enjoy the highest quality of life.

Nursing – Nursing will supervise your rehabilitation program.  They will monitor your program to ensure your safety during your rehabilitation.  Nursing can also provide you with education regarding your condition, medications, and any symptoms you may be having.

Physical Therapy - Physical therapy works to restore your strength and endurance.  Our therapists focus on getting you back to doing not just routine activities but also the activities that you love.

Psychology – Psychology will help you to deal with the mental aspects of your disease.  Psychology can also help with everything from depression and fear of dying to overcoming bad lifestyle habits.

Nutrition – Nutrition is a cornerstone to improving your cardiac health.  Our nutritionist will work to design you a program that fits your individual lifestyle.

Massage Therapy - Massage therapy is now substantiated by research to help decrease stress and blood pressure.  Our therapists will help improve your health, release tension from your muscles and improve your overall well-being.

Pharmaceuticals are Important but…

Pharmaceutical treatments are an important part of any cardiac rehabilitation program.  Pharmaceuticals are capable of accomplishing amazing things in your body.  But most are not designed to permanently solve problems. Pharmaceuticals are designed to treat symptoms but often do little, or nothing, to address the root cause of the problem.  Without correcting the root cause of the problem, can you expect your health to truly improve?  Continuing to eat poorly, avoiding exercise, and engaging in poor lifestyle choices will only ensure continued degradation of your health.  Pharmaceuticals all have side effects.  Many of these side effects are debilitating.  Pharmaceuticals are also costly.  You need to address the factors that have brought you to this point in your life.  It's time to correct problems instead of simply ignoring them or masking them with medications.

Improve Your Quality of Life

Our program will not only help you to improve your nutritional habits, strength, functional abilities, mental health, and endurance but we will also return you to your leisure activities, restore your confidence, and improve your sense of well-being. Having a heart condition is a serious medical situation but it does not need to ruin your life.  Our program will not only help you to live longer but it will help you to live better.
