Sunday is designed as a day to rest and recover from your travels. You are about to enter into a two-week program to jump start your body into a new level of health. Being rested, well fed, and acclimated to the beautiful desert will be a great way to start your program.
What about meals?
All your plant-based meals will be provided by Westward Look. (Lessons in food preparation for your return home are available through coordination with our program! You will love the way you feel with this new and health way of eating!)
Medical Tourism Treatment Program
The treatment program begins on Monday morning. Westward Look shuttle will take you to our institute just 1/2 mile away.
You will receive photomodulation therapy and acupuncture treatments from our program developer and director Steve Liu every weekday of the program. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday will also include a movement session with our program movement therapist Joe Pinella, and Tuesday and Thursday will conclude a 45-minute neuro-massage session from our massage therapist Maria Mitchell.
In the second week, our plant-based nutrition coach, Karianne Croy, will begin to meet with you. At this point you will have been eating a plant-based diet for one week! This will give you an excellent base from which to work with Karianne on a new kitchen, shopping, and eating lifestyle.
The Institute’s motorized bicycle will also become available for your use at this time. Assisted Rapid Leg Movement is an excellent way to increase energy, vitality, and most importantly – dopamine production!
A New Life at Home
Home support is KEY! At the end of your 2 (or 4) weeks your body will have gone through a rigorous brain laser/acupuncture regime and learned new ways to move and eat. All of these steps are designed to take your body into new levels of health. Now it’s time to think about maintaining that health and building on the foundations of the program.
New Home Lifestyle elements include:
- Home LED transcranial and intranasal light unit for daily treatments you can do on your own in the convenience of your own home
- Kybounder mat for continual core muscle development to enhance mobility
- Personalized movement program through Joe Pinella’s DVD – “Healing Movements System”
- Theracycle 200 motorized bike with personalized exercise program
- Follow up sessions available through Karianne for on-going inspiration on how to eat a healthy, plant-based diet
- Recommendations for types of massage that will be most beneficial to your body’s specific needs
At the end of the program we will also supply for you a list of practitioners and resources in your area that can help you maintain your changes with us. This resource list will be a work in progress throughout your stay. We will also be happy to contact your requested practitioners in your area directly to explain how they can best offer you on-going support.
Follow up visits to our institute are strongly recommending for optimal quality of life care. Come back and see us regularly for continued treatment, new ideas, supplemental changes, and a chance to experience more of what Tucson has to offer!
Make the investment in yourself TODAY and take the first steps into a world of health, support, and a healing team that cares.
