When we look inside our “toolbox” to help you, our focus is on safe, non-invasive, natural evidence-based treatments. While medications are important in a disease process it is not going to help you reverse disease process.

Cardiac rehabilitation is a clinically supervised program to help patients recover quickly and optimize their overall physical and mental health.

Heart disease is progressive, so our goal is to reduce the risk of a / another cardiac event (heart attack or stroke) or to keep an already present risk factor / condition from getting worse through risk factor modification strategies. Our Cardiac rehabilitation program includes treating patients with additional conditions such as diabetes, lung conditions and kidney disease.

Who comes to cardiac rehabilitation (rehab)
In our cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) program we see people who are in their 20s all the way up to their 80s. Heart disease does not discriminate; it knows no boundaries and can happen to anyone. Heart disease can present itself as coronary artery disease what we know as people who have suffered a heart attack, have an angioplasty or heart surgery. It can be people with valvular disease who have had heart valve repair or heart valve replacement surgery. It can be people heart failure, myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, pericarditis, or heart arrhythmias. People who have had a heart transplant or even those presented with angina.

Cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) is equally helpful to both men and women. It can improve your overall health and prevent future heart problems and even death.

Exercise is the best medicine. Our focus is to provide you with clinical personal training where we can monitor your heart rate, heart rhythm (ECG), blood pressure, oxygen levels and levels of fitness.

We help with accountability and/or confidence to ensure you get your best medicine. Our programs are tailored to suit your fitness goals, whether you are trying to climb a mountain, get back to playing a sport you love, or just being able to climb the stairs safely.
