LIFESTYLE MEDICINE

We support the whole person – mind and body

Whether you are feeling unwell in one or more of the “Petals", out of balance, or just wish to optimize your health and well-being, we will meet you where you are on your journey to a healthy and fulfilling life.

We take a whole-body approach to health, healing and wellness at Release.

Our providers are skilled in the disciplines of functional and lifestyle medicine, determining the root cause of symptoms and illness by looking into multiple contributing factors such as your lifestyle, your environment, and your genes. Treatment is then developed based on individual results rather than a one-size-fits-all plan.

Lifestyle medicine helps individuals wanting to eliminate chronic symptoms & illness, those looking to make lasting changes by keeping their metabolic, hormonal, & gut health in balance, and anyone hoping to improve the way they feel inside and out.

We are all unique so there is no right size fits all strategy to optimum wellness. We will explore the wellness practices you are familiar with and introduce you to others that may fill some gaps in your holistic well-being routines. This is a good starting point, but boosting self-awareness to determine which work best for you is even more important. After all, what is medicine for some does not offer the same healing benefits or might even cause harm to others. As you sample and explore these wellness modalities, we will encourage you to notice and monitor your inner world to help you identify the foods, exercise regimens, and patterns of behavior that serve you and those that don’t, in order to make purposeful decisions.

Once established, we help you integrate your successful formula for well-being into your daily routines so that they become sustainable habits.

An engagement with our Lifestyle Medicine Providers encompasses:

A Partnership

You are the expert of you. We bring depth and creative knowledge of many wellness modalities, strategies and tools. Together we form a powerful team to optimize your well-being. 

Total Well-Being

Our practices are founded upon the 5 pillars of wellness: Physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual. They are all important. Often people focus on just one of these areas, typically physical wellness, but It’s important to ensure that we are caring for ourselves in all of these areas consistently to optimize well-being and stay in balance.

Root Cause

We will not focus on symptoms and fixing them, instead we search for root cause. We will work with you to investigate issues and imbalances that might be standing in the way of feeling amazing and living your best life.

Alternative Medicine

Our methods utilize alternative approaches, which focus on stimulating the body’s ability to heal itself rather than allopathic medicines. These strategies include energy healing, yoga, mindfulness, herbal supplements, essential oils, and many more.

InBody Composition Analysis

The InBody 270 measures and records your weight, skeletal muscle mass, and percent body fat. Simply stand on the device and hold the hand electrodes for 15 seconds. Safe, low-level currents are sent through your body through the hand and foot electrodes. The impedance the currents encounter is measured, and from there, your body composition is derived.

The InBody 270 goes beyond weight and measures how much lean mass you have in each body segment. The comprehensive report delivers meaningful results that can inform a plan to boost well-being. Scan every two – four weeks to monitor how your body is adjusting to dietary changes, fitness routines, and lifestyle modifications.

Your comprehensive report of results includes:

Muscle-Fat Analysis

Make the connection between Weight, Skeletal Muscle Mass, and Body Fat Mass to develop a plan to obtain your goals.

Segmental Lean Analysis

Get an in-depth analysis of your fat-free mass. Evaluate if you have a sufficient level of fat-free mass in each segment of the body (arms, legs, and trunk) and spot any imbalances between the limbs.

Basal Metabolic Ratel Metabolic Rate

Understand how many calories you naturally burn at rest to develop a unique nutrition plan based your activity level and personal health goals.

InBody Consultation with a Release Wellness Coach

Whether your goal is to boost well-being, lose weight or change your body composition, having an individualized and sustainable plan is key.

This 60 minute coaching session with one of our wellness experts begins with an InBody Composition Analysis. Your coach will review the results with you and discuss their importance as they relate to your health, movement goals and nutritional needs. The session will include a macronutrient recommendation to further assist you on your journey to attain your specific results.
