Wellness Programs
Executive or Medical Health Check Up programs are a convenient, cost-efficient and comprehensive way for you to obtain an overall picture of how you and your body are doing. Through examinations, history-taking, and diagnostic tests, these programs evaluate your general health, and screen for serious problems like heart disease or certain types of cancer. Sometimes, a lifestyle assessment is also included to determine your risk for these or other diseases.

A soothing and relaxing massage has a positive psychological effect as it helps counteract the effects of stress. Massage eases tense and stiff muscles and improves circulation. Research has shown that it increases endorphin levels, which stimulate our immune system. Massage also triggers relaxation responses by increasing the depth of breathing and slowing the body’s pace down to a reasonable level for everyday living. It benefits you by creating true relaxation, before stress becomes chronic and damaging.

Massage plays an important role in the dental clinic.

In addition to reducing anxiety and stress, it also slows the heart rate down. Research has shown that when the heart rate is slowed, there is less need for additional anesthesia. Massage also helps to relieve muscle soreness often associated with long dental procedures. All of these responses are beneficial in creating a relaxed and anxiety-free experience while receiving dental care.
