The Active Team

With that being said, it is important to us that our patients adapt a healthier and more active lifestyle once completing their treatment regimen in the office. This is why we have formed The Active Team which is a growing group of patients who gather once a month to participate in new and exciting activities! So far we have participated in a yoga class, Pilates Class, a High Intensity Interval workout (HIIT) class, a Spin class and a Mindful Meditation Workshop. Please see below for more information about becoming a member of The Active Team!
