Medisys Health Group and the Spa Eastman Health Centre Launch New Executive Retreat Program

2009-09-29, from Member

Montreal, Quebec, September 29, 2009 – Medisys Health Group (“Medisys”), Canada’s leader in preventive health services and the Spa Eastman Health Centre, recently honoured as one of America's Healthiest Spas by Health Magazine, are pleased to announce the launch of an executive retreat program aimed at identifying personal health risk-factors and developing effective strategies to address their root causes.

Corporations are increasingly being faced with mounting healthcare costs as well as the cost of absenteeism and productivity loss which can be directly linked to the health and wellness of their workforce; as a result, employers are becoming increasingly proactive with regards to their employees’ health.

“Executives and professionals are faced with pressures, such as long work hours and high-stress environments that may promote behaviours with a negative impact on health. Poor nutrition habits and physical inactivity are just two examples”, states Dr. Sheldon Elman, CEO and Chairman of Medisys Health Group. “The Executive Retreat program runs over the course of 5 or 7 days and focuses primarily on introducing tools to reduce stress, increase physical fitness, optimize nutrition and increasing overall health.”

The process starts with a comprehensive health assessment at Medisys Health Group in order to get an accurate snapshot of the client’s current health status and to identify areas for improvement. This comprehensive check-up includes a complete physical examination by one of Medisys’ physicians, laboratory and risk factor analysis, a stress electrocardiogram, an abdominal ultrasound screening and nutrition and fitness assessments, among other procedures.

Upon completion of the Medisys assessment, clients will then make their way to Spa Eastman in the Eastern Townships to be greeted by a doctor and health coach whose mandate is to immediately immerse the client in health and wellness for the next 5 or 7 days. Clients will consult with a nutritionist and kinesiologist to develop an action plan to address the issues that have been identified in the Medisys health assessment. They will also benefit from a personalized program of spa treatments designed to increase relaxation and reduce stress.

“Our activities, seminars, workshops and consultations are designed to change behaviour and provide the tools needed to increase overall health in a world-class spa setting” states Jocelyna Dubuc, President of Spa Eastman. “By offering an environment that is conducive to implementing changes immediately, the program helps to ensure that healthy behaviours will be maintained over the long term.”
