Get Well ... Stay Well

While our therapy programs can help you “get well,” our Wellness programs are designed to help you “stay well” and healthy! Although these programs are supervised by our rehabilitation staff, they are not formal rehabilitation. They are more of a personal gym membership that focuses on your general health and fitness. Participants are usually former Rehab patients who desire ongoing “aftercare” support while transitioning to an independent fitness program. However, you do not have to be a former Rehab patient and anyone may join as a “Wellness” member. We offer five Wellness programs and a variety of membership options.

Aquatic Wellness Program
