Advanced Health & Longevity Opens March 1, 2016
Beginning March 1, Essex Wellness Center will offer specialized longevity services geared toward the 50+ crowd interested in aging well physically, mentally and emotionally.
The nation’s 90-and-older population nearly tripled over the past three decades, according to the U.S. Census Bureau and National Institute on Aging, and that trend continues to grow.
“While aging puts a person at risk for several health issues, illness and disability are not inevitable,“ said Essex Wellness Center Founder Heidi E. Kunzli, MS, LADC, adding, “Working on your health now improves the odds for good health later. Advancing age requires advanced health strategies to increase longevity with a high ‘active life expectancy.’ This is a projection of how long a person will stay independent, healthy and well.”
Unmanaged aging can adversely affect quality of life with conditions resulting in:
- Memory decline
- Weight gain
- Smoking and excessive consumption of alcohol
- Chronic pain
- Circulatory issues
- Acute or chronic pain
- Poor self esteem and body image
- Dwindling energy
- Loss of sex drive
- Medication side effects and interactions
- Cancer, hypertension and other aging-related diseases
If this isn’t what you see for yourself as you acknowledge the passage of time, Advanced Health & Longevity offers an array of evidence-based integrative interventions that include complete functional testing and assessments, nutrition consultation, one-on-one stress management, acupuncture, specialized therapeutic massage, hypnosis, health coaching, fitness programming, injectables, facial enhancements and other advanced aesthetics, body wraps, scrubs and more.
Naturopathic physicians Dana Krete, ND, and Derrick Schull, ND, lead a team of highly experienced and knowledgeable practitioners, each of whom is highly regarded as being “the best of the best” in their specific field. Both Drs. Krete and Schull treat conditions related to the “dis-ease” of aging. While Dr. Krete is known for her work with functional assessment and natural treatment for chronic conditions, nutrition, supplements, specially formulated tinctures and Chinese medicine, Dr. Schull’s work has been focused on treating pain and discomfort related to the neuromuscular and skeletal systems. He is also proficient with physical therapy techniques, neurofeedback and craniosacral therapy. Acupuncturist Alicia DeMartin, LAc, specializes in orthopedic conditions such as arthritis, injuries and post-surgical pain following joint replacement.
Advanced Health & Longevity is located directly behind Essex Wellness Center’s anchor location at 28 Main Street in Essex Village with free off-street parking. New patients are being accepted for primary care and a la carte services. Essex Wellness Center is happy to complement care received through a patient’s existing medical professionals and specialists. Some major insurance is accepted; check with your insurance provider.
