Pulmonary Rehabilitation
The Pulmonary Rehabilitation program is for people diagnosed with pulmonary (respiratory or lung) diseases such as COPD, asthma and emphysema. This program focuses on exercise, diet modification and stress management to control and alleviate symptoms. Research shows a mind/body approach to wellness, emphasizing total health and well-being, has greater benefits than rehabilitation programs focusing only on the lungs.
