Miraval Arizona Launchesthe Andrew Weil, M.D. Integrative Wellness Program
Miraval Arizona, the top-rated destination spa resort located in Tucson, has announced the launch of the Andrew Weil, M.D. Integrative Wellness Program starting in August.
This program takes a proactive approach to individual health and wellness, under the leadership of the renowned pioneer of integrative medicine, Andrew Weil, M.D. Based on his philosophy of wellness and healthy aging, as communicated in his book Eight Weeks to Optimum Health, among others, the program gives participants practical knowledge, skills and experiences to help them take charge of their health whether it’s for weight management or for chronic disease prevention.
Guests will have three levels of participation in the program to choose from:
Level 1: “Introduction to Integrative Medicine”Dr. Nicolai will help guests take an in-depth look at how lifestyle impacts their health and make recommendations to begin reducing the risk for developing chronic diseases, as well as exploring the possibility of using alternative treatments to help guide them along their healing journey. 50 minute, in-house consultation.
Level 2: “In-Depth Integrative Medical Consultation” Dr. James Nicolai will work with guests to complete an assessment of their current health status in order to determine the most effective lifestyle changes that can affect longevity and capacity for leading a healthy, joyful life. With his recommendations and referrals to Miraval specialists and activities, he will help guests integrate nutrition, exercise, stress management and, if necessary, supplements, into their approach to health management. Two 50 minute, in-house consultations.
Level 3: “8 Weeks to Optimum Health”
Based on Dr. Andrew Weil’s world renowned approach to optimal health, this program takes guests week-by-week, step-by-step to help set goals and make sustainable changes necessary to create a foundation for healthy living. They will receive personal direction from Dr. Nicolai as well as other Miraval wellness providers specially selected to address their personal issues and goals. Two 50 minute in-house consultations, plus seven 25-minute weekly follow-up phone or remote video consultations.
Miraval guests will also have the unique opportunity to interact with Dr. Nicolai outside of his clinical office. He will be spending a portion of his time alongside guests as they experience Miraval programming, such as a Native American Yoga class, dining in the Cactus Flower restaurant, or in a challenge activity such as Quantum Leap. Where else on earth will you find yourself on a sunrise hike with your doctor? Only at Miraval.
“We are committed to providing our guests with innovative programs that enable them to transform their lives and make healthy choices,” said Michael Tompkins, Vice President and General Manager of Miraval. “The Andrew Weil, M.D. Integrative Wellness Program is the perfect complement to our array of self-discovery and development activities and spa services.”
Guest patient consultations with Dr. Jim Nicolai will be performed in the new Andrew Weil, M.D. Wellness Center, a multi-room suite located in the Ocotillo casita village at Miraval.
