Take your health from REACTIVE to PROACTIVE.
Dr. Martin does health and wellness events in Durham, Chapel Hill and throughout the Triangle. See if one of the four options below suits your company or group. Or contact us to plan a custom program.
A Shift in Mindset
We all want to be healthy and enjoy life. But too often we wait too long to deal with a health challenge, and we end up having to make reactive decisions health decisions rather than being proactive about our health. Dr. Martin’s “edu-taining” presentations initiate a shift in mindset among your colleagues regarding their health, moving them from passive to active. You will be given tools to not only take responsibility for your health, but also to create victories in pursuit of a better life. Here are our four most popular programs:
1. WELL10 TALKS
This is our most frequently requested event, and it’s ideal for an all-hands staff meeting or larger groups. In a concise 10-minute talk (think TED Talk style), Dr. Martin will challenge thinking around a pivot point that will put everyone in your office on a proactive path to health.
LUNCH & LEARN
Dr. Martin will teach for 30-60 minutes on the subject you choose in a workshop format. Don’t be fooled by the title! These events are not limited to lunch. We can accommodate breakfast talks, snack talks or any other excuse for a time to eat. As a bonus, the meal is provided by our office at no charge to qualifying groups. Our most popular topics include:
• Successful Lifestyles of the Corporate Athlete
• Stress Less America
• Sleep Deprivation, Insomnia and the Solution
• Women’s Health According to Misty May
• Healthy Living to One Hundred
COMPANY HEALTH FAIR
This energetic and informative health fair is typically two hours long and happens in a fun, music-filled atmosphere, often outdoors. You set the location and time, and we take care of the rest! We organize the vendors, entertainment, and in most cases even provide refreshments. All this is complimentary to you and is a great way to provide your employees immediate access to healthcare across a variety of fields.
Your office staff can have a non-invasive, painless and private health screening with Dr. Martin and get immediate feedback. Through interactive health surveys and assessments, we can help identify individuals with emerging health challenges that lead to lower productivity, or worse, absenteeism. Before the event, each participating employee will choose a time slot for his or her screening. By conducting the consultations instantly on-site, Dr. Martin can suggest possible solutions in a private setting and create a comfortable, safe learning environment for the person. This private and personalized moment doesn’t just educate, but engages employees to initiate responsibility and take ownership of their own health.
Live Healthier & Happier with Gonstead Chiropractic Care
So your back hurts. Maybe you can’t even remember the last time it didn’t hurt. You’re popping Ibuprofen like they’re Skittles, and you’re wondering if you might get a little relief from yoga. Is it safe to practice yoga when your back hurts this much? Well, maybe....
PLANKS. Planks engage the abdominal muscles and back muscles, stabilizing the spinal column and mimicking proper lumbar alignment. To do them right and protect your back: Start on your forearms to avoid shoulder strain. Keep your abs tight the entire time. Do not let your back sag. Square your hips with the floor. Have someone take a picture or set up a timed photo/video so you can check whether your back is straight. This is a better way to confirm your posture than using a mirror, because the mirror requires you to twist your neck in the middle of the pose.
