High Blood Pressure

Take control of your high blood pressure and lead a healthier lifestyle. Our team of experts will support and guide you all the way to a better health and quality of life.

Treatment Process

Initial consultation
At the first meeting (either in person or via phone/video), our nurse will review your medical history, dietary preferences and lifestyle to gain a good understanding of your individual needs. Together we set realistic goals and work together to get your blood pressure under control.

Initial consultation

After the first consultation, we will set up a personal follow-up plan that suits your needs. Many clients choose a health package that includes an initial consultation and 4 or 8 hour follow-up sessions. Our team is readily available by phone or email to answer your questions. During our follow-up sessions, we assess your progress and make any adjustments to your plan and guide you further. Your blood pressure is closely monitored and follow-up sessions last 15 or 30 minutes, as needed.
