Wellness Exam Q&A

Blake GI Med Spa Services is a gastro med spa that takes a holistic approach to health and well-being. Though the team specializes in gastroenterology, they care for your whole-body health, not just your gastrointestinal condition or symptoms.

They offer wellness exams to provide the comprehensive evaluations and care you need to live your best life. 

What can I expect during a wellness exam?

The details of your wellness exam at Blake GI Med Spa Services depend on your unique health needs and wellness goals, as well as your age. 

During your wellness exam, your provider asks detailed questions about your lifestyle habits, including diet, exercise, work life, and daily stressors. They also review your medical and family histories and complete a physical exam.

The team also performs osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), which is a hands-on technique used by doctors of osteopathy (DO) to diagnose, treat, and prevent health problems. 

They may also run colon cancer screening tests, depending on your age and risk factors. The practice uses many tools when screening for colon cancer, including Cologuard® with a flexible sigmoidoscopy and a holistic colonoscopy that uses Nitronox™ for sedation instead of intravenous (IV) medication.   

What happens after my wellness exam?

After your wellness exam, the team designs a plan to improve your overall health and reduce your risk of disease. For adults 40 years of age and older, the team uses the Holistic Life Maintenance Plan (HLMP) to improve wellness and well-being.

HLMP is a tool the team uses to teach you how to maintain health by balancing mind, body, and spirit. They conduct HLMP at their state-of-the-art facility, which includes teaching you how to incorporate healthy habits into your daily routine, such as:

  • Stretching and strengthening exercises
  • Creating healthy, balanced meals
  • Learning how to be more self-aware
  • Practicing mindfulness

These tools help you understand the core values of holistic health: body, mind, and spirit. They also teach you how maintaining and balancing these core values leads to better health and well-being.
