To Promote ‘Health Care vs. Sick Care,’ OIM Offers Free 15-Minute Consult Through Sept. 15, 2011











A leading Manhattan specialist in neuromuscular skeletal conditions, Dr. Ilan Bohm is the founder of OIM, and is offering a special “15-Minute Free Consult” now available to qualifying new patients.


New York, NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2011

Manhattan’s Dr. Ilan Bohm, a noted health advocate and neuromuscular skeletal expert, has announced an introductory discount special for his offices at OIM, with a “15-Minute Free Consult” with Dr. Bohm now available to new patients.

The limited-time Free Consult will enable first-time patients to experience OIM while also getting the benefit of a personalized consultation with Dr. Bohm, one of New York City’s leading experts in integrative health care. The special is a direct way for Dr. Bohm to emphasize the importance of providing “health care versus sick care,” a philosophy that is vital to his approach to medicine.

“‘Sick care’ encompasses today’s standard approach to treating symptoms not systems, these days,” comments Dr. Ilan Bohm. “But our approach is true ‘health care,’ instead, in which the overall health of the patient is evaluated and treated as a whole. Instead of seeing and treating a symptom at OIM, for instance, we use a combination of applied kinesiology, diagnostic technology, and Western medicine to look for and treat the underlying source. This greatly improves the chances that the patient’s overall health will improve.”

OIM’s 15-Minute Free Consult Special with Dr. Bohm will run through September 15, 2011, and is available for qualifying first-time patients. For more information, please contact OIM at 212.277.4406.

About Dr. Ilan Bohm:

Dr. Bohm has been recognized for his diagnostic and curative abilities since 1980, leading to a long history of patient success, and usually without surgery. Dr. Bohm’s skills in applied kinesiology, a specialized diagnostic tool, enable him to address the primary imbalances that may develop into symptoms that correlate to organs and muscles, establishing patterns of stress that are in conflict with the body. His ability to piece together these imbalances allows Dr. Bohm to draw together various techniques to bring about relief care and reversal of the illness process.

Dr. Bohm studied traditional Western medicine under the tutelage of the renowned Dr. Pierre Rabishong, at the University of Montpelier in France. Inspired by Dr. Rabishong’s work in Biomechanics, Dr. Bohm realized that Western medicine was rooted in the treatment of symptoms, not their causes, and began to pursue training in physical and holistic medicine. He received his degree of Doctor of Chiropractic, then went on to specialize in Applied Kinesiology, founding OIM in 1980. The office has since become an acclaimed oasis promoting health and tranquility with patients and celebrities from around the world.

It’s Never Too Late! is Message of Active Aging Week Annual Event for Older Adults Will be Held Sept. 25 through Oct. 1











Vancouver (PRWEB) September 7, 2006

An annual event, Active Aging Week is held the last week of September (culminating on October 1, International Day of Older Persons). With the goal of introducing older adults to physical activity and exercise options, participating organizations offer free classes, educational seminars, access to fitness facilities, health fairs, community walks or tennis matches.

“The World Health Organization designated October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons to highlight the fact that there are around 600 million persons aged 60 years and over living around the world today,” said Colin Milner, CEO of International Council on Active Aging (ICAA). “That number will double by 2025. Every country is seeking ways to both harness the experience and skills of the aging population, and to limit the chronic disease and disability we are accustomed to associate with increasing age.

“ICAA launched Active Aging Week to demonstrate that older adults can live life as fully as possible within the six dimensions of wellness (emotional, vocational, physical, spiritual, intellectual, social). Physical activity is not the only focus of an active lifestyle, but it is an important dimension because activity improves physical and psychological functioning, which prepares people overall for their home and work lives.”

Free Active Aging Week events are scheduled throughout the last week of September by seniors organizations, retirement communities, seniors centers, health clubs, parks, recreation centers and apartment/condominium complexes that are age-restricted.

Host organizations may provide a single activity or multiple events during the week. Examples of events that have been offered include group walks (both strolls and faster paced), group-exercise classes, yoga and Pilates classes and tennis or golf games. There may be previews of upcoming activities such as a multi-week fall prevention program or computer class.

“People across the United States and Canada can look for an event near them. It’s free. The organizations that host an Active Aging Week event want to introduce their age-friendly staff and locations to older adults so they know there are places they can go where they are welcome and can start very slowly at their own pace,” said Milner.

This year, Active Aging Week events are available at over 2500 locations throughtout North America including 1,900 SilverSneakers sites, 300 Holiday Retirement Communities, The Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA, the Hebrew Senior Life-Hebrew Rehabilitation Center, Boston MA and the Soloway JCC, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

To find a registered host site, visit ICAA’s Active Aging Week website at http://www.icaa.cc/aaw.htm. The site has additional free materials for older adults, their families and caregivers on finding age-friendly locations. Plus, look for announcements of local events in newspapers, radio and television broadcasts, and posted on bulletin boards.

Organizations who wish to host activities can find free support materials on the web site (http://www.icaa.cc/aaw.htm) including posters of active adults, press releases, certificates, a planning guide and ideas for activities.
