University Health Plans Moving Online: My Yoga Online Unveils New Wellness Program











My Yoga Online University Wellness


Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 16, 2009

Just in time for back-to-school, My Yoga Online, the global mind-body health and wellness resource, is proud to announce the launch of The University Program. Simon Fraser University, The University of Iowa, McMaster University, and York University are already on-board. A buzz is generating across the North American educational system, as more universities follow the advent of preventative healthcare taking precedence across Canada and the US by signing on to the My Yoga Online University Wellness Initiative.

“What’s so great about this program,” says My Yoga Director of Business Development Michelle Trantina, “is that it addresses the key student and staff health concerns really effectively and efficiently. Time-strapped students and staff get instant access to health and wellness videos that address their specific concerns. They get healthier, on their schedule, on their time, in the way that suits them best.” A 2008 Report on Post-Secondary Institutions as Healthy Settings, by the Canadian Council on Learning, revealed that the top three student health concerns are: mental health, including anxiety and depression, sleep deprivation, and stress. Addictions and poor nutrition were also noted. BusinessWeek Magazine reported in 2008 that business schools at the University of Chicago, MIT, Harvard and Northwestern had all instituted yoga initiatives.

In response to these concerns, My Yoga Online’s University Program offers customized video programming that universities can access on their own websites. Students and staff can use the programming from home, at school, or anywhere with internet access. Each tailored program offers related health and wellness videos by top yoga, Pilates, and meditation instructors, plus nutritional experts, and more.

For more information visit My Yoga Online’s University Program.

Michelle Burtnyk, a recent Health Promotion Specialist at SFU, has this to say: “The videos have been extremely popular. According to the number of hits to the page, it’s one of our most popular on-line resources. We felt it was important to offer these videos, in addition to other resources and services, in an effort to decrease back pain and stress in the entire SFU community.”

My Yoga Online is a global resource for mind-body health and wellness and holistic living. They offer hundreds of yoga, Pilates, and meditation videos and expert information on workplace wellness, green living, expert health advice, a Q&A forum with professionals, and more. My Yoga provides health and wellness content and distribution to major airlines, universities, and media providers such as Tivo, York University, the University of Iowa, and Air Canada.

Plastic Surgery Practice in Ottawa Unveils New Site

Plastic Surgery Practice in Ottawa Unveils New Site










Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) July 23, 2011

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Howard Silverman is pleased to announce the launch of his new Web site showcasing his medical practice, Ottawa Plastic Surgery (http://www.ottawaplasticsurgery.com). The new site provides information about the different procedures he offers. Among his specializations are body-contouring, facial sculpting, and breast enhancement, such as breast augmentation and implants in Ottawa.

“I am excited about this opportunity to provide current and potential patients with details about their many options for plastic surgery in Ottawa,” says Dr. Silverman. “For example, in addition to information about breast augmentation, I’ve created an FAQ that explains what is involved in that procedure, from incisions to implant placement.”

The streamlined Web site is divided into different sections by procedure category: Breast, Body, and Face. Included in each section is an overview of the applicable surgical procedures as well as downloadable pre- and post-operative instructions. For example, the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) section is designed to help patients prepare for the surgery. By reviewing the post-operation instructions in advance, they also can know what to expect after the procedure.

“Due to the increasing popularity of non-surgical treatments, I also have highlighted many of the medical spa services that I offer,” Dr. Silverman notes. “For example, my site includes no-downtime treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. I also offer a variety of laser-assisted treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation, as well as laser hair removal.”

Also featured on the Web site are details about Dr. Silverman’s extensive qualifications, including his educational training and professional experience. Profiles of key staff members, including his office nurse, are provided to help patients feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Silverman’s site is designed to give potential patients a sense of the warmth and dedication to exceptional care they will find at his plastic surgery practice in Ottawa.

“I wanted my new Web site to be a reflection of my philosophy and my practice, and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out – it’s clean and professional, it’s informative, and it conveys our commitment to patient-focused care at its highest level,” adds Dr. Silverman. “At every visit, our patients receive timely, compassionate, and completely confidential attention, and that is reflected in this new site. I think it will provide an excellent resource for my current and new patients.”

Howard Silverman, M.D. (http://www.ottawaplasticsurgery.com) offers breast enhancement, body contouring, facial sculpting, and other types of plastic surgery in Ottawa. He also features medical spa treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers, microdermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, and laser skin rejuvenation. Dr. Silverman is a board-certified plastic surgeon and board-certified general surgeon whose training includes earning his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Toronto, an Internship in Surgery at the Toronto Hospital, a Residency and Chief Residency in Surgery at Yale University, Connecticut, and a Residency and Chief Residency in Plastic Surgery at Albany Medical College, New York.
