“I feel better than I have in years, and most of that is due to being active at the Holzer Therapy & Wellness Center,” shared Steve White.
In January 2018, White joined Holzer Therapy & Wellness Center. With this membership, he began working out at least four days a week, spending time on a variety of machines at the Center. To date, he has cut his medications in half, eliminating his need for cholesterol medication, and no longer needs a prescription for arthritis pain.
“I felt bad all the time,” shared White. “I was recommended to try the Center by a friend. I was hesitant to join, but I am so glad that I did.”
White is a Type 2 Diabetic, which he has been for over 20 years. He also has neuropathy, and the wellness coaches have instructed him on which type of machines and the variety of exercises to utilize.
“The people are so nice,” continued White. “It’s a great place to join and be a part of.”
White and his wife, Kathy, reside in Bidwell. White is retired, and a United States Marine Corp veteran.
