Health & Wellness

On this page we will keep you in the know about what’s going on at our Wellness Center and will offer more information about living a healthy life!

Virginia Garcia strives to bring practical wellness into the daily lives of the communities we serve.  Being healthy isn’t just about eating the right food or getting enough exercise. It involves every part of a person. Physical and mental. At Virginia Garcia we teach our patients not only how to be healthy, but how to stay healthy.


30 minutes of exercise a day is recommended to maintain optimal health.


10 cups of water a day are recommended.


8 hours of sleep a night help us to stay energized and focused.


Lots of veggies make our bodies happy!
