National Educational Video Inc. is announcing the release of their new line: The Senior Health Series. NEVCO officials say that they believe the time is right to help train those who work with seniors in new ideas and practices that will help their patients live better lives. The vast body of medical research has shown that there are major health benefits to be gained when the elderly participate in exercises designed specifically for their needs. This means happier and healthier residents who will then need less in the way of medical care and pharmaceuticals. With seniors living longer and with the Baby Boom generation retiring, NEVCO believes that it is more important than ever to address programming to the needs of this growing market.
The first title in the new series is Senior Health: Beyond Wellness. The focus of this program centers on an exciting new direction in elder care: The Wim Hof Method for Seniors. Wim Hof is famous worldwide and is known as “The Iceman” for his ability to withstand cold and freezing temperatures for extended periods of time. Mr.Hof attributes this to his ability to be able to control his autonomic nervous system. This has been validated in University studies in Europe and the United States.
To help others achieve the same control over their own bodies and the benefits that accrue, Wim Hof developed a program of exercises known as The Wim Hof Method which in currently being practiced by tens of thousands of people worldwide. Through the practice of this method, adherents seek to achieve maximum health through focus, breathing and cold training.
In an effort to improve the lives of seniors, Wim has modified his method specifically for the needs of the elderly population. Senior Health: Beyond Wellness explores the specific exercises that are part of the method and explains the science behind it so as to help health care workers better understand and implement it. NEVCO states that this is an accredited course and can be taken for three elective CE contact hours.
Also being released in tandem is the Companion DVD: Senior Health Beyond wellness – The Exercises. This program is designed to be used by health care facilities as the primary vehicle to instruct and guide their patients through the exercises of the Wim Hof Method for Seniors. This DVD features Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced levels so that seniors of all experience levels can find exercises that suit their needs.
Both DVD’s are being released at a retail price of $325 each. They can be found on the NEVCO Website: https://www.nevcoeducation.com/product-category/the-senior-health-series/
