A Pattern Health Retreat is nestled in the scenic Meramec River region of east central Missouri, about an hour south of St. Louis. Our medically-supervised health program offers a relaxed and peaceful rural setting for a revitalizing health vacation or personalized healing therapy.
Lifestyle sessions include two or more personal consultations with the staff physician, as well as attentive guidance and monitoring throughout your stay by the medical staff. Our physician will review your health concerns, counsel you regarding the restorative steps needed, recommend laboratory and/or other diagnostic procedures, and carefully explain any ordered test results. If you have recently had lab testing done, you may bring the results with you to the program. Otherwise the procedures can be ordered upon your arrival. Please note that although lab work is not included in the program package price, most insurance plans will usually cover the basic tests the doctor may request. The staff physician, Dr. A. Scott Grivas, has practiced both conventional and lifestyle medicine for many years, and is dedicated to blending both for the best results.
The Retreat accommodates up to 12 guests in shared settings, or 6 if requesting private occupancy. Both private or suite-shared bathroom options are available. The dining room provides opportunity for uplifting fellowship, while each guest is individually served with vegetarian cuisine catered to their health needs.
Guest outings to nearby nature attractions afford special occasions for outdoor refreshment and good camaraderie.
