Wellness Programs

IPMR wellness programs focus on taking charge of your own well-being, emphasizing lifestyle changes to relieve stress and stay in shape. Massage
Wellness massage benefits the body in several ways. It can improve surface circulation, reduce tension, help keep muscles pliable and relieve pain. IPMR certified massage therapists offer wellness massage to those who have completed a course of therapy or to anyone who knows the benefits that massage can offer. This includes new moms, individuals with arthritis, fibromyalgia or other medical conditions, or anyone who wants to feel better.

Exercise Classes
IPMR fitness programs are for people who know regular exercise would be a good idea, but have concerns about going to a health club, or who want a more medically supervised program. Our classes can accommodate individuals with diabetes, arthritis, Parkinson's, stroke, or other medical conditions, or anyone who wants to get in better shape and have fun doing it.

  • Mid-Day Gentle Exercise & Stretching Program
    This "no sweat" class is designed to improve function & minimize pain of conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. It is also effective as a means of working back into an exercise program after a period of illness or inactivity. It includes gentle aerobics, walking, stretching, simple yoga, and balance exercises.
  • Senior Exercise Program
    We have groups at our Sheridan Road division who can choose between twice-a-week or three-times-a-week, or our Downtown division which are held twice each week. A physician's approval is required to participate at either location and an evaluation will be done to make sure the exercises are appropriate for your needs.
  • General Exercise Program - Pekin, Illinois
    This is at our Broadway division in Pekin, Illinois. Classes meet twice-a-week. Again, a physician's approval is required and an evaluation will be done to fit the exercises appropriately to your needs. To schedule for the classes in Pekin, please call (309) 353-IPMR (4767)
  • Independent Exercise Program
    A full array of Lido strength training equipment, along with treadmills and both standard and recumbent bicycles for cardiovascular conditioning are available. Individuals who prefer to exercise on their own rather than in a group are able to use the facilities when classes or therapy are not in session.
