Local Integrative Medical Center Doubles System Size – D.C. Center Opening May 2015 
Columbia, Md. (April 7, 2015) –
 Nava Health and Vitality Center, a brand of integrative medical centers from Ascend One Corp., announced today that it will open two new Center locations this year within the DC metro area.With current Center locations open in Chevy Chase and Columbia, Md., the addition of these new locations, located at 1800 M Street NW in Washington, D.C. and at 11568 Old Georgetown Road at Pike & Rose in North Bethesda, Md., will double the brand’s system size.“By bringing our integrative approach to health to new audiences within the DC area, we’re offering alternative practices that most people haven’t been exposed to before and we do it in concert with their physician,” said Bernie Dancel, founder of Nava Health and Vitality Center and CEO of parent company Ascend One Corp.“In looking for new retail locations, we want to be in markets that have a high population of health-conscious individuals who know that wellness is more than just the status quo, it’s about understanding your body and feeling your best at any age.”

The brand’s DC location is slated to open this coming May, with its Rockville Center opening summer 2015. Nava is exploring additional locations throughout the D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas with additional plans to expand into the Florida market.

“We believe people should know exactly what’s going on with their bodies and be provided with a personalized roadmap to feeling their best,” added Dancel. “We know what we’re doing works, and now our clients are seeing it too.”

Established in 2014, Nava Health and Vitality Centers use a unique integrative approach to health and wellness that is all under one roof, thanks to the company’s proprietary Nava MethodTM.

The Nava Method was designed by the Directors of Integrative Wellness—a team of expert medical professionals with decades of experience in integrative protocols that includes a Medical Director, a Director of Acupuncture, Director of Chiropractic, Director of Nutrition, Director of Massage, Director of Life Coaching, and Director of Medical Operations, all working together to prepare a medically proven integrative protocol.

Nava’s approach to integrative medicine seeks to treat the individual as a whole, not just their symptoms, using a proprietary algorithm that integrates all of the brand’s medical protocols. Nava physicians utilize the data and information gathered through an in-depth personal assessment of lifestyle and goals and combine it with detailed on-site blood work that analyzes more than 65 bio-chemical markers, more than twice that of standard testing.

But it’s not just about doing more testing for the sake of more testing, it’s the way the brand’s physicians and practitioners look at and interpret the data. They view the data differently—their view of normal is not the same as traditional medicine because they are looking to optimize the client’s body as well as their long term health. Upon completion of the assessment and the lab work, clients receive a personalized Custom Vitality Plan (CVP)—the core component of what makes the Nava MethodTM unique. The CVP serves as a multi-faceted proprietary treatment plan for clients that adapts and evolves to meet their needs over time. Derived using an algorithm developed by Nava’s medically-proven protocols, the CVP also provides Center practitioners with a comprehensive integrated plan for each client they treat.

Nava service offerings include treating the effects of aging, weight loss, chronic pain and sports performance and recovery therapies, and more—all of which work holistically to help resolve client issues ranging from weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, chronic pain, digestive issues, low sex drive, and much more.
