Overseen by our medical team, these services broaden our approach and enrich our ability to serve patients. We’d love for you to visit the wellness center adjacent to our medical clinic in Monroe, Georgia. 

Dr. Michelle Plaster and Nurse Practitioner Amber Foster recently discussed several of these new wellness services in our podcast, emphasizing their overlooked impact on overall health. In this blog post, we provide information on cryotherapy, infrared saunas, and IV therapies discussed in the episode. We shed light on these services’ holistic approach to health and wellbeing, providing insights into their benefits and applications.


For decades, professional athletes have used ice baths to recover from hard workouts and competitions. A modern (and dry) alternative, cryotherapy uses supercooled chambers to help individuals who want to accelerate muscle recovery, reduce pain, and improve circulation. By exposing your body to extreme cold for a very short duration, cryotherapy harnesses your body’s own ability to fight inflammation and pain. Cryotherapy is a safe, effective, and all-natural tool used worldwide since the 1970s and is being introduced to Monroe, Georgia, by Our Family Health.

Infrared Saunas

Detoxify, improve circulation, burn calories, and reduce pain and inflammation while you relax in the heated, natural wood infrared sauna at Our Family Health. We offer 3-wave infrared saunas, which are therapeutic tools that use near, mid, and far wavelengths to offer numerous benefits to your overall health. Traditional saunas provide surface sweat by heating the air, while Infrared saunas heat the body from within, offering more healing and wellness benefits. Our Family Health offers the only infrared sauna service in Monroe, providing our community with a valuable wellness tool to address various wellness challenges.

IV Therapy

IV therapy provides a safe, simple, and effective way to boost the body’s performance by providing the nutrients and vitamins needed when they are needed. By intravenously delivering fluids, vitamins, and peptides to the body, our IVs can help enhance overall athletic performance, improve general health, and address specific health challenges.

A Journey into Self-Care and Wellbeing

These holistic therapies represent a paradigm shift towards self-care. They empower individuals to take charge of their health proactively. Whether it’s an athlete seeking recovery, a person navigating chronic pain, or an individual prioritizing mental wellness, these therapies can support meeting your wellness goals 

We don’t just provide these services; we offer guidance, personalized consultations, and a supportive environment to understand what your body needs. It’s about understanding that what we put into our bodies profoundly impacts how we feel. When it comes to your health, you deserve to explore all of the possibilities that nurture your mind, body, and spirit.
