These core principles and values are embedded in each partnership that establishes a Canyon Ranch Institute Life Enhancement Program (CRI LEP):
- We believe that behavior change occurs through participation in a process of engagement on the intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual levels in equal measure. This understanding must be derived from personal experience.
- We are committed to defining, understanding, and improving individual and community health in terms of disease prevention and to improving prevention and increasing health literacy through all programming elements, including lectures, materials, and activities.
- Our program is integrative and inclusive of a wide range of appropriate health modalities.
- Our approach seeks to prevent, diagnose, and address chronic diseases in a way that is culturally and linguistically relevant for every community and individualized for each participant.
