Wellness is the state of living a healthy lifestyle. It is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.
Wellness is not a separate entity- it’s an aggregate of our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. It is not a passive or static state but rather an “active pursuit” that is associated with intentions, choices and actions as we work toward an optimal state of health and wellbeing. To achieve wellness we must adopt attitudes and lifestyles that prevent disease, improve health, and enhance the quality of life and sense of wellbeing.
In other words, wellness is proactive, preventive and driven by self-responsibility.
To make this procedure accessible to all our patients we provide Financing options.

Amanda Picord, Program Director and Registered Nurse of Illume Wellness
Amanda Picord has been a registered nurse for over 10 years. She graduated with her associated degree in 2010 and her BSN in 2014.
Amanda worked for many years in the hospital setting including the cardiovascular intensive care unit and was an organ donation and transplant coordinator. She has spent the last three years working in weight loss and wellness. She is a certified personal trainer as well as group exercise instructor. Amanda also has certifications in health coaching and nutrition through Precision Nutrition.
Amanda also has a personal passion for weight loss and wellness. In December 2016, at age 30, Amanda’s weight had ballooned to 300 pounds. She was also diagnosed with high blood pressure, borderline diabetes, and sleep apnea. Through changes in lifestyle that include diet, exercise, and mindfulness over the course of a year and a half she lost over 150 pounds and has maintained her weight loss for the past three years.
With Amanda’s professional experience as well as personal journey, she comes to Illume Wellness with tools and resources to help those who are struggling with their weight from that extra 10 pounds to 100 pounds. Amanda’s philosophy is to create custom plans in weight loss and wellness that are realistic for each person. Her focus in wellness include medical weight loss programs, accountability, fitness, and mindfulness.
“I know what it’s like to feel really bad about yourself, when you feel at your lowest. Physically, mentally, spiritually. I know how hard it is to walk up a flight of stairs and try not to be out of breath. Now, after losing 150 lbs, I know what it’s like to feel really good about myself and if I can help someone feel really good about themselves, well that’s what wellness is all about.”-Amanda
“I cannot begin to explain how extremely pleased I am with my overall results using the Contour Weight Loss program. When on other weight loss programs, I never felt comfortable with their approach nor have I achieved my maximum potential and always felt unsuccessful in my efforts.”
“I cannot say enough about Dr Blake and his program. It has changed my life, and I will be happy to talk to anyone about my experience. The Contour Weight Loss Program is a lifestyle change and an educational program, and I will never be overweight again.”

What type of weight loss and wellness programs do you offer?
Do you only do medical weight loss at your clinic?
Do you take Insurance?
How much do your programs cost?
Do I have to go to a pharmacy to pick up medications if they are on my program?
How much weight can I expect to lose?
How long will results last?
Our programs are designed to give you a jump start on a healthy lifestyle. We do offer long term programs which help give you a jump start along with helping support you while you transition to maintaining. We have learned that maintain can be some of the most challenging parts of weight loss. We have found thought, people who follow our maintaining guidelines of our “Eat More-80%, Eat Some-15%, Eat A little 5%” have long lasting results.
What is the initial consultation like?
How often do I come What is a typical visit like?
Follow up appointments will be either weekly or every other week depending on your program. If you cannot make an appointment in person, we do offer virtual appointments as well. Follow up appointments will include weigh in with body composition, wellness injection, discussing the program, goals from week prior and setting new goals for upcoming week, discussing challenges, as well other support you may need (supplement, recipes, etc…).
What kind of support do I have at Illume Wellness?
What Are the Benefits of Follow Up Visits?
If you are having a great week, we discuss supporting topics like supplements, gut health, fitness, mindfulness. Great weeks are high fives and on track! These are the best times to start working on other healthy habits, not only for weight loss but for maintaining.
If you are having a bad week, we want to still follow up that week, in fact these are the most important follow up visits. Why? Because, when we feel like we “fail” or have “fallen off track” we do not want to come in and get “yelled at” by our team. We never make someone feel bad for having a bad week. As a team, patient, and coach, we discuss the week and trying to find healthier ways to cope with the past week and learning from what happened to make changes so the next time that issue or challenge arises we are better prepared.
