Saranac Lake's tradition of revitalizing peoples' health and well-being began in the late 1800's when Dr. E.L. Trudeau recognized that the mountainous environment seemed to provide a cure for tuberculosis. The development of a pharmaceutical remedy for the disease in the 1950s brought the cure era to a close, yet, Saranac Lake's wellness movement continues.
Today, a broad range of services and activities are available to help enhance your health and well-being. Whether you come to historic Saranac Lake to seek out a professional for one-on-one personal attention, or simply to immerse yourself in the majestic mountains, paddle the gorgeous lakes and breath the fresh air, the Saranac Lake region is the perfect setting for rejuvenation.
Health and Wellness effects every part of our lives. Participating in events like cooking workshops, yoga classes, or a guided hiking outing are all great ways to enhance your quality of life. Dining on a fabulous meal or relaxing in a hammock, Saranac Lake is where all of this is available and more!
