Wellness Planning

Men’s Wellness Experts in Tucson, Arizona

Personalized. Preventive. Proactive.

At the Men’s Clinic, we offer an innovative concept we call Wellness Planning. Much like a financial planner, but for your health and wellness. As men strive for professional and financial success in life, they employ financial planners to execute sound investment plans that maximize returns and minimize risk to ensure their money will be there when they need it. As wellness planners, we guide your health optimization by emphasizing prevention, nutrition, metabolic enhancement, physical and mental fitness to minimize disease progression and slow the aging process. To feel younger than your biological age is possible if certain changes are made in a timely manner.

What is Wellness Planning?

Wellness planning aims to identify current and future health needs and proactively address them to prevent poor health outcomes and optimize the aging process. It serves as a personalized guide on the journey to wellness.


A significant factor contributing to poor health is aging, leading to issues like obesity, muscle loss, heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. These conditions often start developing decades before symptoms appear. While genetics play a role, interventions and lifestyle changes can alter the progression of these diseases.


In our commitment to exceptional wellness planning, we provide a comprehensive assessment and advanced biomarker panels. Our panels go beyond standard lab tests, incorporating cutting-edge lipid and hormone analyses, ensuring alignment with the latest scientific advancements.


The process begins with an in-depth biomarker analysis and health assessment, considering family, personal, and genetic history, lifestyle, and habits. This forms the foundation for a personalized genetic template addressing current and future wellness needs. Local clients or those traveling to our clinic benefit from additional hands-on examinations and specialized tests.


Our progressive recommendations distinguish us from conventional medical practices as we embrace the latest science. Every documented step in your Wellness Plan is geared toward maximizing health, slowing aging, and minimizing the risk of disease progression. As your wellness planners, we take pride in providing sound advice for optimal health and wellness, empowering you to live your best life.

Wellness Planning is Offered Locally and Virtually

We extend our wellness planning services to clients beyond our immediate area through virtual options. While remote clients, unable to travel, may not have access to physical exams and advanced heart and vascular assessments, we want to assure them that our commitment to providing a comprehensive wellness plan remains unwavering.

Wellness Plan FAQs

How long does stress last?

Stress can be a long-term or short-term problem. Sometimes it is difficult to pinpoint the causes of your stress but once you do, you can develop an effective treatment plan to help you cope with and limit your stress.

How can I reduce stress?

To reduce stress, make sure you get enough sleep, eat a nutritionally balanced diet, limit alcohol intake, and exercise regularly. You can also try meditation, supplements, yoga, or cognitive behavioral therapy.

How do mental health problems affect physical health?

Your body is an interconnected system of nerves, electrical signals and hormones that send messages back and forth between your brain and the body. Stress can lead to chemical changes in the brain. Other chemical changes in the brain can cause mental health problems. These changes create imbalances and negative messages that are sent out to the body through the nervous system. This is why people who, for example, suffer from depression or chronic stress may feel tired, low energy, body aches, and reduced appetite.

How do I know if I have coronary artery disease?

Coronary artery disease can start developing in our teens or early twenties. The symptoms of advanced coronary artery disease usually manifest many years later. If you feel a sudden onset of fatigue, have tightness or pressure in your chest, or shortness of breath, you should let your doctor know right away or call 911 since these may be signs of heart disease or other serious medical conditions.

How can I prevent heart disease?

You can prevent heart disease by creating a wellness plan that focuses on good nutrition and a healthy mind and body using clinically proven supplements, exercise, stress reduction, and anti-aging strategies.

What's the difference between chronic stress and acute stress?

Acute stress is a short-term feeling produced by our body to help us cope in situations like a car crash or an argument. We are usually able to calm down and relax after these situations. Sometimes, ongoing problems or circumstances in our lives put us in a state of chronic stress

Can stress lower my testosterone levels?

It is possible for stress to lower testosterone when the stress is prolonged and unmanaged. Try exercising, meditation, or breathing techniques to help you manage, cope with and reduce your stress.

Will exercising reduce stress?

Yes! When you exercise, your body releases natural painkillers called endorphins and other mood-boosting chemicals which help your body and mind feel great. These endorphins reduce stress and create a positive feeling, both mentally and physically.

What will chronic stress and inflammation do to my body?

The entire body is affected by chronic stress and inflammation: headaches, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, low energy, fertility problems, pain, disturbed sleep, and a higher risk for conditions such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.

How does stress cause inflammation, and why is this bad for my body?

Cytokines, chemicals released by stress, are a partial cause of inflammation. When you are stressed, more of these chemicals are released which leads to more inflammation. Chronic stress leads to a state of chronic inflammation in the body.

What Steps Should I Take Going Forward?

Wellness and vitality begin when you decide to take charge of your mind, body, and lifestyle. To meet with our team and take advantage of the many benefits of our program philosophy, contact our Tucson office by calling or filling out our online form.

I found Drs Piercecchi and Monterrosa almost by accident, and all I can say is what a find! The Men’s Clinic for Wellness and Vitality is the place to go if you wish to establish a health baseline that goes far beyond the standards set by the healthcare industry. In my case, Drs Piercecchi and Monterrosa made recommendations on medication and lifestyle changes intended to optimize my health rather than just keep critical factors within some wide range of “acceptable” values. So far, I am extremely pleased with the results. They were very thorough when going through lab results with me and spent all the time I wanted providing explanations and answering questions. If you want to gain control of your health and be proactive in setting yourself up to maximize longevity while maintaining the best quality of life possible, I highly recommend you go to the Men’s Clinic for Wellness and Vitality.”
