The LightHeart Institute is Rochester’s leading resource for executive leadership, hope, health, healing and vitality. For over 27 years, the Institute has been credited for effectively guiding client journeys toward leadership excellence, emotional health and well-being, physical vitality and spiritual growth.
Founded in 1987 by entrepreneur Lisa Hill DiFusco at the encouragement and inspiration of surgeon and best-selling author Bernie Siegel MD, The LightHeart Institute’s programs and services are designed to inspire and equip individuals, corporate executives, community leaders, and the greater community with the ability to lead more productive, prosperous and joy-filled lives. The Institute seeks to impact Rochester and beyond, for generations to come. Through the Centers of Intentional Leadership, Holistic Psychotherapy, Functional Medicine, and Spiritual Growth, empowered clients discover their natural ability to succeed and thrive.
This year with a continuing passion for excellence, The LightHeart Institute celebrates its 27th anniversary by heralding into the City of Rochester a new paradigm of medicine called Functional Medicine. Through the expansion of its Holistic Health services the Institute has opened the community’s first comprehensive Functional Medicine Center called The Center for Functional Medicine at The LightHeart Institute.
The LightHeart Institute and The Center for Functional Medicine are conveniently located at 21 Prince Street in the heart of Rochester’s Neighborhood of the Arts, between East and University Avenue. Steeped in history, the Center is housed in a 5000 square foot meticulously restored historic mansion constructed in the early 1900s which fittingly was once the first administration building for the University of Rochester.
