What Makes a Health
Relationships, exercise, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. Health Coaches understand this and take a holistic approach to supporting the whole person. Health Coaches work in many settings and, among other services, provide general wellness and nutrition information; options, recommendations, guidance, and motivation to establish healthier lifestyle routines; and other support mechanisms for achieving client-determined personal health goals.
The World Needs Health Coaches
Health Coaches fill a vital void that complements and does not replace the work of healthcare professionals. Health coaching is now recognized by some of the most acclaimed health institutions as an important tool to improve health and help lower healthcare expenditures.
