What is Health Coaching?
Health Coaching is education, support, guidance and accountability. The coaching process can help to uncover your motivation to make lifestyle changes. We look at modifiable lifestyle factors such as your food, movement, sleep, stress, environment/relationships, and what you can do in your life that will have a positive impact on your health and well-being.
Coaching is a client centered approach, meaning we focus on what's important to you. Coaching is 100% unique to the individual and no 2 sessions are the same. You get only what YOU need out of coaching.
If you are suffering from chronic illness or on-going, recurring symptoms that persist, it's easy to give up hope that you will ever feel better. I want to restore that hope by lending you my expertise, support, and care so that you may find insight into and harness the healing power your body already has.
My Coaching Tool belt
Functional Medicine Health Coaching is a niche of coaching that focuses on getting to the root causes and the lifestyle factors that impact the underlying causes of disease. These lifestyle factors include food, activity, stress resiliency, sleep, environment, relationships, and habits/behaviors. Functional Medicine seeks to find the ROOT CAUSES of illness, disease, and dysfunction. I am a FMCHC (Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach). Learn more about Functional Medicine here.
Moving the body creates a connection that integrates the body, mind, and spirit. Movement doesn't have to be a strict exercise program, but it can be. It's what YOU need.
Many people have trouble sticking with an activity regimen because they set their goal on something they don't enjoy. Movement should feel invigorating! We will only stick with what we enjoy. With my experience in fitness training and massage therapy, together we create the right movement plan that you follow through with.
It starts with food. We make the choice between healing or disease every time we put a fork, spoon, cup or our fingers to our lips. With an infinite amount of information out there on the web, it's easy to feel overwhelmed with what to eat and what not to eat. I provide clarity, education, and guidance for you in this department. I have easy to follow food plans to get you started! (I hold a degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition from the University of Florida, but I am not a licensed nutritionist).
Stress pushes us closer to disease and further away from wellness. Knowing how to not only manage, but transform your stress removes the physical, mental, and emotional burden we experience from stress. Much of this can be improved by integrating mindfulness into your daily routine.
Meditation & Qigong are great tools for improving your resiliency to stress. Like prayer, meditation & Qigong take you into the parasympathetic nervous system response, which is where the healing and resiliency happen! Read about Qigong here.
