Why is Integrative Health Coaching effective in helping people realize their optimal health?
Integrative Health Coaching seeks to empower clients to make lasting health behavior changes that are the cornerstone of life-long well-being.
Coaches work with the whole person. They listen to your concerns and ask powerful questions to help motivate you to make the changes you desire.
Coaches spend time exploring what is most important to you and allow you to choose your course of action for whatever health concern you choose to address.
You and your coach work in partnership to identify obstacles to change and create strategies for moving forward toward your goals.
What might you bring up and talk about in your coaching sessions?
The coaching relationship is unique. The coach and the client form a partnership to better equip you to realize your optimal health based on your goals and values. Essentially any topic you want to bring up that you think will contribute to your optimal health is an appropriate topic for Integrative Health Coaching.
How do you assess your health and well-being now and how would you like it to be?
Are there particular health goals or health behavior changes that you would like to focus on?
How would your life be different if you were to achieve your optimal vision of health and vitality?

Colors around the Wheel of Health denote important areas of focus.
You are the central focus of the Wheel of Health. Mindful Awareness of physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being is the key start the process of positive change.
Self-Care resonates deeply in all aspects of your health and well-being, and is reflected in lifestyle, priorities, motivation, and habits. Recognizing the impact of lifestyle on your basic health, and how it supports basic functions in your life, allows you to rebuild a healthier life from the ground up.
The Wheel of Health identifies seven categories of self-care:
Mind-Body Connection: Awareness of the present moment.
Movement, Exercise and Rest: Activities of daily living like cleaning and gardening as well as dancing, yoga, walking, running, cycling balanced with adequate rest and relaxation.
Nutrition: Eating a balanced, healthy diet.
Personal and Professional Development: Growing and developing one's own abilities, talents and interests, both in 'being' and 'doing', and living with both in balance.
Physical Environment: Spaces where you live and work (light, noise, toxins, color), as well as the landscape surrounding those spaces.
Relationships and Communication: Spending time with family, friends and/or coworkers who are supportive and with whom you communicate effectively.
Spirituality: Seeing purpose and meaning in something larger than one's self; may include religious affiliation or other areas such as nature or the arts.
Professional Care The world of professional care includes therapies that are aimed at staying healthy (prevention) as well as treating conditions that arise (Intervention). Integrative Medicine combines evidence-based therapies from both conventional (Western or Allopathic medicine) and complementary therapies. Providers include physicians, nurses, nutritionists, and other conventional health care workers, as well as integrative health coaches, acupuncturists, massage therapists, psychologists, mind-body therapists, and a wide range of other complementary health care providers.
