HEALTH & WELLNESS COACHING

What is a Health Coach?  

A health coach is a supportive part of your medical paradigm.  We do not diagnose clients, label them, or tell them what we think they should be doing with their life or particular situation.  A health coach views you perfect just as you are.  We don't suggest "fixes." We meet you where you are and hold space for you as you share what you would like to change, or organize, or sort through or achieve, or let go of.  

A Health & wellness coach partners a with client, or group, who are  interested in enhancing their well-being through self-directed lasting changes, aligned with their core values. In the course of their work, health & wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their ability to change, honoring the fact that each client is an expert on their own life while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.

Health & wellness coaches are trained in behavior change theories, motivational strategies, and health education and promotion theories. They support clients in activating internal strengths and external resources to make sustainable and healthy lifestyle behavior changes. Health coaches use a client-centered approach wherein clients decide their goals, engage in self-discovery or active learning processes, and self-monitor behaviors to increase accountability, all within the context of an interpersonal relationship with a health coach.

Whatever goal the client sets, the health coach ensures that they are supported until the desired outcome is achieved. NBC-WHC credentialed  coaches display an unconditional support for their clients and have trained to the highest standards in the profession which means that they have the skills and knowledge to walk alongside you on your path to your healthiest self.

 

What are the Benefits of a Health Coach? 

Health coaches understand that relationships, career, social activity, exercise, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food that you eat. Health Coaches support the whole person.  People tend to hire health coaches to help them with a broad variety of health issues such as weight loss, stress reduction, anxiety, managing chronic conditions, overloaded schedules which lead to lifestyle issues, support with addition behavior, lack of sleep...etc.

AYURVEDIC HEALTH COACHING

Ayurvedic Coaching

What is Ayurveda? 

Ayurveda is “The science of life.” It is the traditional natural medicine of India, dating back over five thousand years.  It is a very comprehensive health care system, which takes into account every aspect of the person and the environment. In The United States, Ayurveda falls under CAM, which stands for Complimentary & Alternative Medicine. Ayurveda supports and respects all traditional medical treatments and works along with them.  

Ayurveda was created for everyone. Its purpose is to heal and maintain the quality and longevity of life.  It focuses heavily on disease prevention. The goal of Ayurveda is to practice good health and bring the body back in balance, as opposed to strictly fighting disease. However, protocols are geared towards the person's specific health concerns, to help restore balance. 

Ayurveda embraces disciplines that support our health, such as massage, herbal medicines, surgical procedures, exercise as well as other physical modalities, rejuvenation of the body, as well as psychological and spiritual counseling.  

 

How does Ayurveda define health?

The definition of health in Ayurveda is when all 3 doshas, digestive fire, all the body tissues & components, all the physiological processes are in perfect harmony and the soul, the sense organs and the mind are in total satisfaction and content. 

When "agni"  (digestive fire) becomes imbalanced, it causes the doshas to become imbalanced, which starts the beginning of the disease process.  Ayurveda recognizes that all diseases have a phycological component as well as physical and emotional.  We look at the mind and the body as "one," not as separate functions.

  • Herbs

  • Oils

What is an Ayurvedic Practitioner? 

An AP is a professional trained to focus on natural preventive healthcare, as well as health promotion with a specific focus on diet, lifestyle, physical and mental health through traditional Ayurvedic medical science principles and practices. An AP can write protocols and recommendations to restore the doshas back to their natural state, or as close as possible.

What does an Ayurvedic Practitioner offer? 

* An AP can determine and analyze a client's unique constitution (dosha)

RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
(Essential Oil Treatment)

Raindrop Technique is a sequence of applying essential oils to the feet and back which promotes health and body balance. The powerful technique combines the healing essential oils with the bodies own energy systems.
 

Vitaflex means “vitality through the reflexes.”  It is based on a complete network of reflex points that stimulates all the body systems.  Energy is released through electrical impulses created by contact between the fingertips and the reflex points.  Vitaflex is integrated in the Raindrop Technique.
 

Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body's natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems. These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body. Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity. The principal oils used include:

  • Valor - This blend contains, spruce, rosewood, blue tansy and frankincense. It helps balance bodily electricities and spinal realignment.

  • Oregano - Highly antimicrobial. Helps clean cellular receptor sites.

  • Thyme – Antiseptic and immune enhancing.  High in phenolpropanoids.

  • Basil – Relaxing to voluntary and involuntary muscles, mentally energizing.

  • Wintergreen – Supports joints and skeletal structure.  

  • Marjoram – Soothing to nerves, used for migraines & is highly antiseptic.

  • Cypress – Supports circulatory and lymphatic systems, highly antimicrobial

  • Peppermint - Supports digestive, respiratory and nervous systems.

The oils are dispensed in little drops from a height of about six inches above the back, which is where Raindrop Technique gets its name. First, the oils are applied to the feet. Then they are massaged along the spine and back muscles. This technique is considered a wellness treatment, not a massage.
 

The whole process takes about an hour and may continue to work in the body for up to one week following a Raindrop Session, with possible realignment and bodily adjustment taking place during this time.
 

"Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy balanced body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper diet. Health is everything we do, say, hear, see, and eat. The Raindrop Technique is only one tool to help restore balance in the body that will result in good health." (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference)
 

PREPARING FOR A RAINDROP TREATMENT

  1. Wear comfortable clothing to the treatment. Note that oils are vitaflexed directly onto the feet and the entire back. 

  2. Remove all jewelry.  Metal interacts with the properties of the oils.

  3. Come to the session hydrated.

  4. These oils are not greasy and absorb into the skin without a residue. 

  5. Enter the space with healthy and positive intentions.

  6. Please communicate any discomfort during your treatment to the facilitator.

  7. Do not leave the center immediately after your treatment is complete.  Allow yourself at least 10-15 minutes to sit and drink water afterward.  It is important to feel relaxed and grounded after your treatment.

 

COMMON QUESTIONS

  1.   Although the oils get absorbed into your skin immediately, they are even more powerful if left on your body for the rest of the day.  Try not to wash them off immediately following treatment completion.

  2. The Raindrop Technique stimulates detoxification of the body, therefore it is critical to drink plenty of water following a session. Try avoid caffeine, sugar or alcohol for a few days.

  3. Some temporary unpleasant feelings can occur while you detox.  These symptoms can include headaches, body soreness or, rash of the skin.
