Wellness Coaches Naturally Take a Holistic Approach
When we hear the word holistic, we tend to project that a less than traditional approach will apply when doing corporate wellness coaching. To the contrary, Registered Nurses have holism as part of their education.
Registered Nurses view patients as more than the sum of their parts, both individually and as members of communities. A Registered Nurse Wellness Coach will provide support and education around the mind, body and have additional education that is complementary to traditional medical care, such as homeopathy (the practice of natural medicine, which usually comes from an organic source. It is believed everybody has a vital force or self- healing response) or naturopathy (a system of treating disease that employs no surgery or synthetic drugs but uses special diets and herbs, vitamins, and massage to assist the healing process).
These specially trained Registered Nurse Wellness Coaches can assist patients in maximizing their wellness by educating patients in these areas of complementary care, in addition to the more traditional wellness support. Since optimal wellness involves balance in the mind, body and spirit, the holistic approach of nurses makes the Registered Nurse Wellness Coach an exceptional healthcare professional in helping individuals and communities improve their health.
Whether it is a more traditional approach, or a holistic approach, it is about establishing a relationship. The goal is still finding the right techniques that motivate participants to change behaviors.
