The three sisters who run Be Well, A Creating Wellness Center built their unique wellness program on a basic philosophy: that health?or the lack thereof?is the direct result of the nurturing or neglect of three categories?the physical, the biochemical, and the psychological. Thus, using technological evaluations and the guidance of knowledgeable practitioners, staffers assess clients? health based on the strength of these three categories in their own lifestyle. They refer to the result of this evaluation as a wellness quotient?a numerical number that symbolizes the client?s position on a wellness continuum.
However, it is after this thorough assessment that the real work begins. The practitioners then curate a customized wellness program for each client based on their assessment, drawing from the center?s wide range of services. Clients may see a chiropractor for a misaligned back; they may receive nutritional counseling to help them improve their diet; they may partake in yoga, indulge in a thermal massage, enroll in fitness classes, and balance their chi through acupuncture?all in order to nurture their specific wellness deficits. And throughout the entire process, wellness coaches provide clients with support, encouragement, and constant reassessments to help them view their own progress as they return to vigor and full-body health.
