Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind-body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being.
Wellness means much more than just being disease free.

Despite great medical advances, our current healthcare delivery model has a long way to go. Chronic illnesses are still on the rise. Many interventions temporize the problem but have little to offer in addressing underlying root causes.
Health coaching introduces a new paradigm. In the process of health coaching, not only do we spend the necessary time to help individual patients become healthier, we also take an active role in preventative care through the identification of potential problem areas before they arise.
The benefits are numerous. From lowered medical costs to improved productivity and happier, healthier employees, corporate wellness programs have been shown to lower disease prevalence rates while motivating employees to their fullest potential. Simplistic programs based just on a collection of tools and resources accomplish little. For wellness programs to work, they have to be customized to the needs of the company and their employees.
Whether a corporation struggling with recurrent lost work days or an individual on their individual health journey, Asheville Center for Health Excellence is prepared to provide the foundation for your journey towards wellness.
