Address the whole person by understanding the body system, the effects of our mind on this system, and by utilizing creative strategies (making adaptations when necessary) to decrease pain (physical and emotional), increase mobility, and to primarily improve function and quality of life. Wellness is more than being free from illness. It's also about engaging in and fully experiencing life, finding and maintaining balance, and learning to capture moments of joy in every day. Mindfulness is one of many life skills to help prevent illness/injury and to positively impact our overall well-being.
Include mind, body, and spirit practices/techniques to promote wellness and to prevent illness/injury. Using these holistic approaches, in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities supported by their depth of knowledge in biology, anatomy & physiology, neurology, and psychology, helps therapists get to the "root" cause of the problem. Educating clients in the value of small lifestyle changes, such as making time for wellness, empowers them to meet long term goals and to, more independently, manage their health.
