The Holistic Stress Management Consultant™ plays an integral role in the Mind/Body Medical and Wellness Continuum of Care™ by working with clients outside of the fitness setting. As a practitioner, you are meeting with clients to help them prevent or cope with chronic disease due to stress by developing Mind/Body programs™, which include: stress management coaching, mind/body art™, aromatherapy, breathwork, meditation, energy work, chronic disease self-management training, Shakti training, health promotion, and behavior change. You will also learn how to host affordable retreats to retain clients you already have while marketing to new individuals.
The Holistic Stress Management Consultant™ will administer the Mind/Body Zone Assessment™ to better understand their client's quality of life and stress levels. We also give you access to some of the DNA tests through Toolbox Genomics so you can work with clients on a deeper level. Only certified fitness professionals can conduct our full fitness assessment.
As a practitioner, you can refer clients to certified fitness professionals and group fitness instructors to give them a well-rounded program. If you do not have a Mind/Body Fitness Practitioner™ to refer to you may give the fitness professional general recommendations on working with your client who is stressed.
