The four quadrants of wellness includes a documented clinical model of comprehensive health evaluation adapted from eastern healing philosophy. This model looks beyond the traditional model of evaluation in healthcare and reinforces that the body was designed to be self-healing and self-regulating when given the proper care. This model challenges practitioners to embrace a broader role in the dimensions of wellness care and encourages clients to take an active role in their healing.
Creating a personal wellness plan is a process that involves addressing the whole person. Your Wellness Connection practitioners are trained and experienced in all four areas of wellness, allowing them to lovingly support clients through self-awareness and healing. Our wellness model strives to identify and address imbalances between each area of health so true healing can begin.
Our wellness journey begins in the heart. Heal the heart and heal yourself.
