  1. -cardiovascular benefits (lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and reducing platelet stickiness)

  2. -immune system enhancement

Health coaches employ the art and science of coaching psychology to assist others in achieving and sustaining wellness goals, such as, improving diet, exercise, and reducing stress.

Coaches who employ an integrative wellness approach as taught in the M.A. program at California Institute of Integral Studies, also include mind-body tools, meditation, yoga, guided imagery, movement, sound healing, and alternative and complementary healing modalities.

This step-by-step manual offers the essentials of health coaching methodology, theory, practice-based models, session formats, and the integrative approach.
