What is Wellness?
These days, we hear so much about ‘wellness’ in popular media. And most of us would agree that our wellness is a very important part of our lives. But when you ask the question, “What is wellness?”, it can be rather difficult to define.
For the average person, wellness generally means being well – or conversely, not being sick or ill. But this broad definition doesn’t seem very helpful. So, a better question might be: “How do health professionals define wellness?”.
In short, wellness is a state of wellbeing which integrates all of the different aspects of one’s existence, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
At Terapias Elite, our comprehensive physical therapy and wellness center, our team of experts can help you to reach all of your wellness goals.
Of course, we are physical-wellness centered, because we are here – first and foremost – to help you recover from major surgery. But we understand very well that a wellness plan which only incudes physical concerns is incomplete, imbalanced, and lacking in motivational factors.
For a wellness plan to work properly, you as a client must find a balance between all the parts that make you you. And we’re here to help.
That’s why our total wellness approach includes important total-wellness features that go far beyond the physical.
One such feature is wellness coaching. Wellness coaching is a valuable tool that can help you identify your strengths and build on them. It can help you identify specific challenges you face, whether they are physical, mental or emotional. This method can help you build the necessary self-motivation to succeed in all of your goals, even long after you have returned home.
Another feature of our wellness program is yoga.
Yoga is a traditional Hindu discipline involving physical poses, along with mental and spiritual practices that are intended to bring self-unity and relaxation. One great advantage of starting Yoga with Terapias Elite is the ease with which you will be able to continue it, once you have returned home. Yoga is a popular wellness method throughout most of the developed and developing world. So finding a class near you shouldn’t be too hard, we have different clases during the week and soon, there will be more!
Meditation is another valuable tool that can help you to reach your wellness goals. It is defined as a set of techniques that are intended to encourage a heightened state of awareness and focused attention.
Despite objections by some that meditation is a religious activity, it is practiced in different forms by people from most religious backgrounds. This means that, in all likelihood, your own religion uses meditation in some form. And even if you have no religion, you can apply these basic principles within the framework of your own spiritual convictions. And we have found that nearly everybody can benefit from the heightened focus and self-discipline that they acquire by practicing meditation.
So, when it comes to total wellness, Terapias Elite @ Wellness Loft has all of your needs covered. You may come here for a surgery, but you will go home with all of the tools you need to be a healthy, balanced person, living a much happier and more complete lifestyle!
