Integrative Health Studies
Prepare to be a leader in the field of health coaching as you study integrative wellness and learn the skills necessary to work with health care professionals in medical offices, CAIM clinics, and corporate wellness programs, or to work as a solo practitioner.
Integrative wellness is an individualized, client-centered approach to health, combining a whole person model with evidence-based strategies and practices. By employing integrative tools such as meditation, breath work, yoga, guided imagery, mind-body techniques, whole foods nutrition, exercise and movement, stress management, and indigenous medicine, health coaches assist others in setting and achieving health goals and in changing lifestyle behaviors.
Our accredited MA program, which has been awarded Transition Approval from NCCHWC, teaches rigorous scholarship, embodied practices, scientific investigation, mind-body-spirit integration, health equity, cultural sensitivity, and community activism. We stress ways of knowing, traditional healing wisdom, and evidence-based modalities to create a multidisciplinary, multifaceted learning environment.
The Integrative Health Studies program has been awarded Transition Approval from the NCCHWC. In addition, MA candidates receive a Certificate in Health Coaching and Wellness Management, along with an optional Certificate in Guided Imagery
