What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine promotes clients and coaches to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and encourage optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each client’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans from the physician that lead to improved client outcomes.

By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, functional medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Functional Medicine Health Coach?

As a health coach I help facilitate change when change is hard.  You doctor may prescribe a change in diet, exercise, sleep or stress management.  That is where I come in as your coach.

You are not a doctor, so why should I work with you?  

Recall the last time you were at the doctor's office.  How much time did you actually spend with your doctor?  Perhaps you didn't even get to see your doctor at all.  Due to the rising costs of healthcare, your family doctor does not have time to listen to what is really going on with you.  They have time to write a prescription and bring in the next patient.  Those ulcers you are dealing with are only pacified by the strong PPI's with side effects.  Until you learn how to control the stress in your life, you will be taking pills forever.

I don't like people telling me what I should do, how will this be different?

As your coach we will co-create goals together in a client focused online session.  In the comfort of your own home we will work together one step at a time.

Yoga and Reiki

Hi Chelsea!

Thank you for the reiki with crystals session on Sunday!  As I mentioned, I've had a couple of other reiki sessions and I was excited to see how ours might compare.  :)  I was pleasantly surprised during our session to note that my throat chakra clearly let it be known to me that it needed some clearing.  I hadn't anticipated that since I started the session thinking about working on other chakras.  I really appreciate your suggestions during the session on where I could focus my intentions.  After our time together, I felt great...very open, balanced, and somehow lighter.  I'm glad you have added this to your other wonderful services and I know you'll be able to help lots of others!  

Take Care,


The woman who teaches stretch is amazing!!
