DURHAM, N.C., Aug. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Durham, NC announced a new partnership with Peggy Gleason RN, NHD, integrative health coach and the founder of Healthy Heart Coach. Gleason, together with the Durham chiropractic care team, will be providing enhanced wellness care services. As the "Healthy Heart Coach," Gleason helps patients get to the heart of their health through behavioral and lifestyle changes, stress management, and nutrition and exercise counseling. This partnership will help empower patients to take active control of their health.
Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Durham, NC announced the formation of a new partnership with integrative health coach Peggy Gleason. Gleason will be providing wellness care in Durham to complement the practice's chiropractic care and drug-free pain management.
"We are excited to announce our new partnership with Peggy Gleason," said Dr. David Leidich, a chiropractor at Chiropractic and Wellness Center. "Gleason is incredibly talented and a tremendous asset to our patients."
Gleason will be offering in-person coaching sessions as well as over-the-phone coaching. She currently provides wellness coaching services for patients in Durham and across the country.
"While chiropractic care addresses physical health, Gleason focuses on behavior change, stress management and nutrition," said Dr. Leidich. "Her complementary approach will enhance our patients' whole body health from the inside out. Not only do our combined services naturally manage pain and support injury rehabilitation, but they help our patients live full, active lives."
Gleason received her integrative health coach certification from Duke Integrative Medicine. She has been a registered nurse for over 30 years and holds a doctorate in Natural Health. Gleason is passionate about wellness coaching as a natural complement for drug-free pain management and chiropractic care.
"Chronic disease is the 21st century's plague," said Gleason. "From obesity to cancer, chronic illness is killing millions every year and severely compromising the quality of life for millions more. Many of my patients are in denial about the severity of their health problems, or fail to see how behaviors in one part of their life impact another. I help patients stop making excuses and take control of their lives."
Gleason begins her sessions by identifying obstacles to her patients' health and well-being. She helps bring mindfulness to her patients' lives, reducing emotional conflict, improving food choices, and increasing self-love.
"My ultimate goal is to move patients away from a state of dis-ease to a state of happiness, joy and a new-found zest for life," said Gleason. "All aspects of our lives are interconnected. From our emotions to our personal beliefs we can take control of our health. Nurturing our bodies starts with a positive lifestyle at home and at work."
