Wellness is within reach at The Chicago Body Works. Wellness has traditionally been seen as freedom from disease; thus, if you weren’t sick, then you were considered “well”. This historical perspective on wellness is changing. While virtually everyone agrees that absence from illness is a primary component of being healthy, it doesn’t however indicate anything about your state of well-being. Wellness is closely linked to your lifestyle and the choices you make. Each individual has a responsibility to themselves to provide for the essentials of good health – proper weight control, good nutrition, physical activity and exercise, controlling of health risk factors, and maintaining healthful structure and, thus, function through chiropractic and therapeutic massage.
Research proves that Americans who take good care of themselves and make healthy lifestyle choices are healthier, happier, more productive, miss work less, and have lower healthcare costs. It’s important for you to be educated about your health and “take charge” of your life. While traditional Western medicine is focused on alleviating disease; wellness encourages you to take responsibility for your own personal well-being through management of your physical health and PREVENTION of disease states BEFORE they occur. Wellness is much more than simply an absence of illness and/or disease. Wellness is a proactive and preventative approach that’s designed to provide optimum levels of health.
