Health and Wellness Navigation
How do I select the Services/Providers right for me?

InWellness has professionally trained wellness coordinators called "navigators." Their job is to help you navigate clearly through the challenges of your life using the vast variety of resources available. They do this by helping you understand the results of your assessment tools, select resources aligned with your needs and desires, create an action plan and follow through with it to positive and pleasurable lifestyle change. They help you steer your own course and create the attitudes and behaviors that are natural to you.
