These are the benefits of having a wellness coach. And when it comes to health and wellness in Maryland, Dr. Lisa Leads the field.
The wide variety of approaches to health is why she is unparalleled within this space. Mental, physical and also varying degrees of pharmaceutical avenues gives patients many options in their journey to improving their health. A sound body makes for a sound mind and when the mind is sound it feeds the body, on a neurological level, with good energy. One of the best ways to exercise this mind-body relationship is meditation. For many individuals meditation is a foreign practice. But meditation should be seriously considered for those that are in search of a better and healthier state of mind. Many holistic physicians in the DMV don't offer the development of this skill but Dr. Lisa provides an intermediate introduction to the practice so that you can experience the beginnings of it without feeling overwhelmed by the process. This is also true for the physical meditative practices that Dr. Lisa offers, such as yoga.
