Services for the Whole Family
Swell Juniors (12 and under)
Do you want your kids to develop good habits that will last a lifetime? Do you want them to have fun and learn new skills at the same time? Day camp is a delightful and educational experience. It’s 3 hours long and includes: intro to surfing, making a healthy snack, and doing a science experiment.
Adults and Teens
Intro to Surfing
Surfing is not just about catching a wave. It’s about understanding the ocean, respecting the environment, and taking care of your body. That’s why we start our sessions on land, where we learn how to read the weather, how to paddle and pop up, and how to fall safely. Afterwards, if it’s safe to do so, we hit the water and catch some waves.
Individual and Group Coaching
One-on-one coaching is a personalized approach that allows us to focus on your unique life circumstances, barriers to progress, and opportunities for change. We meet you where you are and work with you to develop a plan that fits your needs and goals. You will have the support you need to make improvements, no matter your particular environment. Our goal is to help you achieve optimal health and well-being by addressing all aspects of your life, including physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual health.
Group coaching is an effective way to achieve your health goals. It provides a supportive environment that fosters camaraderie and accountability, which are essential for success. Moreover, group coaching is more affordable than individual coaching, making it accessible to everyone. Remember, we are not meant to succeed alone. It takes the right reinforcements and atmosphere to create meaningful change.
Grocery Store Tour
Navigating the modern world can be challenging, and grocery shopping is one example of this. Grocery stores are designed to make you spend more money, and it can be difficult to navigate the aisles and make healthy choices. That’s why it’s important to have a plan before you go shopping, and to shop the perimeter of the store where fresh produce, meat, seafood, and dairy products are usually located. Reading food labels and buying in bulk can also help you make informed decisions and save money. While we may no longer be hunting and gathering in the traditional sense, we are still navigating a complex terrain in our daily lives.
Effectiveness of Coaching
Although health coaching is an evolving profession, there’s sufficient evidence supporting its effectiveness.
The socioecological model exists because social support and environment play a significant role in our ability to reach and sustain our goals. Unfortunately, we don’t always have that support at home or work.
Change is strange, especially in the beginning. The client-coach relationship supports you in defining health on your terms.
Injuries on the Water
The water adds an extra layer of intensity compared to other sports because of changing conditions and exposure to the elements.
Water safety is a vital skill of every water sport participant. Reef, boards and other people are all things to be considered.
Along with the external and environmental hazards, there’s risk of ear problems, shoulder issues and lower back pain.
Prevention is better than a cure. It’s possible to be on the water forever, it just takes a little planning.
Health coaching is an evolving field and in the experimental stage of being covered. I can provide you with a Superbill, a detailed invoice that allows you to bill your insurance company directly, for probable reimbursement.
Disclaimer: Health coaching is not therapy or counseling. I cannot prescribe medicine or recommend supplements. If we encounter an issue that needs specific care, we will reach out to your Primary Care Provider (PCP) or call upon an expert in my Referral Network.
