Wellness InventoryHolistic Assessment and Life-Balance Program

The WELLNESS INVENTORY is a “whole person” assessment and life-balance program which enables healthcare practitioners, integrative medicine centers, hospitals, and wellness coaches to more effectively serve their patients’ wellness and lifestyle needs.

Based on the seminal work of John Travis, MD, MPH, an early pioneer of the wellness movement, the program supports patients in gaining insight into their state of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. The program then provides tools to transform this new awareness into sustainable lifestyle change and a renewed sense of health and wellbeing.

The WELLNESS INVENTORY provides tools to empower you in working with patients, including individual and aggregate reporting and a personal wellness action plan feature. Licensees can also access tools to facilitate 1-on-1 coaching, follow up, and patient accountability.

The program is licensed to integrative medicine centers, hospitals, wellness centers, universities, wellness coaches, and healthcare practitioners worldwide, and may be implemented in clinical, spa, and employee wellness settings.

The WELLNESS INVENTORY Certification Training is conducted over 13 weeks by live phone tele-class, as well as in 3-day weekend intensives. The Certification Training provides in-depth personal experience and practical knowledge of the Wellness Inventory assessment and personal growth process. The training also provides a unique coaching skill-set to maximize the program’s effectiveness in creating change in your patients’ lives. Graduates include physicians, nurses, social workers, psychotherapists, wellness professionals, nutritionists, and wellness coaches, from over 15 countries.

The WELLNESS INVENTORY is based on the work of wellness pioneer John W. Travis, MD, MPH.  A protégé of Louis Robbins, MD (creator of the Health Risk Appraisal) while a resident at John’s Hopkins and working with the US Public Health Service, Dr. Travis later opened the first wellness center in the US in 1975 and was a founding member of the American Holistic Medical Association. He created the first wellness assessment (Wellness Inventory) for use at the center, and later authored the classic Wellness Workbook which has been used by wellness, nursing, and health promotion educators in universities for over 25 years.
