Wellness is a holistic approach to living a healthy and happy life. Through the integration and balance of each of the dimensions, individuals move through a continuum toward optimal health and functioning. Importantly, wellness is more than just the absence of disease. Wellness is a positive state in which an individuals knowledge, attitude, perception, and skill of each dimension is critical in establishing the desired behavior for success as they move through the continuum in achieving optimal health and functioning.

A Splendid Earth Wellness assists employers and employees with workplace postures and movement behaviors by evaluating job requirements and employees to design a Wellness and Ergonomics program that corrects musculoskeletal disorders, such as back and neck pain, stemming from environmental exposures such as prolonged sitting or repetitive motions.
Prolonged, stationary postures, such as sitting in a chair, contribute to the development of musculoskeletal disorders. Dr. K encourages people to incorporate alternative sitting by using a stability ball for parts of your workday. Additionally, creating an environment that promotes movement is essential for health. Dr. K suggests simple equipment such as stability balls and resistance tubing.
For more information on how to improve your employees health and wellness, contact Dr. K for a consultation.

The center, the core, the heart - the driving force or source of power for all the movements that we execute. We need a strong center to support all of our tasks of daily living, from standing upright with correct posture to carrying a load such as groceries or the kids around. If the core is weak we will not have good biomechanical alignment and musculoskeletal stability. Powerhouse is a Pilates-based class utilizing classical mat exercises, as well as barre-based movements, bands and stability balls. This class will teach body awareness and control and build long, lean and mobile muscles and joints.
