Why is a holistic approach to health & performance so important?

The answer is that the pain usually isn’t where the problem is!

What does that mean? Listen to Paul explain as he shows you how taking a holistic approached helped him to solve chronic sciatic pain in an Olympic Skier.

…and that’s why a holistic approach to health & performance is so important.

For the last century…

… traditional healthcare has acted as though the health problems we face are only and always in the place where the pain is.

But what we’re learning more and more is that the traditional approach ends up fixating on symptoms and NOT the real cause.

And this is why Holistic Health is so important – and why it is central to who we are and what we do at the CHEK Institute!

We teach our students to focus on the root causes of our challenges… we train them to help their clients build habits that support them in their dreams… to forge strong bodies and strong minds that are equipped to fend off daily stresses and energized to drive them forward with their life’s goals!

And that’s just one reason why a holistic approach fo human health and performance is central to the CHEK Institute.

How does the Holistic Approach manifest in the CHEK Institute?
