Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Capital Health Coach announced today the launch of “Health Coach ECN” (http://www.capitalhealthcoach.com) a health and wellness Expert Calling Network (ECN) connecting individuals with high quality health and wellness coaches via paid telephone calls.
“With 75% of all US Healthcare dollars spent on preventable, chronic disease, our health system is starting to shift from a disease-focused system to a health and wellness system. Health coaching, a newer discipline, works with individuals to help set realistic, measurable goals and to empower them to make lasting behavior changes that are the cornerstones of life-long well-being,” stated Molly McCarthy RN, MBA, a twenty-year healthcare veteran, Duke trained Integrative Health Coach and founder of Capital Health Coach. “Our coaches work to engage individuals in their own health. Our team of coaches specialize in everything from nutrition, exercise, weight-loss and even mindfulness practice. We tailor our coaching to each client’s desired goals, and believe that our client’s health is their greatest asset.”
A growing body of evidence supports the effectiveness of health and wellness coaching. For example, for people seeking to lose weight, a 2011 Johns Hopkins University study (http://bit.ly/1v0W4Bx) showed that 38% of individuals coached telephonically experienced a weight loss of 5% or greater after two years in comparison to just 19% from a control group.
“We are pleased to power the Capital Health Coach ECN,” stated Brian Christie, CEO of Fanaticall, Inc. “As people strive to control their chronic health conditions, or recover from injury, childbirth, or work to discover their ‘best selves,’ we expect that coaches in this ECN can help people make positive, healthy lifestyle changes.”
Capital Health Coach’s ECN includes handpicked experts that may coach on a range of issues including sleep, stress, lack of energy, weight loss or chronic health issues. Participating health coaches set their own rates to respond to call requests and offer 15, 30 or 60 minute sessions.
Capital Health Coach and Fanaticall, Inc. are both resident to 1776DC, the Washington D.C. business incubator for start-ups in the education, energy, healthcare and government sectors.
In conjunction with the launch, Capital Health Coach’s ECN is recruiting more coaches to its roster. Those with integrative nutrition and/or health and wellness coaching training from an accredited organization are encouraged to contact Capital Health Coach for more information.
