Soma Institute LogoCHICAGO — The Soma Institute, which set the standard for clinical massage therapy education, has raised the bar with the launch of its new Health & Wellness Coaching Certificate Program.

The demand for this field is destined to increase as chronic disease, which accounts for 75 precent of all healthcare costs in the U.S., is causing a huge economic burden and is a primary reason healthcare costs are on the rise.  A Health & Wellness Coach can be the key to both managing and maintaining wellness and to reducing healthcare costs.

“It is with great excitement that we launch our new Health & Wellness Coaching Program,” program coordinator Dr. Amber Mills said. “By deciding to become a Health & Wellness Coach, you will have the opportunity to guide your clients along a path that allows them to change their lifestyles for the better.”
