Annamarie Pamphilis, Certified Health and Fitness Coach
I began this journey in 1995 when I became a dental hygienist in Cleveland, Ohio. I was dedicated to my career and worked hard, but it wasn’t long before I started to notice chronic pain in my neck, back, and elbows. I also gained weight, developed stomach problems and anxiety. While taking care of patients, most importantly, I forgot about taking care of me and discovered that I had a whole host of issues! Medical doctors prescribed medications that only dulled the pain. Rather than cover up my health issues, I sought to cure my stomach issues, anxiety and aches and pains, I sought a Naturopathic Doctor and my life changed forever.
It's all about Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition
Therefore in 2005, I began to study holistic health through the Trinity College of Natural Health. Through my studies in holistic health, I was introduced to Reiki. A healing energy that anyone could learn and is highly beneficial for reducing stress. In 2009 I became a Reiki Master Teacher after witnessing its many benefits. Furthering my education in health and wellness, in 2018 I became a Certified Health Coach with Dr. Sear's Health and Wellness Institute where I learned all about health through L.E.A.N., an acronym that stands for Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition.
Besides these teachings, in 2019 I earned certifications with:
- ACE Fitness as a Group Fitness Instructor
- SilverSneakers as an Enerchi Instructor
- Tai Chi Easy Practice Leader with the Healer Within Foundation
Above all, these physical activities and knowledge help create healthy individualized programs designed to increase health and wellness holistically.
Annamarie was insightful, passionate and motivating. Her on-site course helped the entire dental staff implement relaxation techniques that we utilize on a daily basis. Patients love the change in energy.
