are moving online to help their clients.
Who in your life supports your improved health?
Who roots for you, and encourages you when you decide to experiment with making changes to daily habits?
Each person should have a wellness team — people in their lives both professional and personal who offer encouragement and insight on the quest for self-healing and self-improvement.
Do you have a wellness team?
You wellness team might include that friend you go on long Saturday-morning walks with, your spouse who jumps onboard with weekly menu changes that include more vegetables, your medical doctor, a wellness coach, and basically anyone else in your life you truly enhances your energy.
Advancements in communication are making healthy relationships easier to maintain. Not only can you keep in touch with your most supportive friends — even when they live out of town — but you can also maintain easy contact with health-related consultants. For example, Google+ and Skype are making virtual healthcare practice a reality.
There is a high degree of interest today when someone mentions an internet or virtual-based health practice. Health-related questions arise relating to how a virtual practice works: people are curious whether it’s suitable for their personal needs.

All kinds of business consultants have been using social media channels, video calls and video conferencing, but more recently consultants in holistic health have been taking advantage of the technology as well.
Health Practitioners Helping Busy People Create Wellness
Holistic practitioners work under the premise that the body has the innate ability to heal and/or repair itself.
For the repair or healing to occur, anything stressing the body must be removed and the correct building blocks need to be available.
The stressors could include:
- ☉ emotional stress
- ☉ chemical toxins
- ☉ metals
- ☉ organisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites)
The function of the virtual practitioner is to be part of your wellness team and to help you determine if there are stressors present and to develop a strategy or protocol for their removal.
The practitioner must also address a systematic approach for the healing or rebuilding of the body to occur.

Google+ Becomes Part of Holistic Healthcare in the 21st Century
Potential clients of the virtual practitioner generally have gone through the practice’s web site and gained a degree of familiarity with the practice and the practitioner. The potential client tends to be well-informed and prepared with pertinent questions.
First contact between the new client and the practitioner is usually by either email or telephone. Subsequent communications are generally made by video conferencing using computers and free programs like Hangouts on Google+, or Skype.
A virtual practitioner will need to have good listening skills, a wealth of theoretical knowledge and years of prior hands-on clinical experience.
