What is Wellness?
The term ‘wellness’ is so new, that it’s being used in a variety of contexts.
Wellness is a more expansive concept than health. It includes health and vitality.
Dr. Patrick Gentempo, founder of the Creating Wellness ™ Alliance, came up with a definition for wellness.
Dr. Gentempo defined wellness as:
“The degree to which an individual experiences health and vitality in the three dimensions of their life – Physical, Bio-Chemical and Psychological.”
In order to achieve true wellness you need harmony in these three dimensions of your life. There will always be stresses in these dimensions, but it’s all about balancing the negative and positive stresses to create harmony in your life. The Wellness Care Model is what you should strive to follow on a daily basis. It is based on promoting, regaining and/or maintaining health and wellness. The Wellness Model is true healthcare and what you should follow from the time you get up to the time you go to bed. This isn’t just about your waistline, this is about your lifestyle, empowering you to take control.
In order to achieve true health and wellness, balance in the 3 dimensions is imperative:
- Be Fit
The Physical Dimension: How You Use Your Body
- Eat Right
The Bio-Chemical Dimension: What You Put Into Your Body
- Think Well
The Psychological Dimension: The Mind-Body Connection
Our Creating Wellness center is thrilled to be part of over 300 centers who offer a complete wellness evaluation in the 3 dimensions of health called the Creating Wellness ™ Assessment. The Creating Wellness ™ Assessment Station (CWAS) is a high-tech tool that includes a pre-configured computer, proprietary CWAS instruments, and a Creating Wellness Server System interface. Using over 50 measurements and 5,000 normative data comparisons, our software calculates the Client’s Wellness Quotient (WQ).
The Creating Wellness™ Assessment
The Creating Wellness journey begins with the Creating Wellness Assessment. Using state-of-the-art technology and a comprehensive lifestyle questionnaire, our assessment evaluates your wellness in each of the 3 dimensions.

The outcome of the Assessment is a detailed 7 page Report that tells you your current state of wellness.
