Information, Education, And Support To Help You Make Needed Dietary Changes.
About Nutrition Consultation
Nutrition counseling is an ongoing process in which a health professional works with an individual to assess his or her usual dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. The nutrition counselor provides information, educational materials, support, and follow-up to help the individual make and maintain the needed dietary changes.
Aesthetix Plus Medical Spa offers nutrition counseling sessions to help its clients to make and maintain dietary changes. We take the time to listen closely and to understand where you are right now in terms of your lifestyle and diet, and work with you to help achieve your goals. Nutrition counseling can be done by a certified nutrition consultant or a registered dietitian (RD). Both nutritionists and RDs are qualified to create individual action plans to help you adopt a healthier lifestyle.
