Customization is achieved through the comprehensive health diagnostics that Octave’s wellness experts administer. These 8 assessments provide a complete picture of the member’s entire health and wellness profile: Total Health Diagnostic identifies health conditions such as immune system condition, organ function and brain functionality. Posture Assessment finds imbalances in body posture which can lead to future chronic injuries. Functional Movement Screening locates limitations in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality. Dynamic Movement Analysis detects stresses on the body during movement so that proactive exercises can body correct. Metabolic Age Assessment demonstrates the metabolic age given the distribution of muscle to fat. Examining metabolic age will give insights to the overall level of health and wellness in comparison to those of the same age. Heart Diagnosticdetermines heart condition and sets targets for heart rate training. Nutrition Assessment identifies patterning in eating habits and recommends foods to re-stabilize nutrition profile. Wellbeing Compass discovers mindset, stress, habits and emotions which helps Octave practitioners motivate members to stay on track towards their desired goals.
The results of the 8 assessments are used to create a bespoke program for the member in the context of his/her wellness goal. Octave’s experts customize the guest’s program across the multiple practices they embody including:fitness training, nutrition, psychotherapy, physiotherapy, yoga and meditation as well as life coaching and traditional Chinese healing. It is this customized approach coupled with the integration of the best of different disciplines which shifts members towards actualization of their health and wellness goals.
