The acronym D.R.E.A.M. represents the 5 Facets of the Wellness Prism, namely Diet, Relaxation, Exercise, Adjustment & Mental Wellness. Whether our corporate wellness services are provided on-site at your location or at one of our state-of-the-art facilities, we offer the opportunity to experience the D.R.E.A.M. Wellness lifestyle under one roof. We are raising the bar for humanity by providing the information, services and venue for any individual to achieve his/her wellness goals and dreams.
It is no secret that happy and healthy employees are more productive and create higher profits for their employers. That is why corporate wellness programs have gained popularity since the 1980s by companies that were led by forward thinking individuals who were willing to invest in their teams. These visionary leaders have reaped the benefits of decreased absenteeism, unnecessary turnover and gratuitous conflicts among team members.
In the 1990s, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) began to create programs to promote healthier work environments, with initiatives in 2003 and 2008 which included holding employers more accountable to ensuring the health and safety of employees. The programs encompass many health related ‘Lunch and Learn’ workshops with topics including, but not limited to, nutrition, ergonomics, fitness and even meditation.
DREAM Wellness has been at the forefront of these initiatives and a major player in providing such services for companies and organizations since 1998.
THE PROBLEM: Not all companies have thousands of employees like Qualcomm, Target, Safeway, WalMart and Sysco to make it economical for them to have their very own onsite wellness center.
THE PAIN POINTS:
Employers: Absenteeism, poor production, team conflict & crisis management
Employees: Time and money to take care of themselves; busy work schedules and home life
THE SOLUTION: DREAM Wellness will bring life changing wellness services directly to your employees! We offer competitive fees for our services which will pay dividends in cost savings to your company and provide a priceless opportunity for your employees. Our services can be provided as “one-off” for special occasions or on a regular basis.
DREAM Wellness is excited to improve the health and vitality of corporate America with its vast array of offerings.

How well a person functions is ultimately determined by his/her nervous system’s ability to communicate vital information throughout his/her body, which impacts his/her health. Our doctors of Chiropractic are licensed, trained and INSURED to help your employees overcome and adapt to the stresses of everyday living… including those caused by occupational hazards such as long-term sitting, typing and lifting.

5 Facets of Wellness
Many people think that wellness is merely freedom from pain, sickness and disease. We see it as the complete integration of mind, body and spirit, affecting not only your visible body parts, but also the trillions of cells that make up your entire body. It is a proactive approach toward creating physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony. Wellness is much more than just how you feel; it’s how you function!
The 5 Facets of the Wellness Prism are not services; they are categories or aspects of living. Within each facet, there are numerous products and services that will enhance and/or support the wellness lifestyle.
The Five Facets of Wellness
One of the unique aspects or the USP of DREAM Wellness is that we understand and teach the 5 Facets of Wellness; all are which are necessary to truly live a proactive wellness lifestyle. None of the facets are more important than another and they must all be in balance. Many things that you currently do in life that are good for you will actually have a positive impact on more than one facet at a time; and vice versa.
The “D” of DREAM stands for Diet
Everyone has heard the saying, “You are what you eat”. The truth is, “You are what your body gets from what you eat”. Actually, the whole truth is, “You are what your body gets from what you eat, drink, breathe, see, feel, taste, touch and hear”. In other words, diet is everything that enters your body’s internal environment from the external world.
So, what are you putting into your body on a regular basis? What type of movies do you watch? What type of music do you listen to? What type of books/magazines are you reading?
While it is important to breathe fresh air and consume foods and beverages that are rich in nutrients, it is also vital to ensure that what you see, feel, hear and touch is also “nutritious” . The “nutritional value” of your overall diet will ultimately be determined by your body’s ability to process and adapt to its external environment.
The “R” of DREAM stands for Relaxation
Relaxation is more than just sleeping well. In physics, relaxation is defined as the exponential return of a system to equilibrium (balance) following a disturbance. It can also be defined as a state of refreshing tranquility. We see relaxation as a combination of both. It is a physical, emotional and spiritual mind-body connection in which each and every cell gets a chance to call “timeout” for repair and regeneration. When relaxation occurs, your body is more likely to adapt to chemical, physical and emotional stress encountered on a daily basis. How well your body adapts to this stress will ultimately determine your potential for wellness.
The “E” of DREAM stands for Exercise
Exercise can be defined as any activity that requires physical or mental exertion. This “stress” helps regulate metabolism while promoting biochemical balance to the many systems of the which are responsible for running the human body. All parameters of human performance and function are directly improved through the process of exercise.
An individuals potential for wellness will depend on his/her body’s ability to convert the physical, chemical and emotional stress of exercise into constructive energy.
The “A” of DREAM stands for Being in “Adjustment”
As human beings, we live our lives through our nerve system (brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves). How well the body functions is ultimately determined by the ability of the brain and body to communicate with each other. This delicate system is protected by bones that make up the spine (vertebrae). If any bones shift out of alignment, pressure may be placed on the nerves, thereby interfering with the communication between the brain and body (vertebral subluxation). When this occurs, an individual will always be less efficient at adapting to chemical, physical and emotional stress. A “subluxated” person literally has a “disconnection” from above down-inside out (where healing and vitality originate from) and will be out of balance mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. This will eventually cause the body to break down and deteriorate regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms.
All disease processes begin with the body having some type of dis-ease first. Lack of nerve communication between the brain and body can certainly be considered dis-ease!
When a person is in balance mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally; and has a nerve system free of interference, brain/body communication will take place more efficiently so you can perform at your very best! This is what it means to be, “In Adjustment”. Tab 2 content…
The “M” of DREAM stands for Mental Wellness
Researchers are finally recognizing what many “non-traditional” practitioners have been saying all along; “Thoughts are things”, which have the power to create a state of health or dis-ease; produce success or failure; and lead a life of happiness and fulfillment or sadness and despair. Mental Wellness includes the broad spectrum of choices and actions which lead to a person’s self-esteem, self-concept and self-worth. How you “show up” on a day to day basis determines how you view yourself and how others view you. Mental Wellness is the connection of your inner purpose and passion to your outer goals and tasks in all phases of life!
