Hello, I'm Donna Armentrout, the founder of mywellnessquest.com, the coaching and educational arm of Dayton Massage Connection, LLC. Wellness Quest Coaching is a destination for teens and adults looking for a coach to help them find positive ways to deal with daily stressors and feel better about themselves in a constantly changing world.
More importantly, I am compassionate, down-to-earth, and insightful, a wellness and lifestyle coach on a mission. I want to help you discover your natural gifts when it comes to an understanding of how your body communicates in times of stress, such as muscle tension, headaches, lack of sleep, or overeating. Then teach you how to manage this response, so that you feel more relaxed, energized, and free to do the things that make you happy. (note; life is too short to feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders)
Over the last 20 years, as a mind-body teacher, seeker, and professional bodyworker. I have worked with thousands of clients of all ages, from high school and college students, professional athletes, to those in retirement and in between, seeking services for stress relief and ways to improve their health. During this time, I have witnessed how long-term stress, at any age, if not addressed, can adversely affect the mind and body in irreversible ways.
As your coach, I bring together a unique holistic approach when working with clients seeking positive ways to find a healthy work-life balance or developing new habits to improve their lives. Additionally, my goal is to help you tap into your innate strengths and turn those into life skills utilized at any age.
Early in my career, I started noticing how chronic pain affected my client's quality of life, energy, and self-worth, feeling as though "age" or certain activities were causing the problems. As a result, my practice has evolved into introducing self-care tools during each session to empower them. By teaching clients how to use those tools at the moment when situations would arise, they could mitigate the response and continue to do the things they enjoyed, like spending time with family or getting through the workday with less stress and more energy.
My process has evolved over the years as I have blended my teaching experience, where I worked with adults in a trade school setting, along with my corporate training and bodywork. This unique background has increased my kinesthetic knowledge, and intuitive ability, while creating a practical approach to managing stress's long-term effects over time. Specialized programs are a result from this vast experience in helping clients develop personalized skill-sets, a tool-box of sorts to manage life positively; the end goal is that the techniques become a habit and second nature when life throws you a curve, improving your overall health, relationships, and quality of life.
"Donna has been an integral part of our family's health and self-care during these challenging times. She truly takes a holistic approach to health and wellness. She is willing to tackle any subject, offering research, and thoughtful insight."
