The increasing popularity of alternative medicines in the western world has contributed to a focus on achieving an overall state of wellness for the body, mind, and soul. Evidence of the wellness movement can be seen in the ever-growing number of shops, centers, spas, and clinics dedicated to holistic and homeopathic healing. If you want to be a part of this expanding industry and become a wellness coordinator, you can prepare yourself by acquiring the right combination of education and professional skills.

In an attempt to accommodate the growing demand for wellness professionals, many colleges and universities have added degree programs, certificate programs and other courses dedicated to wellness training. If you aren’t aware of any wellness programs in your area, try searching online to get a good idea of the different education programs available in the wellness field. Keywords such as “holistic," “naturopathic," "homeopathic" and “alternative medicine” may also be featured in a wellness program description.

Once you have a list of potential programs or courses, you can narrow down your options by determining which schools will most practically prepare you to become a wellness coordinator. Programs that arrange internships for their students at wellness clinics, spas, or naturopathic shops would give you a competitive edge over other job applicants who also wish to become a wellness coordinator but lack previous professional experience. Some of the topics that should be covered in a wellness program might include wellness products such as herbal supplements, teas, and topical ointments, as well as wellness practices, such as yoga, meditation, and organic nutrition. Many spa or salon services are now also considered part of an overall wellness regime, including detoxifying facials, wraps, and hot stone massages.

In addition to the education one might require to become a wellness coordinator, there are also certain professional skills that are imperative to the position. Good customer service skills are important in a wellness coordinator role as any wellness center is likely to be a customer-facing operation in which the coordinator deals with members of the public. As well, good administration skills, including excellent written, verbal, and online communication abilities are also necessary in a wellness coordinator.
