Have you ever wanted something in your life,
but found you couldn’t achieve it alone?

Susan Castiglia, Holistic RN

Susan Castiglia is an RN with 35 years of traditional and holistic nursing experience.  Among other professional credentials, Susan is a graduate of the renowned Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s Health Coach Training Program. During that rigorous academic program, she studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts, including:

  • Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
  • Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine
  • Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center
  • Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University
  • Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating

From early in her career, Susan recognized that mainstream medicine often fell short, particularly in the way it turned a blind eye to disease prevention. For that reason, the Health Coach Training Program resonated deeply with Susan.  With her newfound knowledge, Susan launched on this brave new path – long before holistic health was widely embraced by the media and the public.

Most recently, Susan founded her own Nutrition, Health & Wellness company, Holistic Care Services, that provides innovative, personalized wellness programs for individuals, families and companies.

Each individual client of Holistic Care Services benefits from a comprehensive Holistic Health Consultation designed by Susan.  The highly personalized, in-depth interview results in recommendations designed exclusively for that individual’s body type, personality and lifestyle. She then follows up with Wellness Coaching that draws on a myriad of modalities. For local NJ area clients, she also offers a unique water fitness experience through Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), a sport in which she maintains multiple certifications. Clients in other regions will be referred by Susan to local instructors.

Working with employers, Susan has been able to apply holistic health strategies to improve employee health, enhance relationship building, and increase company morale.  She leverages her skills in employee-health problem solving and the detailed compilation and analysis of statistical data to provide pertinent findings leading to proven health insurance cost savings.

Susan Castiglia, Holistic RN, draws on her broad background in nutrition, wellness coaching, fitness and preventive health to embrace a unique vision and healing approach – it’s an approach that helps individuals, families, communities, and companies to make better choices for staying healthy and fit. Her programs entail easy to use motivational tools and strategies for ongoing accountability, leading to transformation of body, mind and spirit.

“Early on, my experiences as a young RN quickly revealed the shortfalls of traditional ‘mainstream’ medicine. In particular, it often came too late… it failed to focus on the treatment of chronic health conditions and the prevention of disease. I believe that a better, more forward-thinking approach is to combine mainstream medicine with complementary, naturopathic, and ancient-healing philosophies (Homeopathic, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Yoga) for an all-encompassing holistic, integrative health care program that is designed exclusively for each individual to produce real and lasting results.”
