dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to examine the historical roots of the wellness movement, as well as to draw implications from this data for the future of wellness. The process began with the definition of several key terms and the outline of the problem.Next, the history of health and wellness was summarized beginning with the fifth century and continuing to the present. Taken into account were both Eastern and Western cultural trends. Current literature was then examined which showed the variety of work being done in the field, antecedents to the wellness movement, and the pattern of dualistic thought.The final section consists of two parts. The first part analyzes the previous section, summarizing the origin and development of the concept of wellness. The second part lists and discusses implications for the future.
