We stress the importance of balance and variety in flavour, colour and nutrients. Many of our recipes are high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. This is important when overcoming chronic pain.
Movement, Exercise and Personal Coaching
We assign you a personal health coach to support you every step of the way. They provide weekly personalised exercise plans, specifically focused on managing chronic pain. Your health coach will work with you to implement new strategies into your everyday life.
Mental Health Services
Living with chronic pain can be incredibly draining and even debilitating to your mental health. Having an emotional support system is critical to helping those recovering from long-term health conditions.
Each programme participant will have access to our qualified counselling psychologists lead by Dr Sarah Bateup. Dr Bateup is an experienced therapist and teacher, having delivered over 30,000 hours of evidence-based therapy and taught at Kings College, London and Exeter University.
Our mental health support services are also available to carers. The provision of this will need to be agreed upon as an addition to the base package.
We’re empowered by our mission to help those affected with chronic illnesses to live freer and more fulfilling lives.
