HEAL-LIVING OUR BEST LIFE– VCreate is currently researching and developing a new programme for people living with chronic illness.
HEAL is a specialist movement and lifestyle programme that focuses on the individual’s wellbeing in the East Midlands. HEAL is a dedicated approach to connect people suffering from chronic health conditions, providing a new innovative approach to movement for people to feel happier, confident and stronger to live their best lives. HEAL is a game-changer in the way we use movement, wellbeing approaches to open our minds to new possibilities and express ourselves. Heal will be centred on movement and supported by coaching, healthy lifestyle therapies, and digital learning. HEAL is about how we can currently live our lives, how we move, think, learn, eat and use digital technology.
