How to Avoid Injury
You will leave your holiday with all the information and motivation you need to continue your new lifestyle.
However, it can still be hard to cope out there in the real world.
We encourage our participants to email us weekly for four weeks after your holiday so that we can offer help and guidance.
We can continue that help or offer more frequent contact as part of our distance mentoring program.
We also offer a stand-alone distance coaching program.
This can be a Clinic-based program consisting of an initial course of one to five clinic consultations backed up by regular email, telephone or skype consultations. For more information, please visit the Clinics page.
Or solely by Skype and email consisting of an initial course of three daily hour-long Skype consultations. Your Personal Prescription Plan is then compiled and delivered to you. This is followed by a further three consultations over the following week or so and regular email contact thereafter for four weeks: Standard cost: £1,200.
