The Salus Wellbeing Programme has been developed over the past ten years through the teams own lived experience. Salus provides positive support and encouragement to people experiencing fatigue from a range of health conditions including:
ME/CFS | Fibromyalgia | Cancer | Coeliac | PTSD | Brain Injury | Hormonal Changes | Depression and Anxiety | Covid-19/ long covid.
Salus began by offering informal, relaxed face to face support groups and workshops led by the Salus team and its experienced, qualified Health practitioners. Salus has delivered education and advice through shared lived experience which has helped empowered people to take small steps to better manage and improve their symptoms and overall health.
Salus groups have provided reassurance to members that they are not alone and there are many strategies we can all put in place to support our own individual wellbeing journey.
Workshops catered for small groups allowing a more bespoke approach with opportunities for:
food demonstrations / tasting sessions
movement / pilates sessions
the exploration of a healthy mind.
With the development of the new online Fatigue Wellbeing Hub, Salus has been able to extend its delivery programme to reach more people effected by fatigue.
Salus invites you to be guided through its wellbeing journey and offers you the opportunity to make informed choices to support your own health. Through our environment, nutrition, the power of the mind, movement and relaxation we believe positive outcomes can be achieved along with a better understanding of how to manage fatigue related symptoms.
The hub opens up content gradually to encourage users to pace their learning and make lifestyle choices which can be realistically maintained over time. The video content is delivered by our experienced and qualified Health Practitioners and is complemented with factsheets and advice from the teams own lived experience.
The videos include:
Nutritional guidance, Demonstrations and Recipes
Breathing Techniques /Strategies
how to set yourself up with a positive mind-set.
We encourage people who are seeking positive support and guidance in how to manage and improve their symptoms of fatigue to subscribe to the Fatigue wellbeing Hub.
The Salus Closed Facebook community is a place where its members can share experiences and offer positive peer support. Salus actively encourages its members to celebrate both large and small gains.
Our Health Practitioners deliver regular live events, with a strong emphasis on nutrition, mind and body. We recognise that we are all on our own wellbeing journey and suggest our community members take just one thing away from the live sessions that they feel they can confidently implement and add to their wellbeing tool box.
The Live sessions are also broadcast on our Open Facebook Page enabling members to share with friends and family so they might gain a better understanding of the challenges managing fatigue can present. This may also provide insights into how they can offer support at home, perhaps by choosing to make lifestyle changes themselves.
The Closed Facebook Group also offers a safe forum for people to discuss and ask questions to others who are going through a similar journey.
A back catalogue of Facebook Live events can be found and revisited on our free Community Hub. https://my.salus.org.uk/community-hub/
