Whether you want to wake up with less pain, change careers, reduce stress, or move more, you can start by participating in a Whole Health course.

What matters most to you?
On the pathway to Whole Health, this is an important question. Whole Health is about treating you, the person. It’s about taking charge of your life and health, to be a partner with your health team in your care, not just an observer.
Whether you are fresh off active duty or have been out of military service for a while, Whole Health helps you take control of your health and build positive habits for life. By identifying what’s important, you can choose care that fits with your health and well-being priorities.

Whole Health means the Whole You
From integrative health approaches like stress reduction, nutrition, and health coaching, to traditional clinical care and complementary health approaches- your journey to Whole Health starts with you.
- Health coaching
- Mind-body therapies and stress reduction
- Nutrition and weight management
- Tai Chi and Yoga
- Art and Recreation Therapy
- On-Demand videos
Each of us has the power to impact our well-being. Whole Health offers health coaching, skills and the support you need to make the changes you want! Many of our instructors are Veterans who participate in Whole Health themselves.
A huge part of helping you meet your goals is providing self-care skills you can practice at home to improve your wellbeing. Classes like yoga, tai chi, meditation, creative arts, and many more are now available through VA Video Connect and on demand videos.
Accomplish your goals
Whole Health means thinking about and approaching your health in a new way. Through conversations and courses, VA staff and Veteran peers will get to know you. They will work with you to set health and well-being goals based on your needs and what matters to you.
Whole Health puts you, not your symptoms, at the center of your care decisions.
Have a Conversation
Tell your health care provider your needs, concerns, and goals.
What matters to you will shape your Personal Health Plan and drive your clinical treatment choices. A yoga class might enhance your flexibility, or a tai chi class might help you manage your pain better.
Whether you want to wake up with less pain, change careers, reduce stress, or move more, you can start by participating in a Whole Health course.
Contact us to get started today. Call 618-993-4147 or email WholeHealthMarion@va.gov. We look forward to meeting you.
