Zensations Supporting Wounded Veterans / Skiing with Heroes
Zensations is proud to have been chosen (as a CNHC registered massage and complementary therapist) to work with the charity Skiing with Heroes / Supporting Wounded Veterans – to provide massage, aromatherapy and reflexology to wounded campaign soldiers who may benefit from these therapies.
Skiing with Heroes / Supporting Wounded Veterans is a UK-based charity that supports wounded soldiers, including those that have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. These veterans are battling with both physical and mental injuries. The charity helps rebuild their futures through a unique, ski-based development, mentoring and job-finding programme.
Every year the charity provide a carefully selected group of medically discharged military personnel with seven days “skihabilitation” in the Swiss resort of Klosters, which enables them to regain their confidence and embark up a new path to fitness and wellbeing.
Once back in the UK, the veterans join a mentoring and job-finding programme that supports them into re-training and employment. The ultimate aim is to help veterans re-integrate into society, ensuring long-term stability for themselves and their families.
If you would like to get involved with the charity: donate, fundraise, as a mentor, as an employer, as a ski-buddy please visit www.supportingwoundedveterans.com
