Discover lesser-known VA health care services

November 30, 2017

You may know that VA offers health care to eligible Veterans, but did you know VA also offers a whole health approach? This empowers you to take charge of your health and well-being, and live your life to the fullest. The focus of whole health is to improve your quality of life through well-being programs tailored to your needs. While health care options like these are often not covered by private insurance, they are increasingly available through VA.

Five types of services available for Veterans include:

*Rehabilitation programs — Veterans sports clinics, games
*Recreational therapy — Equestrian therapy, adaptive sports
*Exercise and movement — Dance/Zumba, weight loss programs, tai chi, yoga
*Personal development — Vet Centers, music therapy, art therapy, poetry and writing classes
*Recharging activities — Mindfulness meditation, guided imagery, sleep hygiene, acupuncture
