Healthtech Start-up Seeks to Make Preventative Health Coaching More Accessible
Subscribers can receive weekly text message tips centered around sleep, mental health, and nutrition as well as have individual questions answered by certified coaches
In trying to understand these widespread health issues, our team of certified professionals concluded that people - even those who value positive nutrition, sleep, and stress management habits - are often too busy in their everyday lives to consistently consult with dietitians, sleep professionals, and psychotherapists in-person. We believe offering certified coaching in a low-cost, easily accessible format is an efficient method for helping people make small adjustments to their lives that lead to big habit changes, capable of lasting a lifetime.
However, our goal is not to replace those previously-mentioned licensed professionals - just the opposite actually. Our coaching seeks to help people recognize where they may need more in-depth help and our website provides a list of licensed and accredited professionals from each U.S. state to help users find the appropriate help.
We want the perception of self-care to extend beyond meditation and mindfulness and for it to be a practical part of people's lives. Users can sign up at http://www.downshift.us
