Healthy Balance Service


We provide strength and balance exercise classes for people who have fallen, have a fear of falling, feel unsteady or have balance problems, or would like to increase their confidence in moving about safely. The classes take place in community venues throughout mid Essex. The classes last for one hour and are free for the first 12 weeks. Classes take place week days in the following locations across mid Essex: •Burnham-on-Crouch •Maldon •Halstead •Braintree •Chelmsford All classes are led by qualified postural stability instructors who will tailor the exercises to the individual’s needs and capabilities. Many participants enjoy exercising in a group setting so much that they wish to continue after the 12 weeks and there are follow on community classes available for a small fee. When a referral is received by the service an exercise professional will arrange to visit the person in their own home to ensure that the classes will be suitable for them and tell them what to expect. They will also carry out simple measures of strength and balance which will be repeated at the end of the program to see what improvements have been made. People can self-refer by phoning 0300 303 9988 or emailing provide.essexlifestyles@nhs.net directly. People can also be referred by any health or social professional, for example your GP, physiotherapist or social worker.
