What is Recreation Therapy?

“Recreational therapy, also known as therapeutic recreation, is a systematic process that utilizes recreation and other activity-based interventions to address the assessed needs of individuals with illnesses and/or disabling conditions, as a means to psychological and physical health, recovery, and well-being. Further, "Recreational Therapy” means a treatment service designed to restore, remediate and rehabilitate a person’s level of functioning and independence in life activities, to promote health and wellness as well as reduce or eliminate the activity limitations and restrictions to participation in life situations caused by an illness or disabling condition.” (taken from on Nov 17/16)

Success Stories

What clients are saying...

"Melissa's enthusiasm and bubbly nature brings a smile to everyone's face. These 2 traits (of many) helped me push through the challenges I faced when I was ready to sit down and deal with the rollercoaster of emotions that I had been avoiding for years.   When you go to sit down with her, not only do you get a feeling of relief (after dealing with a bunch of emotions) but you know that you have also gained a support system that will push you towards living a more fulfilling life.  They say hindsight is 20/20, well from where I am sitting, it was one of the best things I could have done for myself.  Highly recommend."

"My experience with Embrace Rec was wonderful.  I had reached out to Melissa to tell my struggles along with the stories.  We decided together I would invest in TIR.  This turned into the help and strength I had been seeking.  It also led me to a wonderful relationship with Melissa, here mentorship was what I was looking for.  The blocks I was having at times along with poor habits was revealing to me, which lead me some goal setting and success.  Thank you Melissa, lots of love for your spirit and support."

"Melissa came into our family's life during a very tough time with my
13 yr old son.  He had had a traumatic experience that left him angry and defensive.  After meeting Melissa I knew right away she was going to be a good inspiration and friend to my son.   She quickly bonded with him and was able to give him some great insight and how to cope with his crosses through recreation and working with her therapy dog.  She not only challenged him to do different activities but became his health coach.  My son is doing great now and has made a good friend in Melissa.  I thank you for making a tough situation better for our family. You went above and beyond and we are truly grateful.  I would highly recommend her services to all who are in need."
