Healing Through Fun
and Recreation

Rediscover Joy and Well-being
with Expert Recreational Therapy Services

What is Recreational Therapy?

"Recreational therapy is a process that utilizes functional intervention, education and recreation participation to enable persons with physical, cognitive, emotional and/or social limitations to acquire and/or maintain the skills, knowledge and behaviours that will allow them to enjoy their leisure optimally, function independently with the least amount of assistance and participate as fully as possible in society. Therapeutic Recreation intervention is provided by trained professionals in clinical and/or community settings.

The purpose of TR is to enable all individuals to achieve quality of life and optimal health through meaningful participation in recreation and leisure. The profession recognizes the importance of the recreation experience and supports all individuals in having full access to and the freedom to choose recreation and leisure opportunities." (TRO, 2024)

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."
