We’ve designed this program to assist your rehabilitation journey. It is facilitated by an Occupational Therapist, a climbing expert, and a dedicated team of amazing volunteers.
General research suggests the potential benefits of therapeutic climbing, which includes mental health benefits, physical health benefits and social/ emotional benefits.
Due to the growing literature around mindfulness and its use in reducing stress, depression and improving overall quality of life, our team incorporates mindfulness techniques into our climbing sessions. This includes mindfulness meditation during warm-up as well as body awareness and mindful breathing techniques while climbing.
The purpose of this therapeutic program is to use concepts of mindfulness and physical activity to promote mental, cognitive, emotional and physical functioning as per your self-identified goals. We collaborate with you, in a strengths based approach, towards achieving self-identified goals.
