Resilience in Motion

Run Therapy

Running Shoes Photo (1)Stuck body, stuck mind.

Negative thoughts, emotions, and memories have you feeling like it is impossible to move forward.

It feels like you are stuck in mud or on a rollercoaster you never chose to experience.

Traditional therapy often attempts to talk you out of this state of being, but sometimes that doesn’t work.

Run Therapy is different.

Using the body’s own natural healing abilities, Run Therapy helps relieve stress, depression, anxiety, and anger through combining running with other therapeutic interventions.

Running enhances resilience, self-confidence, and a sense of connection and belonging. Other benefits include overall physical wellness and improved memory and ability to learn.

Participants in Run Therapy will each receive an individualized plan and journal developed specifically for their goals and healing.
