Recreational Therapy

Therapeutic Recreation is the provision of treatment services and the provision of Recreation Services to persons with illnesses or disabling conditions. The primary purposes of Treatment Services, which are often referred to as Recreational Therapy, are to restore, remediate or rehabilitate in order to improve functioning and independence as well as reduce or eliminate the effects of illness or disability. The primary purposes of Recreational Services are to provide recreation resources and opportunities in order to improve health and well-being. Therapeutic recreation is provided by professionals who are trained and certified, registered and/or licensed to provide therapeutic recreation (1987).


Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy is a therapeutic procedure which attempts to improve function through the application of aquatic therapeutic exercises. It is done in a pool, preferably in warm water, to restore movement and strength through the use of heat, buoyancy, and resistance. Aquatic therapy procedures require constant attendance of a therapist educated in performing aquatic therapeutic exercises. When using aquatic therapy interventions, a practitioner must provide a rationale for the use of aquatic as a therapeutic modality. The water is a profound environment for promoting independent movement, trunk and joint stability, various postural techniques and weight bearing status, muscle relaxation, and increasing circulation. Due to the properties of the water, such as hydrostatic pressure, density, and buoyancy, the water can reduce edema, reestablish sensory function, slow coordination movements, assist with movement, allow for pain avoidance, and advance therapist handling.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy can be beneficial to all people and applied as either a treatment technique for acute discomfort or simply an ongoing prevention and maintenance technique for increasing optimal health. The massage process manipulates the soft tissues of the body in order to rehabilitate, augment and enhance the body's function. Massage Therapy helps to alleviate soft tissue discomfort due to occupational stress, over-use, and/or chronic pain syndromes. It is also effective in treating both trauma and injury related pain. Through the holistic view of Massage Therapy, it is the belief that treating the body as a whole, in addition to the area of discomfort, will increase the body's overall wellbeing and improve one.s mind\body awareness.

Occupational Therapy

The World Federation of Occupational Therapists provides the following definition of Occupational Therapy: "Occupational therapy is as a profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation." Occupational therapists use careful analysis of physical, environmental, psychosocial, mental, spiritual, political and cultural factors to identify barriers to occupation. Occupational therapy draws from the fields of medicine, psychology, sociology, anthropology, ethnography, architecture and many other disciplines in developing its knowledge base. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupational_therapy)
