Walking Therapy

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
-Lao Tzu

Walking Therapy gives rise to new beginnings where you are bound to feel some excitement as it spurs creativity and deeper ways of thinking resulting from mood-improving physical activity.

Walking Therapy is a contemporary psychotherapy approach that is increasingly embraced in the therapeutic field. This therapy is conducted outside in nature while walking, rather than sitting inside an office. Many people feel more comfortable and relaxed while walking and are able to open up more freely to deepen their work in therapy.   This holistic approach to therapy will enhance your emotional, physical and spiritual wellness.

Walking Therapy helps support an active lifestyle, or even jump starts one for you. It has a meditative element by allowing your thoughts to flow freely through rhythmic exercise.  Research has shown that Walking Therapy boosts mood, reduces anxiety and depression and supports the process of self discovery. Walking Therapy can help you get “unstuck” when confronting difficult issues by spurring creative and deeper ways of thinking.

Are you are ready to feel empowered?
Feel more in control of your life?
Make more thoughtful choices?
