What is Hike Therapy?
We’ve long understood the benefits of “talk therapy” for the treatment of emotional distress. Science also proves that nature is a powerful medicine. Hike therapy is psychotherapy with a trained mental health professional out on the trail. Getting outside the traditional setting of an office may help you feel more comfortable while discussing painful issues. Hike therapy provides an opportunity to strengthen both your mental and physical muscles. In addition to the various physical benefits of outdoor movement, spending time outdoors has also been linked to lower levels of stress hormones, increased attentiveness, decreased rumination, and improvements in mood. Start improving your mental and physical health at the same time. Request an appointment today!
