A form of physical rehabilitation that includes task specific activity, practice and repetition. 

4 Components

 

Along with precise cuing for mobility, posture, strength, endurance and developmental movement patterns such as crawling, standing and walking. Founded in the principles of locomotor training and neuroplasticity to promote maximal recovery.

TheraSuit Training

The program utilizes intense exercise based training and the TheraSuit®, a wearable dynamic orthosis that gives constant feedback to the nervous system.

Another part of this therapy is the universal exercise unit, affectionately known as the cage.

"The Grief Recovery Method® is a heart-centred, action-oriented program that is designed to help you complete the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by loss of any kind. Whether you are grieving due to a physical loss, emotional trauma, death or any of the other 40 losses that can create the feelings of grief, the program will equip you with the tools to complete any unresolved emotions that are still causing you pain.

People say “you have to let go” and “move on” but they don’t tell you how. The Grief Recovery Method®, developed and refined over the past 30 years, teaches you how to recover from loss with supportive, emotional guidance every step of the way within a group setting."
