What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapists help you live a meaningful life; despite the pain, stress or other challenges that may be present.

Occupational Therapy helps you fully participate in life. Everything you do in life; work, cooking, driving and sleeping, are occupations. What we do, defines who we are. If pain, stress, illness or injury prevents us from doing…then who are we?

Occupational Therapy can help with:

  • Managing pain
  • Improving mood
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Getting a good nights sleep
  • Boosting self confidence
  • Self awareness
  • Building relationships
  • Finding meaning in life
  • Goal setting
  • Energy conservation
  • Relaxation training

Occupational therapists work with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.”
