Did you know our Exercise Physiologists can prescribe exercise to help with mental health?
You probably already know how good exercise is for your physical body. But did you know just how effective exercise can be in improving your mood and sleep, as well as helping to manage mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and stress?
Exercise not only helps to improve the strength of your muscles or your lung capacity, but it also plays the very important role of giving you a sense of well-being. You will have more energy throughout the day, have higher acuity, think more positively about yourself and others, feel more relaxed and ultimately sleep better at night. If you take the exercise “pill”, you will be on the front-line of battling common mental health challenges.
You don’t even have to be a “fitness-junkie” to reap the wide range of benefits exercise provides. The weight of available evidence suggests that even modest amounts of exercise can contribute to this positive difference in your day. Using exercise to improve your energy and overall outlook on life, will allow you not only to get the most out of every day, but to feel better every day!

Great experience with Tom for hand therapy and rehabilitation after a broken wrist. Tom was able to help with both the active and mental parts of rehab and opened doors for me after my recovery to get back into training, beyond my injury. Couldn't recommend the team here highly enough.
