What is Running therapy?
Running therapy is the use of a calm endurance course, during which you exercise at a moderately intensive level. Research shows positive results of exercising in depression, anxiety, addiction and chronic pain. In addition, exercising strengthens the body, provides relaxation and creates an overall improvement in mood. People who exercise regularly at a moderately intensive level show a considerable improvement in physical and mental health. The running therapy group is supervised by one of our psychologists, who is also trained as a running therapist. The added value of running therapy carried out by psychologists is the extra attention for the relationship between body and mind.
Running therapy is meant for people who suffer from (mild) symptoms, such as gloominess, fatigue and anxiety. Being in shape is not necessary for participation, eveeryone runs at a different speed.
