How to move better, feel better, live better 
 

Everyone knows exercise helps maintain health, but is exercise safe when recovering from illness, persistent pain, surgery or ravages of hard work and aging?

After an injury or illness, rest is important during the initial recovery, but it is vital to get moving again if you want to reclaim your former abilities.

Movement and muscle contractions lead to improved circulation and respiration which remove toxins and bring nutrients and oxygen to aid in repairing ailing body tissues.  Healthier tissue leads to increased strength, decreased pain and an improved sense of wellness. 

But how to get moving when you are stiff, sore and sick?  Gradually and with movement that doesn't cause more pain. Being able to move without pain leads to moving more freely and enthusiastically which begins the heeling process.  We can show you how to do just that given your individual health concerns.  Recope's team will assess, recommend and monitor your reintroduction to exercise.

You can do it! Exercise to reclaim your health and active lifestyle...move better, feel better, live better !

I cannot say enough good things about Recope! I first started going after I was in a motor vehicle accident 2 years ago. At the time I was 25 and broke my pelvis and back. I found staying positive, staying social, gaining strength and flexibility were the most challenging aspects of recovery. Recope helped me with all these challenges. Since going to Recope, I have had the pleasure of working for Recope.  I have noticed how Recope has helped others in the same way it has helped me.

I work in health care and I found Jean’s knowledge and skills to be exceptional. The staff and volunteers are uplifting and welcoming. The regulars (and non-regulars) make going to Recope fun and engaging.

 We are so lucky to have a well run, affordable rehabilitation option for the community of Summerland! It really is changing lives in the most positive way.

In a word? Recope "changed" my life.  Last year at this time, I was 63 & felt 93 with debilitating fibromyalgia.  I have regained my ability to climb up & down stairs, even carrying the laundry basket.  I can once again sit easily on the floor & actually get up without help!  My flexibility & strength are increasing & life no longer seems like a discouraging dark tunnel stretching ahead of me.  Recope classes are so important to me that I now commute an hour each way three times a week to attend.  I only wish the pool was bigger because I'm absolutely convinced so many people could enjoy more out of life with the help of this program.
