Holistic Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with improving independence through occupation. Occupations are every day activities (self-care, household tasks, leisure and productivity; i.e. all that you do and the roles that drive the activities.

Ultimately, promoting health & wellbeing and improving quality of life!
