With Every Step You Take, Every Move You Make, You’ll Feel Better

People involved in the Opentrax HIKES program often tell us that they’ve never felt better. Mental health and physical capacity often improve rapidly when participants work with us in any of our unique HIKES© offerings.

Our bodies release endorphins (feel-good chemicals) when we exercise, instantly putting people in a better state of mind. Teaching participants how to naturally harness the power of their own endorphins has had dramatic results.

Hiking in some of the most beautiful outdoor locations and connecting people to nature has proven to be a huge success in this unique program.

Unique Program Delivery

Our unique approach to health care enables us to help participants achieve outcomes that nobody else can. Conventional psychology, counselling or exercise physiology programs often confine people to small clinics and for some, this is not an optimal environment for the required therapy to take place.

In changing the environment and reducing perceived barriers and pressures to our participants, we are able to get far more work done in a shorter amount of time.Learn More
