Discover the Benefits of Animal-Assisted Therapy

At Solace we believe in the healing power of the human-animal bond. Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) isn't just about cuddling with furry friends—it's a scientifically backed approach that integrates animals into therapy sessions to support your emotional, mental, and physical well-being.

What is Animal-Assisted Therapy?

Imagine sitting in a therapy session with a gentle dog by your side while discussing your thoughts and feelings. That's the essence of animal-assisted therapy. Our certified therapists team up with their dog paw-tner to help you achieve your therapeutic goals in a unique and comforting way.

How Animal-Assisted Therapy Can Help You

 • Emotional Support: Animals provide unconditional love and companionship, offering comfort and reducing feelings of loneliness and anxiety.

 • Physical Benefits: Interacting with animals can lower blood pressure, reduce heart rate, and release endorphins, promoting relaxation and stress relief.

 • Social Interaction: Animals can help break the ice and improve social skills, making it easier to connect with others

 • Mental Stimulation: Engaging with animals can enhance cognitive function, memory, and overall mental well-being.

 • Mood Boost: Spending time with animals can elevate mood and increase feelings of happiness and well-being.

 • Skill Development: Through the use of Animal-Assisted Inventions, you can learn important coping skills to help you manage symptoms related to your mental health struggles such as better medication management, learning harm reduction techniques, and building routines to help improve your self-care.
