Weekly Cup of Joe - Episode #59 – My Recess Therapy

Read the transcript for this video:

Good morning and welcome to your Weekly Cup of Joe. My name is Joe King. I'm the owner of Physical Therapy Advantage in North Aurora, Illinois. I wanted to come to you today and do something a little bit different. I wanted to give some shout-outs and do some promotional work for some referral partners of mine that have been doing some really good things throughout the Fox Valley region. So this is our first one.  I want to just give a huge shout-out to My Recess Therapy Center in St. Charles, and they have a new center in Elgin as well. Brooke Backsen is the owner, she's the OT and they are a family-focused, sensory-inspired, independently owned pediatric therapy center. They have OT, PT, and Speech Therapy services there. They truly are a team-based emphasis, and that's what their focus is.

They have staff that are passionate, seasoned and very specialized, and they go above and beyond for their clients and their clients’ families. One of the big things they do is they offer educational and empowerment-based classes and services for all their kiddos and for all their kids' families. They truly believe in educating their families and the kids, mainly the families there, what's going on and everything else about what the condition is and what services are out there, and resources are there for them and basically want their families to be able to make the best-educated decision for the family and for the kids. Another thing about the My Recess Therapy Center is that they don't just give to their clients, they also give back to the community. One of their missions is giving back to the community that they live and work in, and they truly do that on a regular basis.

One of the big ones they do on a yearly basis is trunk or treat every Halloween. They basically get people to organizations to sponsor this event. They find a large parking lot somewhere in the Fox Valley region that's going to house them, and they get people businesses, friends, family to come in and open up their trunks to decorate. They get to dress up, they offer a whole bunch of different types of giveaways and raffles, and everything else for the kids, but sensory friendly and, hey just have truly have a fun time. So, like I said, this is just our first time doing some cross-promotional marketing with some referral partners that we've known in the area for the last few years. And our first one goes out to My Recess Therapy in St. Charles and Elgin is their new facility. Their information is below all their website, their social media stuff. Their contact information will be below in the box. Check them out.

If you are in need of those services or you have kids that are in need, you have grandkids that are in need, or friends or family or somebody else, please pass this information along. So have a great day and we look to see you next time for your Weekly Cup of Joe! Bye.
